750 mL bottle poured at a tasting. Reddish brown color pour with an active fizz head. Dark fruit aroma, with oak and soft malt. Earthy I suppose. Flavor is juicy up front. Soft spice, oak, mixed berry and black cherry flavors that linger. Very nice beer. Enjoyed this.

Vignale (2853) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2015
Flaska från demolenbeershop, batch 897, 2011 vintage. Stor kropp med rejäl sötma men ännu större syrlighet som är fruktig men också lite träig. Körsbär, plommon, jordgubbar, russin, syrliga äpplen, apelsinskal men även lätt kryddig med lite nejlika och muskot. Bra balans och mycket fat och lite funk. Riktigt gott.

katrinaez (957) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Tart Vinegar aroma with some yeast. Heavy haze red color. Tart cherries and raspberries up front, like the unripe ones that shouldn’t be picked. Sour and bitter Orange peel taste in the middle and ends on a begium bitter. Mouth is full bit easy to finish. Tap

On draft at York River Landing. Much more of a Belgian sour / lambic than a strong ale or a Christmas ale. Real craftsmanship, with balanced flavors from the malt and the yeast leading to a sour, tasty beer. Extremely good.

Draught at Mikkeller, San Francisco. Reddish chestnut brown, creamy beige head. Sour cherry and apples, mildly tard, herbal, cinnamon, caramel malty. Finish is dry but short, sadly considering the alcohol grade. Light-medium body and low carbonation.
