500ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika in February 2013. Stored in my cellar and shared with Finn and Vegard (untappd) at post Christmas gathering. Naked black surface. Deep ruby-dark in body colour. Oak and tart berries on the nose. Taste of dark caramel, black currant, oak, and dried fruits. Acidity of fruit and berries to a drying finish. Well balanced. Tasty stuff, perfect for sharing (Tromsø, 30.12.2015).

maybe its just me with this type of sour beer. i do drink them and i do enjoy them. this one was very sour with yeasty notes of almost vomit flavor. perhaps i got a bad bottle but there was nothing good about it besides the color and head on it.

Bottle. Moderate dark bread, roasted, caramel and hay for the malt, light herbs and grass for the hops, heavy dried leaves and damp basement for the yeast. Head is large, frothy/fizzy, light brown with darker swirls, with excellent yet slippery lacing, and is mostly lasting. Color is murky dark brown. Flavor starts harshly acidic, then finishes heavily acidic, lightly bitter and sour. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a tart finish. I’m still no fan of this style, but this Sour Brown Ale has some interesting attributes.
