Foffern (1803) - Bod, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark nut brown colour with a small khaki head. Pretty carbonated. Aromas of sour berries, red currant, leather, heather and forest floor. Sour flavour of bitter berries, goose berries, plums and apple cider vinegar. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a heavy berry bitterness. A very sour ale, but is balanced in a way. I feel I need some food to tame this beer.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a hazy, deep maroon appearance with a bubbly brown head that doesnt have much retention. Tangy acetic, dark berry, dark chocolate, oaky aroma. Sprizy, tangy, quite acetic, woody, light vanilla, big blackberry/raspberry, plum, fig flavor with bubbly carbonation and a moderate amount of acid on the finish. Not super smooth but not horrible either.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2013
From bottle. Poured redbrown with a large white head that quickly disappeared. Aromas of caramel, malts and yeast. High carbonation and a sour finish. An OK beer but not for everyone.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2013
33cl Bottle at home. Brown coloured beer with quite some carbonation and a medium but fast diminishing brown head. No head left after few seconds. Enjoyable refreshing sour sweet balanced slight wooden noted aroma. Medium to full almost dense palate. Finish is special, starts out slightly sour fruity but develops into a more tart sour ending, rather dry slightly woody. Atypical brew.

16.03.2013. Bottle. Cardinal, Stavanger. Brown colour with a thin layered head. Very sour at first with fruity flavours of red berries. Moderate body with almost no bitterness. Flavours of red currents (rips). Aftertaste is sour and leaves a dry mouth.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a murky and placid brown that looks very unappealing. The head is tall and velvety in texture, but is very thin in density which is apparent by how quickly it dissipates leaving no trace of a head after a minute.
Aroma: The aroma is restrained with hints of cherries, tartness, sweet cocoa, and a touch of caramel.
Taste: The sourness is moderate, but not very strong even for a beginner to sours like me. The sourness is similar to a stronger Shock Tart candy, with blue raspberry and cherry flavors. I taste a bit of cocoa lingering with the sourness.
Palate: Medium bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: Im new to sours so Im probably not judging this right, but I think this is a fair assessment of this since my score isnt far off from the others.

Fair acidity and dark fruits. Light body with a touch of sweetness underneath cherry and mild acidity. Could use some funk.

Holmen1 (5573) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2013
Fra flaske en hyggelig lrdagskveld p Cardinal: "noko syrleg" og vel s det, men ikke av det ekstreme slaget. Bringebr og mye rips. For slank maltkropp til bre syrligheten. Ingen bitterhet spore i det hele tatt. Smaken kom seg nr den ble litt lunken.
