Bottle: Filtered.
A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

SkillsFactory (368) - ITALY - DEC 13, 2015
Color mogano scuro con riflessi rubino e caramello, schiuma tra il beige e l'ocra di persistenza medio-bassa che crea un anello lungo il bordo del bicchiere. Aroma acetico e legnoso con note vinose ed oleose, leggerissima nota di polvere. Al palato sempre acetica, oleosa, vinosa ed astringente. Corpo leggero, ben carbonata, texture oleosa.

Shark_Pants (534) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2015
Deep ruby red with very small beige head. Aromas of apple cider vinegar, cherries, red wine, spices. The taste has a restrained apple cider vinegar sourness, balsamic, cherry, raisin. Outstanding tangy sour and sweet balance. No noticeable alcohol. Magnificently balanced beer from someone who normally detests exceedingly sour beers. .

One2remeber (235) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Draft Valley Tavern. Strong vinegar, pickle juice, sweaty socks, low nail polish. Dark, sweet fruit, raspberries. Low brown type malt. So so soft, elegantly smooth down the palate, not over the top mouth puckering astringent as nose would lead to assume. Lite candy sugar with a moderate tartness up front, turns to a pickle juice and light red ale (summit red ale) type sweetness, but of a co2 splash on back of throat makes the sourness disspear to a lingering taste of cheery flavored syrup. As it warms up has faint aroma of permanent marker (not off-putting). Very drinkable.

nazbion (196) - Tübingen, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2015
Pours cloudy brown with thin beige head. Acetic, wine, berries, earthy aroma, really nice. Taste is medium sour with some sweetness going on, reminds the tamarind fruit, oaky finish. Great beer, complex and balanced.

szymonskc (254) - Skórcz, POLAND - DEC 6, 2015
Aromat mocno winny, octowy, nuty kojarzące się z porto. Barwa brunatno-wiśniowa, lekko zmętnione. Piana beżowa, średniopęcherzykowa, niezbyt wysoka, bardzo szybko opadająca, ładnie zdobi szkło. W smaku mocna kwaśność, kojarząca się z winem. Dosyć intensywna ściągająca język cierpkość. Bardzo owocowe, wiśnie, porzeczki. Minimalna goryczka i spore wysycenie. Ciekawe, smaczne i niesamowicie pijalne piwo.

Hele Danmarks yndlings sour! Så fin og vinøs at det halve kunne være nok. Smager af godt håndværk, lol
