Maris (1482) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2011
From a 345ml bottle on 10/4/2011. Pours a dark orange approaching amber. Has a relatively slight aroma of fruit, nuts and malt. This is a bit of a weird one taste wise. Most prominent is sweet dark fruit, with some blackcurrant coming through, followed by a relatively short, tart, slightly peppery finish. Notwithstanding the presence of some fruity notes, Im not sure this has been correctly charcterised as a fruit beer. Reminds me a bit of White Rabbit Dark Ale, but more a bit more harsh and less well balanced.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle 34,5 cl. Clear amber golden with an off-white head. A little caramel in the nose, slightly metallic too. Medium body, lightly sweet caramel, again a little metal or iron accents. I believe I can actually pick up a little red grapes, but it may be just because I know they are there. Discreet bitterness. 140211

jesperhammer (4707) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2011
14-FEB-2011, bottle @Mikkeller Bar. Clear amber, redish, fluffy low head. I was curious about this brew with shiraz... ...but nothing like a shiraz here. Only the faintest tartness. Almost watery pale ale like, and then the high carbonation with giant bubbles making it more like a pale ale with coca cola:-)

Bottle 345ml. Great beer. Aromas of caramel, cola, grapes, nuts, and peach. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and good length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a head that doesnt last.
