asheft (2544) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2008
[bottle at plan b in Copenhagen] Sour and vinegary aroma with strawberry and cranberry and crabapple and horseblanket notes. Dark, unfiltered apple juice appearance with no head. Quite sour flavour, but not too vinegary and with plenty of fruity notes: peach, apple, dill pickle, slight horseblanket (I like). Very dry but tingly with medium carbonation, nice tart finish.

Clear amber beer, no head, little bit of small bubbles. Aroma: pretty metallic, orange peel, bit dusty, some cork, some bretta. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: very sharp lemony sourness cutting through mouth and bone, little sweet, fruity, some bretta, mainly just sour. Aftertaste: very sour, little bitter, moldy cork, spicy bitterness and some pepper. Held up pretty good against time.

1999 Vintage. Thanks to gypsy19 for this one! ~Moderate citric acidic sour scent with earthy tones, fruity citrus with apple and mild oak, light honey. ~Pours a very cloudy gold with no head. ~Sharp acidic tartness in the front that follows through. some apple and pear like qualities. Finish ends quickly. ~Light- med bodied. Puckering astringency. Dry finish. ~Enjoyable sour, but doesnt stand out like others that i have had.
