A pugilistic dark-bodied farmhouse-style ale.

rarbring (1532) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2013
Aroma: Smelling of disinfectant (acetic acid, ethanol, ethyl acetate) and red vinegar.
Appearance: A hazy brown beer, an off-white head leaving little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Some upfront pure sugar sweetness, then the acetic acid and some alcohol.
Palate: Little carbonation, soft with small bubbles, a light dry finish.
Overall: When I read the above it sounds much worse than it is, sour chemical nuances, but not really bad.
Note: Bottle at De Klomp. Reviewed 2011-10-30.

Picked this up for takewaway at Rattle n’ Hum in NYC in July ’12. Enjoyed in a wine glass at 55F

A - Poured a very dark amber, appears to be unfiltered and huge head even on a careful pour. Head was white with hints of brown

S - Cherries and Oak with vinegar. Smells like a flanders red

T - Big vinegar bomb, lots of oak and cherries and a hint of peaches. Has a stale..(oxidized?) cardboard taste at the finish.

M - Medium carbonation, medium body

O - I think this beer is past prime. too much cardboard and moldy oak taste.

750mL bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours a deep dark amber with a voluminous beige head. Aroma of sour dark fruits, light vinegar, sort of a red wine quality – really complex. Flavour is very complex, with notes of soured dark fruits, a bit of a vinous quality, light vinegar and low acidity. Very complex and intensely carbonated – too carbonated I’d say to bring out the true complexity of this beer. Very enjoyable stuff, not too far off from Duchesse de Bourgogne, but way overcarbonated. Great stuff.

750ml bottle. Poured an amber/brown color with a huge sized off white head. Fruity, vinegar, some funkiness, and some caramel.

Opaque dark brown beer, tiny pale tan head, short lived. Mildly sour nose. Crispy palate. Dark malts in the background play to a kind of Flemish style of sourness. Like Duchesse Du Bourgogne but toned down slightly and all the better for it. Smooth fruits and a touch of vinegar. Smooth finish.

thanks Gnosis for the nice extra!! bottle poured into a paper solo cup (lol) in my company lunch room....dark brown with a HUGE tan pillow like head. This one was a gusher, wow, didnt expect to see volcanic action. smell was sour, and so was the taste. It had a nice funk with some vinegar notes. slight maltiness, but vinegar was prominent

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2012
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one has a massive massive fluffy bubbly head on top of a near murky dark plum-red body. The aroma is light tart-sour with clear vinegar and wood. Some near chocolate thing blended with lingonberries and sweet red berries. Really nice! The flavor has cherries, red currants, blueberries, vinegar, sour gooseberries, dry lingonberies and red wine vinegar. What a specimen! Really tasty! 27.07.2012

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Thanks to BeerBaby for this one! Pours clear very dark brown with garnet highlights. Very foamy tall, long-lasting off-white head. Tart, sour aroma. Balsamic vinaigrette and spoiled apples. The flavor is sour and acetic. I don’t care for the way the sourness finishes on the tongue. This needs a bit more malt sweetness to balance it out for my tastes.

Pours cloudy deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, vinegar, acetone, caramel and fruits. Taste is light to medium sweet and meidum sour with a long sour, acetone, fruity and dry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.
