500 ml bottle. Reddish amber with off white head. Aroma at first with massive cranberry, after a while it subdues a bit and sweet and sour notes becomes more present. Taste is very well balanced between sour and sweet notes, lots of cranberry juice. Very nice beer KennethArd (655) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
Sour fruity aroma. Red with large cloudy head. Medium sourness from the cranberry. Pomelo and grapefruit. But also some malty sweetness. Light to medium body. Sticky in the texture but also a bit creamy. The carbonation is a little too flat. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Hazy, murky red-orange-brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of cranberry and dirt. The flavor has some strong cranberry notes as well as some smoke, oak and dirt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. brnandersen (4344) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2013
Well, ratings for this beer are very diverse, so I was curious how my taste buds would respond. 50 cl. bottle poured in to a flute. Hazy, dark amber with a golden hue. Small, off-white head. Fruity, tart aroma with red berries, citrus, leather, smoke, caramel and chocolate malts. Taste is light sour with the malts lurking behind. Medium body with an oily feel and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and tart with cranberries, wood and fruits - would probably work excellent with game as a food paring.
It´s messy, not complex - I still really like this beer even though the sweet, smoky flavors do not quite match the tangy and fruity impression. Truly a bastard as the label claims. Inbreak (6707) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2013

[@ Öl och whiskymässan, Malmö] Grumlig orange kropp. Väldigt fruktig och syrlig aroma. Smaken bjöd på en enorm syrlighet och tranbärssaft. Killen som hällde upp ölen förklarade att de bryggt en kraftig stout och sen blandat den med tranbärsjuice?! probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, cool, tulip. Murky mahogany with a small tan head. Smoke, tangy fruitiness, some oak, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, toffee notes, a touch spicy, nice. Medium + body, soft effervescence. Smoke, fruits, brown sugar, light wood notes, fairly tangy, not great; off dry with gentle bitterness and a malty, tangy fruit finish. Not sure if it is infected or like this on purpose.
