Aroma of red wine. Taste of red wine. No carbonation. Do yourself a favour and avoid the unbalanced beer.

yngwie (12617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. A more or less flat one, dark brown in color, quite oily in the glass. Roasted malts, chocolate and some dried fruits in the aroma, with a tad more vinegar than I’d prefer. It’s oily and tart on the palate, with some sort of fine grained strange thing. Raisins, vinegar, chocolate, red wine and some roasted hints in the flavor. Lasting finish. Although there’s too much vinegar in the aroma, that’s not the case for the flavor, which is more on the red wine side. Pretty decent this one. 140228

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer with a small dark tan head. Palate is smooth and dry with light fine carbonation. Flemish red sourness with a touch of balsamic vinegar. Light bitterness. Finishes smooth. Tasty but not as good as the Oud Bruin.

A decent sour brown.
