Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours brown with ruby highlights and a small, fizzy off-white head, spare retention and lacing. Aroma is sour and acetic plums and cherries with light date notes, cookie and caramel malt with light earthy and spicy hops.

Sigmund (5179) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger, who got this beer by a mistake from the importer. ABV is 6.9%. Dark brown to ruby colour, pours with a low and fizzy beige head that dies out instantly. Sweet & sour aroma, notes of red wine, red wine vinegar, oak and herbs. The flavour is very sour, vinegary and oaky, medium sweet. No bitterness. Interesting to have sampled a real oud bruin, but this is really not my cup of tea at all. Could not finish the bottle.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, mahogany colour with a beige mid-sized foamy head. Vinegary and woody aroma with fruity notes of red berries and morello cherries, accompanied by mildly toasted malt and a tinge of cacao. Moderately sour flavour, medium to light bodied with a smooth carbonation. Dark malt-character upfront with notes of caramel, dark chocolate, combined with pronounced acidic fruity flavours; dry and vinegary finish with notes of toasted malt and berry fruits. Enjoyable Sour Ale. 11.I.13

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a rapidly disappearing tan head and a delicious sour vanilla and plum aroma. There is a sour dark and red fruit flavor with a vinegar finish. Typical Alvinne, although the bottle did not overflow when opened.

esp0r (2007) - NORWAY - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown with a small head that falls down to nothing really fast. Smells of roasted malts, liquorice, some funk and caramel. Moderate sweet, then heavy sour, some dark fruits, cherries, but mostly a wall of sour. This ends up a bit one dimentional maybe; feels a bit like it’s unfinished and needs some barrell aging.
