COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep ruby brown hued, lightly hazy, artisanal Flemish sour ale. Expect soft toasty malt presence, a light sweetness, and a pronounced acidic tartness. A woody ale that’s remarkably tart! Yet still both gentle and bright. This mega-rare version is aged in French Monbazillac barrels, imparting a dry, woody, fruity, tart, strawberry like finish

On tap at Redlight. Deep ruby brown color, mostly still pour. Light soured grain aroma. Nice aggressive acetic sourness on the taste, lingers nicely. Solid brune.

Posiblemente una de las sorpresas más desagradables que me he llevado últimamente. Un sabor agrio muy pronunciado que dificulta mucho el poder encontrar otros matices, siendo una cerveza muy desequilibrada (y a la vez no muy bien ejecutada). Hay que hacer esfuerzos para encontrar los matices, que los acaba teniendo. Posiblemente un buen fiasco dentro del "portfolio" de Alvinne.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle @ Alvinne Proeflokaal. Darker brown coloured beer, light hazy no carbonation, no head and a very oily like texture. Slightly wooden short roasted oaky sweet sour hinted almost short smokey touched aroma. Medium to full creamy special oily texture. Finish is light tart, fruity acidic with a sour long dry ending. Very special and strange, but definitly nice.

OleR (4763) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2013
Sampled from bottle. Pours an almost still, mahogny brown body. A few short-lived beige bubbles on top. Vinous and light vinegary aroma. Some inviting notes of tart berries and tinned dark fruits. Amazing texture. Supersmooth, almost succulent. Fruity flavor reminiscent of berries, grapes, zesty citrus, and tinned dark fruits. Both tart and light vinegar sour. Faint caramel and vanilla. Medium body strengt. Lingering sour-tart fruit finish. A very special one.

Opaque black beer, no head. Smooth palate. Semi dry, low carbonation. Tangy sour beer. Sour red wine. Tangy cherry , blackcurrant and raspberry notes that you would associate with a heavy red wine. Smooth semi dry finish. All about the red wine barrel here!

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with absolutely no trace of any sort of head retention. Actually, it looks more like some brown-stained red wine than anything else. Aroma is mild balsamic and oak tones, dark malts, red fruits, tart berries, hints of cherries and mellow raspberries far in the back. Taste is dry, oaky sour tones, vinegar, hints of dark fruits, raisins, wood and vinous grapes. Nice and smooth. Palate is viscous, near-oily and thick, completely devoid of carbonation. All in all a very pleasant and well-made sour, but the flatness and lack of "something extra" prevents what could have been a really high score.

teddybeer (2162) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle shared @ Animal. Brown colour with minimal off-white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is smoky, yeasty, roasty. Flavor is vinegar, slightly red fruits hints and wood. Acid and red wine final.

19/I/13 -75cl bottle @ RBBWG 2013 - BB: n/a (2013-63) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear red brown beer, no head. Aroma: very smelly, rotten fruits, infection all over, rotten leafs, very bad. MF: no carbon, light to medium body. Taste: vinegar sourness, rotten stuff, bit of sugar. Aftertaste: vinegar, earthy, sour, very bad. Damn, this is literally not drinkable... :-(

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2013
Brown reddish colour, no head. Sour aroma, caramel, attic, burned sugar and overripe fruits. Quite sour flavour, light sweet, turning into really sour the more you sip. Flat. Sour finish, molasses.
Was hoping for a bit more from this one.
(From 75cL bottle @ RBBWG II, Wilrijk 2013. Courtesy of sebletitje. Thanks!)
