4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Cherry on the nose along with oaky notes and sourness. The taste is sour with sweet malt in the background, cherries and wood. Sharp as a razor but very balanced, refreshing and very unique.

Pours clear brown with a large offwhite head mostly lasting with some lacing. Dipped the nose and summer was all over, lots of flower and cherries packed in a malty caramell sour mess. A sip on it revealed flavor of coffee and sweet berries. Medium body with rather high carbonation. An excellent brew.

Fantastic beer. Sour and refreshing. Not syrup-y or overly sweet. It is the hallmark of its style.

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Dark, but clear red/light brown body. Small fuzzy head which settles quickly. Sour aroma of wood, red berries, dark vinegar, fruits and bread. Taste is not too sour, actually pretty gentle. Sharp and fizzy at first, some malty sweetness in there too, slightly sour finish.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin egg white head, that clears fast. Wonderful sour aroma. Complex medium sour flavor. Difficult for me to describe, but this is an astounding beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
sweet feathery jesus this is sour. The sticky sour aftertaste gets more and more unpleasant. Aroma of cheap wine/vinegar. Almost non-existent palate. I couldn’t finish it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Reddish-brown beer with a slight haze. Aroma is slightly sharp, with hints of fruit. Taste is similar with strong suggestions of cherry and raspberry. Very tart taste. Do not taste hops but there are a lot of flavour sensations in this beer that I would be challenged to describe in words.
