2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Cola colored pour with a khaki head. Sweet dark fruit notes such as raisins and cherries. A bit of cola, lots of balsamic and red wine vinegar, molasses, oak, and a bit of roasted malt. The flavor is almost overwhelmingly sour and acetic. Dark fruit flavor of raisin, cherry, and plum. Cola and molasses sweetness, some roast, a hint of licorice, and oak. Far too acetic for my tastes.

33cl bottle shared with Wim. Dark brown coloured beer with no carbonation and no head, almost a more oily structure. Strange light sour herby hinted aroma. Thicker oily palate. Finish is light sweet fruity sour strong dense and herby. Very enjoyable

Bottle at 124 old rabbit club in NYC. Dark brown CPR with a sweet and sour note. A little too sweet in my opinion. Not bad

Pours a dark purple brown. 3 finger brown head. Nose is cherries, lacto and acetone with raisins. Yeah. very nice. Lots of red grape tannins and skins. Sort of a juicy aspect sour is secondary and a really nice finish. I like this one a lot but it has a syrupy fake ness to it which is a turn off

Red wine barrel character, lots of red wine in fact. Some sourness, but not too much. Very fruity, easy drinking. Spicy.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark brown, no head, just some bubbles. Smells of roasted malts, alot of red wine and oak. Moderate sweet, moderate sour, red wine, oak, more oak and caramel. Light bitter finish. A very nice beer; love the oak and wine tones and the down toned acids

Awesome beer. The aroma is tart cherries, grapees, sour. The flavor is precisely the same, with a little more vinegar sting. The appearance was dark, light tan head. The finish is tart cherry, sour. Medium in body. Excellent represtation of style, reminiscent of Rodenbach.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cl bottle. It poures a deep hazy brown colour with a tanned head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is full of tart cherries and vinegar with sweet red wine. Flavor is similar with tart cherries really coming out with a slight dark bread note and a dry red wine finish. Very tasty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin coarse brown head. Nearly opaque body goes hazy deep dark
red at edges. Earthy chocolatey nougat aroma with nutty spicy
notes. Dry-acidic roasty earthy taste with rhubarb notes.
Thinnish body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry-acidic vinuous rhubarb
aftertaste with fruity notes. Didn’t really very much
enjoy. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
