Cask/gravity at the Kingston beer festival, gold with no head and a fruity nose. Dry-bitter and dusty malt, with berry overtones. Interesting but not well integrated. jjsint (3652) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
Cask at the Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh. Light copper or dark gold. Clear with a thin not-quite-white head. Aroma of berries and citrus, it’s pleasant but somewhat unfocused. Sweet taste with a bitter hoppy edge. Some unexpected astringency in the finish. Despite some balance issues, I am quite fond of this. Stuu666 (15526) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2015

Cask @ Crown Inn, Hebden Bridge. Not quite as expected as it’s golden with a creamy head. Has hops in its aroma, with a malt-hop character and only a light smattering of the fruit. Full-bodied. s_hartshorne (2847) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014

Cask gratify at the battersea beer fest. Light pale golden colour with a loose white head. Arom a is blackberry squash sweet sugary fruits. Flavour follows berry sweet fruits. Very little malt or beer but very drinkable. AshtonMcCobb (7091) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2014
On tap @ the Bow Bar Winter beer festival.
Appearance - golden with a nicely proportioned head.
Nose - confectionery, maybe dried fruits. Parma violets.
Taste - more dried fruit.
Palate - medium bodied with a big creamy texture and a tangy but slightly too sweet finish.
Overall - it’s tasty but it doesn’t make me want to have another. Perhaps adding blackberries to a darker stronger beer is more usual and more appropriate.
