_angst_ (4727) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Andr. Hazy reddish brown pour with a small offwhite head. Vinegar, biscuit malts & sour cherry nose. Leather & soil. Heavy sour fruity taste. Round, tart mouthpuckering mouthfeel. Insanely sour! Tons of vinegar but once you get past the acid it has some fairly nice oxidised leather, fruit & wood characteristics.
