3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep garnet brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is acidic, woody, toasty, caramel and old hay, then a light earthy funk, fruity and tart vinous notes. Flavor is toast, wood, tart floral notes, sort of like rose hips, sour plum, a hint of turbinado sugar, a little booziness, tart vinous notes and finishing with some acidic, fruity vinous notes, an interesting minerality old hay and a little earthy funk. Medium body, slick, somewhat boozy feel and light, spritzy and blanketing carbonation. Really good stuff overall, it could use a little more oomph in the flavor department to push past the booziness a little, but it is interesting and pleasantly warming as it is. The mouthfeel is a little strange, but somehow fits the beer well, almost like some strange cocktail made with things that won’t keep the carbonation long.

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?!?

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.

Owocowo-winne, wisniowe, kwasne ale i slodkawe, nawet jakis karmel czy cola sie przewija, drewno, lekkie, niezobowiazujace. Pozytywne zasko!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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).
