COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a dark red, just the slightest head. Faint aroma of barrels. Medium body. Really broad, almost dull, which is a good thing, this beer is about the flavor, not the mouthfeel. Sour is subtle, with just the lightest hint of warming. Wow, finish is SO oaky and satisfying; can’t recall a beer in which the finish does so much for me.

Turtles (477) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear dark red-brown liquid with a very small head. Rustic and sour aroma, much oak, dark fruit, balsamic vinegar, and rust. The flavor complex, vinous and sour. There are several flavors to pick up, lemon, cherry, currant, oak and smoke. A balanced funky and complex flavor that is perfect to sip a long time.

axl (172) - Lund, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours brown to dark red-brown with tiny beige head fading quickly and leaving no traces. Aroma is deep, musky, earthy with some red berries, cherries and a light sourness to it. Taste is very sour and acidic with earthy notes as well as some vague hints of red berries and sour cherries. Mouthfeel is light but very sour/acidic and rather dry, carbonation is almost non existant.

Vignale (2536) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
Flaska från SB. Brunröd opak, inget skum. Lite starkare syrlig brunöl med medelstor laktosyra. Rund och mjuk i munnen, fuktigt träd, röda plommon med kärna men inte så bärig, mjuka tanniner, ganska torr trots en del sötma. En riktigt välgjord och god klassisk brunöl.

Svart. Skummlös. Luktar lite sur och mörka bär. Smakar som en suröl. Och surt och mörka bär.. Riktigt bra.

EtTuCthulhu (1375) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2015
The beer pours a slightly hazy brownish red with a large light tan rapidly fading head. The aroma blends red wine vinegar, oak, cherries, molasses, and caramel malts, and the taste is quite sour, mildly acidic, and a touch sweet with a slightly acidic aftertaste with a hint of tart cherries. The palate fuses a lively carbonation, oily texture, and a medium body.
