2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl fliptop bb10/04/2014, partially sampled 10 days later. I also like the no-nonsense "archival" design of the Ricklinger labels... Pours an enticing red-tainted brown with lively, beigish head. Nose is bread crust and slightly sweaty feet. First sip makes it clear what previous raters (who probably also bought the past-bb date bottles at bierpost?) noticed: this one goes sour very easily. What survives beneath the near-vinegar acidity is a plethora of now disbanded pleasant notes: spicy hops and more darkbrown bread crust, indeed Sauerkraut/dairy sourness and a rather bitter finish. Yet very interesting as an involuntary sour. Like a drunken marching band whose the members cannot keep in the key of the agreed-upon tune because they are puking at separate corners in the street. (Giving this the benefit of the doubt for future, fresher occasions but stopped this particular tune in its tracks after 3 good sips. The stomache, unlike the mouth, is not a house party to which everyone drunken marching band is invited and everyone’s screaming "Slightly sour, still kinda good!".)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass light brownish, nice head. Sourish aroma. Starts fine malty, fruity like plum and raisins. Also quite sourish, a bit earthy. Sourish notes dont fit to other notes and make the beer not really drinkable. Unbalanced finish. Not good.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. It pours a slightly hazy, amber body and a dense, two-finger, light beige head. Sweetish malty aroma with a citrusy touch. Slightly acidic, lemony flavor too, malty backdrop. Some bitterness. Dry, medium bodied and pleasantly carbonated. A decent beer, but I’d like to taste it fresh from tap at the brewery some day. 110917
