3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red grape aroma pervades here- were they trying to make a wine? The oak is light overall with some sourness and slight leather. Appearance is very dark amber/red with bone head. Flavor matches the nose, but with some herbal presence; the finish is sour and vinous overall. Palate is creamy with some prickly bubbles. Solid, not anything too outstanding.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Hmm. Very little notes. Seems like I found it to be very strange and hard to describe. Oaky, dry, sour, harsh medicinal bitterness. Body medium, carbonation near flat. Too much wood. A strange brew even though I’ve grown to like Sours.
Will probably rerate when in Italy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2015 300 ml on tap at Il Maltese. Dark orange/light copper, pretty hazy, with a small, bubbly but persistent beige head. Damn, the aroma is huge, pungent and intense. Balsamic vinegar, wood/oak, a bit of leather presence and sweet fruits under spirit. Slightly funky as well, but it’s perhaps too complex/difficult for me as it change quite a bit with every sniff, and there are some notes I can’t really describe. Not overly tart/sour, surprisingly the malts taste is there togheter with a nuts/green coffe beans presence. Woody, fruity and slightly smoky aftertaste. Average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly oily texture. Very interesting and pleasent enough.
