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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a copperish brown color with a medium beige head that fades quickly. The aroma is very tart, with cherry, sour apple, oak, caramel, and some vanilla. Extremely sour taste, and is quite similar to the nose. Cherry, apple, oak, a healthy amount of vinegar. Some earthiness and mild vanilla rounds this out. The sourness threatens to overwhelm the flavors, which in my opinion is a good thing. Heavy and lingering sour cherry aftertaste. This is medium in body, with a sticky, acidic texture, and carbonation bordering on flat. One of the most sour beers that I’ve ever had, if you’re a fan of this style, this is a must try.

Bottle cellared since 2012. Pours a deep reddish chestnut, beautiful overall, small beige head, dissipates to a ring with some lacing. Aroma is woody, definitely strong flanders red, oak tannin, dark sugars, lactic tartness, hints of cherry, leather. Flavor is medium tart, hints of residual sweetness, a bit of funk, loads of oak tannin, leather and lactose. Medium body, fairly low carbonation. Held up very well and doing a lot to redeem a style I more often than not don’t care much for.

Flaska från beergium. 2013 vintage. Mörk mahognyfärg som drar åt rött med lågt krämigt skum. Syrlig doft av dyrlig stenfrukt, laktosyra och fat. Rejäl syra men mjuk och rund, mycket fat med röda druvor, läder, fikon, nypon. Stor med djupa smaker och komplex smakbild. Riktigt gott.

0.75l bottle shared with Inbreak @ Mikkeller Bar. Looks really nice in the glass with a deep blood red clear body and a small light bubbly beige top thats leaving some light lacing down the sides of the glass. Lovely thick and intense aroma, lots of tart red berries, wood. Red wine and a mild red wine vinegar. Loads of wood, and the tart red berries with that red wine is lovely. It’s soft on the carbonation and light oily almost a bit sticky on the gliding mouthfeel. Lovely tart flavors with lots of acidic lime and lime zest. Red cowberries and some lingo berries. Really okay without being to mouthdrying. It has a zing to it with a soft vinegar flavor. Lots of good thing going on in this. Last beer of the Copenhagen trip 2013. 05.05.2013

Quite impressive brew. Feels all rounded superbly balanced maltiness, some toast level, caramel, dried fruits, ripe fruits, brett, some oak aspect, light acidic, bit vanilla. Light sweetness, light sourness, all the way balanced and enjoyable.
