UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Barwa ciemno rubinowa z ladnie krazkujaca piana. Aromat winny owocowy. W smaku winne, owocowe, musujace, kwaskowe, delikatne. Przyjemnie sie pije ale jak dla mnie to idzie w strone wina musujacego.

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.

Smells like young red wine mixed cleaning agent. Nice sour-sweet taste, with hints of cinammon, berries, brown sugar. Very much reminds me of that one faro I drank some time ago. Slick medium body, fizzy carbonation. This isn’t going to be to everyone’s liking, but I enjoyed it once I looked past the peculiar aroma.

@ Agards väg 6/7-15. Bottle from Khioskh, Copenhagen. Very fruity with cherries, vinegar (aroma) and some brett, also acidic and sweet (a bit too sweet). Body is medium, the finish is sweet and fruity.

Brown ruby-tinged beer, small tan head. Nose is acidity, vinuos notes, yeast, dark fruits. Flavor is balsamic vinegar, dark fruits, some bready sweetness. Acidic and vinous finish. A bit too much vinegar for me, although the sweetness balances that out somewhat.

WillemsUrenkel (1172) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
0,25 l bottle, bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. A darkest but bright red brown in the glass. Nearly no head. Malty fruity with a lot of bisquit and cherry liqueur on the nose. Taste starts with sweet cherry, then followed by vanilla and pale malty influences, also sourness but always with a present sweet stage. Some alcoholic bisquit taste. Nice one.

LLaurin (163) - 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.

The aroma nearly scared me off. As others have mentioned, balsamic vinegar to the max! There is also a good measure of acetone and acetaldehyde. Once my nose got over the initial shock, additional notes began to emerge: Various tart fruits, and a backbone of saddle leather. This sits in the glass with a reddish brandy-like color and a thin, articulate head that will not let go. Taste is sour and tart, and pretty sweet. Mostly cherries, but some sour apples and even plum. The finish is somewhat discordant with the rest of the beer as it swoops in from above; somehow the finish is pretty dry and it drains your mouth of all flavors but the sour very quickly. Fleeting metallic hints.
