From bottle. Poured redbrown with a large white head that quickly disappeared. Aromas of caramel, malts and yeast. High carbonation and a sour finish. An OK beer but not for everyone.

adnielsen (10089) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a hazy, deep maroon appearance with a bubbly brown head that doesn’t have much retention. Tangy acetic, dark berry, dark chocolate, oaky aroma. Sprizy, tangy, quite acetic, woody, light vanilla, big blackberry/raspberry, plum, fig flavor with bubbly carbonation and a moderate amount of acid on the finish. Not super smooth but not horrible either.

Foffern (1431) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
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.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2013
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.
