Saeglopur (1053) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 29, 2015
750 ml, bottled 11-15-2012, shared by Mmahut at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Dark copper body, with a tiny, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of red wine, barnyard, dark and dried fruits, barrel notes.
Taste is more tart, with about the same aromas, but with the oak barrel more present.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes tart, wine like, with long-lasting, dry oak notes.

Tasty! Much more a Sour Red/Brown in my opinion. Pleasant wine and barrel notes, with a nice fruitiness, but also tart. Really enjoyable, luxurious, quite heavy beer.
