Rune (12633) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2012
500ml bottle, courtesy of OleR. Shared with Finn at a tasting session. Brown-reddish body. Bubbles to the edges of the glass. Dry and tart nose with a touch of farmyard. Mid-tart fruits and berries in flavour, some lemon with oaky dryness. Dry, tart and sweet ending. Medium bodied. Cleansing and refreshing (Tromsø, 21.06.2012).

Bottle
Appearance - Clean bronze, messy lacing
Aroma - Blackberries, vinegar, wet grass
Taste - Bitter cherries, lemongrass, tart

This was a very light drinker - most sours are a lot more intense than this one. Still a good drink... I just wished it was with cranberries (I read wrong).

I was glad to get to try this. Thanks Chipalsa. Bottle pour. Body is plain brown with a miniscule head of big clear bubbles. Aroma is of tart berries, some acidic notes, and a touch of funkiness. Taste was pleasing. I got tons of berry/strawberry notes, a touch of tartness, and some tannic qualities. The aftertaste was surprisingly fruity (berries and bananas). Overall I enjoyed this one because the tartness is reserved compared to some of the other sours I’ve had.

Bottle:   Dirty amber, very cloudy, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Unripened fruity/berry nose.   Tart on the tongue, unripened berry that is a bit non descript.   Slightly dry.   Seems like dried cranberries.   Not quite the traditional sour I thought, but still nice.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft, dry, semi-sweet pre ripened berries on the finish.   Its a bit like cranberries, but there is something else.   Decent tart fruity beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a slight ruby hue and an off white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of a tart tropical fruit note with backing sweet grains and red fruit. Flavor has a good amount of earthy tropical with a bit of yeast and backing sweet grains.

Reddish-brown color with a 2 finger off-white head that disappeared quickly. Sour cherries and barnyard funk were the most prevalent aromas I picked up. I also picked up a slight biscuity note. The taste is sour throughout and there is very little hop presence the sour mouthfeel is still there. Overall a great beer even though this is not my favorite style. Worth trying out if you can find this ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle, at the brewery. More or less clear, just a little haze. Amber in color and topped by a thin layer of off-white bubbles. Quite fruity aroma, very smooth, with the crowberries quite evident. Smooth, tart and dry on the palate, with berries and some lemony sourness hints. Fruity, berryish finish. A refreshing beer that maybe was a bit young. 111015

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt, as well as some cherries, grapes and light funk. The flavor is a little bit more complex than the aroma. I get a lot of vinegar and acetone, as well as some leather and tobacco notes. There is also a little bit of cherry and grape notes, but they are hidden in the background. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Smells of a flemish ale. More vinegary than tart. Lots of berry flavor...in particular taste big strawberry notes.
