330ml bottle, beer gift from Skinnyviking. Fawn-coloured head reduced to a bubbly surface. Dark apricot coloured body with sediments. Ripe tart fruity aroma. Fruity tartness to the taste character mixed with caramel malts, yeast and oak. Vinous,Fine bodied. Decent palate cleanser (shared with Finn at a session in Tromsø 11.02.2015).

Flaske 330ml. Gave fra Lars. Delt med Rune på Nerstranda 11 Feb 15. Mørk ravfarget. Lavt skum. Frisk syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken det samme. Holder seg uforandret men med et forsiktig rødvinspreg etter hvert. Mye sedimenter igjen i flaska.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Hazy copper colored, ok foam. High aroma intensity; funky, autumn leaves, cloudberries and good yeast influence along with some barrel influence. Medium body & complexity. High sourness, some bitterness. Very enjoyable

hopscotch (9891) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle... Pours mostly clear with a burnt-caramel hue and a small, off-white head. The aroma is a fusion of caramel and roasted malts with a slight splash of acetone. Full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is malty and tart, but also astringent – caramel, lactic acid, acetic acid and solvent. Abrasive, acetone finish. Something went wrong here. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand! Great trader. It ain’t his fault.

jesperhammer (3204) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2014
19-SEP-2014, bottle @home, from Kihoskh. Hazy borwn with low off-white head. Aroma is tart - already when oppening the bottle. Wood, , red wine, balsamico, brett, Coca Cola. Taste the same. Tart, medium body, soft carbonation. Quite full body for a sour actually. Touch of sweetness. Really well-made Flemmish Brown.

# 3474 ersma: ein gemeinschaftsprojekt der dänischen und amerikanischen brauerei. zehnmonatige fassreifung in brunello-fässern. das ganze ist mit brett-hefe vergoren. recht abgefahren. dunkelbraun mit rotstich, mäßige verschäumung. der geruch ist säuerlich mit eindeutlichen brettanomyces-noten. der antrunk ist säuerlich-fruchtig, viel zitrus und klare brett-aromen. im hintergrund leichte tannine, die zur mitte deutlicher werden und schön mit den brett-aromen harmonisieren. der abgang bleibt säuerlich, dazu gesellen sich süßliche noten der fassreifung. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: das ist sehr überzeugend. geschmacklich harmonisch, die brettanomyces-hefe ist deutlich aber nicht so penetrant wie in manch anderen bieren. unbedingt probierenswert. 9, 11, 11, 12, 11, 11 - 10,95

Bottle. Dark amber with small pale brown head. Aroma red wine, sour notes. Taste sour and fresh fruits. Finish dry, grapefruit and bitter. I´m not too fund of sour ales and don´t like grapefruits, so not a beer for me.

Bottle sample at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks tomer. Murky dark amber with a wavy beige head. Chocolate, some brine, tarty aroma. Nasty bitterness and sour at the same time, also some chocolate taste. Medium-bodied, a little sour, acidic finish.
