Flaske 0,33l spandert av Rune og delt under samling hos ham 6 Feb 14. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Betongskum med kniplingslacing. Aroma av surøl. Overraskelse! Smaken er tørr, syrlig frukt. Annerledes øl - men ikke helt i min smak.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Complicated and not altogether pleasant. Foggy and murky flat amber appearance with no head and vanilla yeasty aroma. Initial taste is medium-full sweet with a sour aftertaste with some citrus in there. Small sips required. Kudos for the attempt, but it didn’t seem to correlate with the hoppy description.
