Tap @ Pikkulintu. Poured ruby, amber with a thin head. Nice looking. Aroma has barnyard, light rhubarb, tart and woody notes. In the flavor you really notice the rhubarb, very tart, mouthdrying, funky and apple notes. fresh rhubarb in finish. glad I got to try this unique beer.

This is that beer. The one you’ve had before and every time you have it you have no idea what to expect. It can be anything in between mind blowing and "good." lots of bottle variation here, but I’ve found that the labeled bottles taste better than the unlabeled ones. Not sure why that is, but the horse blanket is strong with this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big funk, barnyard, hay, woody, with a big refreshing rhubarb spark to it, a bit citrus reminiscent with heavy damp flavors, very interesting aroma. Taste is one of the more sour cantillons, with a nice evened out rhubarb flavor that is spot on, and ends with a drying funk note. This is great.
