4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a small fluffy brown head. Wow, this smells amazing. Lots of tart cherry, vinegar, dark fruits, light oak, lemon, and a light spiciness as well. Earthy, vinegary tartness up front on the taste, slight citrus acidity, dark cherries, oak, nice toasty malt undertones, and slightly grassy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark cola brown with a minimal, fizzy head. Aroma of cherries, dark fruit, vinegar, and toasted oak. Mild oxidation in the aroma. Flavor is vinegar and strong sourness. Quite a bit acidity. Stomach is hurting half way through the glass. If your favorite flavor is "Sour" this beer is probably right up your alley. There is no nuance. Just sour. Nothing here really to justify the price tag or this beer’s existence.

2013 bottle poured into teku. Pours a brownish red with brown head. Smells of oak, fruit leather, and slight acid. Taste is quit sour but not too acidic. Nice oaky flavor with a slight fruity leather. Overall very good beer and worth the price tag

Lovely woody and buttery sour aroma. Sweet smooth aspects, but beautiful sourness. Woody, oaky. A great sour red, everything’s just right.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Visual: Pours dark cherry red with a smallish dissipating creamy head, thin ringed retention, micro bubbles, several steady streams.
Nose: sour cherry, barnyard, cinnamon, red wine. Complex. (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: extremely tart, off-dry
Mid-palate: (lvl-2)-sweetness, high tart, highly sour, (MAIN) sour cherries, red wine, red vinegar
Finish: oak, puckery, pukey berry w/ mild oak exhale
Summary: The intense sour tartness is very taxing on the palate. The first glass is tough to sip, moreso as it warms up. The fruit flavour is okay, but I’m not too fond of the pukey flavour that creeps up near the finish. I prefer the Duchess de Bourgogne; it’s much more palatable.

@Basunen: riktig trevlig doft. Tycks känn en hint av körsbär. Smaken är fantastisk sur men med en fin balans med bär. Riktigt härlig syrlighet
