First rating: Medium beige head. Hazy reddish amber body. Vinous fruity wooden aroma with vinegar notes. Dry-sweet, and slightly acidic, dirty earthy taste with vinous fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-sweet rhubarb, wood, and barnyard aftertaste with sugary notes. Nice. Well balanced and harmonic. (0.33l bottle shared by Ole_R.) 6,4,7,3,13=3.3

Second rating: Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body with light carbonation. Earthy funky wild berries and fruit aroma with spicy notes. Acidic earthy funky fruit taste with wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Sharp, almost burning mouthfeel. Dry-acidic wooden vinuous salty funky aftertaste with earthy notes. It’s interesting, and in some ways very good, in other ways not good at all.

yngwie (16530) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle. A glowing brown beer, clear, topped by a small, dark beige head. The aroma has dark dried fruits and vinegar, some notes of spices too. Vanilla. Dry, soft on the palate, medium body. Vinegar hints, fruityness, some dried fruits and vanilla hints in the flavor. Lasting finish with fresh and dried fruits and some vinegar. A pleasant one, that’s for sure, but I think it lacks a bit on complexity. 130309
