3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, Christian IV, Odense. Clear reddish brown, with a small creamy off-white head. Rich aroma of dark sugar, spice, malt and of course, that indescribeable, vinegar-like bret. Sweet flavour with acid balance. Pleasant malt background. Lovely beer, if slightly on the sweet side for my taste.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 25cl 5.2% bought in Belgium.
Red-brown and clear but very dark, with a small head.
The aroma is pretty interesting: burnt sugar, coffee, cardamom, curry, soy sauce, smell - it smells like a Chinese dish!
Bitter-sweet flavour with a liquorice, burnt sugar, apple syrup taste. Overal an interesting beer, but a bit too sweet for me.

The colour was deep reddish brown, with a creamy brownish head. There was a strong sour berry cinnamon spice aroma. The taste showed fruity berry and light malt, it was sour acidic, and there was a short light oak finish. This is a distinctive style with quite a lot of complexity, moderate body, and is quite refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The 750ML bottle poured a beautiful, clear, reddish amber beverage with a moderately sized frothy off-white head that was fully lasting, turning creamy as it matured and it left wonderful lacing on the glass. The aroma was pungent with sour and fruity aromas mingling to produce an almost brandy-like character. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a slightly watery texture. The flavor was quite tart and sour at the start. It does mellow quickly as it ages on the palate but still retains just a hint of sourness through the medium-long finish.

Earthy, the sour mixes well with the body of this beer. So easy to drink, finishes dry with a strong dark fruit prescense that balances it out so well. A great brew whos quality shines through.
