sebletitje (7134) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2015
Bouteille 50cl, batch#693, BB 04/12/2015. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée, sur un léger trouble, col blanc champenois disparaissant vite. Arôme met de suite ne évidence le bouquet fruité de groseille, retrouve un rétro malté et un côté levure qui est un peu encombrant car trop prenant sur le fruité. Palais restitue correctement la groseille sans pour cela s’appuyer sur ce fruité qui tend à être suret. On garde une effervescence moyenne avec un côté herbacé et une pointe de mousse des bois ainsi que de baies. Seul bémol de cette bière reste son profil clairement axé sur un malt renforcé ponctué par une fin qui met pas mal de levure sur le devant.

ClubGonzo (4450) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle @ Det Akademiske Kvarter, Bergen. Pours a orange-hued clear amber body with a small white head. Nose is sour citric notes, red currants, bready yeast tones and hints of apples, hay and wine gum. Taste is wine gum, citric acid, hay and hints of apples, cellar yeasty tones, herbs and red currants. Medium body, high to fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent, but somewhat weird at the same time.

Beer4000 (4828) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2014
500 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Slightly unclear golden body with a small off-white head. Rather weak aroma of fruit or berries with a funky hint. Flavor is light acidic fruity and otherwise quite discrete in flavors. Not bad, but too plain and one-dimensional. Medium body and a bit short in aftertaste. Drinkable and quite refreshing, but I was expecting more distinctiveness flavors from this.

popery (1562) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Not good. The beer is orangey amber with a light red hue. Fizzy bubbles that fade quickly. No real buildup of head, just bubbles. The liquid is quite cloudy. The aroma is cherry cough drops, apricots and light sour beer. There’s a mild malt note. It’s mostly fruit. The apricot flavor is rather nice - kinda seems like brett fruitiness. More weird cough syrup flavor in the taste. Mildly tart. Odd acerbic yeasty dryness - maybe oak and yeast coming together. It really kills any fruit brightness. Lingering oaky, fruity bitterness. Thin mouthfeel. Prickly carbonation. Odd beer. There’s some promise in the fruitiness of the base, but the oak and fruit are too strong and kinda unpleasant.

Bottle 50 cl, Vinmonopolet. Nice smell and looks, and ok taste. Not too much fruit taste and sourness, which happens with some sours. The bubbles remind more of sparkling wine. Which is what I think this should probably rather be. I’d like to taste this as a redcurrent sparkling wine, not so much as a beer. Nevertheless, decent sour.
