3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yeasty acidic nose with prunish sherry tagging along. This impression is only strengthened after sampling: definitely a sherry-beer, or perhaps even more reminiscent of the Chinese Shao-Hsing (Shaoxing) wine known from many lesser Chinese establishments. Not bad, but quite odd.
Copenhagen 18/1 2018. 33 cl bottle from Øl-handleren in Hørning. Simple label with small golden lady enjoying a cup of Liefmans. Pours clear maroon with off-white head. Settles as thin creamy layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma has a little fruity sweetness which is soon overcome by strong sourness. Citrus, lemon, unripe sour berries. Acidic with a touch of sugar. Medium carbonation and water palate. Flavor is not as sour as I expected. Medium sweetness followed by strong sharp sourness. Aftertaste is sour and finish dry. Like a dry, creaky white wine - with a slightly sweet, more forgiving streak. Very nice middle of the road Sour Brown. Sergant (6) - - JAN 13, 2018 does not count
Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

Bottle during Sarkynorthener 5k and Faggot night cheers Martin; dark red/brown pour with a bubbly tan head, aroma has tart red fruits, taste has musty red fruits, slight sourness, ok. AssKicker (718) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JAN 3, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Couleur brune bien foncée. Mousse légère qui se fait vite la malle. Nez vachement porté sur le vin cuit de type Porto. Un peu de bois3 également. C'est très agréable. En bouche c'est très aromatique. Mélange de pruneau, de vin, et de cerise. La cerise domine bien en fin de bouche d'ailleurs. Carbo bien puissante, corps léger. C'est légèrement sucré, mais aussi un chouïa acide. Un doux nectar des dieux que voilà ! <3 beer-yum (1952) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2018 Restrained aroma in a black plum colored pour. Similarly laid back tart taste with a rich stone fruit body and deliciously lingering finish. A benchmark of the style - deservedly so.
