4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark brown color with a medium brown head. Aroma is quite tart (but not "sour"), oaky and fruity. Flavor is large and malty across the center of the tongue, with dark cherries, plums and quite tart along the edges, causing an interesting tongue-curl as I sip. Finish shows a bit of wood, alcohol, caramel and the fruits make a small reappearance, while the tartness continues to dry it all back out. Yum!!

Bottle from Madla Monopol. Pours flat, reddish dirty cola color. Aroma of smoked malt, sourness, ripe apple and alcoholic. Taste is smoky, sour, winous maybe some redwine? oak. Feels like a funky barreled Norwegian Wood. Not my favorite sour but i love the attempt to make a traditional sour Norwegian like it was before pasteurs time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to stemmed sour glass. Looks good; a slightly translucent mahogany with off-white lacing. Smells solid; acetic with notes of oak and cherry. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. The carbonation is softer than I’d prefer, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless.
