Bottle split at the full Abstrakt AB01 to AB25 tasting, #704/3200, big thanks to Kenny for my last Abstrakt tick 14/03/18. Hazy orange amber with a decent light beige head. Nose is plum duff, stewed fruits, whisky marmalade, orange peel, berry pips, strawberry jam. Taste comprises tangy berry fruits, earthy notes, light booze fumes, mellow barrel, sweet and sour bite. medium plus body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a balanced rising boost. This has held up very well ... great stuff for a 7.5 year old fruit beer.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle @Craig’s (Abstrakt tasting). Pours dark copper, slight white head which did go very quickly. Nose is big fruits , cherry pie and fruit cake. Taste is cherry, huge cherry, (Trump hands), the carbonation lifts the beer, tastes a bit like Haribo Tangtastics.

Hazy red-amber color, with very small head. Smell of fruit, yeast and alcohol, jam, cheese. Strong body, caramel flavor with some berries; quite hash alcohol and bitterness. Some late astringency and acidity. Unpleasant.

Holmen1 (6871) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Fra flaske (bottled 080910) på RBHD-treff hos OG: vi feirer Asle Bjørns rating nr. 3000 med denne, som han hadde spart til anledningen. Åpnes med Lumbyes Champagnegalop på anlegget. Jordbær og rips på lang avstand, og gylden med et rødlig skjær og meget kort skum. Tørr, snerpende munnfølelse med preg av gamle bær, eik og vanilje. Besk og med sur magefølelse. Whiskytoner i ettersmaken. Bærer ikke alderen med eleganse.

Sigmund (8159) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared 375 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to abemorsten. Reddish brown colour, moderate to low off-white head. Strong and intense aroma of ripe and over-ripe raspberries, strawberries and oak. Mouthppuckering and astringent dry flavour of oak, over-ripe raspberries and stale strawberry jam, hints of whisky and hops. Uh, well - INTERESTING, to say the least.

abemorsten (3692) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared bottle at RBHD gathering, March 2015. Misty orange golden body with an off-white rim. Inviting vinuous raspberries on the nose. Heavy salty,bitter and acidic, fermented berries, Full bodied and light juicy texture with an alco warmth. Berries and whiskey notes in the finish.
