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!

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!
