DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Creamy pink pour, little carbonation and a sugary fruit aroma. Flavor was more sugary sour cherry, cheap sugar and vinegar. Not bad, but was hoping for something more from this one.

Massive Mikkeller pt.2. A great beer I thought Id never be able to land, but I guess I got lucky. Great sour aroma with hints of cherries. Very tart and fruity flavor. All around amazing!

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2012
250 ml bottle. Reddish brown and hazy. No head to speak of. Acidic vinegary nose with hints of oak and cherries. Nail polish. Vinegary oak flavours once it enters the mouth. Prickling on the tongue. Surprisingly sweet, but theres enough acidity to counterbalance this. Lots of vinegar in the aftertaste. Really nice in fact. Bottle is big enough as its a little challenging to drink, but it is quite complex and intriguing.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2011
(Bottle) Pours cloudy peach orange red with a small, big bubbly off-white head. The aroma holds aggressive notes of acid, poo, glue, sweat, rotten fruits, overripe, yet super acidic red berries, vinegar and light malt. The nose is hard and edgy without any finesse. The flavor is light sweet and medium to heavily acidic. Almost no bitterness. Like throwing up backwards. Cherries, acid, citrus, vinegar, lacto, light cheese, light malt and unripe green apples. YThe flavor is super tart and fairly slim with light carbonation. Super throwing up-like finish. Medium bodied.
