yngwie (15376) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, amber colored beer with a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma is rather malty, with cellar, dried fruits, some ripe apples, prunes and raisins. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a nice but high level of carbonation. Dried fruits, some sweetness and a sourish touch in the flavor, some grains and ripe apples too. Long finish on the fruity side. Sure a decent one, but too grainy and sweet for me. 150724

Sour aroma bit caramel. Ruby red colour thick foam. Easy drinkable. Strange but I feel some champagne in it.

radio_nowhere (1143) - Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft sample at Ale Mary’s in Scranton, PA; hazy darker brown color with light tan head. Aroma notes of berries, some vinegar, lightly vineous and faint caramel sweetness. Taste adds more sour cherries and light roasted malt. Light-medium body, moderate-low carbonation, sticky with fast tart roast finish. More an easy drinking brown sour, pretty nice.

Sweet and dark. Rich and rewarding enough to incite more than the 5% abv. A repeater, but not on the night.
