mixmasterob (922) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle from Greens. Poured an opaque dark burgundy, damn near black with ruby highlights. No carbonation, still. Gorgeous nose. Slightly fruity and sour with just a touch roast. Vinous from top to bottom. Flavors were tart on the verge of puckering. Dry finish led to a refreshing beer. Would have liked some carbonation. Good though.

fiammanghilla (712) - Genova, ITALY - MAY 2, 2013
Spina @ Zythos biere festival. Ambrata scurissima, priva di schiuma. Molto strana, acida e tostata. Difficile da bere... Comunque interessante...

Tap. Pours a dark brown with no head. Aromas of a typical sour Brune. Flavors of sour raspberries and wood.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2013
Shared 0,5 L bottle. Pours a hazed dark burgundy body, with a layer of tanned bubbles on top. Red wine aroma with a light sourness to it. Light barrel notes and hint of yellow fruits and burnt caramel. Taste is light sweet, light sour-acidic. Vinous, with faint caramel some dried fruit tones. Medium full. Light sparkling carbonation. Dry, fruity acidic and light bitterish finish. Very likeable. [09.02.13]

First impression.. Not as tart as I was expecting... Not what I was expecting at all?? I can understand why others have said cola, though it’s more complex then that. Aromas of dried cherries, raisins, mild balsamic vinegar, caramel and damp, wine soaked wood dominate the aromas.. While the palate is a touch sweeter and fuller then tart, which really accentuates the dried fruit on the palate and sets it apart from the overly acidic sours of today.. Lovely palate dominated by mildly sweet, dried cherries and raisins and a hint of caramel and balsamic vinegar.. Very pure fruit profile.. Full bodied.. Zero carbonation... Dry, mildly tart cherry/raisin finish.. Refreshing and mouthwatering.. Balanced and well delineated aromas and flavors.. Ruby Port like.. in the most positive sense of the term. Very enjoyable. Super easy to drink. Leaves me craving more... --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

brokensail (12169) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Cola colored pour with a khaki head. Sweet dark fruit notes such as raisins and cherries. A bit of cola, lots of balsamic and red wine vinegar, molasses, oak, and a bit of roasted malt. The flavor is almost overwhelmingly sour and acetic. Dark fruit flavor of raisin, cherry, and plum. Cola and molasses sweetness, some roast, a hint of licorice, and oak. Far too acetic for my tastes.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2013
33cl bottle shared with Wim. Dark brown coloured beer with no carbonation and no head, almost a more oily structure. Strange light sour herby hinted aroma. Thicker oily palate. Finish is light sweet fruity sour strong dense and herby. Very enjoyable

Bottle at 124 old rabbit club in NYC. Dark brown CPR with a sweet and sour note. A little too sweet in my opinion. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
