COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Det här var gott och kraftfullt, smaken bar toner av belgisk jästkultur, syra och malt. Det stod på flaskan att den lagrats på rödvinsfat och det märks väldigt tydligt.

Staffan47 (809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2013
Brunsvart. Frisk, syrlig balsamico. Ingen humle. Viss marsipan och bittermandel. Smaken domineras av kola. Frisk och syrlig även i smak. Viss komplexitet men även astringent som både stör och är härlig. Eftersmaken är svagt bitter.

Sort med et lite brunskjær. Mye skum som danner seg allerede i flasken, på torss av at denne egentlig er alt for kald når jeg henter den frem. Skummet blir liggende lenge og minner egetlig litt om eggedosis med litt sjokolade for å gi brunfarge. En syrlig duft er påtrengende helt fra flasken blir åpnet. Den minner sterkt om duften fra surøl, med halvmodne stikkelsbær, vått tre og vårfriske blader. Under dette ligger et hint om at mer fruktighet og fylde. Straks ølet treffer ganen er det en annen dans. Her er det mye smak og mange smaker, som leker på tungen. Her er eik, kirsebær, modne stikkelsbær, solbær, fiken, dadler det hele med et lett vinaktig preg og etter hvert går det mer mot syrligheten i nykappede kister. Ettersmaken følger i det samme sporet. En lett tørr fruktig, men lang og behagelig etterdønning av hovedsmaken.

Sparf (101) - Östersund, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2013
Tydliga ektoner tonar fram ur en hög, starkt vinös arom. En touch av jordgubbe och karamell och torkad frukt. Jästtonerna påminner även om spontanjäst belgare. Färgen är riktigt mörkbrun och med ett utmärkt skum. Även smaken är vinös med druvor och en markerad sötma baserad i jästtoner och fat. Halvfyllig kropp med dämpad champgnekolsyra. Avslutning och eftersmak är märkligt torr, obalanserad mot en viss surhet med källartoner.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Ar: lots of red wine, grapes, funky yeastiness, tartness, cherries, alcohol, butterscotch, unlike any quad I’ve had, but I like it. Ap: ruby/Brown colour, medium tan head, lacing. T: low bitterness, medium tartness, distinct sweetness, malty, lots of red wine, woody, complex as can be, the aftertaste is extremely layered and complex. P: fullbodied, soft carbonation, warming finish. O: quietly wonderful.
