Sampled via bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Tried this on the advice of JK - great call! Golden pour. Funky barnyard, leather, some tart citrus. One of the highlights of the day for me.

Nische (774) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2014
Very hazy pink and ruby pour with almost no head. Tart berries but not overly sour. Flavor is rich with different berries, and cherry tones.

Blindprovad. Den här skulle jag nog ha svårt att skilja från en 3F Golden blend. Bra betyg naturligtvis. Spannmål och funk så det står härliga till. Viss kämpig beska som hänger i.

Nocturne (843) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
750ml bottle. After a painful uncorking it pours out a reddish amber. Little to no head. Smells really leathery at first. Blackberry stands out quite prominently. Kind of medicinal influence to the aroma. Big cherry taste at first with prickly berry fruit providing a great follow-up. Hint of sticking plaster. Great sourness. Really nice combination at work here.

Bottle sample at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks DSG. Orange colour with floaties. Sweaty armpits aroma, bile sourness in the mouth. No carbonation yet gassy, medium-bodied.

Bottle bought @ Etré Gourmet. Pours vibrant pinkish red with a thin pinkish white head that doesn’t leave any trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell Is slightly sour, fruity and tiny funky with wheat crackers, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, sour cherries, gooseberries, leather, dry soil, hay, moist wood and apricots. Taste is heavy sour, fruity and tiny funky with wheat crackers, sour cherries, gooseberries, unripe strawberries, blackberries, hay, dry soil, horse blanket, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, lemon zest and horse blanket. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, heavy mouth-puckering, flat and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour and fruity with wheat crackers, lemon juice, gooseberries, sour cherries, hay, dry soil, horse blanket and lemon zest. Bottle must have leaked since this was basically without carbonation. A pity... I look forward to trying it again.
