Bottle at home from dicey O’Reilly’s
Dark ruby purple with crimson tinged white head with cherry yoghurt aroma. Medium body with sharp acidic notes followed by fruity cherry and citric acid finish. Rich fruit notes and plenty of sourness. Pretty tasty but not as complex as cantillon or boon.

Fra flaske, tak Gisle. Så smuk en øl. Let uklar rubinrød med et frodigt lyserødt skum. Duft for meget af slikbod og tutti-frutti-is og for lidt af kirsebær, mandel og syrlig frugt. Maltbasen er desværre meget sød og jeg savner en afsluttende astringens eller tørhed.

Opaque dark red - purple beer. Good head, a vibrant rose pink colour! Palate is crisp and pretty dry. Dry tart cherry, dark cherry. Light floral tang. Touches of blackberry and blackcurrant. It’s not acidic but definitely quite sour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright purple body and even brighter pink head. Oh my! Lactic aroma, cherry, yoghurt, but dry fruity and cake like malts. Solid sourness yet the dominant bacteria actually work very nicely in the taste, since there is a solid full mouth feel of biscuit malt and sugars. Sharp yet small carbonation. Surprising and interesting. Hardly beer, but I do very much like it, to my own surprise. Hard to give a rating, but the taste is especially pleasant and it has shocking looks, so a solid rating will follow despite it not being something I?d drink every day. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during the Gunnar Tasting. Thanks to our guest of honour! Pours deep purple-red with a red-pink froth head. The nose is all dried cherries, poop. Sturdy tart berry flavor with slight funk, faint acidity, a bit of grassy bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation and creamy texture. Moderately clean to finish with jerky acidity, tart cherries. Good.

Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Drukket i Skibotn 27 Des 13. Dyprød. Pent rosa skum som varer litt og etterlater litt lacing. God kirsebær-/mandelaroma. Smaken er litt syrlig. Sur kirsebær. Dette holder seg lenge og er uforanderlig. Bra øl som dessert eller til dessert.

Enjoyed from bottle. Intense cherry red with a slight haze. Pink-shaded, lacing blond top. Big juicy and candied cherry aroma. Notes of cherry stones and wet wood. Dryish-tart, sappy mouthfeel. Taste is armloads of sour/tart cherries. Also some creamed caramel, and hint of dough. Full fruity-tart finish.
