tia (1814) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 Bottle from Ellwoods. Hazy orange color with foamy dissipating head. Vinegar with a cotton candy undertone. Sour but also fairly sweet. Split personality. It did grow on me as I drank it.

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Pours hazy orange with a good sized white head. The aroma has sourness, ripe stone fruits, raspberries vinegar and bit of lactic acid. It has a a medium body that’s a bit crisp, but fuller than most sour ales and a lot for fairly soft carbonation The taste starts with stone fruits, vinegar, berries from the aroma and malt that balances to keep it from being very sour. The finish is fairly crisp and refreshing, I don’t know how this thing is 10% alcohol. It doesn’t taste like it at all. Not up to the norm for sour ales, but it’s quite enjoyable and less expensive than most sours as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rondphoto (4104) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 6, 2016
bottle @ The Beer Trappe / Lexington KY --- Aroma of sour malt. Hazy medium amber color, off-white head that settles to a cover, hanging lace strands. Taste is sour malt that moves silkily through a solid carbonated swallow, growing into a finish that offers another burst of sour at the end. Sour enough to pucker up, and strong, but, where is the alcohol? A sneaky (10% abv), well-done, strong Sour Ale.

corkyrory66 (1431) - BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2016
Bière de la "sour collection" d’Alvinne, avec levure morpheus et houblon suranné. Niveau abv de 10 %, fermentation mixte. Mon exemplaire était à 7 mois après sa date, ce qui devait (hypothétiquement ) améliorer cette bière... La gloire est encore loin !! Couleur abricot foncé, avec un voile de levure en suspension mais joli (énorme saturation à l’ouverture). Mousse blanc cassé, bien crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes d’orge concassé, girofle, vinaigre de in, pelure d’oignon. 1ère bouche veloutée sur du lambic et de l’oignon. Arrière-bouche dense, longue, aigre. Bouches suivantes et longueur où on prend les mêmes et on recommence … Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure douce, fine, très belle ligne (mais que peut-elle faire là-dedans ??). Alcool très bien en théorie, mais il ne peut relever pareille soupe.... (d’oignons, bien sûr). Finale aigre (tiens donc..). CONCLUSION : bière pour sado maso, amateur de lambic et autre vinaigre. Mentionnons quand même la belle mousse et la texture veloutée. Point final.

Draft. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of berries, brettanomyces, and citrus fruits. The flavor is acidic with notes of berries, straw, alcohol, wood, and brettanomyces, leading to a tart finish.
