One-year aged bottle, courtesy of Rob the brewer. One bottle tehre then one put into our luggage as well. An above average fruit beer with Belgian abbey yeast messaging the mouth and soft parts. A good nose of fruit. Well malted, the fruit is right there. Unique. jonas (8277) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - APR 3, 2008

Cloudy dark brown color with purple shades. The aroma has a light sourness, more the flavor. Ok, there is some fruit, but there is nothing else interesting here. The aroma has also a light vegetable touch. Weird.
Deep purplish burgundy colour. No head. Aroma of black currant, peppery alcohol, pears, candyish malt. Fruit-first, moving towards a muscular alcohol finish. The malts - while clearly candyish - remain in the background and gracefully disassociated from the currant. Nicely balanced. Svesse (8921) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2007
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 11 Nov 2007) Deep ruby colour with brownish notes, brief brownish red head. Fruity, tart nose with dark notes of black-currant. Fruity, tart taste with juicy notes of black-currant and hints of yeast. Alcohol well hidden. Slightly prickly mouthfeel. Nice and summery brew, but I did prefer their raspberry beer.
