Old Bottle shared with Erzengel! A almost clear dark amber beer with a mid-sized most good lasting beige head. Aroma of raspberries, strong red fruits, soft tart fruits. Taste of riped raspberries, tart berries, grapes, high carbonation.

Old bottle from my cellar. Dry red malty beginning. High in carbonation, refreshing with a deep malty and moderate bitter aftertaste. Sessionable.

I’ve drunk about a dozen of these since release now all gone.

Cloudy red brown with a wild quality. very morish with light but sharp but pleasant fizziness . Nice dry end. Rather Belgian in quality. Very interesting.

Bottle from Mr_H. Dark cloudy brown colour, reasonable head. Soapy hoppy aroma & flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Brewed at Stewart Brewery by students on the brewing course at Herriot Watt University. This is a really good attempt at brewing an American style beer. Look forward to seeing what they come up with next. Really nice bottle too.

Cask. Pours dark red with a small head. Non existent aroma with only a hint of hops. Hides the alcohol though.
