375 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a moderately hazy purple with a pink head of foam. The aroma has a berry pie filling character to it with a juicy tartness coming through nicely. The taste is a funky, floral tartness that really dries out in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Bottle (375ml) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Very good-looking with half-inch pink foam and shiny, dark blueish red colour. Aroma of vinegar, tart blackcurrant, horseblanket, leather. Medium body, soft carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel. Fruity, tart taste, a good deal of sweetness initially, then mostly sour and vinegary, with a profound fruitiness all along. Overall very pleasant.
