phaleslu (7041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
500 ml bottle from Randall’s. Pours a clear, rich, reddish-amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of crowberries (I get lots of berries- that’s what the label calls them), cherries, herbs, sweet malts, and plenty of juicy funk. The flavor has the same big berry character, with apples, caramel malts, lemon, and grass. Very clean. Light-bodied, with a juicy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dry finish. Nice berry-based sour.

Flaske 0,5 l som Rune og undertegnede fikk som gave fra OleR. Tusen takk! Delt med Rune under ratesammenkomst hos ham 21 Jun 12. Brun på farge. Lavt, svakt farget skum. Aromaen er svakt syrlig. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Behagelig syrlig ettersmak med en tørr avslutning.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Appearance - Clean bronze, messy lacing
Aroma - Blackberries, vinegar, wet grass
Taste - Bitter cherries, lemongrass, tart

This was a very light drinker - most sours are a lot more intense than this one. Still a good drink... I just wished it was with cranberries (I read wrong).

OmegaX (1301) - Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2012
I was glad to get to try this. Thanks Chipalsa. Bottle pour. Body is plain brown with a miniscule head of big clear bubbles. Aroma is of tart berries, some acidic notes, and a touch of funkiness. Taste was pleasing. I got tons of berry/strawberry notes, a touch of tartness, and some tannic qualities. The aftertaste was surprisingly fruity (berries and bananas). Overall I enjoyed this one because the tartness is reserved compared to some of the other sours I’ve had.
