3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle vintage 2008 @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 22.03.2011
Aroma is rather strong and stale with oaky notes and sour cherries. Feels like a gym with air conditioning broken. Flavour is somewhat refreshing with oaky notes, sour cherries. The sweetness almost ruins the show.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2009 Vintage. Pours amber with a firm 2 finger tan head. Cherry, musty cellar, and vinegar sourness in the aroma. Pleasingly tart, very drinkable sour lactic with a nice creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I need to get another few bottles and hold it longer I think it might get even better.

Sampled at the First Inaugural Raleigh Rare and Vintage Beer Festival. Claimed as the only keg of 2008 vintage in the US. Murky amber pour with good khaki head. Good tartness on the aroma. And the flavor has a lingering cherry sweettarts quality. Slightly acidic. Very pleasant easy drinking sour, that wasnt fake.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2007 bottle from Utobeer. It pours murky brown, with a quickly dissipating beige head. The nose is malt vinegar, soft stewed fruits - strawberry, plum, cherry and wood. The taste is tangy cherry, strawberry, raspberry, wood and some malt vinegar, with a tangy finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Very drinkable and well balanced, not nearly as much malt vinegar as the Grand Cru.
