jc1762 (1230) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Tap into a wineglass showing pitch black with a finger of very quickly dissipating latte colored foam. The nose is very red wine forward. Dark black forest fruits of plums, black berries, and bing cherries. the palate is lightly carbonated and highly tart with the same wine forward flavors showing up on the palate. Slightly tannic, could use a bit more carbonation.

KoNrRiI (1412) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A very dark brown color with virtually no head to speak of. Aroma is sour, fruits, molasses, vinegar, and a bit of wine. Taste is also sour, fruity, nutty, sour strawberries, some grapes, and a tad of oak. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long and very sour but nonetheless palatable and enjoyable. Overall the beer is good, I have never been a sucker for sour ales but this one is actually pleasant.
