Thanks to VanJamer @ BA for this bottle! Pours a deep red with a pinkish rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is a bit weird with a slight "smoky" presence that is disturbing to me along with slight musty basement, oxidation and fruits (cassis). It gets better as it warms, though, with more cassis shining through. Taste is moderately acid and equally weird/awkward. For the first few sips I get tomato juice... Unsettling. After that, red fruits, jam and oak. Body and carbonation were average and mouthfeel is definitely vinous. Overall it got better as we went down the bottle but it was so weird that I might not be tempted to try again. czar (9094) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015

Luktar som koncentrerad svart vinbärssaft.
Tydlig suröls karaktär med smak av svarta vinbär. Inte illa alls.

Another top contender from Friday’s tasting. Didn’t know about this brewery until then, but this was fantastic. Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2015

(750ml bottle, 2014 vintage, BB 2016-03-12, #59/252) Pours a clear ruby body with a small pinkish head. Aroma of blackberries, yogurt, and horse blanket. Flavor of blackberries, citrus, brett, and wood with a dry finish. Fredd_an (250) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
Roséfärgat huve med knepig gul ton ändå häftigt. Små bubblor ligger lent över vätskan. Trevlig Svartvinbärsdoft! Vilken syra! Torrt! Fantastisk Svartvinbärs smak! Äkta Svartvinbär känner man. Inget AI. Lätt i kropp. Man känner alla delar av vinbäret, skalen & bladen. Hela kalaset.

Bottle. Pours dark red with a pink head. Aroma of malt, sour grapes, black currant and cellar notes. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some sour berries, black currant, some funk, cat pea and lemon. Medium body, average carbonation. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Dark ruby red body, unclear, and with a pink, finger-thick head. The aroma is quite cherry-ish at first, with a nice earthy blackcurrant showing up after a few seconds. Some peppery hints and a lemony, funky touch. The flavor has loads of blackcurrant, some pepper notes, lemon and a leathery hint. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Lovely lasting finish. Really pleasant this one, even though I don’t care too much for blackcurrant. 150524
