Svesse (8580) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2017
(Bottle) Deep red colour with frothy, pinkish white head. Fruity, sourish nose with notes of raspberries, grapes, vanilla, strawberries. Fruity, tart taste with sour raspberries, strawberries, red grapes and a tart and vinous finish with a light underlying sweetness. Almost full body, with a light sweetness. Quite well balanced, hides its 10% really well. A bit one-dimensional, but well made and tasty. Nice one. Jorn69 (3113) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2016
Backlog...................... Sample @ Malmö Öl & Whisky Festival 20140329. TEJA (3027) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2015
Draught at SBWF 2013.
Fluffy pink head that lasts. Clowdy pink color. Crisp lactic acid and raspberry aroma. Big raspberry taste with a balanced bitterness and tiny sweetness. Vignale (3785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2014
Flaska från SB. Knappt två år gammal. Skummet far ur flaskan när den öppnas. Vätskan liknar grumlig outspädd jordgubbssaft med ett högt smutsrosa skum som sjunker till ett krämigt lock. Riktgt fin sötsyrlig doft med massor av hallon. Söta hallon, lätt syrlig men också sträva tanniner balanserar sötman väl. En framboise med en touch av rött vin. Torr syrlig avslutning. En utmärkt hallonöl som kanske inte matchar de bästa från Belgien och USA men inte ligger långt efter. Riktigt gott. Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2014
The first time... A BEER... wet my pants, on opening*** //
Before it pours a dark red and treats the nose with deep sweet fruit and lingering soury brettanomyces aromas, it exploded on my desk and gushed over like a 660 year old dormant Icelandic geisir! Pure raw power!.. to say the least. My late-night reflexes though managed to react in about 3 seconds so only averagely 20 centiliters were saved. Grrr. Let’s cut the drama : 37,5cl bottle from Sweden. "Best before november 2014" it says - so probably brewed in nov 2011-2012 and aged till now. This fruit saison is soft medium sour and still full-bodied as hell. I smell grapes, framboise, raspberry, sugar, candy : yummy aromas. There’s a slight sticky sensation in the mouth, which is really tasteful. Now, normally I am used to more sour fruit lambics à la Cantillon or Tilquin, but I must say I strongly appreciated this very unique brew. A very welcome deviation! Try it if you can! With or without explosion.
**Blending tip : don’t wash the glass and pour a Westvleteren 12 (now:brew from dec. 2013). The still present fruity aromas really go well together! As the Fruit Cake isn’t that soury, it doesn’t interfere with the Ph value of the WV. Love the fruit scent intertwined with the matured taste palate our exquisite Flemish Bourgogne offers. Call it blasphemy or lack of reverence for this epic beer, but after years of Westvleteren indulgences, an experiment is most welcome.

Sample at Malmö beer- and whiskey festival. Stronzos sour-beers are among the best i’ve tried from the brewery. The one drawback to this beer is that there’s just slightly too much going on at the same time. gunnfryd (14833) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle. Red amber colour with a pinkish beige head. Aroma is alcohol, raspberry. Flavour is alcohol, raspberry, malt, brett, oak. Nice beer.
