2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear, dark ruby with a very, very tall and pillowy head. Sweet vinegar or red wine aroma. Strong sour flavoring of bitter green apples. Mouthfeel is watery. Reminds me more of a very strongly flavored hard cider than beer. I can understand people who might like it, but it’s hard to get into the style.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Poured a deep red. Aroma of sourness and berries. Taste was a complex interplay of berries and oak balanced with mild sourness. Ultimately it finished with refreshing sweetness. Strong body.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep medium brown, with a dense beige head that leaves tremendous lacing. The aroma is pleasant but muted, with a faint, musty/herbal hop character contrasted by a light, fruity combination of berries and citrus. The flavor is more vibrant, with a bright and fruity combination of mixed berries and sour cherries that is not overly sweet, especially when cut by a kind of aged vinegar character. The fine, soft carbonation elevates rather than distract from the sweet/tart flavor. Overall, the sweet and only gently sour profile of this beer makes it quite drinkable but still flavorful.

6/9/14. 750ml. Pours reddish amber with a big beautiful viscous frothy head. Somewhat funky sour nose with a hint of wood. Nice complex sour. Balsamic vinegar, raisins, and cherries.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark rusty reddish color with a thick foamy head. Smells of tart cherries, apples, and fermented grapes. First sip is mellow with sours notes that are subdued and quiet, not “In your face.” Cherries, green apples, raisins, maybe a tad of brown sugar, all combining in flavor. Creamy mouthfeel, but slightly under carbonated. Considerably more sweeter than sour, the brew finishes well with a little stronger bitterness. Very Good.

I have had this several times before rating it.. Dark reddish coloured with a huge head. Lumps of yeast floating in the beer - just like an old homebrew! Very thick mouthfeel, almost like a good port or sherry.
A fantastic blend of sourness and a nearly cloying sweetness. Sharp, sour and mouthwatering aftertaste. Too bad it is so damned expensive in DK!

A lot of carbonation. looked like half flat coke being poured. I couldn't pick out a whole lot out of the sourness. I think i need more of this.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brownish color, with a nice head and good lacing. Sour aroma, very wine-like. Looks and tastes like a red wine. Vinegary, tart flavor. Can't really detect any hops here. Good, interesting, but not my favorite style.
