COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep ruby brown hued, lightly hazy, artisanal Flemish sour ale. Expect soft toasty malt presence, a light sweetness, and a pronounced acidic tartness. A woody ale that’s remarkably tart! Yet still both gentle and bright. This mega-rare version is aged in French Monbazillac barrels, imparting a dry, woody, fruity, tart, strawberry like finish

Sampled from bottle @ HaandBryggeriet Beer Festival 2012. Dark brown body with no head. Distinct aroma of dry fruit, sour berries, vinous and some warming alcohol like red wine. Flavor is sweet malt, acidic berries, dark berries and warming alcohol. Fine body and acidic fruity aftertaste. A bit sharp in flavor, still very pleasant.

Medium beige head. Deep dark red body. Sugary fruity milky aroma with raspberry notes. Sweet-dryish raspberry milky taste with roasty alcohol notes. Mid-bodied. Sweetish roasty fruity spicy aftertaste with vanilla and alcohol notes. Nice and highly drinkable. (0.15l sample at Haand 2012.)

Sigmund (4949) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2012
At HaandBryggeriet Beer Festival, Drammen. Very dark brown colour, cloudy. No head nor carbonation. The aroma has notes of red wine, red wine vinegar and oak. The flavour has the same elements as the aroma, distinct acidity but not extreme. Quite tasty, but to be honest I’d probably prefer this as a salad dressing rather than a drinking beer.
