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.

Flaska systemet - mörk som natten och doftar mycket angenämt. Fruktiga aromer som påminner om en lambic. Smaken var däremot ganska otrevlig. Brända toner med syrlighet som, ja, en lambic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (4245) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle bought at Vinmonopolet in Norway. A barrel-aged Quad that aged on the voyage from Norway to Australia where it was bottled. Drunk from a half-pint glass. Deep dark ruby brown pour with a thick beige head. Musty, red wine, earthy barrel character nose. A good sour, earthy tart, sherry flavor with oak & barrel. Delicious stuff.

BBB63 (6526) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Nip bottle, thanks Eric: Murky brown with a huge head showing some wild yeast presence. Dark fruits meets acidic red wine. Tannic and oak with some toast and earthy tones. Light funky notes popped up.

JohnRMurdoch (4229) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2014
250ml bottle courtesy of Rune. Almost black, reasonable head. Earthy yeasty flavour. Bg strong syrupy alcohol flavour. Sweet alcohol aftertaste. Not my sort of beer.

mcberko (12998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
250mL bottle, explodes upon opening, lost maybe 1/4 of the already tiny and stupidly expensive bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with a monstrous tan head. Nose brings out the dry tart red wine barrel tannins upfront, followed by Belgian yeast and subtle dark fruit. Flavour is rather exquisite, showing no sign of infection, revealing notes of dry red wine oak tannins, followed by dry dark fruits and Belgian yeast. Finishes dry, vinous and oaky. Excellent stuff, just not worth the exorbitant price.

ramboraffe (1757) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
250 ml bottle. Dark brown with tanned head. Smell is sweet fruity and berries. Taste is fruity, heavy malty body vinous and some alcohol.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dirty dark brown with a tan head which lasts for the entire duration of the beer. Nose is full if vibrant ripe berries and oak with mild earthiness. Absolutely massive raspberry and blackberry on the aroma. Taste is very red wine forward with ripe berries, mild vanilla, huge toffee and citric tang in front of a vinous feel and melted toffee base. Very unique. Very good!

Tasted side by side with its brother the Aurora Borealis 2 and some nice blue cheese. Deep reddish brown with tan head that lasted well. Dried plums, spice and cinnamon. Warming and luxurious mouth feel. Very enjoyable and contrasting to the Borealis which is aged in cognac casks.
