midovark (3094) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 11, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2020 Bottle at home. Pours deep burgundy with a quickly disappearing head. Nose is lightly acetic sourness, fruity tartness, light nuts and sweet booze in a nice harmony. Taste is tart fruity upfront, cherries appear first, then come a sharp, lightly acetic sourness, some faint nuts again and in the finish a warming boozy touch also appears to round out sourness a bit. Closes with a long lasting sour finish, this time it’s the cherries again, has medium body and soft carbonation. The aroma is truly lovely here, but in the taste I would’ve liked more of that boozy whisky touch cause without it it was borderline too sour for me. A tasty and fun brew nevertheless. zvsn (5058) - ISRAEL - JUL 18, 2020

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2020 Bottle from Alko. Pours dark violet brown. Lots of hazelnut, reminds me of some candy, sour and red berries, nutty. Red berries, more hazelnut, a hint of the maltyness common in scotch ales, just a touch of boozyness. Quite sour with medium body and a strange, boozy or whiskey-like mouthfeel, especially at the end. Certainly an odd one this one.
