Danish: Nu er du advaret! Det er en sur øl – og sur med vilje! Tæt på de vildgærede øltyper. Vi har podet den med lactobacillus – også kaldet mælkesyrebakterier. Det er de samme bakterier, som findes i yogurt og tykmælk. Udover lactobacillus, er den podet med brettanomyces. Det giver den lidt “brett-karakter” som nogle vælger at kalde det. Øllet er blandet med øl som har ligget på fad i 12 måneder.
Indeholder: Bygmalt, humle, gær og vand.

Dark red-amber beer under a small yellow head. Fruity nose with prominent sour cherry and oak. Fruity taste, old wood, cherries and musty prunes. Spritzy MF, and a very long fruity aftertaste. Excellent fruitbeer, quite lambic-like.

Foffern (1494) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 27, 2012
Bottle at home. Has a hazy reddish brown colour with small off-white head. Aromas of oak, leather, sour bitter berries and spices. It’s less sour in the flavour than expected, with grapes, sweet cherries, other berries, wood, and is vinous and dry in the end. Light bitterness, and has a light and slick mouth feel. A mild but round and balanced, tasteful sour ale, but maybe a bit sweet. I would like to have this as a companion to salty dishes.

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Fine balance, vinous, sweet and sour, pleasant enough. But I get the feeling that most of the sour ales from breweries who usually don’t make this type of beer feel like they come from the same chemistry set. You get a nearly identical result. More experimental, please!

500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Baked apple, lovely spicy aroma. Pleasant funk, but the cloves are very nice too. It’s just as good in the mouth, has a very nice sweetness from the malts, but the sourness cuts through the sugars, and keeps it crisp. There is alas a slight touch of soapiness occasionally. Some crap from the bottle makes it smoother and mellower, as expected. Much fruitier too - it’s baked apple with a full complement of raisins!
