BlazerT (936) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle. Snifter. Deep brown with small, light brown head Medicore head retention and lacing. Aroma is really complex at first some vinegar and acetic notes, well hidden by tart berries along with some caramel. In the end perfect winey notes broken by oaky character. Taste is moderatly sour with nice malty sweetness in the end, also a touch of bitterness. Medium body, oily and creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is tart and astringent. In overall very interesting and complex wild ale. The sour notes are well balanced by caramel malty profil. Definetely worth trying.
