Makes a lovely deep scarlet beer, with a pronounced fruit flavour and a delicate honey backnote. Very cloudy, LOTS of sediment. Drinkable 2 weeks after bottling, superb after 4 weeks. A friend said "2 pints of this and you're in wonderland" hence the name Bloody Alice. Good summer beer, best served cold!
