50 cl bottle, batch #805. Deep mahogany / cherry colour in front of a light bulb, no head, no visible carbonation. Cherry aroma jumps right out of the bottle and hit my nose. Mouthfeel is on the dry side, flavour is packed with fermented red berries, and lasts for a long time. Sourness is not at the overwhelming end of the scale, it should be drinkable for most beer lovers out there i.m.o. tfredvik (1985) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2016 Clear deep brown body with a small beige head. Strong aroma of fermented red berries, caramel and funky yeast. Strong flavour that follows the aroma. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate sourness and a long-lasting light bitter finish. Mid-bodied with a close to flat carbonation (which I guess is due to the fact that I sampled a glass that had circulating our table for quite some time. Aaah, the magic of beer festivals!). alexsdad06 (10482) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2016

Vighals (4086) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2016
Mørk brun, mahogni klar med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter syrlige bær, noe trevirke, vanilje og noe kandis. Middels fylde. Skarp sursyrlig smak, bæreddik, vanilje og bærsødme. Trevirke og sur avslutning. darbeer75 (911) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Aroma: sour ale with strong undertone of acetone; Appearance: chocolatey brown that’s pretty flat on pour; not sure if it’s always like that or the age of the bottle; Taste: starts very tart/sour and ends with almost a stout taste. Odd. Palate: medium-heavy body with long, tart finish; Overall: okay; seems to follow trend of putting two different styles into one beer; not sure if I like this combo. Would not buy again.
