tmrmwel (1033) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light, brownish red, with an immense head. Aroma is brett and lots of fruitiness from berries, as well as an oaky whiff of wood. Flavour is sour from the brett, but with a tremendous fruitiness. Here’s fruit, oak, earthy notes and a nice fruity sourness all at once. Delightful! The fruity, sweetly acidity sticks through the finish.

gunnar (5598) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle from Ølkonsortiet, Ålborg. Pours hazy pinkish with a huge frothy light pinked head. Aroma is acidic, with berries and funky yeast. Taste is fruity tartness, fresh and crisp, almost astringent. Lingering fruity aftertaste, dry & bitter.

Vestergaard (424) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2012
Dark red beer with white head. Beautiful beer Smells like yoghurt and medication, yeast and jelly. The taste is very sour. Lots of berries and again sourness.. This beer is dedicated to sourness. Exciting, but a little too much.

ClubGonzo (4163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep amber body with a coppery hued and a medium off-white head. Aroma is lemon, cranberries, heather, hints of lime, straw and faint paint thinner. Taste is intense lemon citric sourness, sour leaves and hints of red berries. Dry, sour and delicious. Very fresh and drinkable, and I guess the best I’ve had from this series.

ej (763) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2012
Color is like a blend of orange and pink, hazy, hints of paint-thinner sour&sweet, fruity&citrus Acidic and sour, very refreshing. Tart and dry. Light mouthfeel and dry.

sarauckelman (210) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Thick head with large bubbles underlying a layer of thin foam (which tastes delightful all on its own). Extremely sour cranberry flavor, strong cranberry aroma. Color is pinkish-orange, not quite amber. Palate is thin, sharp, acidic, and sparkly. Absolutely fantastic.

uckelman (312) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Fantastic cranberry aroma. Lots of foamy, pinkish-white head. Jaw-clenchingly sour, like I would expect from cranberries, with just a hint of sweetness on the finish. Reddish amber in the glass.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
Half champagne-sized bottle, kindly shared by larsga. Unclear reddish body. Tall pink-shaded blond head. Sour-acidic berry aroma. Brett and vinegar tones. Taste is strong lemon-acidic, with cranberries in the background. Sparkling, almost fizzy mouthfeel. Dry tart and woody notes in an acidic ending.

berlinoise2go (623) - NORWAY - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle (375ml) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Hazy ruby/orange colour. Huge, light pink head, receding as an impressively shaped foam structure, settling as an uneven film with lots of sticky lacing. Massively fruity aroma with raspberry, sour cherry, cranberry, arctic bramble, grape kernel, vinegar, barnyard. Medium body, lively carbonation. Sweet juicy and tart taste with a slightly burning vinegar acidity - nicely balanced, maybe a bit heavy on the vinegar. Long juicy/tart/vinegary aftertaste.

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange-pink color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the cranberries with a light amount of tartness and some sweet sugar notes. The flavor is a little bit different. I get some sour cranberries as well as some vinegar notes and some toffee. There is also a hint of funk. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.
