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.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, - SEP 8, 2012
Clear medium brown red with a thin light lacing, somewhat lasting white head. Smells of vinegar, sour, woody and berry. Flat carbonation in a medium oily body slightly prickly. Slightly pickled with an overall acidic . Need some chips to go with this. I don’t really understand it. Sweet yet very sour.

alomtnez (350) - SPAIN - SEP 26, 2016
On tap. Frothy off-white head with medium retention. Clear reddish brown colour Aroma has sourness, roasted, some fruitiness (plum). A little Champagne-like. Taste has cider-like acidity, crispy, fruity sweetness. Acid-sour finish. Watery palate, very refreshing acidity

ordybill (1313) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. The appearance is a dark ruby red with a small white head. The aroma is heavy on cherry and has a sour take on the smell. The taste is very sour and has a very good cherry flavor. A really great beer.

Franckg (1179) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
Bouteille sans date. Robe rouge-brune très foncée et plutôt trouble sans col de mousse. Arômes de vinaigre balsamique, jus de fraise, mûre, sucre candi, cocktail de canneberges et cerises noires. En bouche, légère acidité acétique atténuée par un goût de baies sucrées. Surtout de le fraise et mûre encore, jus de cerise noire et sucre candi. L’équilibre des saveurs est impeccable. Finale presque vineuse, un peu comme un vin de cerise. Texture huileuse et corps moyen. Très belle bière.

markschiedon (586) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016
Drinking blind from a 33cl bottle. Bottle several years old. In the aroma sour, coffee, alcohol, cherries. The clear brown beer has a small brown head. In the taste balsamic vinegar. Low carbonated.

hauxe (413) - Butzbach, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle. Aroma is cherry, sour apple. Taste is up front sour, very sour, with notes of green apple and apple vinegar. Very nice palate: medium bodied, well carbonated but not aggressively so. It goes down easy and the rich smoothness helps balance the sharp, vinegary overtones. Finish is cherry sweet with a lingering tartness. An intriguing beer and all the more so for the intense sour sweet explosion of flavor without any added sugar or fruit. Amazing stuff. That said this is a niche beer for me, and not something I would seek out on a weekly basis.

Ritzn (455) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2016
Almost black with little beige head. Aroma is clove, lots of berries and a grassy ticklish note. Taste is very sweet and sour, reminds me of fizzy tablet. Lots of small bubbles. Very nice.

OnTheTrail (353) - Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Pours dark brown, substantial light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, plums, raisins, figs, cola, cocoa. A Tangiers that might be vinegar. Taste is sour cherry, plum, toffee, quite tart finish with hints of cocoa and cola. Medium mouthfeel.

Yum raspberr, cherry, port. Sour and tart can imagine it being perfect for game. Very impressed.

Pyobon (1296) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2016
(Bottle) Pours a rather murky dark brown with a thin beige head - not very attractive! Aroma is fruit, funk and vinegar - odd, interesting and slightly challenging. Great palate - smooth, plenty of body and lovely velvety carbonation. Taste is assertive, unusual and very nice. There’s an intense fruitiness - raspberries and berries - and pleasant tartness. There’s also some initial funkiness. A long tart, fruity complex finish. A very impressive beer.

Tjah ... farven er flot. Men derudover er aromaen og smagen som en mellemting mellem en våd hund og en fugtig kælder. Det er meningen at den skal smage således, hvilket gør det vanskeligt at vurdere den. Skal jeg vurdere den ud fra dens egne præmisser eller ud fra hvordan jeg mener en øl skal smage? Jeg vurderer den ud fra egne præmisser, så deraf resultatet.
