Hopverdju (347) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2016
Wazig amber/oranje kleurig bier met brokken en enorm veel beige schuim die vlug weg is. Geur: Zurig, kruidig, honing. Smaak: zuur, trekt tot aan je tanden. De tweede slok gaat beter en is minder zuur. Niet in balans. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: zurig.

Iphonephan (5586) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2016
From a 33 cl bottle. Pours a murky copper with a thick ecru head and lots of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma of peaches and white wine. First flavor is of big funky tart pit fruits. Lingering tart finish.

oldrtybastrd (4337) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
Deep reddish-brown colour, slight malt feel to it, acidic and sour, rather like that of a lambic, not much of a head on it, fruit flavours linger.

Flaska bishops. Disig gul vätska. Unken och syrlig doft. Citron, jordkällare och komposterade löv. Syrlig smak med söt ton. Halm, örter, citron och jäst.

jgb9348 (5432) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Clear golden and copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head, only about a half centimetre tall. Aroma of sour grapes, funk, yeast, gueuze, lemons and a hint of alcohol coupled with light malt as well. Light-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong sour quality up front of pure gueuze along with a sour grape and cherry flavour and finishing with a good deal of unfinished fruit-based sugars and a touch of syrup. Aftertaste is rich and sour, tart, funky, bright and definitely mouth-watering. Overall, this is MUCH better than expected - after reading these reviews, I was expecting this to be ho-hum, but it turned out to be a very nice beer - complex and sour, funky and bright, and definitely hiding about 5% of the abv - this feels like around 5%, so at 10%, i’m very surprised. Definitely worth sampling/buying if you can find it, and even though I only kept mine for a bit over a year, this would probably do well in the bottle; However, mine was just starting to bubble over as soon as the cap was removed, so maybe not 5+ years for this one. I sampled this stubby (it is from Belgium) 33 cL bottle purchased from Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 18-January-2015 for €3,00 sampled at home in Washington on 08-March-2016. Lot #726 (on cap), with ’MEI 2016’ listed as well (not sure what that means)

Dark blond colour with thin egg white head. Aroma of sour scrumpy and wood. Flavour is sour, woody and dry. Elements of tart apple and light malt.

if its short and stubby, it’s sure to be as fun as an engorging worm infestation .. sour hay, it’s dirty, used cotton wool .. . mouth is airy, bubbles are misaligned .. . not for me .. . . forgot underwear again. how unseasonable..

KyotoLefty (8746) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle. Repugnant gusher that made a mess of my table and really pissed me off. Noose is sour apple, slight vinegar, honey, cloudy honey golden with a high head then lace. Flavors of honey, lemon, grapefruit, yogurt. Quite sweet. Full body, greeat balance.
