KoNrRiI (1182) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A very dark brown color with virtually no head to speak of. Aroma is sour, fruits, molasses, vinegar, and a bit of wine. Taste is also sour, fruity, nutty, sour strawberries, some grapes, and a tad of oak. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long and very sour but nonetheless palatable and enjoyable. Overall the beer is good, I have never been a sucker for sour ales but this one is actually pleasant.

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Dark brownish purple color. Aromas of vinegar and dark fruit. Tastes of vinegar, dark chocolate, dark fruit, tart acidic notes, funky cheese. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

Ernest (7284) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle (BB Nov 2018). Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown (with ruby tones). Aroma is moderately malty (molasses, nuts), with notes of vinegar, old walnut shells, cardboard, sherry, cherry. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Phew, pretty damned difficult to like this...nose is all oxidation and syrupy/molasses-like malt and vinegar, and the mouth experience is dirty and harsh. I like sour ales fine, esp. well-made Flemish reds, but this ain’t one of those. This is poorly oxidized stout or some such, very crude and raw. A complete drain pour.

On tap at The Sovereign. Very dark red. Smells like a red wine. Very low carbonation. Smooth feel.

djd07 (9748) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2016
On tap at Torst. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit, oak, vinegar, leather. Thin mouth, licorice, vinegar, oak tannin, nice tartness, very good.

Batavi (350) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2016
Geproefd tijdens IPA/Sour proeverij, uitgeschonken in een Struise proefglas. Roodbruine kleur met een minimale lichtbeige schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt. De aroma's zijn intens zurig, met tonen van eikenhout, balsamico, rood fruit als aardbeien, frambozen en kersen, en notities van rode wijn. Het smaakpallet is behoorlijk zuur, met tonen van balsamico, rode wijn, eikenhout, rood fruit, in balans gebracht met tonen van licht gebrande mout en karamel. Enigszins waterige body en lichte carbonatie. De afdronk is droog en zurig. Niet de meest complexe sour, maar zeker wel een interessant bier in de Vlaamse Oud Bruin stijl, met mooie fruitige accenten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radagast83 (7141) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2016
Bottle (I think) at the Sovereign for their Brouwerij Alvinne event. Poured a semi-opaque brown color (the room had low-lighting at this point so I’m not totally sure about how opaque it could be). Aroma was tart, funky notes with lightly malted fruits. Light cherry skins, wine notes.

Bottle. Aroma of grapes and oak. Body is dark cloudy brown,red with no head. Flavor is grapes, oak. Almost acidic palate but a long lingering sour and tartness that it is balanced.
