3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.
