In a way a very straight up sour ale. The color is very beautiful and the taste is sourly refreshing.

This beer have a very sour taste. It is very fresh but i might be a bit too sour. I would have to get used to this taste to give higher grades.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 vintage, bottled Aug 14. $16 @ Binny’s. Off to Thanksgiving weekend with my family, most of whom won’t be drinking. So I’m "laying down a layer."
Oops! Opens with a gusher that won’t stop pumping foam out the top of the bottle. Once it finally calms down in my Goose Vintage stem glass, I have a cloudy caramel beer, a bit pinkish,with loose sediment, a loose foam on top. Has a definite red wine nose, with faint berry background subsumed by aromatic malt. Taste is quite tart. Lacks the creaminess of New Glarus Raspberry Tart. Another pour now shows a nice, fizzy champagne head. Starts to drink more like a champagne, thanks to, I assume, a secondary ferment. Tartness grows on me, with a little bit of fruit. May be a little shallow, but a decent American sour beer.

22oz bottle: pours a clear bright amber ruby with a small, stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet fruity nose with some vinous oak and tartness. Starts with light effervescence and a touch of berries with lots of puckering tartness, acetic acid and cabernet notes. Finishes crisp and sweet-tart with good vinous complexity. True to style and enjoyable.

Bottle from Ølbutikken.
A bit hazy orange with a minimal head. A very nice beer this one. Nicely sour with wood, berries, yeast, green apples and grapes. Dry mouthfeel. The finish was very tart. A very refreshing beer.

2010 bomber from a trade 2 years ago... Deep brilliant ruby red with a white head. Acidic, vinous nose with some band aid tartness. Nice oak levels with dark fruits, Cabernet notes and a pleasing level of acidity throughout ... The band aid notes are distracting and bring the beer down a few notches. Semi tart finish with lots of blackberries and more band aid.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 65 cl Bottle. Pours hazy pale red/amber with a small, pinky off-white head. Nose of brett and sour berries. Dry flavor with caramel, black berries, brett and spice + wood notes, that ends up quite tart. Light to medium bodied, watery texture and soft CO2. Quite smooth for a sour ale.Nice for my taste.★★★★

Bomber from Probus Wines, Dublin: 2012 Vintage. Pours deep rose with thin bubbly pinky/white head. Aroma is blackberry, leather, lemon juice, red fruits. Taste is incredible: great balance between the juicy sweetness of the berry notes and the lacto sourness. Plenty of tannin goodness to add to the full-on taste profile. Slight leathery, earthy barnyard funk comes through but nothing overbearing - the tartness compliments the berry/red wine notes perfectly. Such a long taste to this: wonderful evolution of flavours linger and develop on the tongue for a long while. Great almost lemony tart zing finishes it off. This would be a great intro to sours for someone, and a real treat for sour-heads; well worth the significant cost.

Light, crisp, refreshing. Perfect amount of tartness. Alcohol is so well hidden. I cant imagine this being any better.
