TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
375 ml bottle shared by deyholla. Thanks, derek! This offering pours a deeper berry hue, darker haze yet a deep inviting glow from the berry. A frothy off hued head dies to a small film and laces small, well carbonated in the body. Aromas are sour berries, cranberry and lemons mix with gentle straw, horseblanket, lactic elements are firmly entrenched in this one. A touch of oak, mellow dryness, prickly carbonation and brett. Initial is pretty sour, inviting for someone like me. Big lactic and lemony elements, big cranberry elements add sourness to the fold, the berry itself. Thinner and carbonated well, gentle hay, straw, and mellow funk meet oak. Richly displays a good cranberry flavor, firmly sour. I can see this turning others off but I find it pretty damn good

Cloudy red - amber beer. Big pale tan head. Light sourness on the nose. Light crisp palate, dry. Medium sourness. Lemon and a little cranberry? As so often with these beers the fruit gets buried under the acid sourness. Light crisp finish.

deyholla (8120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to Theis! Pours a hazy amber with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of tart cranberries and a nice light funk note. Flavor has strong tart cranberry throughout with a strong acid finish and just a touch of funk.

drewbeerme (3898) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Derek. Pours bright cranberry, sugar, juicey. Good funk, bit cheesey though. Flavors soapy cranberry tartness, sour finish. Bretty. Better nose on it but a bile linger.

Flaske 0,33l. Påspandert og delt med flere under rateseanse på Tårnrommet 10 Jan 13. Rødbrun. Litt skyet. Veldig høyt luftig skum med bitte litt rosaskjær. Litt lacing. Frisk fruktaroma. Smaken er litt bitter & syrlig frukt med en touch av mandler i ettersmaken.

Rune (9344) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2013
375ml compact bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika. Shared with Elisabeth, Stefan and Finn. Rocky, white head, maybe with a rose-coloured shade. Cloudy, orange-reddish body. Aroma is very dry and acidulous. Sour berries and tart lemon to the taste buds. Basement dry ending, sour and sweet. Not a favorite of mine, however one glass was ok as a palate cleanser (Tromsø, 10.01.2013).

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - NOV 18, 2012
Tasted from the bottle @hone, on 26-05-12. Aroma is full of berries, sour-sweet, raspberries and many others. Taste is quite sour upfront, then a bit tart. The second wave is very refreshing, has lots of berries. Mouthfeel is high carbonated. After a few sips the tartness dominates in taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 Bottle at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Pours cloudy red with a small, pinkish head. Lots of bracing tartness and bitterness. Light metallic bite. Very decent, lasting fruit character. Good overall balance. Well done. (October 2012, score: 3.8)

Bottle shared at chriso’s pre-Christmas tasting 2014 - London. Pours clear pink with a creamy white head. Sweaty berry nose with light funk elements. Very tart, bitingly acidic, with light cereal, some diapers, berries. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sharply sour on the finish with more tart berries, strong acidity. Damn sharp overall.
