4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from House of Trembling Madness bottle shop, York. Horse chestnut brown. Off white, thin, but lasting head. Aroma is cherry lips, muscovado sugar, a hint of dark chocolate. The yeast is there, in the background. Hint of licorice too. Taste is sour, and sweet, then bitter. Mighty fine, complex beer.

Fascinating beer. A deliberately crafted sour old ale seems impossibly rare in the world with Sour 3 Guy Off The Scale but this has nice caramel toffee maltiness and cherry/vinegar tartness in good harmony.

Draft at 3 Dorstige Herten. Dark pour. Aroma of sour oak, milk and red fruit. Taste is very rich, with lacto sour, oak, mild vanilla, red fruit tannine and a vinous finish. Very good.

The medium brown pour wears a healthy, small-bubbled froth. Pretty intense aroma, heavy on the oak like a Flanders Red, very fruity - slightly cooked, even dried cherries, apples and forward grapes pair up in this acidic ensemble. Not as tannic as I would have expected from that oak and sour character. Minute earthy notes. While the beer is on the dry side, there is a caramelly feel back there, bordering on roasty, nutty in any case and that contrasts with the intense almost prickly carbonation. Thin bodied, with a slightly clashing opposition between the roast and fairly high acidity - two traits that to me often feel like nemesis in beer. It’s very tasty, pretty original stuff, but there is not much malty pleasantness left from the base old beer and a lot of acidity from the souring agents and treatment. Can’t help but think that I’d rather drink a straightforward sour brew.

Sour complex Brown beer. Some vanilla in the aroma, very dry and quite sour. Cherries. Not my thing

Tap @ dorstige herten, medium sample. Hazy brown color, short head. Aroma is quite funky, leather, bit coffee, bit red fruit. Bit bitter, medium sour, some coffee and roast, leather. I dont really like the leathery notes in combination with a darker beer with coffee notes. Not my thing.

Bottle from a ferry to Åland. Sour smell with fruits, red berries, oak and some dried fruit. It smells similar to a flemish red. Tart smell, earth cellar, oak, dried fruit and some caramel. Nice, I like it.

Pours brownish red with the yeast and minimal head. Smells amazing, like wild berries. Taste good with a nice palate feel.
