Pours a deep chestnut red with a foamy beige head. Aroma is old oak and red berries, with a sharp sour smell. It tastes of malt, sour fruits, herbs and like a forest after a storm, earthy and woody, but robustly rather than bitterly and is smooth but tingly on your tongue. A very enjoyable beer for the more discerning palate.

shaynsawchuk (676) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
330 mL bottle, gushes lightly. Pours a hazed reddish brown with a thick cap of white head that fades to a ring. Nose is deeply acetic, cocoa, leather, woods, toasted bread and dark fruits. Subtle oak, vanilla and light alcohol on the back end. Malty on the front end and surprisingly full, moderate acid on the finish and a slightly tannic back. Well balanced, rustic and tasty. Moderate body and high carbonation.

A nice combo of sweet and sour, chocolate and cherries. That typical kriek feeling to it but combined with a darker and bigger complexity in the background. Awesome! Need to discover more of this type. Kale aroma is present and beautiful.

smmaaren (360) - NORWAY - AUG 29, 2015
33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark ruby with a big beige head. Aromas of berries, vinegar and malts. Taste is of course sour and sweet. Medium carbonation. Sour ale is not my favourite but this one is good.

suurjuust (1882) - ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2015
Brown ruby-tinged beer, small tan head. Nose is acidity, vinuos notes, yeast, dark fruits. Flavor is balsamic vinegar, dark fruits, some bready sweetness. Acidic and vinous finish. A bit too much vinegar for me, although the sweetness balances that out somewhat.

Uma bela cerveja. Surpreendente. Aroma agradável, mas não forte. Coloração bem escura, mas leve ao paladar. Bem diferente do habitual.

Uma cerveja diferente com muita personalidade. Era cético em relação ao estilo mas a surpresa do primeiro gole, mantém-se até o final.

Apple cider, vinegar, cherries, hints of oak. Slight sweet upfront with berries and fruit. Strong acidity, low bitterness, and tart finish with wood linger. Great example of style.
