375 ml bottle 2009 (also draft). Pours a hazy ruby brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have tart black cherry, sweet caramel and toffee, oak, Brett, some acidity but a bit dry at the finish. I liked the sweet sour combination and the subtle notes created by the different Brett strains and oak barrel.

Took me 5 minutes getting the cork out. Opens without a pop. Pours real flat with no head whatsoever, color is murky brown. Very limited amount of carbonation. Aroma is vinegar, overripe fruit and red berries. Very vinous taste with again vinegar, sour cherries, vanilla, almonds and currants. Good one!

Intressant Ale. De sura körsbären får den att påminna om en lambic. Tyvärr tycker jag att "surheten" tar överhanden och man missar den mörka alen.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 375ml corked bottle, poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark brown with non existent head, just a few bubbles that quickly dissipated. Aroma of plums, table grapes, overripe apples, cherries and a noticeable oak wood character. Taste is light sweet and bitter, significant sourness. Palate is full bodied with a slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation. I rarely like sour beers, but this is an exception, excellent for the style. The striking sourness is well paired with the high ABV, also the oak wood notes really work well with the flavours. One of the few sour beers I would consider revisiting, a shame that it is so expensive at least here in Sweden.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
After no pop when the cork was removed, the beer pours a murky reddish-brown color with a minimal off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of tart fruit, malt and oak. Full-bodied, somewhat flat and syrupy with flavors of sour cherries, vinous oak and subtle buttery bourbon. The finish is oaky with a black cherry aftertaste. Above average, but would have been stellar if it wasn’t so flat.
