3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap @ Ølfestival København 2012. A murky brown beer with a small and quickly sidesticking off-white. Not by far as vinegar-ish and tart as the Merlot. I get wood, red currants, black currants and actually some chocolate! Quite great. Vinious and woody flavors, a bit sharp and acidic also. Lingering flavors. A great one and quite different. 10.05.2012
