In Norwegian tradition alcoholic beverages are sent across the globe to benefit from the temperature variations one experiences when crossing the equator. This beer was brewed at Bridge Road Brewers in Beechworth, Australia. Maturation took place in red wine barrels on its journey to Norway. Blending and packaging was carried out by Nøgne Ø.

Editor’s note: Brewed at Bridge Road, bottled at Nøgne Ø. Shipped to Norway in barrels previously used for red wine.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Had one fresh bottle, and it was really good. Had 2 bottles after 8ish months, and this is the story of these: Both gushers. Smell of sour berries, wet wood and red wine. Taste of vinegar, oak and sour red wine. Crazy carbonation.

My 40th birthday beer, happy birthday to me! It pours a very dark brown body with a huge, somewhat creamy, very long-lived, light-brown head that reduces to a fully lasting layer, good lacing. Strong, sour and funky aroma with notes of red wine. The taste is moderate sweet with hints of bitterness in the powerful and alcoholic finish, also an omnipresent light sourness. The flavours are strong but not extremely complex or interesting, mostly funky brett notes with sour red wine and some tart berries in the back. I hardly get any notes that remind me of a traditional quad at all, the funk and sour red wine is totally dominating. The body is full and the texture is oily, the carbonation is moderate. I was really looking forward to this one, but I must admit I’m a bit disappointed. A good beer, but nothing more.

Karol (670) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 23, 2013
Bottled. Many thanks to MisoW. Overall a damn sour beer. Sour in aroma, sour in taste. Reminds me a lot of a Belgian kriek with a lot of roasted malt or chocolate. Sour dark chocolate finish. Very drinkable and I like it.

Gurthnar (2365) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Aroma peachy soury brett. Spontaneous fruits. Tempting. Very dark brown colour. Taste has nicely balanced sour brett with peach/apricot and general fruitiness, both sour and sweet. Light chocolate and roasted flavours mid-way through. Light alcohol in the finish. Really good and enjoyable.
