250 ml wine glass draft at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade, Copenhagen (May 2016 - I'm way behind) Notes:

A- Hazed light brown in color, with some beautiful rosy/orange hues. Head is off white and dies to a thin layer.

S- Berry/cherry, plum, some lemon zest. Lacto tang, and some woody notes.

T- Subtle oak notes mixed perfectly with blueberry, and dark stone fruits: plum and cherry.

M- Body is light and effervescent. A little sticky. Finish is sweet and tart.

O- Wonderful sour. Great blend of fruit and wood. Light, complex, fantastic.

2015 (red wax). Pours pink-red color with good bit of foam with agressive pour. Smell is of sour blueberries. Sweet and very tart fruity taste of blueberries and cherries. Very acidic too. Definitely a bottle to share. Medium mouthfeel. Overall, a solid sour that will rip your face off.

Look is uncarbonated filtered apple cider. Pours with zero head.

Aroma is all acidity....

Taste is intense sour blueberry skins. Nothing more and nothing less. 2015 vintage I believe.

Feel is smooth and coats the palette impressively. Carbonation is expected low.

Overall a nice sour from the cellar. Would love to compare it side by side with a fresh one....

Red wax 750ml bottle, served in a snifter glass. Pours a medium golden-orange body, one finger white head with good retention, no lacing. Smell is lactic acid and vinegar, oak, touch of yogurt, a bit of toasted grain. It's smelling pretty tasty, but it's quite acidic. Reminds me of Pear Bear. Flavour is similar; a bit one-dimensional but tasty nevertheless. No blueberry fruit presence, but a lot of acidity, touch of grain and a bit of tannic character and even a bit of lemon. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation, quite acidic and fairly mouthwatering, but it isn't quite as acidic as Pear Bear was. Yikes. Still a decent drink, but if you've still got any at this point, I can't imagine it getting any better.

2014 vintage; drank 6/17/15 @ Harvest Hop Haus.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Ruby red appearance.

Khaki head; minimal lace.

Sweet raspberry, mild cherry & faint tartness in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Raspberry, sweet cherry & strawberry flavors up front; tart soda bite on the finish. A fruit forward delight.
