Saeglopur (2381) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 30, 2016
500 ml bottle, bb June 2019, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!

Dark amber, hazy body, with a small, creamy, off-white head.

Aroma of barrel, ripe fruits, wine, sour berries, some barnyard, some sour apples.

Taste follows this, with more sour notes and subtle leathery notes.

Light, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.

Finishes sour, medium dry, vinous, moderate wooden, fruity, subtly sweet.



Tasty. Resembles a bit a Flemish red, with a great balance between barrel, vinous notes and ripe fruits. Alcohol is well hidden, drinks pretty smooth. Overall not among my favourite sour ales, but really enjoyable nonetheless.
