3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Medium offwhite head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Fruity
spicy herbal aroma with coriander and cardamom notes. Dry-sweet
herbal blueberry and cardamom taste with papery notes.
Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry-bitter blueberry and cardamom
aftertaste is a bit harsh, with herbal mealy papery coriander
notes. It’s not really very harmonic, and a bit too harshly
bitter. Ah well. (0.5l bottle, gift from family. This rating replaces an old 3.7 rating from 2007.)

Bottle. Orangey amber, quite clear, small offwhite head. Nice raisins and toffee aroma. Sweet, raisins flavours, but with offsetting bitterness. Lighter body than expected, dryish ending. A nice surprise.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big bottle, the cork just blew off right after I had removed the metal strap. Hazy amber colour with a quite disappointing bubbly small head. Sweet and very fruity aroma with some caramel. Rather thin mouthfeel. The flavour is fruity with weak caramel, priggles on your tongue, weak bitterness. Surprisingly short but dry finish. Short bitter aftertaste. I really suspected more out of this brew.

Dark unclear amber/orange with fine white head. Aroma of malts. Metallic notes. Soft texture with a medium to flat carbonation. Easy spice & little orange, <medium body. Very pleasant, but somehow average!
