Nocturne (1203) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
750ml bottle. Murky burnt orange. Not much head. Fruit cocktail aroma. Taste is green apple, straw, stewed fruits, bit of acidity, complex. It’s well poised on the tongue. Mostly dry, mild sourness, but balanced and very drinkable. Very nice but not quite how I imagined it to be.

Mortlach (1312) - Rome, ITALY - APR 5, 2015
750ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Pours a cloudy light amber color with a medium foam. Aroma is fantastic, wild yeasts, barnyard, oak, some balsamic notes and alpine flowers, wow! Flavour is rich and complex, very sour and rustic, powerful and persistent in the mouth. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Exciting and unique.

Arve_Christian (3963) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
75 cl bottle at Sandar Mikrobryggeri. Clear golden color, good foam. High aroma intensity; stable; autumn leaves- great yeast influence also light cherries in the finish. Medium body & high complexity. Great sourness & good bitterness; well balanced. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (5623) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Sampled at Shep’s Diaper Party. A big tick here and a good one! Begins with a blast of funk in the mouth that quickly settled and all kinds of interesting stuff emerged. Lemon and grass, citrus, must, and at the finish, salt. Really good.

ippopotamo36 (779) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 23, 2015
0,75 bottle, an unique and apparently retired jewel that mortlach shared with me at La Tana pub in Rome-Italy. Grazie! The beer pours a semi-filtered cornish color which is very hard to define (never seen such a unique appearance in any of the beers I have drunken before). The cap is medium-low with gassy big bubbles and a yellow-orange reflex. Fantastic. The nose is complex: wild-red fruits, oak barrel, fruity (peach). Mouth is terrific: a background of round maltiness in a balanced sour drink. Berries, wood! Bravo!
