ozzatoadisback (132) - ITALY - FEB 21, 2017
Dark brown with nice reddish hints. Low off-white head, scarse retention and lacing. Aroma is vinous with fruity (expecially cherries) notes. Tartness is there but it feels quite soft with sugar bringing attenuation. Taste has a very good balance of sweet and sour notes, with none standing out. Chocolate malts, sugar, tart fruit (again, cherries), slightly vinous notes. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, pleasantly prickly on the tongue while still very easy and smooth. Hides the abv wonderfully and even feels quite refreshing. Overall this may not be the most complex sour out there but its so well balanced and drinkable. Very good stuff.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze brazowym z obfita sredniopecherzykowa piana ktora szybko sie dziurawi i znika pozostawiajac ladne slady na szkle. W aromacie czerwone owoce, nuty winne i drewno. W smaku polslodkie z wyrazna wisniowo-porzeczkowa kwasnoscia. Troche karmelu i octu z wysyceniem na srednim poziomie i niska goryczka. Alkohol niewyczuwalny, piwo pijalne i ciekawie ulozone.

Turboninja (685) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2017
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with sweet, slightly sour nuances of cherry and caramel. Dark red color with minimal light beige head. Medium, unbalanced taste with bit dry cherry and a hint of malts that dampen the sourness nicely. narrow taste spectrum and short aftertaste with dry cherry. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, simple but organic and refreshing, still not being too sour.
