0.3l bottle from liberty wines! Thanks Angela! Served in a chalice. Pours an opaque brown, lots of carbonation. Head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: Cherries, oak. Can’t get more as my nose is stuffed. Palate: medium bodied, smooth but fizzy. Short finish. Taste: Starts of sweet, quickly moves to rather tart, but not face-implodingly tart. Very nice. maddmatt639 (331) - Pacifica, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Smells sour and a little putrid. Tastes like sour apples in a brown ale. I do not like.

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby with a tan head. Aroma is little lacking with a tiny hint of citrus, but mostly carbonation. Flavour is fantastic with wine and grape notes a little sourness and a smooth almost sweet finish. Body is thin. Absolutely wonderful. Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2010
Deep red with a brownish hint and a off-white head. Nice aroma with sour wild yeast in the forefront, also a red wine feel to it (a light pinot noir) and a earthy/woody character. The taste is surprisingly sweet and malty judging by the nose. But the acidity is there and balancing it nicely. There’s also some raspberries and perhaps other red berries. Ends with a good sour bitterness that makes the beer quite refreshing despite the sweetness.

An "expired," bottle from the brewery. I would say at least a year or two in the bottle. Apple and sherry vinegar all of the nose with hints of sweet caramel. Dark and red fruits exude through the palate. The acidity has tamed and the malt has dryed a little from age. With a more complex and rounded palate this beer continues to release wave after wave oif flavors. A soft vanilla sweetness seems to round everything out as the bubbles caress the mouth. On the finish, lingering dryed apple, skins and all, and old malt sweetness are foiled by a refreshing acidity. Autolyzed yeast lend a slight savory touch.

Red appearance with a minimumsized head. Aroma is really woody and oaky with lots of sweentess. Flavor is complex with a nice sweetsour taste to it and lots of acidity. Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Straight from the bottle enjoyed on a summit over Lago Lugano, Switzerland. This was recommended to me by the wife/owner of A Tutta Birra in Milano as her favorite. Most interesting beer I’ve had so far in Italy. The aroma reminded me of rotting trash and at first sip so did the flavor. Further sips revealed sour cherries, dark fruits, apricot and vanilla. Incredibly smooth on the palate, absolutely no kick at the end. Much too sweet for me, almost could be considered a dessert beer in the same vein as dessert wines.
