Bottle. Pours a darkish red/brown color with very little head. Aroma of funkyfruits and a bit of a sourness. Taste of sour candy with a little hint of apples and raspberries at the beginning. Sour taste lingers.

BenOver (262) - SLOVENIA - AUG 24, 2016
Pours dark brown, with minimum off-white top, which quickly diminishes. Aroma of strong scotch-oak like notes, some sour and coffee finish. Strong sour, acrid taste. I dislike it. May be a faulty batch?!?

FinnIckler (23) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle from hopfen und Malz in Berlin. After trying the cuvee yesterday and really enjoying it, I had to try this. Pours deep Red. Heavy carbonation. Smells of cherry, Apple and grapes. Tastes more sour than the cuvee, but still fruity and a bit sweet. Great beer, but i like the cuvee more.

Rami Rami is drinking a Goudenband (2015) by Brouwerij Liefmans at Powiśle Owocowo-winne, wisniowe, kwasne ale i slodkawe, nawet jakis karmel czy cola sie przewija, drewno, lekkie, niezobowiazujace. Pozytywne zasko!

Rune (11054) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2016
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Good looking with its bubbly, beige head resting over a deep rosewood coloured body. Clingy lacing. Berry fruit aromas joined by elements of caramel and cheese, dry. Berry fruit tartness to the taste profile backed by yeast and dried fruits, caramel malts beneath. Lingering tart and sweet ending. Well bodied. Gets rather sweet in the long run, still a very solid brew (Tromsø 20.08.2016).

This is one of my favourite beers. It has a very rich taste. Wood, apple, cherries. I highly recommend it.
