3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A hazy light-brown with no head. The bubbles are poppy like champagne, the aroma is fruity and tart. The beginning of the flavor is on the tip of the tongue and the back of the palate. It is tart but not bitter and the flavor is fruity but not sweet. Its a fun beer with flavors that you can’t get everywhere. Enjoy.

50cl bottle from Bieropholie, served cold (initially) in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear amber with a very thin white head.

Palate: Medium body, prickly, fine effervescence.
Flav.: A bit more spicy/peppery than the nose, a bit less funk, tart fruitiness, bitter herbs, oaky, light tobacco/ash notes, complex; dry, mildly tart and fairly bitter with a long, funky finish.
Dang, Megge. I think I like you.

Taste : Acidic and fruity with oak tannins and cherries. Finish tannic, acidic with light vinegar. Fairly acidic. Some fruits, grapes and cherries.
Palate : Very soft borderline flat.
Overall : Not a bad sour ale. Fairly acidic and sour, nice punch. A bit straight forward. Could use a bit more carbonation. A bit too acidic and vinegary for my taste. Not bad per say but not great.
