No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a murky and placid brown that looks very unappealing. The head is tall and velvety in texture, but is very thin in density which is apparent by how quickly it dissipates leaving no trace of a head after a minute.
Aroma: The aroma is restrained with hints of cherries, tartness, sweet cocoa, and a touch of caramel.
Taste: The sourness is moderate, but not very strong even for a beginner to sours like me. The sourness is similar to a stronger Shock Tart candy, with blue raspberry and cherry flavors. I taste a bit of cocoa lingering with the sourness.
Palate: Medium bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: I’m new to sours so I’m probably not judging this right, but I think this is a fair assessment of this since my score isn’t far off from the others.

Fair acidity and dark fruits. Light body with a touch of sweetness underneath cherry and mild acidity. Could use some funk.

Holmen1 (3632) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2013
Fra flaske en hyggelig lørdagskveld på Cardinal: "noko syrleg" og vel så det, men ikke av det ekstreme slaget. Bringebær og mye rips. For slank maltkropp til å bære syrligheten. Ingen bitterhet å spore i det hele tatt. Smaken kom seg når den ble litt lunken.

0,33 l shared bottle at Cardinal. Clear deep ruby colored body with a beige film. Ripe dark dried fruits and pickled cherried on the nose. Complex. In the mouth it fall through. Some fresh raspberries but it shuts down quickly. Not much more body to back up the acidity which is intense but short.

Sigmund (5796) - 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.
