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.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
The foam is poor and has a tart and moderate flavor. Not astringency acidity, such as Hornbeer warns, but rather in a slightly vinous shape, which also little fruit flavors (berry fruits) fit on the tongue. A slight bitterness in the dry finale there will also be room for. Tasty and a great alternative to wine.

daje (4123) - NORWAY - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle Dark red body with a big offwhite head. Aroma of barnyard, berries, vinegar. Taste is quite sour, with very notable warm fusel alcohols, not very pleasant. Some fruitiness, orange, raisins, but the booze taste destrys this for me.

FatPhil (14098) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2013
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!

Dark amber color with red hue; small head. The aroma is mildly fruity and sour, and pond water. The mouthfeel is dry and astringent, it reminds me of some French farmhouse cider; there is a little flavor of malt, and very light acidity; but the fermentation produced some byproducts, similar to glue, and other chemicals… (I have to stop here)
Messy and deeply unpleasant.
