Bottled. An unclear red beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of sour cherries and brettanomyces. The flavor is acidic with strong notes of sour cherries, phenol, acetone, and lacto as well as some notes of wood and caramel, leading to a very tart cherry and acetone finish. Nice one. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottled, from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Lightly hazy reddish copper colour, small head. Really tart and acidic with sharp vinegar and lemon dominating. Above medium bodied with sour cherries and some peppery alcohol warmth. Very intense, and definitely a beer that stands out. Wow!
