3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 fl oz picked up at Discount Liquors for a good price of 3.50, and although it sat in my cold car for a long time the quality did not seem to fade. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Sour nose. Wood, hay, horse blanket, a little sour cherries and lemons. Flavor is about the same. Oak, lemons, grapes, orange, hay, wood, hay and earthy. Flavors are a touch watery but balanced well with a dry and slightly acidic finish. Very satisfying when in the mood for a slightly sour and funky beer.

Eerst even gekeken wat voor soort bier dit was en dan kun je de verrassing toch beter waarderen. Zurig ik moest toch denken aan de krieken.

Bottle, 7.3%. Acidic aroma, lactic. Clear golden colour, nice stable white head. The flavour is also acidic, distinctly, but not overwhelming. Has a good, satiating acidity. Actually quite good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (alko - via mirjukka - thanks!)
Clear amber with a healthy tight pale head. Light fruit sweetness and sourness. Soft and sour on the tongue. Bursting with refreshing light malty tastes before you even swallow, and a very pleasant sourness that zings on the tongue, and builds up to be the major flavour after swallowing. The light malt character is very mellow, but I can’t actually pinpoint the oak in the aging that this is usually a sign of. The finish is in part quite dry, but not drying, and otherwise more of the mellow light malts. And no hint of 7.3% - fantastic - I’d session this without a second thought! A few acidic esters stop this from really excelling, but it is a very tasty beer on the whole.
