phaleslu (6551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
500 ml bottle from The Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a deep amber color with a medium off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, celery, vanilla, sugar, and rotten fruit. Flavor of berries, balsamic, apples, vanilla, caramel, and leaves. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, fruity, vinegary mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The mix of vinegar, vegetables, and fruit doesn’t work for me so much in this one.

thirdeye11 (5549) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2012
(500ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear still copper, nose of paper, odd wood, subdued, weird sourness and acetone with some cider vinegar too. Taste of cider vinegar, quite tart, acetone, really pretty nasty.

Yorker (1210) - Herning, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy reddish brown with a little sediment and a small off-white head that fades and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is bitter and tart with hints of vinegar, caramel malt, sour berries. Taste is very tart and acidic and is dominated by sour berries and vinegar.

berlinoise2go (615) - NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Small offwhite head, settles as an uneven ring with large bubbles. Murky reddish/orangey brown colour. Aroma of wine vinegar, dried sweet fruit, caramel, raspberries, oak. Medium body, flat carbonation. Sour-sweet taste with a slightly burning vinegar sensation. Mildly bitter/tart. Despite the ABV and acidity, I find it quite easy to drink.

mrmartin (669) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Reddish brown pour with no head. Nose is rich and malty with sour esters behind. Slightly sour quad. Syrupy sweet overall. Rich full bodied. Slightly woody drier finish.

drpimento (2233) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Poured a bit cold with a fizzy, light tan head that soon settles to a ring andno lace. Color is a hazy red orange with amber highlights. Aroma is fruit, grape, vinegar. Flavor’s like nose but much more intense, to the point that some of the flavors are chemically. Pronounced sweettartness with some bitter. Body is ok although the chemical thing isn’t too good, carbonation is just right. Finish is like flavor, long, and this is the only bottle for me.

PhillyCraft (3252) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at Farmers Cabinet for the 25 draft Mikkeller event. Pours a light colored brown. Aromas of vinegar, oaky wood, cherries. Taste is very grapey and ultra tart. Pretty acidic.

visionthing (2751) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2012
50cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - Thanks! Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of sour berries, red currant and raisins. Fruity and sour with flavour of sour berries. Nice bitterness and very refreshing. Nice sour ale. (2012-05-26)

Sigmund (5128) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2012
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. The original label says ABV is 9.99%, an extra label put on by Nøgne Ø says ABV is 9.75%. Slightly hazy brown colour, moderate white head. The aroma has some notes of red wine vinegar and oak, but is first and foremost dominated by cheap industrial vinegar. The flavour is very sour and vinegary, but also very sweet and sugary, without any noticeable bitterness. Completely unbalanced. My first drainpour from Mikkeller.

Arve_Christian (3090) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle from Vinomonopolet Vika. Golden color, ok foam. Full body & high complexity. Intense sour aromas and well balanced. Powerful and very enjoyable
