aroma has strong sour character and some background sweet/floral action. pours a deep brown with tan head...good lacing. Flavor is not as sour as aroma would indicate: instead, malty, with a little nuttiness, and very smooth. excellent flemish brown.

Bottle. Pours copper brown with a small, quickly diminishing beige head. Aroma is mild sour apple with some earthy notes. Flavor is initially tart and acidic with sweet caramel toffe notes coming in quickly before a lightly soured fruit finish. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice beer, poured a redish brown with soft white head slight iron on the palate and on the nose flavour is slightly reminiscient of black doris plum seeds mixed with a sourish note. Very dry on the finish.

Acidic sour brown beer. I like sour. I like (well, kind ’er like) acidity. ...but sour acidity isn’t that pleasant. It was too much in your face for me. A bit like drinking dilute battery acid. ...but thanks go to Harrisoni I for letting me try this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma was tart with a strong acidity and an oak presence. The aroma was earthy and had hints of estery cherry character. Some light presence of chocolate was notable as well. The beer poured into the glass clear medium brown with a white low head that did lace the glass. The flavor was grainy and lightly tart with a citrusy acidity. A light presence of chocolate was notable and a tart cherry character coupled with a nice presence of oak. The finish went dry with lasting impressions of fruit and oak. The body was medium light and with a decent level of carbonation the beer was quite refreshing. A nice beer, nothing complex, but still a nice thirst quenching bottle. 25 cl bottle. 17 06 04

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A sweet and sour aroma of flowers and apples. Appears clear light golden yellow, thin foam, but nice lace. Taste is mostly sour balanced with some sweet and slight bitterness of bubblegum and apple. Palate is a little foamy, and thinnish. Overall, this is a very good beer! Should be considered a Berlinerweise.
