4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A balanced mild citrus and sweet cereal aroma, some caramel, a hint of apple. Appears bright clear copper, swirls of off white foam. Tastes hoppy for a red, but in a good way, it brightens it up; sweet roast cereals and citrus background, finished with bitter hay. Palate is fizzy and a little oily. Overall, a very good red.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Very dark amber red. Decent lacing. Very subtle caramel nose. Surprisingly hoppy, a little piney. Mild caramel malt character. Great with food.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Mix between crimson & brown in color with only mild translucency at the edges. Beige-tan head settles quickly to a foamy collar. Moderate spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted bread, cocoa powder, & sticky sweet toffee. Grainy undertones with a touch of leafiness. Reminds me of a grown up Fat Tire. Flavor is amplified from the aroma. Sticky caramel, sweet toffee malts, faint vanilla, & a much bigger inclusion of hops. Mild leafy & earthy bitterness balances out a touch of back-end molasses with a finish made of caramel covered toasted nuts. Gets sweeter with time. Aside from the color, the aroma & flavor are almost more in line with a brown ale. Very malt heavy. Still pretty nice, but the pint has worn on me a little.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap @ Henrik. This is a cloudy really cloudy actually deep red brown one. A small islandy off-white head on top. It has a soft woody nose with traces of dark fruits, red currant juice and some slightly unpleasant skogsbær-yogurt. Strange stuff. Oh, it’s really infected this. Lots of dark wood and lactose sourness. It’s average on the small bubbles and light oily-dry in the mouth. Clearly infected. A strange not pleasant brew. Wonder if it’s supposed to taste like this. 21.12.2013

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours dark maroon, with a small creamy mocha head. Aroma is oak, dark fruits, berries, as well as some yeast and grain. Creamy body with light texture and soft to no carbonation. Flavour is tart on the border to sour with yeast, wood and a grainy not very fresh notes of barnyard reminiscent of acid reflux. Sweet fruity finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy deep red-hued amber body with a small off-white head. Nose is mild red fruits, rose water, hints of balsamic and grains. Taste is sour yeasty notes, balsamic, dry wooden notes, hints of grainy bread and caramel. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Weird; this is more like a sour ale than a red ale. Infected? Regardless, this is not too bad actually. :-)

This is probably not as the brewer intended, as it is a sour ale. Vinegar, but not extremly so. Gooseberries, malt, orange.
