Bottle from 02-2015 thanks to a trade with mr angrypirate06. Pours with a hazy medium hued red body and a large and mostly retentive off white head with good lace. Aromas are musty and funky with a noticeable acidity and a lightly acetic nose. Under ripe plums, tannins, oak, black cherries and some bourbon. Flavors are medium tart, bright and clean acidity with vibrant fruity notes of cherries, plums and dates. Nice tartness, medium funky notes, oak, light esters. You can feel the warmth, but any sort of alcohol taste is well hidden. Medium bodied, tart, prickly carbonation. Nice to drink. I feel like I might be underrating it a little bit.

Bottle at WTWBA. Brown pour. Tart oak funk aroma. Taste is fantastic, oak, funk sour. Delicious. Beer5000 (6736) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2016
750 ml bottle opened a bit more than one year after “best before date”. Have sampled this a few times previously within the BFD, but IMO the storage have just made this beer even more fantastic. Slightly unclear reddish amber body with a stable, moderate sized, dense off-white head. Aroma is wonderful smooth and complex, acidic berries, fruit, barnyard, malt, wood, light caramel and some dry fruit. Flavor is like aroma, both smooth and complex with a wonderful balance between sweet, sour, fruit, wood and funk. Nice tart fruit, sweet malt, caramel, balanced bitterness and mild funk. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste with the same wonderful flavor. One of the best beers I have tasted regardless style.

Bottle. BBY date 02/15. Pours a lovely ruby brown. Small initial head followed by a rush of fine bubbles to form a nice medium cappuccino colored head. Nose is vinous and woody. Mouthfeel is light to medium and effervescent. Taste is an explosion of fruit flavors-- tart cherry, lemon, plum, apricot, followed by oak, caramel, and a lingering, slightly boozy sourness in the finish. An exceptional brew.
