oh6gdx (22068) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottled@Tuulensuu (old backlog). Reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is sour wood, some caramel, mild fruits, yeast, a bit spices as well as some slight berries as well. Flavour is sour and tart wood, with some mild malty sweetness as well as some yeast, cherries and mild spiced notes to it. Wellbalanced, and quite mouthdrying palate.

Thanks to grownfool for this one. Brown, murky, with a ring of foam. Smells really winey, plus some oaky notes. Taste is also pretty winey, plus some subtle fruity notes. Very tasty.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

EithCubes (5205) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Stubby bottle, 11.2 oz, from what looks to be LOT 580, JUL 2017. So very young. Nose is very sharply sour out of the bottle, strong in acetic (more cherrylike Balsamic), lesser fruit with a touch of candy, lots of yeast movement without gushing. Poured that beautiful red-brown mix I was hoping for, head is soapy tan/light brown (black in-glass) with some mild painter’s red mixed in. Taste sharply sour with tons of wood and even a little light toast, has some funk notes and immediately engages the salivary glands. Less cherry than expected and more dry, roasty brown malt, especially in the finish. Very dry/attenuated. Some light funk that reminds me of something unknowable from my childhood, and significantly dirty, above-avg metallic character to match softer lactic. That intense woody-dirty character is fascinating, especially in the aftertaste, a little dusty with fallen leaves in the autumn, not really like anything else I’ve ever had, but then again, not something I’ll be craving anytime soon. Medium body with light bitterness, up to medium by the end, and surprising in the complete absence of hops. Very little sign of alcohol, but there are some smoky phenols that barely mesh. Chewing on an unvarnished old wooden windowsill, plus singed pretzel, awesome!
