75 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a hazy copper color with a thin head which dies, color is nice though. Aroma is funky and acidic with lots of unripe gooseberries, green apples, lemon, cherries, red currants, oak, hints of barnyard and even some interesting cognac-like notes. Flavour is really tart and sour with lots of lemon, unripe gooseberries, green apples, cherries, red currants, funky barnyard, cheese and oak. Really dry, no sweetness at all. Lovely medium to fullbodied mouthfeel. Carbonation is soft. Very similar to a gueze or fruit lambic - in fact it is drinkable as an 5% gueze or fruit lambic. Dangerous, utterly tasty brew actually. One of the best beers I’ve ever had. Only thing which isn’t perfect is the appearance in my opinion, but I can live with that... This is why beer is so fun. A masterpiece! Probably in my top-5 or so of all time. vuilleumierd (1) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2012 does not count

- cloudy red-brown colour with a little beige foam; vinous nose, very sourish and vinegar-like, prune and alcohol are noticeable too; very moderate carbonation, oily and quite sticky, full malt body, very sour yet very drinkable; long sourish finish with robust and long lasting notes of red fruits - what a beer!
Bottle. Nice funky lambic-y aroma. Initially this is fruity tartness, but there is an unexpected depth of flavor. Notes of raisins, fruit, vanilla. A very pleasant finish. Abv is hidden yet warms you to the core. Amazing. beerlady (556) - lucerne, SWITZERLAND - APR 30, 2009

Poured a clear amber red with a slight beige head. Aroma of a flanders red, tart, with some wood, fruit, and light spice. Taste is also tart, some dark fruit, grape/wine, light alcohol, mild malt. Finish is also tart and fruity. Very nice beer. Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - NOV 29, 2009

Dome. Hazy deep red with no head at all. The aroma is fruity, woody, leathery, vinous. Sour, lemony, fruity with a damn’ drying effect. No traces of that ABV. Light bodied, thin almost flat with a little astringent woody bitter end. Outstanding beer. Waiting for the Grand Cru barrels...
Aged 750 from State Line. Pours turbid ruby copper with a lot of carbonation and a fairly big and clinyg head for a beer this big, although the head goes away and stays away as it warms. Aroma of malt, sour mashy cherry, caramel oaky earthy notes, and spicy yeasty funk. Tastes lively and very carbonated with a tart cherry taste, with some malty caramel, oaky, fruity, and cobwebby estery notes as it warms.Very complex, with an evolution toward brown sugary sweetness and more fruity cherry berry red wine grapey notes late, plus tinges of oak, spice, and old aley dank basement. These vintage ADSBC beers are expensive, but they never let me down, and as such I consider them worth every penny. bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
