3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark nut brown colour with a small khaki head. Pretty carbonated. Aromas of sour berries, red currant, leather, heather and forest floor. Sour flavour of bitter berries, goose berries, plums and apple cider vinegar. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a heavy berry bitterness. A very sour ale, but is balanced in a way. I feel I need some food to tame this beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl Bottle at home. Brown coloured beer with quite some carbonation and a medium but fast diminishing brown head. No head left after few seconds. Enjoyable refreshing sour sweet balanced slight wooden noted aroma. Medium to full almost dense palate. Finish is special, starts out slightly sour fruity but develops into a more tart sour ending, rather dry slightly woody. Atypical brew.
