3.88/5  rDev +9%

375 mL bottle to pint glass

A: Orange-apricot in color, opaque and effervescent. A big, fizzy head forms immediately but quickly recedes, leaving lacing everywhere.

S: Malt-forward bouquet with distinct notes of cherry. The sweet tones are offset by a backdrop of grassy hops and lingering cracker-y, pastry-like aspects. The added cherries are distinct and although there's a nutty undertone you can't parse the almonds.

T: Malt-forward again, with phenolic tones countering cherry sweetness. The almonds poke though more on the palate than the nose, making a nutty, almost oaky nuance. Grassy hops add a little bitterness and round the palate.

M: Chewy, stodgy body although ample carbonation keeps the palate cleansed.

Nothing breakthrough here but a solid fruit-added beer. A lot of brewers taking stab at this style end up with something more like juice than beer. The beer improved as I worked through the glass.

Appearance: Pours an unusual color, sort of a blend between cherry and orange, let's call it burnt orange with a reddish hue; the head is impressive, as is the lacing

Smell: Apparently, the name is a Danish play on words for Risalamande, a rice pudding made with cream and almonds and topped with cherry sauce - that is exactly what it smells like, a rice pudding with both sweet and funky cherry tones as well as an almond edge

Taste: Tastes very much like it smells, with the rice pudding flavors opening followed by the cherries, first sweet and then slightly tart and funky; after the swallow, the almond makes an appearance and builds into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with buoyant carbonation

Overall: I am going against the grain here but I loved this beer - really unusual, too, and that bumps the score for me
