Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2008
Dark amber colored with little yellow head. Spinach dominates this aroma with berries and sourness. Medium bodied. Flavor starts with sweet berries and caramel, aftertaste turns to drier with with slight lingonberries still. Somehow safty palate. Alcohol is covered finely, only thin tone in aftertaste. Not too bockish one.

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Tuscan Vine, Haderslev. Pours a pretty, clear dark brown-red with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet, quite fruity with some strawberries mixed with caramel. Nice enough mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, lightly spicy with a clear vinious streak to it. There is a nice hoppiness, a slight feeling of cardboard, but not too much. Good caramel sweetness overall. Nice.
