Pours red-amber with a massive off white head. Aroma is sour, funky, but with some really delicious candied fruit as well. Flavor is more of that candied fruit, with just a hint of sourness and yeast. Flavor doesnt last quite as long as I would like, but other than that it’s very good.

Bottle at Patricks. Pours a cloudy ruby red with pink frothy head. Aroma is red grapes, fruity, earthy, citrus notes. Taste is medium sour, light sweet with a lovely lasting sourness. Medium body, thin to oily, lively carbonation. 20110618

Wischylini (312) - 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

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2003 Re rate: The beer is better tonight. It has a nice winey, oaky, blackcurrantish aroma. A bit tart but still sweet. The metallic taste is gone. Hurray! Reddish brown. Big cherry nose, a bit spicy. Cherry, a bit sour and then a metallic taste. this could be a good beer if it wasn't for its finish. I'll have to try it later on to see if this one was from a bad batch.

Bottle. Dark brown/red color. Vinegar aroma. Sweet taste. Cherries. A bit too sweet for my taste but not bad. The head disappeared fast.

on tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philly. it was awful. tasted like bad candy and rotten apples. way too sweet. way too sour. alcohol at the finish just not a compliment to anything. it finished really musky. yeah - not a fan. but maybe thats b/c I don’t like sour ales but didn’t know it until now?

Lot of balsamic character in this one. Some kind of candied fruit to add sweetness. Not bad at all.

Piwo butelkowe. Mocny kwaśno-octowy aromat, nuty kwiatowe. Kolor klarowny ciemny bursztyn z obfitą pianą o dużych oczkach. W smaku uderzająco kwaśne, czuć też dużą nieprzyjemną nutę octu, wysycenie wysokie. Bardzo wytrawne piwo nie moge powiedziec ze mi smakowalo ale tez nie moge stwierdzic ze bylo zle, ot zupełnie nie mój styl dlatego ocene daje średnią.

Robe brune bien foncée aux délicats reflets rubis. Mousse blanc cassé se dissipant rapidement, fin col au final. Nez : notes vineuses, liège, bois, tonneau, acidité, huiles essentielles. Bouche : petite douceur, belle acidité, notes de fruits rouges, des bois, cerise, citron.Mais aussi liège, tonneau, notes boisées subtiles. Un style que je ne connaissais pas.Et ma foi, plutôt étonnant et agréable.
