Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Hazy, murky red-orange-brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of cranberry and dirt. The flavor has some strong cranberry notes as well as some smoke, oak and dirt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well, ratings for this beer are very diverse, so I was curious how my taste buds would respond. 50 cl. bottle poured in to a flute. Hazy, dark amber with a golden hue. Small, off-white head. Fruity, tart aroma with red berries, citrus, leather, smoke, caramel and chocolate malts. Taste is light sour with the malts lurking behind. Medium body with an oily feel and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and tart with cranberries, wood and fruits - would probably work excellent with game as a food paring.
It´s messy, not complex - I still really like this beer even though the sweet, smoky flavors do not quite match the tangy and fruity impression. Truly a bastard as the label claims.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[@ Öl och whiskymässan, Malmö] Grumlig orange kropp. Väldigt fruktig och syrlig aroma. Smaken bjöd på en enorm syrlighet och tranbärssaft. Killen som hällde upp ölen förklarade att de bryggt en kraftig stout och sen blandat den med tranbärsjuice?!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, cool, tulip. Murky mahogany with a small tan head. Smoke, tangy fruitiness, some oak, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, toffee notes, a touch spicy, nice. Medium + body, soft effervescence. Smoke, fruits, brown sugar, light wood notes, fairly tangy, not great; off dry with gentle bitterness and a malty, tangy fruit finish. Not sure if it is infected or like this on purpose.

50 cl bottle.

Pours red color with a small off-white head. Aroma of fruits, juicy berries and grass. Flavor of hops, juice, hay and some berries and fruits. Weird, not as sweet as I expected though.
