Sweet and fresh beer with a fruity character, also I’d swear they added a bit of Fristi to the flavours.

citrus, ginger, REALLY sweet flavor, lot of head. Almost tastes like a dessert wine and can probably be served with a dessert course.

olsonerr (37) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Sweet and sour aroma with noticeable wild yeast character. Light body made more refreshing by the carbonation, and a great sweetness throughout with the puckering tart on the finish. Best of the style.

BeerBowler (36) - DENMARK - NOV 29, 2010
Highly recommendable. Has a bit of a white wine character and esteurs resemble somewhat of a mix between brettanomyces, vinegar and malt. Everything well balanced in a superbly brewed beer.

AnyJoe (36) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2011
.25L bottle Wet oaky aroma like the one you would expect from a cellar, also hints of cherry. The taste is like currant and other sour berries. It has a fresh short bitterness similar to sour grapes.

Belle apparence mais un odeur d’éthanol ressort. Au fur et a mesure de la dégustation, elle gagne en intérêt.

Smells like vinegar, tastes a lot like a top notch cider, and really quite good. I love this style, and this is a nice example.

Whoa, pretty complex stuff. Bottle, poured a deep red, just about maroon, clear. Light tan head, little lace. Ok, where to start. Aroma is almost wine like. Taste is vinegary, though multiple fruits seem present. I’m talking about grapes, prunes, raisens, and apples. I can invision all these things when I take a sip. Lightly sweetend finish. Not a bad brew, evern for someone who enjoys the more bitter beers.
