3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle from Barley Wine @ Hotel Room in Copenhagen. This is a really deep dark brown with a little bit of red in it, and it has a heavy lacing good looking beige top. Lots of aromas here, really tart and vinous. Loads of sour red berries with wood and gooseberries. Not bad at all. It feel a bit thin on the mouthfeel this, was expecting something g else and the carbonation level is about average. It’s a sour Flemish ale alright, but far from the best I’ve had. Red sour berries, a sweetness underneath and the oak is really shining through. Slightly warming finish down the throat. Not a big favorite, but some good flavors. 04.05.2013

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into fluted snifter. Appearance is a very dark reddish brown with an airy off white head, almost tan. Aroma is very tart with sweet cherries and faint oak finish. Taste is a lot of sugar/sweet up front that gets supported by the tartness. Mild bitterness on the middle of the tongue, high carbonation, and a relatively dry and quick finish.

Ruby pour with a foamy tan head.
Aroma is sharp sour cherry and light oak.
Sharp acidic cherry tartness in the flavour. Not too sour though. Light woody oak. Nice light tart finish.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Mörkt rubinröd med livligt högt skum. Markerad sötma, jäst och druvor i doft. Sötma går igen i smak där den möter citrusig syra. Sträv eftersmak.

Draft at Taproom 307 after the big RB tasting at Matt’s. Pours dark reddish brown with an offwhite head. Aroma and taste is tart, woody, oakey, and lots of cherries. It’s slightly thin, softly carbonated and pretty drinkable.

Absolutely refreshing aroma and mouthfeel. Yet very complex and long lingering carbonated fizzing aftertaste. I need to try more in this style
