Pours a hazy deep reddish brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of sour fruits....wow lots of sour funk in this one. Flavor is fruit, sweetness that balances out the sour, a little bit of nuttiness. Finishes nice and smooth. I quite enjoyed this style.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2008 25 cl bottle at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. Amber color, nice off-white head. Aroma is dried and sour fruit. Flavor is fruity, sweet, oak, dried fruit. Very nice carbonation. Balanced and quite balanced.

[email protected] Cloudy reddish-brown color, lasting head. Sour, fruity aroma. The taste reminds me of both Finnish sahti-style beer and sweet red wine. The finish is dry and sour. Not a personal favorite.

I am not usually a big fan of sour ales but this one hit the spot. Bottle: Pours a amber brown that les only a bit of light thru. Lacing is sparse but dense when apparent. Carbonation is steady but has separate pillars. Nose is of ripe fruit blended with lemon. Body is elastic and swings from sweet and fruity to decidely tart and sour and then repeats twoce before fading. I didnt catch any oakyness but it may have helped the rounding of body. Glad I picked this one up.

Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2008
Copper brown with a big pillow of creamy off-white head. Light fruity aroma, some apple peel and som sourness. Sweet with a decent sour finish. It’s good in the candy-like sour category, but I didn’t like that apple thing.

Draft-Great Lost Bear. A little sweet for my palate, but very drinkable. Almost too sweet to be considered sour. Great body and pleasant aroma.

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com) As I recall, this was a tasty brew.

Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2008
0.25 l bottle. Ruby color with small head. Sweet and acidic aroma with strawberry, cherry and licorice. Sweet, sour and berryish flavor with notes of licorice, dark sugar and acetic acid. Too much sugary sweetness but still faily pleasant.

Robijnrood versnijbier met zoet fruitige smaak en met frisse doch speciaal zurige afdronk en een lage bitterheid
