750ml bottle thanks Spence. Pours out a brownish copper topped with a small head. Nose is more of the rare barrel oak balsamic vinegar some fruit notes and a nice sweetness. Taste is more of the sweet tart and barrel notes.

2014 750 bottle. Usually not a fan of dark/red sours, but this is fantastic. Aroma is mild sour and apples. Taste is caramel covered Granny Smith apples. Nice amount of sour withoutuch acidity. Well balanced and incredible drinkable. Good stuff.

hopscotch (10707) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks! Pours mostly clear and burnt-orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is a collection of red grapes, must, funk and a hint of caramel. Medium to full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is sour with afterthoughts of roastiness and caramel. Tart, tangy, lightly dry finish. Kudos to landhoney for popping the top off this world-class brew!

Holmen1 (5075) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 16, 2015
Fra flaske p RBHD-samling p Fridtjofen april-15: mrk brunrd farge med kort filmskum. Pregnant surst aroma med vinse overtoner (brett, lacto og br). Litt vanilje kryper kledelig inn i smaken, som er en uvanlig og meget god opplevelse, frste gang jeg smaker et fatlagret surl med bare 4%. Avrundet ettersmak.

abemorsten (3591) - Mostery, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
Delt stor flaske. Klar dyp rubinfarget kropp med en lysebrun ringlangs kanten. Fruktsyre og eplesidereddikk dominerer nesa med noter av br, lr og eik. Syrlig og friskt. Lett til medium fylde med en skarp overgang til mer cornflakes-toner. Mykt drikke. Deilig.

Shared bottle at RBHD tasting. From my Secret Santa. Pours clear dark reddish with a tiny white head. Aroma of light sour berries, wood and earth. Taste is weak tarty berries, refreshing and easy drinkable. Good bodied for a 4% beer. Dry tarty fionish.
