Rune (13506) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2017
750ml bottle shared with Egil Børge, Leif, Odd and Finn. Clingy lacing from an off-white head. Dark red-brown body, hazy. Subdued tart and dry aroma of cherry and oak. Sweet and tart taste profile with impact of oak, cheese, dough and cherry skins. Prolonged ending, tart, dry and sweet. Okay, not my kind of Yuletide beer though. (Tasting session of Christmas beers, Tromsø 17.11.2017).

Stumbled across this beer that I didn't know I had a sticker on the back says bottled on Halloween 2012. Aroma is tart, dark ripe fruits a little malt. Average appearance.. flavor is a like aroma a little more interesting and complex hints of cocoa and Oak. Body is a touch thin. Very good finish and fairly easy drinking for a sour beer.
