Yark! Amber coloured and faint hazy. Has a white head. Odd aroma, lightly smoked? Bad-bad flavor, like old rotten smoked wood.

Doft & smak är sur & rökig whisky(laphroaig någon??), hö & gammal Bond gård. Väldigt intressant. Antingen hatar man den eller så älskar man den. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Huh, I read about all these gushers and manic corks... But nothing like that with this bottle. Just a silent plop... Seems like a dead beer while the glass is filled with this headless clear amber copper colored liquid. I couldnít imagine anything with this beer being rated so bad. The flavour isnít that good or bad, but for a sour ale quite interesting: bandage, iodine, peat, wood, some wild yeast, malts, cookies and sweat. Than the bad news come, the flavour is unbearable and fucking unbalanced which results in a disgusting beer! Rotten malts, sweat, rotten wine, rotten wood, hint of wild yeast, some vinegar warmth, freaky cookies and you can surely say bad funk! Yek! Aftertaste is vinous with nasty malts, warmth, sweat... Etc etc... No carbonation, watery mouthfeel, unbalanced body. 3 points or the label which they used with the other beers that are waiting to be tasted as well. I am quite done with this brewery, what a guts to sell so much rubbish! DRAINPOUR SUPREME!

Good thing I had read the reviews before opening this bastard. Before I was half done unwinding the metal part of the cap, the metal cap and cork simply took off for the moon. I might have killed a squirrel. Color is nice, head is gone almost immediately. It is absolutely insanely carbonated. I actually quite like the smell. It is very funky but in a warm way. It reminds me of the smell of working with leather. Yeast comes through in slight floral notes. It also reminds me of the smell inside the box holding my brothers accordion. Also some new shoe smell. From smelling and looking at this beer, you might feel tempted to taste it. Please donít. The taste is horribly phenolic with a medicinal aftertaste combined with smoke and wood. It just does not work. Sorry, I canít finish this one. But it was a nice experience. If you read this before opening your own: BE CAUTIOUS WHEN OPENING. SERIOUSLY.

Bottle. Cloudy golden body, no head. Aroma is...special. smoked peat and barnyard, cardboard. Taste is unbalanced, sweet peat with a strong vinegarish sourness. Herbs and spices, without helping much. The finish is better, sour with mild berry notes, though the unpleasant taste is sadly what Iíll remember this beer for.
