Shrunken cork. Uh oh, smells ozidized - nose is ba barleywine, chocolate, green apple. Taste is tart, some citrus--grapefruit, vinegar, sherry from the oxidation. Some flashes of what I would suppose would be an excellent gueuze if it weren’t oxidized.

Bottle. Mouthwatering geuze aroma. Lemon, vinegar, peaches and apricots. A great blend, worthy of the name, the hype and the price.

Lilja (1585) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Med ölföreningen, smak och doft av trä, ekfat, vått gräs, stall. Torr, stram och mycket syrlig. Fatkaraktär.

Vignale (2038) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Drucken med ölföreningen. Trevlig flaska, gyllengul mousserande vätska som skummar rejält. Relativt snäll syra, men mycket karaktär av funk, stall, fat. Syran stramar upp men är lite rundare och mjukare. Riktigt gott.

75 cl bottle @ Kaisla
Slightly hazy orange color, small head. Very nice sourish notes, mild rowanberries and some grass. Flavor is somewhat sourish with berry notes and grass, mild gooseberries too. Palate is sour and crisp, long lingering tart finish, excellent and quite exciting. Top notch.
