Fruit

TorneroseImmediately to the eye, the colour can best be described as a fusion of orange/brownish/pink. Definite smell of berries: Raspberries, cherries- and rose leaves. Taste is lightly acidic and lightly fruity, with a small bitter hint at the end. Underneath, subtly spiced, all the while calm and well tasty.

Fragrances of yeast and raspberries/cherries. The colour is deep red, interesting & welcoming. When drinking, the first thing that’s presented, are lots of acidity crossed with a comforting sweetness- thereafter, the fruityness from the berries. The sour yeasttaste lingers for long.

KreklingAroma of malt and dark berries. Dark brown colour. Great fresh intro, followed by hints of fruity features and midway, malty taste as main fundament. Light texture and a somewhat short span of taste- a bit weak and passes quickly.
