_angst_ (4289) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Karl. Pours tiny hazy reddish deep brown with a very small pale reddish beige head that doesnät leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, fruity, tiny earthy and tiny funky with dark bread, caramel, lemon juice, raspberries, currants, dark grapes, dried cherries, moist hay, moist soil, leather, barnyard, balsamic, orange zest and lemon zest. Taste is slightly sweet, sour, malty and fruity. Mouthfeel is soft, round, slightly dry, tiny oily, tart, tiny mouth-puckering and medium bodied. Finish is sour with heavy tartness and mouth-puckering red berries. Bit too sour and a tiny bit too heavy on the vinegar but the malts provide balance and this is quite good.
