Esta cerveza tiene un sabor acido pero a la vez dulce, una espuma media y abundante carbonatacion.

Small bottle. Classy design. Clear chestnut body with a small off-white head. Aroma has some soft Worcestershire sauce but the malty parts are not totally overshadowed. Complex. Taste has pleasant balsamic vinegar and strawberry tartness but again the malty parts add fullness and complexity. Once the tartness subdues the finish even starts to resemble non-sour brown beers. Very nice and complex beer.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Beetje zurig/azijnzurig, lange nasmaak. Ruikt lekker maar smaakt minder goed. Eikenhout is goed te proeven.

Butelka 0.25L.
Wygląd: Miedziane, klarowne. Obfita, kremowa piana, średnio i wielkopęcherzykowa. Szybko redukuje się do 2mm i lekko firankuje.
Aromat: Kwaśno słodki, owocowy i dziki. Najbardziej z owoców wyczuwalna brzoskwinia. Po zamieszaniu i lekkim ogrzaniu pojawia się intensywna farba emulsyjna. Trochę nut stajennych i octowych.
Odczucie: Wysycenie wysokie, ciało średnie, faktura musująca i lekko cierpka.
Smak: Słodkie i kwaśne zarazem. Lekko dzikie, końska derka, zbożowe, chlebowe i tostowe. Farba emulsyjna, owoce- rodzynki, figi i śliwka. Goryczki nie ma wcale.
Całość: Jak piłem poprzednim razem to nie czułem intensywnej farby emulsyjnej, która tutaj zdecydowanie przeszkadza. Do tego za słodkie.

Aroma is of some malt, and much vinegar. This put me off at first, but it grew on me. As I sipped, I also noticed an oak undertone. The taste - needless to say - very sour. The palate is invigorating. This sour beer is not for everyone... but I think it’s amazing.

matbli (133) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 5, 2015
Bottle 750ml, pours clear brown with small white head, that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma of grapes, white wine, honey, vinegar, raisins and some delicate barnyard. In taste high sourness followed by heavy sweetness. No bitterness at all. IMO sweetness is a to high, but still it?s easy drinkable. Very fruity but when drinking for a longer time it starts being very insipid. Good beer but more than 300ml is to much.

I get a bit of wet leather, some of the kind of funk that the sling on my Mauser Kar98K smells like, and other than that I got vinegar. Very smooth vinegar with a bit of sweetness to it, but vinegar nonetheless. Good beer for what it is.

Marduk (3964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 3, 2015
250ml bottle. Clear dark brown color. Small size, yellowish-beige-brown head, stays. Rotten apples, sour, woody, bit of oak in aroma. Sweet, plums, apples, touch of English vinegar, HP sauce in taste. Vinegary HP sauce in aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel. I almost like it, but then again that vinegar.

scirtes (148) - POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
25 cl bottle, bb 12.06.2016. Ruby coloured, hazy, with beige head that stands for a long time and nice lacing. Fizzy carbonation caused gushing. Aroma is acidic, fruity, somewhat winy. Very sweet, with winy and woody notes. Interesting, but definitely too sweet.

Is the devil's brew? Pours a dark brown. The initial taste is of vinegar, but with an aroma of old wine. The flavor morphs into tart cherry, no, black cherry. What bizarre chemistry is going on here? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
