3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Maria’s. Pours a deep coppery red with an offwhite head. Nose is tart. Yogurt, cherries, raw lacto, grain and funk. Sour mash and caramel as well. On tasting, a bit less aggressive. Light vinegar and lactic acid, sweeter and fuller bodied. A bit of an odd ball and sloppy, imo. Could use some refinement. Oak and vanilla on finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Henrik. Lovely amber looking in the glass this one. It slightly clouded and it has a small off-white head lingering and lacing on the top. Nose vise it’s really nice! Caramelly sweet combined with lots of red fruits and a wood acidity balancing all the sweetness. Yeah, this is nice. Really tasteful as well. There’s a strong wood acidity, but it’s not sour at all. Feels really balanced with lots of sweet red fruits and berries. Thick and oily in the mouth and it soft and prickling on the bubbles. A near licorice saltiness finishes this one off quite elegantly. A really nice little surprise this. 19.07.2014

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky amber/red body, no head and tiniest carbonation. Shy farm fresh nose, damp fruits. Sultry initial taste, oily and lightly carbonated. Suitably sour with a rigid malt table. Flouff of a bittered tang but a soft waft on the finish. Dry won by linger aided by well spoken carbonation.
