Growler. A deep red beer with a thin light tan head. The aroma has notes of malt lacto bacteria, and wood. The flavor is acidic and sweet with notes of malt, bettanomyces, lacto, wood, and more - nice for the crazy beer geeks - I like. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

Tasting at Papsø’s, growler
Amber color. The aroma is mild, but funky, nice. Average body strength, some caramel flavor, fruity sourness, hiding a very light residual sweetness. It ends fruity and sour, with some cherries. Pleasant.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 Caveat: I am not a huge fan of sours, but I’ll try to be objective here. Of all the sour beers I’ve had this one is not that bad. I don’t know if I could finish a whole serving, but perhaps one day my palette will learn to love the sour. Anyway, it pours clear, light red with a fine, bubbly head. Nose is sour fruits and a little bread. Taste is sour, with notes of lemon, cherry and grapefruit (maybe). Very tingly in the mouth. Tart. Finishes crisper than anything I’ve ever had. Update 6/30/2010: It is incredible the way tastes change. I had this beer again last night (tap at Rattle n Hum) and enjoyed it immensely. I am bumping up my rating. The hype is real, folks. The hype is real.
