Thanks to hopscotch for coming through with some euro specials. This danish gem poured up a a cloudy reddish color with a massive cherry nose. I mean really this is maybe the most aromatic beer I have had the pleasure of dippin my beak in. The taste was acidic and tart with cherry, vanilla, funk, and vinegar runnin the show. Great beer........

30-JUN-2010, bottle on vacation @Tranum, from "Ølbutikken".
Giant bobbles that dissappear quickly. Murky red/brown.
Sour nose with some barnyard and (off course!) cherries.
Cherries not overdone, but making it fresh.
Not alcoholic with long sour cherry aftertaste.
I may start to like sours?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Head gone in the blink of an eye; hazy foxy-ruby beer, big bubbled on the glass. Sharp sourish nose with acetic & lactic acids, and fruitesters, krieken. Very fresh sour cherries flavour, soem fruit- and yeastesters, some fruitsugars at the finish all the same. Burning fruit- (and other)acids, astringent, even. There is a bit of Cantillon in there, indeed. It’s nice, honest fruit, but it is also a bit... sought.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Pours relatively red amber with a small, creamy, off-white/pink head. Aroma is tart, lots of funkiness, some slight cherries, lots of oak, a tad medicinal in character. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel, where the lively small bubbles dance on my tongue. Flavour is really nice, there is loads of oak character, slightly medicinal, yeah, but I really like it. Cherries, fair tartness, dry, a peppery feel to the tartness. In the aftertaste, the fruitiness takes on a slight nutty/chocolate feel (like KRE). Very nice... too bad that Denmark’s crashing out of the World Cup.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
250ml bottle bought at Ølbutikken Copenhagen in early May. Fits nicely into my little sample glass from Ølfestivalen 2010. First pour leaves a near-clear, red-brown body to a naked surface. Cloudy second pour. Aroma of tart berries. Acidic taste of sour and sweet berries added by notes of yeast. Tart, drying finish with dusty yeast. Alright as a palate cleaning aperitif, without being a favourite of mine (Tromsø, 12.06.2010).
