At Borefts 2016. Aroma of tart, sourness and wheat. Taste is really sour, with oak, citrus and then some more sourness. Effective, but somewhat simple.

Thank you for sharing BE RB Crew! Sampled draft @ Borefts 2016. Day 1. Hazy orange peach, little white head. Nose is weird soapy sour, nose is bit muted, lightly dull. Taste is mildly dull upfront, some malt, puckering bit too soapy, vinegar, dull cereal. Finnish is acidic, puckering, vinegar, body is the same. Lesser Cascade for sure but still good.

24.09.2016, tap (2015 vintage) @ Borefts:
Tiny bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish grainy, soda powder, unripe berries, grain, minerals, oak, grass, hints of popcorn. Taste is slightly sweet sour-ish grassy, weeds, minerals, oak, grain, sour fruits, fruit stones, grass, hay, unripe berries, bark, mild vinegar. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Fair enough, too fresh I guess.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. 2011 vintage. The pour is a dark orange cold with a thinner white ring of head and a cores spots of lace. The aroma is good. There is a light sourness and a great citrus peel. The flavor is similar. There is a slightly awkward acidic sweetness on the flavor. Itís decent, but light. There is a good bit of oakiness and a light sweet light fruit. The sourness is light and balanced. The mouth feel is a little syrupy with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly sweet fruit. Itís sweet and lightly sour. Not too shabby. Itís very plain though.
