Draft @ BBF’12
One of the festivals surprises! Hazy brown, red glow, off-white head. Very nice combination of a sour ale, with wood, red wine, bourbon hints. Medium dry and a very decent body for 6,9%

On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours dark ruby with a fine, bubbly head. Big dank fruit nose. Big sour flavor - lip-quivering, in fact - with plenty of cherries and what have you. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Tangy fruit finish with some leather, tart berries, light dryness. Very nice stuff.

50cl bottle. It pours a mostly clear copper colour with a few white bubbles. Aroma is vinous with some red fruits and vinegar. Acidic and vinous taste with lots of dried fruits and slight alcohol. Thin mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Definitely good effort.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark red wine colored, small head that vanish really fast. Smells of plums, grape, oak, red wine, caramel and malts. Also traces of mild funk. Taste is moderate sweet, quite fruity, medium sour, some wine and fruits in there, you really can tell this has been on a barrell for some time. The sourness from the clean undressed has been quite tamed here. I really like it. The undressed suits BA quite well. Nice one from Alvinne.
