Rune (9367) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2015
Poured from a bottle at Haand Ølfestival 2015, shared with Finn. No head or lace. Dark reddish body. Tart smell of fruit and berries. Taste of sourish fruit in the direction of vinegar. Okay as a palate cleanser, otherwise really not for me (Drammen 30.05.2015).

Beer5000 (5064) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle @ Nydalen may 2014. Unclear dark brown body with practically no head. Aroma is rather intense sour with sour berries, vinegar and acetone. Flavor is very sour berries, vinegar, acid and a hint of chocolate. Medium body and acidic aftertaste. Close to something that might be great, but too rough at the vinegar in the end. Not really complex the way Rodenbach etc. makes sour ales.

Habanero (3278) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014
Bottled. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of brett, vinegar, beries and caramel notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Sour.
