Bottle enjoyed at home
Red with brown tones, thin laced white head. Smells of wild berries, hints of green apple, some malts and also some funky brett. Taste is medium malty with a distinct sour acidity. Some sweetness also apply, but the sourness rules them all. Thin tart dry palate. Not very bitter finish, but i find som bittertones too. An interesting beer from HB, needs maybe some more time in the cellar

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2011
"Premiere" bottle, shared with fellow Ratebeerians @ Haandbryggeriet, Drammen, courtesy of the brewery and OleR; cheers man! :-) Pours a dark brown-orange body with a small white head. Nose is brett, sour berry tones, hints of straw and some malty notes in the back. Taste is heather, dry tones of crowberry, brett and tart apples. Nice, but it still seems a bit young and I suspect it will grown in the bottle and bloom for real in about a year or so.
