Nel bicchiere si presenta di un rosso scuro ma con bei riflessi rubino. La schiuma, color nocciola, è abbastanza persistente. L’olfatto è tipico di una birra di questo stile: l’acetico subito su tutto. Poi ciliegia, legno. Soprattutto molto "vinosa". Il finale è amaro e ritorna l’acetico.

Rating from memory at Republic Bar in Mpls. Taste is sweet and fruity but is balanced nicely with some good sourness. Berry and cherry notes. Love sour ales and this was a good one.

25cl bottle at Alquitara. Rubi colour with a good formation of an off-white head with a good duration. Aroma is fruity, with apple notes, sourish. Flavour has apple notes with mild caraelish notes and candy sugar and wood. The final is fruity and dry. Carbonation and body are medium.

Fruit, especially cherry in the aroma. Flavors starts sweet and finishes sour, with some vanilla and cherry cough medicine flavors. Not my favorite style, but this is pretty good.

mile (3787) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, vinous and sweetish aroma, fruitiness - dark fruits, some sourness and light vanilla/oak. Body is medium, vinous and sweetish flavor, fruitiness - dark fruits, some sourness. Finish is average, vinous and lightly sweetish, dark fruits and some vinegar sourness, faint oak. Really nice sour ale although quite sweet. Sourness goes well along the body and sweetness.

Clear red brown, nice beige head. Funky dusty aroma. Taste is medium sour and sweet, little dust. Refreshing, easy to drink. Good mouth feel and carbonation.

11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel malts, some dark fruits, sweet tarts, and a little bit of oak and hops. Flavor the same, and it’s much better than I remembered. Average texture. A decent beer of the style.
