3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish brown. There is massive fizzy head sitting on top of the brew. Lots of funky farmhouse smells to it with some apple cider and sour cherry scents too. The first sip is a rush of funkiness. You are hit with a splash of tart cherries. grape leaves and effervescence along with loads of funkiness. A creamy vanilla tone underlies it all. Bubbly on the palate. Very light. On the dry side, except for an apple peel finish that lingers on. A nice brew. Refreshing and great to sip on a quiet afternoon.

Poured from bottle. Beautiful pour with two fingers of caramel head. Lovely horse blanket and sweet aroma. Great sour combines with caramel finish on the first taste. Lovely small bubbles to finish the swallow. A very complex beer that requires many swallows to appreciate.

Karl bjuder på bishop Falun. Dyr vill jag minnas men inte säker. Kola och ättika i doft. Väldigt fluffig i kroppen men spretar mot slutet. Ganska lik en Rodenbach. Kul att gamla gänget är samlat. Trevlig kväll

Bottle, approximately 3 years old, shared thanks to Tim and Rachel! Gusher, pours a murky brown with ring of tan bubbly head and light lacing. Aroma funky sour fruits, lactic esters. Taste is woah, sour out of the gate, then a hint of chocolate before it goes to acetyl, then back to sour and dark fruits. This is pretty darn good, bubbly and effervescent but still substantial.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with drowland et al at Kickbacks. Slow gusher! It pours cloudy deep red-brown with a thick beige head. The nose is dank wood, tanginess, red grape, red wine vinegar, candy, mustiness, mould and leather. The taste is earthy, vinous, red grape, tangy cherry, bitter-sweet aspect, red wine vinegar, leather and wet leaf. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a bit too much vinegar aspect, but a solid tangy sour ale nonetheless.
