Slightly hazy dark red with a medium, fluffy head. A lot of berries both in the aroma and taste. Nicely tart with funk, wood, yeast and light notes of sugar. The finish was dry and very tart. I liked this beer a lot.

Mycket trevlig bärdoft tillsammans med lite peppar. Fin och välbalanserad syrlighet. Trevlig bärsmak. Gott gott.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml capped green bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. ABV is 7.7%. 1/3 of the beer leaked out in my suitcase during the flight from Oslo to Stavanger. (But that was nothing compared to another bottle where ALL the beer leaked out, and the two botlles that broke, despite being wrapped in bubblewrap.) Still plenty of carbonation left in the bottle. Pours fizzy with a large off-white / peach head, the beer is cloudy red. Intense aroma of brettanomyces / "farmhouse", cranberries and red wine vinegar. The flavour is very sour, lemony and crisp, plenty of cranberries, oaky notes.

Bottle thanks to Savvy1982! Clear cranberry colored pour, tons of carbonation and an aroma of dark fruit/cranberry. Flavor is very tart cranberry, funky and kind of minerally on the aftertaste. Very good.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Red hazy with a brownish tone, big pink head. Smells of funky brett, some barnyard, berries, cranberries and mint. The mint reminds me of my last dentist appointment :) Taste is fruity, not malty at all, light sweetness that is overrun by an agressive medium sour acid wall. It contains mostly of wild berries and cranberries. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Some bitter finish way back, it’s not what this beer is about anyway. Totally a quite nice beer.

Vineagar and saliva inducing berry aroma. Nice lambic with the berry flavour filling in the blanks.

375 ml bottle. Hazy deep red colour. Medium white fine-laced head. Loaded with citric acid. Notes of red berries. Some yeast. Crisp acidic flavours balanced with gentle delicate malts and currants. Delicious.

Bottle shared with my wife. Lovely dark pink with orangeish highlights. Aromas of sour berry fruit and light funk, maybe a little vinegar. Flavours are lovely: sour unripened berries, certainly cranberry, but with hints of strawberry too. Yoghurty lactic acidity and light vinegar tang. A little funk. This showed surprising depth, surpassing my expectations. Really nice.

Bottle. Very big delicate dirty pink tinged head on dirty dark amber. Aroma of barrels and hints of a sour taste to come. First sip raises the "goosies". Tart and sour. Lots of cranberry on a woody background.

Dumped out a huge slightly rose coloured big bubbly cap and a beautiful dark orange beer with a bit of a red tinge thrown in. Vinegar and some phenols, cranberry and 2x4 sawdust, it’s not all that spectacular smelling. Taste wise it’s good enough with vinegar harshness, wet woody notes, sour berries, mild bitterness somewhere. I do have pillowy soft teeth. Great carbonation. Tannic notes. Good drinking brew.
