3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: a combination of apple juice concentrate and mushy brown apples beneath an apple tree in autumn, honestly, that’s the aroma that predominates to me, and I’m not even sure if apples are in any way involved in the brewing of this beer; Appearance: a very pale yellow on the pour that turns more orange/golden as you fill up the glass, light, white head that quickly dissipates after the pour, decent, consistent streams of bubbles that collect at the edge of the glass; Taste: a strong sour punch without any sweet (aka: not candy-like) upon initial draught, followed almost immediately by a bitter aftertaste and maybe something reminiscent of medicine, indeed, this is a very strange beer, maybe some soggy wood in there somewhere, the malts are hidden behind the sour, but, to me, the hops are completely masked by the sour, I still taste something apply, maybe almost apple vinegar, since I love sour ales, this is all very good to me, but I’m pretty certain that my wife would resolutely refuse to finish the glass after the first draught; Palate: mostly, the sour lingers, not a lot of complexity in the palate, mostly, I think, because the hops are so masked by the sour; Overall: a nice sour ale experience, since I still don’t have many sour ale experiences under my belt, I can’t really say one way or the other whether or not this is superior in its class...I’d definately recommend it to an adventurous beer drinker though!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. In the cellar for a year. Pours pale gold with a light haze, and an off-white head. On the nose, sour cherry, tart apple, faint oak, and more sour cherry. Taste wise, tart acidity, calvados, and sour cherry that leads into some serious tartness with again, more of the cherry, with light oak and pomegranate in the finish.

Getrunken im CAFE DE KOFFER in Groningen. 25cl/3,90€ vom Fass. Definitiv hart säuerlich, mit viel Kräuteraromatik. Abgerundet wird das extreme Geschmackserlebnis von einem leichten Kümmelflair. Wild und üppig weinig. Willst du auf den Weinfassboden? Dann komm herunter 😀!!!
