4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful, dark magenta color with very thin head. Aroma of oak, sour cherries, raspberries, and light vinegar. Flavor is sweet and tart and well balanced. I love it - in the running for best sour beer I’ve ever had!

Tap @ The Local Taphouse, Sydney. I expected a darker colour, this was wheat coloured (? Correct beer poured). In any case their were strong vinous notes in the aroma. This was mirrored through the palate with a refreshing, fruity, yet sour flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost nonexistent head. No froth at all. Cranberry red colour. Sour cranberry, barnyard at first. Funky, spicy hints and berries again in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, low carbonated interesting drink. The bottle shoud be definitely shared.

375ml bottle. Clear mahagony red/brown color. Tiny size, very brief head. Leather, slightly rotten cherry, mold, bit woody and maybe rhubarb in aroma. Woody cherries, sour, rotten fruits and plastic in taste. Rotten cherries and acidic in aftertaste. Soft fizz. Slick mouthfeel. Not for me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Balsamic aroma. Acetic acid is always wrong in beer. Some cherry aspects. But fruity and does have some other interesting characters once you’re past the vinegar. Oh, shit, and then you taste it, and it all comes rushing back. Cherry again. Woodiness. Palate acidic and watery, has none of the aspects I love in 3F, Cantillon, Boon, etc. This is a travesty of sour beer. Finish dirty and dusty and dry. Finished the glass, that’s the biggest compliment I can pay.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy red beer, quickly diminishing white head. Nose is fruity, some woody notes, mild caramel. Flavor is red fruits, dryness, woody caramel and a nice smack of balsamic vinegar. And by nice I mean not that nice. Lingering dryness, fruit and vinegar.
