omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy pale amber, no head. More vinegar in the nose than I ever felt in sheer vinegar. Malt sweetness overrun by concentrated vinegar sourness. Completey dominated by aggressive puckering lemony acidity. Decidedy with some intersting oaky notes, but oh so unbalanced.
