3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Bottled 4/29/12; about 11 months old. Pours murky amber with a medium beige-red head with good retention. Aroma is funky, fruity, brown sugar, dusty; smells good, but it’s not all that forceful. Taste is a little bit sweet, a little tart and savory with a dry finish. A little watery. Mouthfeel is foamy, body medium. Not all that much flavor, really. Not bad. I thought it would be better, though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle from Eggedal Borgerstue. Enjoyed with some nice local elkroast. Pours murky red with a big creamy off-white head that stays there. Aroma is crowberries, some pine. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite easy to drink. Flavour of crowberries and oak. Dry and bitter, light caramel. A very good match for our dinner and we enjoyed both.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Hop & Vine, Portland. Pours a bright red, aroma is a slight funk/tartness, apple and crowberries, very bright. Body is subtly lively without being too tart, if a bit doughy. Very, very easy drinking. Wasn’t honestly sure what to expect with this one, but was pleasantly surprised. Probably wouldn’t rush to drink it again, but an enjoyable detour.
