Bottled, from Systembolaget. Murky copper/amber, faint head. Acetic oaky cherry aroma. Acetic with underlying malt sweetness. Full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Oak, cherries, honey, vinegar and white pepper. Warming acetic finish. Intense and concentrated, multi layered and quite delicious.

@Basunen: riktigt trevlig doft av syrliga körsbär. Smaken är likadan. Mycket trevlig frukt och god syrlighet. Fin balans. Gott gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

MarcoDL (1975) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Sour ale indeed. The taste of cherries and wine aging is nice, but the sourness destroys anything in its way, too much and unbalanced.

beer_est_deus (575) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
Oklar brun + lite orange med ett extremt litet skum. Doft: Körsbärs likör, färska bigarråer, fat, cognac, våt jord,,alkohol, syrlig brett, gräddkola, lite rengöringsmedel. Smak: Jord, fat, körsbärs likör, malt, alkohol, brett, jordgubbs fil, ljung, söt vinäger. Hade önskat mindre kärn och mer färsk frukt i doft och smak. Lite risifrutti körsbär i eftersmaken. En öl som definitivt växer medans man dricker.

Wonderful aroma, wonderful taste and a godly red fruits after taste that remain in your mouth for hours, gold if you like very sour beers

Timvim (44) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140516 Really muddy reddish brown. No head, sparse carbonation. Aroma of cherry, some bretty tones, a little acid, prunes. Taste: Cherry, oak, light sourness that is quite sharp at the back of the tongue. Soft mouthfeel, some residual sweetness. Interesting, but not very drinkable. Not worth 75 SEK. Perhaps the most ugly beer I have seen.

Stizz19 (58) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Had this at the Freakin frog in las vegas (best experience at a bar i've ever had). At $52/bottle it was not cheap. Pours a murky red color with a brownish/white head. Smells like sour cherries and other tart fruits. The taste is exquisite, nice tart cherry taste with some bitterness at the end. The best sour lambic style beer I've ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
