Brewer Description: (from Mikkeller webshop) With cherries from the award winning Frederiksdal plantation (situated on the island of Lolland in the very south of Denmark) we proudly present the perfect combination of berries and sour ale;.

Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 21st August 2022 and poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a clear deep ruby colour with a one finger pinkish (like beetroot) head that dissipated quickly into an extremely thing layer with nice lacing.
Aroma: Mainly tart cherry, dark berries and almond.
Taste: Taste is similar to the aroma with tart cherry and dark berries dominating while the finish becomes even more sour and gives rise to citrus pomelo.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation.
Overall: I loved it. The tart cherries and the sourness were balanced and is just another must buy beer for me.
