COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.
8.5% alc. 20 ibu. Serve at 8-12C

Reddish brown body, off white head, soapy lacing. Wonderful tart aroma, with a hint of red wine, a bit of an earthy funk. Taste is nicely sour, again with a touch of dirt, oakiness, vinous of course, some fruity sweetness, and you can taste the red wine. Sticky palate. Overall a pretty fantastic flemish-style red. Admittedly this is one of my favourite styles, but I am sometimes disappointed with lesser efforts in this style. This one did not disappoint.

SlackerMads (3161) - DENMARK - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle batch 469. In b 4 69. Pours unclear chestnut brown with a tiny off white head. Sour nose with wood, sour fruit, light solvents/nail polish. Flavour is more mild that the nose suggests, has some ash, wood, bark, light sour berries, minerals, lemon, light sour dough or dark rye bread. Medium body, pretty well rounded with mild sweetness, prickling carbonation and mild sourness. Easy going.

Samuel214 (763) - SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2015
Flaska frn SB. Mrkbrun-svart frg, ser ungefr ut som coca cola. Inget skum. Frisk och syrlig doft av h men ven en gnutta smrkola. Knappt ngon kolsyra verhuvudtaget. Kraftig och frisk syrlig smak till att brja med. Den lgger sig en aning och gr ver till lite mer porterkaraktr med lite rkiga kaffetoner, om n bara ngon sekund.
