Bottle. Pours a clear light red with little head and aromas that remind me of cranberry juice with added tartness. Flavor is... well... I guess interesting is a good way of putting it. It is acidic, but less sour than I expected. The finish is bandaid tasting and a little medicinal. I was hoping for better on this one.

Hazy orange-red-brown body. Minimal head. Currants, grapes, vinegar, cherry-like fruits, and a potent acidity. Medium bodied. Aggressive sourness. Relatively complex and enjoyable.

500ml botle. Some sour and sweet aromas. Almost no carbonation . Pours dark cloudy red. Taste is moderate sour, really dry and earthy, very astrigent but in a different sense rather than other sour ales. Did not enjoy this one so much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(sample at Papsø’s; courtesy of OleR) Pours a clear amber with little, white head. Aroma is slightly apple tart with a hint of malt. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body with a sour finish. Taste is apple cider, crisp tartness. Pleasant even if it’s not my style and I fail to taste the fruit.
