Vili (244) - FINLAND - NOV 18, 2015
25cl bottle. Clear, dark amber-brown pour with thin, light brown head. Aromas of ripe fruit, dry wood and cherries. Taste is dry, complex, fruity sweet but bubbly. Lively carbonation, fresh palate. Aftertaste is really short but fresh and sweet at the same time. Really good and balanced, nice beer.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Dark brown pour with a fizzy tan head that didn’t last long. Aroma is slightly fruity. Flavour is very sweet, sugary with raspberry and candied sugar notes. Wasn’t expecting the big blast of sweet, but it quickly fades into a tart bitter flavour on the end of the tongue. Really nice!

LLaurin (212) - Motala, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2015
A sour reddish beer with a impressive red / brown look and still clear taste even of fruit. Wine is very present in the palate and saving it from only being sour. Very different but still enjoyable.

baaj (29) - DENMARK - NOV 13, 2015
Dejlig kompleks frugtig duft. Fint beige skum. Sødlig/syrlig smag, igen lidt frugtagtig - den kunne jeg godt blive lidt forfalden til. Syrlig/sødlig eftersmag

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2015
Een zeer bittere smaak, komt waarschijnlijk door de looistoffen van de eiken vaten.

Stultus (32) - ESTONIA - NOV 3, 2015
Pours brownish red with a thin beige head with strong lacing. Aroma: sour, cherries vinegar. Taste is sweet and sour, almost wine-like, light carbonation. Definitely a very well crafted beer and a personal favourite.

Flaska från Belgoklubben. Mörkt brunröd med gulbrunt skum. Syrlig doft med vinbär och äppelkart. Sträv munkänsla. Sötsyrlig och frisk. Röda bär och syrligt äpple.
