KoNrRiI (1218) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A hazy, dirty amber color with virtually no head - though it is foaming like crazy when poured. An incredibly sour aroma, apples, wood, quite a lot of brett, a tad vinous, and perhaps a tiny bit of honey. A sweet and sour taste of brett, grapes, fermented fruits, some white wine, and a touch of wood. A medium body, a slick texture, and a fizzy carbonation. Finish is more heavily marked by wood and some leather, as well as by a tiny bit of alcohol - previously undetectable. Overall the beer is very pleasant, sour yes but with good reason and plenty of succulent flavors to back it up.

Hazy gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head, Palate is light, semi dry and fairly crisp. Nice level of citrus with mild and savoury brett. Modest woody bitterness in to a light grappa aniseed. Light semi dry finish. An interesting and drinkable beer.

330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn) (7:4:6+:4:14-=3.5)
Pleasant winey aroma first, then a lovely sourness - crisp. Sweet smooth palate, but pleasant carbonation. Pleasant sour taste, plenty of sweet white grape juice, and woody hint. 12% - no way!? Finish has pleasant woodiness, and more of the lovely grape juice. Interesting and characterful.

Marduk (6330) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 23, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear golden amber color. Tiny size, bubbly beige head, stays. Sour, acidic, fruity, yeasty, sweet in aroma. Sour, yeasty, apple seeds, herbal in taste. Acidic herbal aftertaste. Sharp acidic mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. Wouldn’t say it’s 12%. Not my thing.
