11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a dark cranberry red with an average (1-2 finger) light brown fizzy head that fully diminished in a short time, leaving behind virtually no lacing at all. The aroma was quite compelling with some sweet malts and a tart Brett yeast, along with notes of dark fruit (black cherry, raspberry and cassis), candi sugar and a slight port wine presence. The taste was bold and flavorful with a malty sweet tartness and a good fruity note along with some candi sugar to start, then became nice and yeasty with a strong sour port presence towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a fruity sour wine taste fading ever so slowly. Mouthfeel was a about medium in body and dry in texture with an almost medium carbonation. Overall this brew creates a fruity sour explosion on the taste buds, which I personally love. It has tons and tons of flavor, a fantastic drinkability and possesses a low ABV. Damn it’s good...

Rødbrun klar med lavt beige skum. Røde bær, sur lukt mot eddik. Syrlig, sur smak med noe bærsødme. Liker dem hakket surere. Lite kullsyre

orange_3084 (82) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2014
Murky brown colour with filmy head. Sour upfront aroma that is reminiscent of olive bread. Thin body. Taste is sour with some apple-grape like tartness that lingers in your mouth to finish.

Koper bruine kleur, bruine kraag. Kersen, rood fruit. Smaak kersen, beetje hout. Licht zurig, heel verfrissend. Lekker.

Een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak, spijtig genoeg is het absoluut mijn ding niet

Cerveja frutada, de cor escura caramelada. Predominante o gosto de uva. Ótima para degustar em pequenas quantidades (enjoativa em grandes doses)

At the source. Coke colored, almost no head. Sour, woody, fruity, goes down fast but on the watery side.

Bought this on clearance for $1. Thinking it is pretty old. Poured dark like a Coke. Aroma is slightly boozy with some apple fruitiness. Mild flavor. It has a sharp bite on the tip of the tongue, followed by some apple flavors. Actually taste pretty good. Not sure what it would taste fresh, but not bad old.
