_angst_ (4350) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2015
Draught @ Haket. Pours deep reddish brown with a small beige head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour and fruity with crispbread, caramel, cereal, lemon juice, lime juice, dark grapes, moist wood, moist soil and lemon peal. Taste is very tiny sweet, sour, slightly malty and tiny fruity. Mouthfeel is tiny round, slightly dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour with caramel, cereal, lemon juice, lime juice, moist wood, moist hay, lightly smoked sausage, minerals and lemon zest. Light suiting smoke but this is mostly dominated by lime juice. Solid sour brown nonetheless with decent crispbread malts and citric acidity.
