Aroma of sourness/funkiness, some dark fruits, oak and light notes of vanilla, some notes of caramel and light sweetness from the malts. An incredible balance of the sour and oak and dark fruits/malts. Average texture. A great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
37,5cl bottle from Erzbierschof. A classic among Swiss craft beers, and well earned at that. Its sourness is a challenge to the newcomer, but it is not out of bounds and actually well harmonized with everything else this beer has to offer. One of the best beers for a hot summer day. Better taste, buy worse nose than the 2013.

Tasted a few times. This was my first SBC ever. Amber color with white ring. Most recent tasting July 20, 2015. More fresh fruits than old sweet fruits than the 2013. Good sourness and good compexity, great how it’s made together.
