4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This is impressive. A filthy dirty pour is the only off putting about it I would say. It really reminds me of Rodenbach Caractere. Very dark plum and sour cherry feel all round with plenty of acidity and earthiness. More sour on the nose than in the taste but that is not to say it isn’t sour because it really has a nice dose going on. Almost muscat like in it’s dark fruit juiciness. Bloody great

33cl bottle (bb: 2050!) at Crowbar, Oslo. Hazy reddish without much head to speak of. Fruity and slightly funky aroma with wooden notes, sour cherries, balsamic vinegar and hints of sour apples. Moderate sweet with a moderate acidity and nice fruity flavours. Some vinous notes. Interesting and quite delicious.

Hazy red/amber color, almost no head. Aroma is wine vinegar and sour cherries. Taste is very sour and tart. Level of this sourness burning in throat. Flavor is sour cherries, vinegar, oak with tart fruit aftertaste. When warmer is little bit sweet. Medium body, low carbonation. This beer is sick ;)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. Pours a murky red/brown with no head. Aroma is extremely sour and tart with cherries and marzipan. Taste is crazy sour as well. Cherries. Almost a burning tartness that brings sweat to your forehead. One of the most acidic beers i’ve ever had. Not much else to say. Little too much, even for me!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
from Erzbierschof - cloudy reddish-brown beer with a fast disappearing foam; a Rodenbach-like nose ! Sour cherries, vinegar, plums, notes of Amaretto and wood; full-bodied, solidly sourish, subtle and lively carbonation; very dry and sour finish, long cherryish notes with hints of prunes, Amaretto and berries - Jvar was right (of course): it’s a huge beer !

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of cherry and ... Funk...the appearance is a disaster, looks like dish water, or worse... Ouch
Luckily it tastes better, not very beer like.., not fresh as a creik, but in that direction, but heavy somehow. Sour, sweet, long finish.. Not bad but not great

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice red color with nearly no head from tap. Aroma is vinegar sour. Taste is very intensely sour. There is hints of cherry and a tiny bit of fruit. The sourness is dull but intense. Very light carbanation and an apple juicy thickness... just a bit thick but a bit watery too
