Danish: Hvert år laver vi en syrlig øl til Øllets Dag. I år i to versioner! Denne er med søde danske solbær og har ligget på egetræsfad i tre måneder. Det er en meget syrlig øl, hvor træet giver en masse tørhed. Forestil dig en meget, meget tør hvidvin blandet med syrligheden fra en spansk cider.

33cl, with handwritten label ’Grand Cru 2010 Oak-Aged Cassis’, no mention of ABV, retired exclusive Danish brew, with cassis, thx to thewolf!, complex sour fruit brew, fruity/sour and slightly woody, balanced, hazy, nearly no head, nice brew

bierkoning (13689) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2012
Bottle from TheWolf, thanks! Orange pinkish blonde, cloudy. Cassis and grapefruit in the aroma. Soft sour flavor with some fruity sweetness, cassis sweets, grapefruit, lemon, oak and kumquats. Lovely!

330. Thanks, René! Pours a cloudy sherbet-y orange with pinkish overtones. Great color, but no head or lace evident. Mild fruity nose, soft bitey berry acids mixed with a pulpy peach-like note. Definitely doesn’t have that dark pitted tree fruit intensity that you might associate with cassis, but that’s definitely not a bad thing, just a bit unexpected. Creamy medium body with very little carb. Tart peachy mid palate with that bitey berry-like acidity again. Mild smooth fruity finish. Very soft and approachable.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of apricot, vanilla, yellow raspberries, yogurt, and subtle barnyard. Flavor of apricot, yellow raspberries, peach, oak, some black currants, and lacto. Excellent!

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a small white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a lot of orange and apricot notes and a little bit of oak. The aroma doesn’t have much tartness to it and actually smells like a nice, juicy American pale ale. The flavor is a little different. I get some tart apricot and orange notes, as well as some biscuit malt and some oaked notes. I don’t get any of the cassis, but that doesn’t really affect the beer since the things that are present are very nice. Low carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Of the six Kolding sours sampled at the tasting, this was easily one of the best.

Hazy orange color, no head. Leathery, tart-fruity aroma. Medium-bodied. Tart fruity apple flavor, some cassis leaves in the flavor. Otherwise quite simple flavor. Nice sourness. Not too bad.
