laiti (7264) - Helsinki, - JUL 30, 2011
33 cl bottle @ EEIPAF. No BBE info
Sour, very brettanomyces-like aroma. Blindfolded I would guess I’d be drinking Orval. Some slight roastiness can be observed though. Flavour is rather messy with sour bretta and roasted malt. Quite typical belgian stout actually, but more sour than others.

larryLSB (472) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle from AJ’s in Soquel, poured into a FW Teku chalice. Ticked this off on our recent trip, but saw it on the shelf and thought I’d rate it. Dark brown with a medium sized dark tan head. Nose reminds me of bittersweet chocolate with a bit of funk thrown in. Taste is complex, bitter sweet with underlying sour notes. Medium bodied, finishes on the bitter side. Interesting Porter with the sour twist.

karpik (240) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Aroma is a mix of lambic and porter. There is chocolate, bit funky, some hay. Pours almost black with tan head. Taste is medium dry. Again, funky notes are mixed with chocolate, very interesting. Overall unusual beer, definitely worth a try.

scirtes (151) - POLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle, bb 21/11/16. Pours almost black with ruby hue. Foam is beige, nice lacing. Aromas of chocolate with intriguing sour / wild notes. Taste is chocolate with light sourness. Quite dry, low to medium bodied, drinkable.

miquelcrush (1785) - Granollers, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2015
Cervesa molt interessant, barreja els tocs torrats i dolços d’una porter però amb un lleuger toc àcid final. Cerveza muy interesante, mezcla los toques tostados y dulces de una porter pero con un ligero toque ácido final.

Erzengel (5501) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2015
* Mild-säuerliches, malziges Bier. Frisch, nicht zu tief, süffig und rund. Moderat bitter im Nachgeschmack.

yourilevesque (391) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
Bière bien noire à la mousse onctueuse et s’agrippant à mon verre avec force et élégance. La mousse est formée de très grosses bulles et les parois de mon verre en sont entièrement recouvertes. Nez super funky de café, de brettanomyces, de praline. La racine Porter est évidente, malgré le processus de fermentation spontanée plutôt déroutant. On est très près d’un porter baltique pour être plus précis. Le corps est mince/moyen, l’effervescence modérée. Un quelque chose de fumé et plutôt amer n’est pas déplaisant dans cette bière plutôt sèche et acide. J’ai également l’impression d’y déceler de la cerise. Très bonne bière qui allie audace, innovation et respect du style. Je trouve cependant qu’elle joue sur trop de tableaux à la fois; un peu mal définie.

cargo150 (1022) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
Belle couleur noire-brune a la tete beige. Aromes de cafe, chocolat, vanille, caramel, leger gout de bois. Leger aciditer... Juste correct pour ma part je m’attendais a mieux mais ca demeure une biere respectable.

aleksander9 (776) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2015
Black with tan head. Roasted malt, fresh coffee, oranges and lemon. Sweet, roasted and light sour finish. Overall: The Lambic yeast creates citrus fruit aromas that fits well in this beer. Lacks body.
