Rasmus40 (9832) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2011
Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is red wine, dried fruit and rather bretty. Flavor is quite sweet and light sour. Light sour and acidic finish. If you’re not a fan of red wine, which I’m not, have the unbarrelled version instead. 230311

Bottled. A hazy red beer with a bubbly brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, red berries, wood, brettanomyces, and red wine. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, brettanomyces, malt, caramel, red wine, and alcohol, leading to a dry tart and alcoholic finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.
