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.

(500ml bottle) Pours a thick chewy murky reddish brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of sour cherry, cocoa, vanilla, and caramel. Flavor of caramel malt, cherry, barrel, toffee, port, brown sugar, and chocolate with a dry finish. Very nice! Looking forward to trying another bottle of this unique sour.

Draft @ Mikkeller Bar SF on 1/19/15. Pours a red, brown color with minimal head. Aroma is acidic, red grapes, malt, and brett. Medium to thin bodied. Taste is vinegar-like acidity with tones of cherry, grape and funk with a bitter finish. Decent flanders red.

beer_est_deus (769) - 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.

MrHult (350) - SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget. Mörkt rödbrun med låg skumkant runt glaset. Sötsur doft av körsbär. SUR! Åt kriek hållet, sur med låg sötma. Liten maltighet med beska i eftersmaken.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av karamell, vinäger, brunt socker, körsbär, röda bär, trä med toner av mjölkbakterier. Lagom sötma, fin syrlighet och fruktighet. Gott!
