3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Old rating rerated 20.10.2014, 0,25l bottle shared with a colleague @ hotel room in Ulsteinvik:
Small bubbly shortlasting head, nice slightly "dirty" reddish color. Aroma is kind of dry chemical, in a good way, thinner, oak, berry skin, grass, sour cherries, vinegar. Taste is first kind of mild and fruity, before the dry sourness takes over, slightly dry sour cherries, oak, grass, vinegar, sorrel, thinner, berry skin. Medium bitterness, dry acidic mouthfeel. Nice, and a lot better than last time I tried it a few years back...

Smell is sour and acetic with bread, red wine vinegar, sour cherries, moist wood, leather, paint thinner, moist hay, soil, lemon juice and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, heavy sour and slightly fruity with bread, sour cherries, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, pure acetic acid, moist hay, moist soil, leather, cherry hard candy, plums, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is heavy tart, slightly dry, mouth-puckering, tiny boozy and medium bodied. finish is heavy sour and slightly fruity with bread, red wine vinegar, sour cherries, moist hay, plums, moist soil, leather, overripe lemons and hint of pure acetic acid. Way too acetic for me. Extremely hard to drink…

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I smell the alcohol, but don?t taste it. Very unusual beer. Delicious. Sour funky nose, light but present. Taste is full palate pleaser, different flavors hitting different parts of my mouth. Light carbonation on the front end, funk not overdone, sour cherries linger and dissipate into nothingness. Wow.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is slightly hazy orange, with minimal white slightly creamy white head.
Aroma has some funk to it, sour cherries, green apples, sour sweets, leather, slight earth/dirt notes, caramel, shoe sole, apple cider vinegar, citrus, lemon peel, barnyard and hay. Pretty interesting for sure, and has a lot more to it than expected.
The taste is pretty darn sour, but has a surprisingly sweetness to it as well.
Medium bodied with a semi-flat carbonation.
I quite dig this... Oh yeees.. Yeessss...
