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.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
Batch #149, bottled 10/10/06, courtesy of Sara (not sure what her name is on RB). Dark brown with rich tan foam, very nice retention, especially for the style. Nose is very solventy, lots of nail polish remover, some cherry pie notes and a little oak also. Very tough to get by aroma, got better as it warmed, but sharp when it was first poured. Lots of oak on the flavor, some sharp acidity for a brief moment mid palate and finishes with some cherry pie and slight anise note. Very full bodied.

beer_est_deus (768) - örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2014
Dimmig, mörk brun med lite orange i sig och med mycket få bubblor ovanpå. Doft: Vinäger, trä, bränt socker, förmultsele. Smak: Vinäger, trä, jord, bränt socker, möglig frukt, deg, sur mjölk. Smakar bäst då man bara dricker utan att analysera.

bursprak (836) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy bronze with a tiny head that vanishes after a few seconds. Loads of acidic notes, balsamic vinegar, leather, oak, caramel and vanilla. Really tart and complex.

wihlan (342) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2014
Flaska från systemet - Mörk med vitt skum som försvinner direkt. Frisk arom, smaken är som en spontanjäst och mycket syrlig. Dessvärre smakar den bara surt.
