4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 33 cl from Ølbutikken. The pour is deep red with almost no transparency topped with a pink frothy head that choose to stick around. The nose is pure seet and sour nose from lovely fresh cherries - reminds me almost about christmas and our Rice pudding topped with hot cherry-sauce (without any other comparison) In the aroma there is some wooden notes with a sharp acidic profile behind it. The taste is a bit milder than expected and have a rounder side with the sweet cherry notes in focus. The mouthfeel is medium with a lasting sourness that fades out in a bitter soapy finish where you really can taste the bret. Its absolutely ione of the best beers I have had from NB - or maybe I have been missing out the sour stuff for too long.
