(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu, 20130112) The beer poured reddish brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sourness, grapefruit, tartness and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, wood, sourness, tartness, sweetness, vineousness, malts and low bitterness. Aftertaste was woody, sour and mildly bitter. An interesting and good brew.

330ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours dark reddish with a small head. Aroma of tart fruits, sour notes, hints of berries and malts. Taste has notes of berries, hints of red wine, wood, slightly tart notes and sweet vanilla. Finish is smooth, mildly tart with some berries. Nice, surprisingly well balanced and tasty sour ale. Reminds me of Russian River Supplication.

Bottle. Pours a really dark amber/ruby red color with a beige head. Aroma is of brett, red wine, oak, spicy notes, red apple skin, balsamic vinegar notes, dark fruits, candied sugar and some musty old funk. The flavor follows the nose with lots of brett and funk again old cellar and barnyard along with lots of vinous red wine notes, oak, red apple skin, balsamic vinegar, suagry notes and spice. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a really nice vinous Wild Ale!
