hrabren (1144) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 11, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Vrutak, Zagreb. Shared with Vinja 666 and Nikola. Dark brown, coke color, small off-white head. Wine, cherry-brandy, basement aromas, alcohol, glue. Sour and gluey dryness. Astringent, very dry, medium body, lingering dry finish. Very sour, a beer for true sour lovers. Very nice and interesting.

graziano85 (456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 10, 2017
Deep amber/brown color, clear, with a small creamy head, disappearing with some lace. Aroma is licorice, some lactic acid, a little tartness, some wood notes. Taste is more lactic acid, vinegar but not intense, wood. Dry mouthfeel, good carbonation, not too much fizzy, refreshing. Its not a Rodenbach Grand Cru, but its a nice beer of this style.

Bottle at home. An incredibly odd beer with which Ive had a complicated relationship. First time I thought it was the nastiest thing God put on this earth. The second time, maybe one of the best. This time, this wine like beer came off more sweet than sour. It is of course very tart and had very powerful flavours of sherry and wine vinegar (so sherry vinegar). Berry pick a mix. I wish it felt more Belgian / alcoholic as it came off too sweet and vinegary this time. Was clearly better off draught at the pub in Sweden!

Wischylini (297) - Grimstad, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2017
Appearance Pours a clear brownish red with a small off-white head
Aroma Malty, vinous, balsamic vinegar, cranberries, cherries, grape, acetone, and hints of oaken barrels and spices
Taste Sweet, with a mild sourness
Palate Medium body, with high carbonation
Overall Pretty good, but the acetone is a bit too over-pronounced

beercalum (12) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Keg at Six Degrees North Edinburgh. Nose has notes of balsamic vinegar, thin, off-white head. Taste is sour, tart, and with a degree of rounded sweetness and notes similar to red wine. A very interesting, complex, beer that I have had in bottles many times, but which i was glad to have finally got to try on tap!

Mrk rdbrun farge med lysebrunt skum. Lukter sure Kirsbr og litt krydder. Veldig god og syrlig smak. Medium pluss med kullsyre og syrligheten sitter i lenge. Meget god :-)
