Maakun (1176) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Black with enormous, very fuzzy beige head. Because of the night carbonation also some sediment is rising to the top. Brown bread, roasted nuts, lots of sour red berries and gooseberries. Very fruity with some hint of toast and old coffee towards the finish. Later some plastic and burnt rubber. Medium sour. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Not too complex, but srinkable beer. Alcohol is well hidden. I’m still not a huge fan of sour beers with dark malts but here it works reasonably well.

vyvvy (4536) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours dark brown with a good sized light tan head. The aroma cherries, coffee, tartness, berries and fruit sugar. It has a medium / full body with some crispness from the frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, sharp berry fruit, vinegar, yogurt tartness and a bit of spice. The finish has more tart qualities, slick malt and a lingering weird sourness. Decent, but not the normal sour beer sort of thing.

Emek (52) - Wrocław, POLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Trudno ocenić styl piwa, którego tak naprawdę nie znam. Ocena jest więc subiektywna. Pierwsze sour okazało się piwem dość wymagającym, cierpko-gorzko-kwaśnym, interesującym choć niezbyt łatwo pijalnym.

Garrold (2252) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle. Beermoth, Manchester. Clear, dark red. Dense, lasting, tan head. Nice, dark, sour fruits. Plum. Black cherry. Background of nutty, dark chocolate malts. Drinks tart, sour, fresh, fruity, slightly malty, and absolutely nowhere near 10%. Crisp, and slightly funky. Lots of carbonation complements the tartness really well. Finishes with more of the same. Good stuff. Not overly complex. Tart, and lightly malty. Silly drinkable.

Another beer that looks dark brown coming out of the bottle, but with nice orange (high) and red (deep) tones in the glass. Small tan head reduces to slight skim. Nose is vegetal, funk, cheese, smoke, perhaps from burned vegetables. Palate at times presents berries, raisins and literal as opposed to metaphorical sour grapes, but none of those flavors really take over. The consistent note of underlying vinegar is diluted, as though with fizzy tonic. Not bad, but I prefer more pronounced fruitiness to bounce off the sour.

tcon25 (174) - Duvall, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle pour split at Stumbling Monk Seattle. Almost black amber color, kind of funky aroma not sure how to describe this one, very bitter taste kindof dry, interesting sour.

andrewje41 (1074) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle pour at Stumbling Monk. I love how this place offers all ends of the sour spectrum. Super cola like pour. Huge fizzy brown head. A bit of a dark fruit, vegetal, aroma. Flavor is initially sour, but plum, grape and other dark fruit overpowers. Not in a bad way though. A ton of flavor here. Sour grape flavor lingers. Good beer.

chinchill (2677) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Dark saison. A malty ale with hints of figs, raisins, and dark fruit cake. Complex and interesting. Only mildly funky.

Dark brown colour. Sour dark fruit caramel aroma. Medium body, medium sweetness, sour
