4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is from the first batch, one of those 900 bottles you can read about in the description. Aged for years.Thank you Shuichi! Pours red, not really much carbonation there. Aroma of cherries, cranberries. Nicely fruity and light sourness. Taste is full of flavours, sour, some vinegar, strawberries, cherries. Silent but deadly, fully satisfying. No sharp edges but I guess that comes from the age. Aftertaste is dry, initial sweetness is still there but tannins are doing their work. I love that silent aggressive balance that this beer has.

Bottle. Pours hazy red brown with quickly fading beige head. Aroma is light sour fruity with cherries and raspberry yet malty with some caramel notes. Taste is complex and has winey character with cherry, raspberry and malty, caramel and slightly dried fruity notes to the dry end of this fantastic beer. Also tasted on tap at Søernes.

750 ml bottle poured at Eugene’s farewell tasting. Thanks! Very fun try. Reddish orange pour with no head. Lighter cherry aroma. Flavor is a larger cherry pie like character, with a smooth, wonderfully tart and sweet complimented finish. Memorable, and excellent on all counts. Loved it.

(Bottle) Red colour with foamy pinkish white head. Fruity, slightly sour nose with cherries, raspberries, red fruit, hints of oak wood and balsamic vinegar. Fruity, tart taste with notes of raspberries, cherries, cranberries, oak wood, balsamic vinegar and a dry and tart finish. Medium body, mainly dry. Not quite as deep and complex as the Grand Cru, but more balanced and really tasty and enjoyable. Excellent beer.

Medium body, surprisingly high carbo. This is world class.
