Thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass brownish-red, small head. Fruity-sourish aroma. Starts very fruity like cherries, more and more sour and less fruity. Woody notes in the finish. The fruity notes could last a bit longer, still an interesting beer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muddy red colour with no foam at all. Strong aromas of fruits, some cherries and other berries. The nose is not very sour but overpowering with alcohol and something sweet and sticky, almost like acetum. Full bodied with and very boozy. Some sourness coats my mouth.. Not really my cup of tea I like my sour ales lighter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear reddish color ale with a small bubbly head with no retention and no lacing. Aroma of tart cherries and oak notes is quite sour with light funky notes. Taste is also a mix between some tart cherries with light oak and some barnyard notes. Acidity level is well balanced with low carbonation. Well balanced mix between some sour cherry notes is quite interesting but not as complex as I had anticipated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of Meilby. It looks quite ugly in the glass, with an unclear, reddish dark golden body and a minimal off-white head. Just a ring ouf bubbles actually. Cherries on the nose, with some oak, vanilla, maltyness and a good dash of vinegar. Its mouthfeel is of course acidic and puckering, but also sort of like drinking whip cream. Lots of cherry and vinegar both initially and in the end. Well, I like the aroma and flavor, but it still isn’t very nice. 110524
