3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
THOUGHTS: The aroma was a little weak. I could taste and smell the cherries, but I couldn’t seem to find the passion fruit in the flavor until the bottom of the can was poured into the glass. That action also made it more sour.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/23/2013. Can. Poured a dark, copper that was slightly reddish in the right light with a small to average, tan head. The last pour from the can was more of a muddy, light brown. The aroma was nice but weak and contained light caramel malt, both sweet and sour cherries, passion fruit, tropical fruit and other sour fruit. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and acidic and lightly sour; while the finish was moderately sweet and sour, lightly acidic and slightly acetic. There was caramel, cherry, sour cherry. other sour fruit, some citrus once the bottom of the can was poured and some sour orange juice. The medium body was a little dry with quite fizzy carbonation and a dry and moderately astringent finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.355l can from what has to be Mikkeller & Friends. A cloudy kinda light bronze dark orange colored thing this with a big lasting and lacing off-white head. On the nose it’s both hoppy and fruity. I get red plums, sweet malty caramel, candied sweet sugar, some red berries like wild strawberries and sweet cherries in addition to lemonade. Interesting aroma, and it tastes even more interesting. Soft gliding oily mouthfeel with a really soft carbonation level. Quite red berry infused in the taste as well. Both strawberries, grass and more lemonade. Not lemons but more wet lemon zest. Mild muddy in a way also. Doesn’t taste bad in any way, but it’s quite a strange fruity a tad to sweet beer this. AH! It was cherries in this one! Knew it! It’s turning super muddy and murky in the last 1/3 of the can. Almost as much that I’m having issues drinking it, but tasting it it just tastes even better than it did initially. 31.01.2014

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
landjetik bij de Bierkoning in Amsterdam, schenkt amber/caramelbruin, wazig met een ietwat bruinige kraag die al snel totaal verdwijnt.
aroma is redelijk fruitig van kers, citrus en passievrucht (meer naar de overrijpe kant).
smaken zijn matig/redelijk zoet, matig bitter, zwak zuurtje van de fruiten, zwakke body, dun van textuur, lage co2, en fruitzurige afdronk.
eigenlijk is het een stevig fruitsap met bier en een bittertje.
