3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (my Belgian rating #700). Deep reddish brown colour with brown foamy head. Aroma is fruits, earth and some acidic notes. Flavour is really sour malts, fruity hops and licorace. Quite pleasant and wellbalanced brew. Could be a bit more sour.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Reddish brown with a small, beige head. Lightly vinegary almost rotten aromas. Typical and very pronounced metallic flavours. But unlike most sour ales this has more sweet than sour. And even some bitter hops in the finish. Not bad, but not very typical for it’s style. 050398
