The good bottles of this are nicely semisweet with hints of cherry and a mild tartness that reminds of Rodenbach Classic, the less good bottles are really vinegar heavy and the fruit doesn’t come through as well because of the high acidity. I am rating this tilted towards the good bottles, which I’ve mostly been lucky enough to experience.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 75cl, at Gaasa. A clear, reddish brwon beer topped by a small, light beige head. Chocolate, some vanilla, dried fruits, notes of dark berries and some raisins on the nose. The flavor has a distinct oak touch to support the chocolate and vanilla known from the aroma. It’s rather tart, with some dried fruits sweetness, berries and a lemony hint showing up towards the very end. Full body and a nice carbonation. Perhaps a bit much on the oak side, but it’s a damn solid beer anyway. 140501

Sour plum, with some raisin and apple. Finishes very tart. Wine barrel definitely evident. Pours reddish brown without much head or lacing. Good stuff. Tap at Meridian Pint.

Bomber. Smooth fruity nose, with sour cherries and some acidity floating up. Dark brown color with reddish highlights. Very tart initial, with cherries, grapes, and sour apples / light acidity in mid palate / finishes with more fruit and a long stretch of acidic tingling -- felt on the tongue, in the throat, and in the stomach. Thin body with mild astringency. Very tasty. Similar in character to Rodenbach.

Holy crap what a great beer. Aroma was sour. Yes, sour. Vinegar, red grape and notes of funk. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a red outline and a one finger off white head. Taste was stunning. No other word for it. So sour it took some time in between sips to recover. Strong sour cherry and vinegar bash the taste buds and never let go. Long strong sour finish. Medium carbonation. Will buy another bottle regardless of the 45 minute drive it took to get there
