4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from cavemanlawyer, thanks James! 2011 Vintage. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with thin, frothy, slightly creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma has a nice sourness up front with a bit of a citric and woody note followed by some bretty funk, tart cherries with just a slight sweetness, some acidity, and a bit of a vinous note. Flavor is similar. Clean, lactic sourness up front with some vinous and citric elements, wood, and funky brett. Cherries grow towards the end with a nice tartness and just a slight sweet note. Finishes clean, fruity, tart, somewhat funky, and dry before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a soft, somewhat lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really complex and enjoyable sour. Dry and clean with a nice fruity tartness, bretty funk, pleasant cherry note, and vinous wood presence. Delicious beer.

On trap at brewery. Pours a lightly hazy amber red. Smells strongly of site cherries and lemon. Tastes sour of cherries with a hint of wood. Nice and tart, though not terribly complex.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Upright a few weeks ago - from notes. Pours murky burnt copper with no head. Aroma: hella sexy. Cherry, oak, tart, funk; cheese and poop in all the good ways. Taste: moderately sweet, really well-balanced tartness; cherry, funk, and a tiny bit of sweetened cereal in the end. Light body, texture is a bit thin. Overall: my favorite of the day so far. This alone is enough of a reason to stop in for a visit.

2010. Pinkish, cloudy orange pour yields almost zero head or lace. Oranges & grapefruit on the nose, yeasty/Bretty. Both bleed over onto the palate, pretty light and delicately balanced. Low carb. Really nice.

Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours murky pinkish orange amber with small white head. Clear aroma of flowers and yeast with fruity and vinous notes. Sour, vinous flavour, with notes of flowers and hops. Lingering, sour aftertaste. Disturbing. Could be better, perhaps?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an unclear, orange colored body and a small, dense, off-white head. It’s quite funky on the nose, with fruityness, and a malty hint. Vinous and with some berries. The flavor is fruity and funky, with some berries and orangepeel. Full-bodied, dry and with a pleasant level of carbonation. Lasting yeasty and berryish finish. Quite pleasant and tasteful this one, but nothing special. 131122
