Cimbasso (328) - - AUG 19, 2014
A very dark ruby colour with a beige head. Intriguing slightly sour flavour with hints of cranberry and red wine, giving this beer a taste very redolent of Christmas. Refreshing, with hardly any flavour of hops, almost like a red wine. Good balance and character.

thebeertourist (5025) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
On tap at Cardinal. Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Sour fruit and chocolate nose and flavours. Some spiciness. Quite accomplished without appearing too extreme. Dangerously drinkable.

jaghana (4380) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle 33cl from Henrik, a dark beer with medium copper head. Nose is on dark chocolate and belgian yeast. Aroma is on dark chocolate with light acidity, it’s like a stout fermented with belgian yeast. Ok body, alcoholic touch, unusual beer.

TBone (13447) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Keg@CBC2013 as "Grand Cru"
Dark brown color, small steady beige head. Caramelly, sweet nose. Medium-bodied. Kind of lagerish, caramelly flavor. This is weird, only some caramel and alcohol.

CloakedDagger (1078) - - NOV 11, 2013
On tap. Pours a reddish brown with a small beige head. Nose has some tart red berries with a slightly "metallic" bloody touch. Medium body, again this tart fruitiness that never becomes overly sour - just pleasantly challenging without ever getting over the top. No real hop character much and feels nowhere near 9%! A nice "sour" for beginners. 111113

Leighton (13198) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 2. As ’Lervig Grand Cru’. Pours clear, red-brown with a creamy tan head. Belgian yeast on the nose with toasty and doughy bread and light chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor with semi-ripe fruits and mellow, tangy berries. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Light warmth in the finish with rich, sugary ripe fruits. Very nice.
