Pours a reddish brown color. Minimal head retention in the tulip glass. Aroma is of green apples and hints at the acidity of the beer. Taste is dry and tart almost vinegary. On the finish there is an earthy note and hints of sour cherry. Good beer but not my favorite sour, too dry.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is of berries and citrus fruits. The taste is sour, berries, light oak barrels and perhaps slightly floral. Great bitterness which fills the front of the mouth forever. Very easy to drink beer I can enjoy a long while. Does not feel quite so heavy to be a sour beer. Very good grades. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Tap at brews. Pours dark dark red hue with a small light brown head. Aroma is light wood, tart cherry, traces of vanilla, the aroma is actually faint overall. Taste is dark fruit, cherry, vanilla and wood, then a nice acidic and tart finish. Pretty damn good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy reddish brown with a finger of frothy light tan head. Aroma of cherries, apples, almond icing, barrel wood. Taste is rich tart - green apples, grass, slightly citrusy. Rich sour finish with just a hint of balancing sweetness. Crisp, light body with soft to average carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015 bottling. Pours a very dark, nearly opaque brown with beige head. Pretty complex aroma right out of the blocks with tart berries, roasted malts, old wood, a hint of chocolate and mushrooms. Feels rather like a blend of a stout and a sour beer on the nose. Big acidic attack on the palate, but then it smooths out towards the middle when some roasted malts and woody notes emerge to round it out. Medium bodied, medium finish. Very interesting. I'll grab a few more bottles to lay down.

Really nice sour red/brown. Sour caramel and some cherry, cedar and maple wood character really came through nicely. Great tart overtones with rewky nice lively carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: dark purplish brown with a short, fizzy light tan head quickly fading. Aroma: pretty typical sour red, with balsamic, cherry, and wood notes over some leather. Taste: bracingly tart up front, with cherry, raspberry, light green apple, and semi-sweet balsamic, with a hint of soy sauce and wet stick. Finish: dry, lingering dark fruit, a bit musty. Notes: A pretty good take on the style. Not the best I’ve had from the U.S., but near the top. Well-executed. Bottle from Roots Market.
