2.9/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A- Dark grapefruit some orange in the middle of the body, one inch head, was sort of clumpy in the middle. Plenty of lacing.

S- I smelled the almonds but it was in a bad way, like chopped up almonds with their shell, the bitterness was prominent. The cherry flavor was there but didnt seem to be the focus. Got a bit of cough syrup aroma at the end.

T- The almonds are tastier on the tongue, here they appear in a vanilla sort of way. Again the cherries dont play as much as a role as I expected.

M- Highly carbonated, refreshing in a way.

D- Got dreary after a few ounces, it lost its novely. Some sips were more interesting than others. Turned out to be less of an interesting brew than I thought it would be, Ive seen this brewery do more.
Conclusion is dont pay what I paid which was 12 bucks, I wouldnt shell out more than 5 dollars for this average experience.

3.88/5  rDev +9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

4.29/5  rDev +20.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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
