4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 titty beer from ajm on 12/20/2009.
almost cloudy pour... orange brown with a clingy white head.
wow! very odd aroma... very burgundian with lots of layers... perfume, spice, dill pickles, bay leaves, medicine/plastic/latex love, minerals, vanilla, earthy rhubarb and even some rotting garbage water... you know, good stuff.
the palate is malty and fruity up front while very dry on the finish.... wet wood, rhubarb, pickles and even salt show up before the spice and mineral-y brett kick in. it reminds me a lot of sweetened kombucha with cranberry juice... only... mixed with garbage water. yet it’s delicious???
the body is full (some oomph and substance) although the spice and crispness make it sexy to drink.
odd for sure... and i like it! 9/4/8/4/17/4.2
bottle at daknole’s on 6/6/10.
this bottle is full of poblano peppers and lots of rubber/plastic. it also lacks the yeasty salty element from the previous bottle. it is still good but not nearly as mind blowing as last time. 7/4/7/4/16/3.8

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Gusher, pours hazy amber with a large airy off white head that fades quickly to a wispy film. Aroma is tart sour spearmint and funk with a subtle scent of sugary fruit. Taste is funk sour tartness some stinky cheese and rotten fruit of apple/cranberries and more spearmint. Palate is thin to medium with a ton of carbonation and a drying lactic finish. This is mellow, but sharp in the way that it finishes.

Big thanks to MikeLovesBeer for sharing this one. Not sure how old this one is but since it’s a sour I can’t imagine any harm came to it. It wasn’t an overpowering sour, just somewhere in the middle. Nice fruit balance and tartness to boot.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with an orange hue and creamy beige head. The aroma is wild yeast but no berries since this bottle is a few years old. The flavor brings wild yeast and then some sweet, non-pungent berry notes tickling the backend nicely. The carbonation was gushing either unlike the other Norwegian wild ale with cranberries I just drank.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home, 50 cl, batch 337, brewed on 30 01 08, bbd 30 04 18, stored in my cellar. Unclear orange with a frothy but quickly diminishing off white head. Entiding funky, sour sweet fruity berry aroma, spicy, barnyard, with lots of lingonberries. Flavor is bretty, bitter lingonberries, sweet pale malts, wood. Sparkling, astringent, drying mouthfeel. Full body, bitter lingoberries and maybe a little bitter hops in the finish. Different, funky, flavorful.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy brown liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma is very funky with notes of barnyard, sweat, toilet, lingonberries, oak, a bit lacto, very light biscuity malt and wheat. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with some lingonberries (harsh lingonberries) and funk. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. This funk isn’t very well executed, it’s all over the place. Some nice lingonberry though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Courtasy of Inbreak. Bottled 2008. Has a clear amber colour with a small light beige-grey head which is pretty compact and lasting. The beer is very carbonated. Nice and sour aroma of wood, bitter berries, pine, heather, red currants, and feels slightly sweet. Wonderful balanced sourness in the flavour along with wood, cranberries, barnyard, cheese and burned wood in the end. Sparkly and soft mouthfeel, and light bitterness. A delicious beer with a nice touch of norwegian forest. Round and nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place, obtained a while back. Gushes upon popping the cap off. Pours a hazy ruby-tinted amber. The huge off-white head settles quickly. Aroma of cranberry, grape, funk, oak, and sweet malts. Flavor of cranberry, herbs, oak, grape skins, and earth. Medium-bodied, with a fruity, mineral mouthfeel that dries up quickly. High carbonation. Interesting sour, really liked the nose.

Cloudy brown - orange beer. Frothy off white head. Odd nose. Brett, herbs, fruit, smoke! Bone dry palate. Tart unsweet cranberry with subtle but odd herby smoke. Chalky bone dry finish. Odd taste, awful palate.
