Fruktøl skal være surt. Ordentlig surt. Ble vi glade da vi hørte at Lindheimshagene på Gvarv i Telemark hadde sure kirsebær? Endelig hadde vi funnet en riktig råvare for et slikt prosjekt! Nyt denne til modne oster eller ta den som en aperitif. Bedre blir det ikke.

jgb9348 (6519) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2017
Super purple coloured body with a nice, three to four centimetre tall pink head that fades relatively quickly. Aroma of cherries, tart grapes, light malt, some oak and dry hay and a lot more tart cherries - very nice nose indeed. Light to Medium-bodied; Super cherry flavour up front with a tart bite along with some sour grapes and a hint of blueberries along with a good oaky quality and a dose of sour brett flavours and a funky yeast bite near the end. Aftertaste shows mostly of the dry oak along with the super tart cherries, but also some other fruits remain along with a dose of more sweet fruit notes including plums and apricots. Overall, a very nice beer as expected and despite the high price and hard-to-find nature, a good option to have, but probably not worth so much trouble - unless you live on THIS side of the world. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from [not the USA] Jason’s Market Place at Taipei 101 in Taipei, Taiwan on 24-July-2017 for NT$250 sampled in my hotel room here in central Taipei, Taiwan on 27-July-2017. It was a very nice beer to have over here, and it was great to find, and better to not have to lug around and bring back home!

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, cherries and tart.

Opaque dark red/purple beer with a slight/medium pink head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and cherries; ends slightly dry and sour with tart.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Lovely sweet cherry flavour at the start, with a decent tart finish. Perfect appearance and a great palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

omhper (25833) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2017
Keg at Man in The Moon, Stockholm. Cloudy burgundy colour, small pink head. Tart woody cherry aroma. Tart with some underlying sweetness, medium bodied with rounded, spritzy mouthfeel. Rich, deep and pleasant sour cherry flavour. Low bitterness.
