Very dark brown color, thin white head. Aroma of red wine, vinegar and chocolate. Taste is similar. Solid amount of sourness, some frutiness, nice chocolatey sweet finish. Very dry. Fruity. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Interesting.

willisread (806) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya shared at a tasting. Dark brown with ruby highlights and small tan head that dissipates quickly. Great lacing. Aromas of plum, cherry, cinnamon, corriander, clove, prune and raisin with some roasted caramel notes as well. Taste is more of the same. Nice funky tartness, with a bit of roastiness and fruit.

Vignale (2533) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Skummar ur flaskan, brunröd med gigantiskt skum. Sötsyrlig doft med mörk vinäger, mörk torkad frukt, fuktigt trä, plommon. Bra balans mellan syra och sötma, fina djupa fruktiga lite murriga smaker. Riktigt gott.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours dark purplish amber - frothy, well-sustained lace - nose is dark fruit, basement must, light acetic notes, leather, cherries, pie crust, herbs - smells very nice, really - flavor is surprisingly dry and balanced for a sour ale of such strength - moderate tartness, sour earthy fruit skins, mild red wine vinegar, leather, stone fruit, dark bread - has a nice balance you do not often see in sours these days, so I’m really digging it.

Meilby (9623) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle 330ml @ Haand Ølfestival 2015, Drammen
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel and vinegar. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour with a long warm, sour, vinegar and berry finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice balanced sour beer.

erickok (4293) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 30, 2015
Brown body, large frothy bubbly head. Instable but still okay looking. Fruity sour notes, toasty malts, cereal. Foamy an sour at the same time, actually really nice. Compared to the Phi this is only in aroma somewhat toasty and roasty, the taste is merely a bit more rustic. Tasted blind you would give it dark brown looks. I dig this, less complex perhaps than an average Lambic but I dig the more diverse tasted and foamy bubbles. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

ogivlado (6341) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Dark brown coloured, medium to big sized brownish head, tart and slight roasty nose. Roasted malt, sour fruits, berries and notes of wood with touch of alcohol and tobacco. Slight acidic yeasty notes also. Tart and sour slight roasty finish. Could be better could be worse but still decent brew.

Listigovers (507) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
Beer smells amazing, roasted scent with a sour punch. Brown and cloudy with a forever brown head. Taste is awesome, malt vinegar in the aftertaste, roasted flavour, medium body, exceptional!

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
33 cl bottle (10%) @ Nietnigenough. Aroma has sourish berry juice and roastiness. Also some vinegar and hints of licorice. Flavour is rather tart with sour cherries, some woody notes, strong vinegar and red wine. Not my thing.
