Bottle. Pour darkish red with minimal head. A beautiful sour aroma with dominated with the aroma of tart cherries. Nice sour/tart taste though it seems to be missing something. Deffinelty would not guess this is a 11% ABV. Overall the beer is enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark reddish colour, slightly hazy. Pours with almost no head, and the little foam there is disappears very quickly.
Very nice sweet and sour aroma of wood, dried fruits, cherries and a light balsamic note.
On the palate it is less sour than I expected and could use some more carbonation. The alcohol is virtually nondetectable, which is quite an achievement. Very nice sour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (Pikkulintu, BB 01/2019).
Dark murky red color, small beige head. Sour nose, evident cherry aroma, also some earthy notes. Lactose, wild yeast, puckering cherry fruityness. Aftertaste is not very long (sour). Doesn’t feel like 11%. Very good lambic imitation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottles from Andersand and HomerSlottved, thanks guys! Murky brick red pour with not much head to speak of. A lot of particulate, dead looking yeast and proteins. Kind of celery sour aroma with a faint, stale doughiness. The sour is there but there is something wrong with it. The flavor starts out vinegary and rodenbach-like, but transitions into a very chewy, malty mid-body with a bit of a sloppy, orange peel & dirt finish. 11% is a bit big for a sour ale, this beer really seems to be at odds with itself, with the sour cultures and yeast fighting for control over a massive gravity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown-yellow colored with hazy appearance. Little vanishing yellow head. Sour aroma with mild cherries, some chocolate and acidic notes. Acidic medium bodied palate with nice sourness. Flavor is drier with cherries in start, aftertaste has slight alcohol with sour touch.
