Bottle shared by Dallas, thanks man! Pours a cloudy brown color with a swirling white head. A sour nose with oak and cherries. The flavor is a good Old Bruin inspired brew with tart cherry, woody, brown sugar, light sawdust. Very nice.

yngwie (13562) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a more or less clear body, reddish dark golden in color and with a thin layer of off-white bubbles. The aroma is berry-ish and sourish, quite straightforward. Blueberries? The flavor is mostly on the berry side, with some vinegar, lemon notes and a touch of malts. Quite dry. Berry finish. Well, not my favorite, itís nice, but lacks big time on complexity. 121109

2012 bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small head that lingers a bit. Aroma is sour fruit, cheese, and oak wood. Taste is not bad but not very complex. Very tart and somewhat dry fruitiness with a hint of oak. Overall itís ok but Iím also not a big sour guy.
