FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2012
750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop) - shared with Marduk - thanks!
Lovely fruity winey aroma on pouring. Raisiny, but in the glass a classic woody oud broun sour aroma. Crisp body, pleasant oaky buin taste. Raisiny, some other fruits too, aromatic and uplifting too. With yeast, you get quite a burnt taste too, and some butter. Much better poured clear without the yeast. Very complex, sourness at a nice mellow level. Clearlyactually sour, ans well attenuated, so there’s little more than (of?) the fruity sugars remaining. Finish has gentle butteriness, and winey raisins. Lots in here for sour lovers and sour skeptics too.
