Bottle from Ølbutikken.
clear red, small white head with a red hue. fresh black currant and black currant jam. also a faint beery note, but not much sour going on in the nose. Flavor is fruity sour, some fruity peely real citrussy notes that work very well, and makes it seem super fresh, the beer part of the flavor is quite bretty bitter, but not so dominant, flavor is definetly somewhat different than similar belgian brews, this being much less sour and tart.

Shared at RBSG 2014. Thanks Anders. Nose is amazingly fruity with some hay and barn. Taste is immediately puckering and a light rooty earthiness to it. Pour is crazy red. Very tastey with a chest thumping sourbess in the finish.
