4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A thick and very nice sour ale. Orange marmelade, Gooseberries, White Wine and dry oak/re wine in the aftertaste. A little sweetness mixes well with the sourness. This is a personal favourite of mine from Haandbryggeriet. Only beaten slightly by Handbryggeriet Surpomp. Has similarities with Beer Here Whining Blonde, which also is a great beer. Recommended.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Birra complessa e intrigante, di colore ambrato. Con uno carattere acido che avvolge la bocca e accompagna note fruttate e citriche, molto decise queste ultime, addolcite da una sfumatura rustica e legnosa. L’acidità è davvero piacevole, ammorbidita dall’invecchiamento ma intensa al punto giusto. Buonissima!
