Draft. Dark ruby with little head. Vinous with touches of cherry, yogurt, oak and vinegar. Medium sticky mouthfeel and quite boozy. Very unique.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a snifter glass.
A: Pours a very dark brown almost black color forming no head. I’ve tried to put it let say, aggressively and then it formed some big bubbled brown head. Low retention and no lacings. BFM strong beers style
S: Sour and vinegar, slight sweet and very malty in the nose. Strong notes of caramel and roasted malts. A bit too fruity to the style. Light notes of alcohol
T: Slightly sweet and roasted malts upfront. Overall sour taste with a mild bitter hoppy end
M: Heavy and molasses body. Very low carbonation. Sour to bitter aftertaste
O: Good drinkability but, a difficult beer. Not a Bock beer for sure, not a Eisbock either. It’s far too sour and too bitter to the style. However, I would recommend it to sour and aggressive beer lovers. From my favorite Swiss brewery!
