Very dark brown color, thin white head. Aroma of red wine, vinegar and chocolate. Taste is similar. Solid amount of sourness, some frutiness, nice chocolatey sweet finish. Very dry. Fruity. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Interesting.

Bottle from Tanakaya shared at a tasting. Dark brown with ruby highlights and small tan head that dissipates quickly. Great lacing. Aromas of plum, cherry, cinnamon, corriander, clove, prune and raisin with some roasted caramel notes as well. Taste is more of the same. Nice funky tartness, with a bit of roastiness and fruit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Skummar ur flaskan, brunröd med gigantiskt skum. Sötsyrlig doft med mörk vinäger, mörk torkad frukt, fuktigt trä, plommon. Bra balans mellan syra och sötma, fina djupa fruktiga lite murriga smaker. Riktigt gott.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark purplish amber - frothy, well-sustained lace - nose is dark fruit, basement must, light acetic notes, leather, cherries, pie crust, herbs - smells very nice, really - flavor is surprisingly dry and balanced for a sour ale of such strength - moderate tartness, sour earthy fruit skins, mild red wine vinegar, leather, stone fruit, dark bread - has a nice balance you do not often see in sours these days, so I’m really digging it.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel and vinegar. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour with a long warm, sour, vinegar and berry finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice balanced sour beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brown body, large frothy bubbly head. Instable but still okay looking. Fruity sour notes, toasty malts, cereal. Foamy an sour at the same time, actually really nice. Compared to the Phi this is only in aroma somewhat toasty and roasty, the taste is merely a bit more rustic. Tasted blind you would give it dark brown looks. I dig this, less complex perhaps than an average Lambic but I dig the more diverse tasted and foamy bubbles. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Dark brown coloured, medium to big sized brownish head, tart and slight roasty nose. Roasted malt, sour fruits, berries and notes of wood with touch of alcohol and tobacco. Slight acidic yeasty notes also. Tart and sour slight roasty finish. Could be better could be worse but still decent brew.

33 cl bottle (10%) @ Nietnigenough. Aroma has sourish berry juice and roastiness. Also some vinegar and hints of licorice. Flavour is rather tart with sour cherries, some woody notes, strong vinegar and red wine. Not my thing.
