Bottle 650ml @ yngwieyngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2012
Pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is sour with notes of vinegar and hint of acetone, Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy sour with a long sour vinegar, dry and bitter finish . Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.
Bottle. It pours a small, off-white to light beige head over a more or less clear body. Amber in color. The aroma has a lightly sourish touch, with caramel, maltyness, dark sugars, vinegar kicks in after a while, and there’s also a touch of spices. Cardamom I think. Flavorwise it’s much the same, quite vinegar-ish and fruity with some spicyness. Dark berries, a faint note of metal and some caramel maltyness. Full-bodied and warming, tart and more or less dry. Fruity, berryish finish. Maybe a bit on the vinegarish side this one, but I like it. 120324 Geokkjer (7647) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2012

Bottled. A murky brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of sour berries and wine. The flavor is sweet and acicid with notes of over ripe fruits, wood, and berries, leading to a tart finish. Me like.

Rusty amber pour topped by minimal foam, but frankly, before your nose even approaches it, you forget about its appearance. Explosive, dense fruity nose complexified by well-extracted woodiness that brings about butterscotch, vanilla and delicious tannins. Overripe or perhaps dried fruits included on the platter include pear, apricot, raisins and figs, at times approaching a tropical nature. When you anticipate the sweetness might become too much, the efficient tartness puts it back on place. Richly complex, multi-layered experimental brew that visits most of the flavour spectrum in the beer world besides hoppy weavings. I personally find it fantastic how you can feel the caramel that must have been a huge part of this beer before it met its barreled faith... you can still feel it, but only its flavours, not its texture and sugariness. Instead, the malty richness matured into a glorious fruitiness and a textured textbook strong sour ale. While considerable warmth creeps up as the conclusion approaches, it is mostly neglected by its strong vinous character and the tannins that come with it. In an oaky, tannic ale, the warmth feels fitting, and we,re never talking about pure alcohol flavour here. Obviously, the oak sojour and tannins acquired mean you’re not to expect a thicker than porridge ale, but instead a medium-bodied, slightly carbonated, smooth palate whose sole purpose is to carry the abundant flavours to destination. j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2009

Pours a rusty brown.
Nose is big on vanilla, oak, wine, and funky figs.
Taste is complex, big wine and oak, some tanins, dark fruits, substantially less sour than its competitors at sourfest. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle. What a nice brew! Pours a copper gold body with an off white head. Sour grape and cherry notes, funky plum and a vinous body. Chewy toffee with a funky brett character and a tart lush body. This was fantastic!
