2013-11-15. Dark brown body with a small beige head. 3++ Aroma is vaguely vinous, lightly earthy and lightly fruity. 7+ Flavour is interesting, lightly tangy, mild fruit over moderate malt. Pleasant mild oaky undertones, like mild new oak. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation 3+ Quite subtle but has some lovely nuance to it. Nice stuff! Bottle, 2011 vintage, shared by JoeMcPhee

Thanks to fiulijn for this gem. Deep brown pour with a thin white head. The nose is of earthy oak and a touch of soft tartness. Nice and softly lactic with a bit of herbal and earthy character. The beer has a nice chewy earthiness and a touch of oaky woodiness. Has a bit of cedar and some interesting resinous character. Vineous finish with a lot of complexity. Lovely brew.

Sparf (211) - Östersund, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2013
Syrligt parfymaktig arom. Även jästtoner och aning stall men med en mustig jordighet. Mörkt brun och disig brygd med lätt rödaktiga reflexer. Smaken har en kärv bitterhet kombinerat med en välrostad syra. Fattoner och en lite vinös avrundning. Tämligen tunn kropp och en champagneartad kolsyra. Torr och relativt kort eftersmak. På det hela taget en unik öl!

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a muddy brown with a big white head. First whiff is soapy, well, all of them are. Quite strange but it does not deter me from digging further. Nice oaky/fruity flavors, feeling winey almost. Some spices and flowers also make an appearance, might be what I was associating with soap. Enjoyable, I should re-rate it sometime in the future.

extra @ cascade + upright tasting sessions. big gush. unclear brown with a frothy abnormal off-white had, good retention and lacing. very soapy and perfumy, bretty, caramel, pepper, spices, faint belgiumness and wineyness. over-bubbly, light body, short tannic and grassy-herbal-spicy finish. very unique and enjoyable but not without flaws..

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by czar, thanks! Small gusher. Brown with a huge off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of wood at first followed by red wine, red fruits, light caramel/chocolate notes and light vinegar. Taste is slightly sweet and sour with oak, red fruits, light winey notes and light caramel/chocolate again. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Ok Sour brown. Well balanced. Nowhere near Rodenbach in termes of deepness, but still really interesting.
