Keg at the GBBF 2016. Cloudy ruby with a rim of white froth. Sour cherry aroma. The taste is big and rich with sour cherry and woody notes. Loved it. Beer of the festival.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2016
Bottleshare with bratchris - Cola-candy, grapeskins, slight rubber on the aroma. Flavor is not very sour, with notes of apple, nailpolish, oak, vanilla, slight red wine vinegar and the sort of fake forest fruit aroma you get from cheap lozenges, not in a bad way tho. This beer is incredibly complex and well balanced. Good!

Bottled. Pours clear redish deep brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of funk, barnyard notes, berries, red grapes and citrus. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Sour indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

jmm635 (991) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2016
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!

M_Sack (620) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Bru during a sour event. Poured a murky very dark reddish purple with no head in particular. Sour dark berries. Dried black raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Currants. Merlot. Bing cherries. Treacle. Tart brew with pleasantly refined dark fruit and oak.
