4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml acquired via trade from goldtwins. My only 2008 bottle. Pours a murky dark brown, obvious rusty red notes with very small offwhite head that dies to a near nonexistant head, minimal lacing. Aromas are sour cherries, a bit of tartness of the bat, some sweet raisiny dark malts, but sour takes the front seat. Dark fruits, faint brown sugar. Initial is sour cherries, oaky dryness with faint vanilla, light dark fruits that preach tartness over sweetness. Very nice darker sour, flanders style that is subtle yet superbly tart. Alcohol well hidden as a touch of light funk, tart, oaky underlying meld almost perfectly. Decent carbonation, perfect body allow flavor and palate stickability to meld. Dark fruit sweetness and slight darker mellow malt sweetness incorporate into the back of the body. This is a very nice brew, finish leaves a tart and oaky lasting finish.

Pours brown with a huge cherry aroma. Taste is strong sour cherry and tart finish. I’m not a big sour liver but this is actually pretty good.

Mmm, smaken var otroligt intensiv, på gränsen till för mycket om man frågar mig. Smaken i sig bar kraftigt syrliga toner med mycket körsbär och syra. Kroppen var okej men balansen kunde jag inte känna av.
