Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Guess we missed connections again, Alum. Color is just a shade lighter than the average stout. Thin scraggles of foam. The smell brings up sour cherries with a little roasted malt and chocolate, then notes of red wine. Taste is all about the sourness; I can’t find much of the dark malt at first. The cherry yields to cream sherry. Quite puckery. A fuller texture than the average sour beer. Now I’m picking up some chocolate roast malt toward the end. And at the very bottom, a sense memory of Pop Rocks. Definitely a sipper.

Batavi (319) - 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

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.

jason (1821) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2016
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.

gyllenbock (7187) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2016
On tap at Local Option. Almost black with a minimal head. Sour with vinegar, licorice, oak and some hints of red wine. I was not that impressed by this one.

Initially this tastes like something you find on aisle 8 at Lowe’s if you drank it instead of putting on your walls. As it warms it gets better... a little bit but you can eat white Elmer and get the same experience.

EdKing (2320) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
On keg in Torst, Brooklyn, rated in November. Opaque reddish to black, off white bubbles head which dissipates quickly. Nose is balsamic vinegar, sour and tart, berry, caramel then there’s some chocolate and toasted and roasted malt in there somewhere, apple. Taste is balsamic vinegar, apple, tart, sour lactobacillus, roasted malt, red wine tannins, chocolate. Vinegar dominating but it’s actually very nicely balanced.

mansquito (4963) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Beer Street, Brooklyn tap: pours brown with a small head. Aroma is pretty crazy. Lots of wine, chocolate, vinegar, and wine. Taste is different than the aroma... Mostly just weaker. Light chocolate notes. Quite aour. Light vinegar. Low carbonation. Not bad.
