On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a hazy gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is funk, oak, red wine. Thin mouth, vinous, funky, oak, light tartness, dry finish, good.

mgajdaczewa (1575) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 4, 2016
W aromacie mamy głównie dzikość, mocno kojarzącą się z lambikiem, wieś, niewiele owocowości, leciutkie nuty drewniane. W smaku wyraźnie kwaśne i dzikie, pełniejsze od przeciętnego gueuze, dobra baza słodowa, a mimo to zachowanie świetniej pijalności. Długi kwaskowy, lekko octowy posmak. Bardzo orzeźwiające, choć brakuje mu nieco charakteru beczki, w którym leżakowało i ogólnie "tego czegoś". Choć i tak jest bdb.

alteregoo (808) - POLAND - JUN 29, 2016
Piana niewielka, średnio trwała, pozostaje w postaci pierzynki delikatnie oblepiając szkło. Barwa złoto pomarańczowa, mętna. Aromat kwaśny, czuć porzeczki, agrest, czerwone wytrawne wino, starą beczkę. W smaku spora kwaśność, przypominająca sok z cytryny, porzeczek i kiszonej kapusty razem wymieszane, sporo tanin, nut winnych, piwnicznych. W posmaku delikatna pikantność, lekka cierpkość. Wysycenie niskie, bardzo orzeźwiające, niewyczuwalny alkohol, pestkowa szorstkość w odczuciu.
Bardzo dobry sour, z wyraźnie winnymi i dzikimi naleciałościami od beczki i dzikich drożdży. Klasa na lato!

Vestergaard (1610) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2016
On tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear golden amber with a big, rather shirt lasting head. Aroma has lots of funk, vinegar, cherries, moldy blue cheese, red wine, tannins, oak, vanilla. Taste very sour. Both some vinegar, but more lactic than i would have guessed from the taste. Nice and clean when cold, but gets more messy and grainy as it warms up. Acidic oily texture and a medium high carbonation.

Hamirubi (547) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2016
10cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival II 2016 (16 V 2016). Hazy orange to red coloured wild ale, in a certain sense a blend of wild beer components from the Western World. This sour ale is aged on St.-Emilion barrels for between four months and one year. This gives a woody character to the ale, together with the already light sourness, a raspberry like mouthfeel. The tartness is lovely, with some earthy notes - coming from the Alvinne Morpheus yeasts, for sure. Lovely taste, with a soury lasting ending.

On tap at The Bottle Shop Bermondsey. As Bordeaux barrel aged. Clwar orange toffee colour lasting beige head. Slight sour aroma some sweetness. Pretty juicy. Dry finish. Yep pretty good.

jesperhammer (4095) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 13-MAY-2016, draft @Fermentoren following CBC Yellow Session, with Ulkløbben. Hazy orange with no head. No carbonation, soft, sour, Lambic-like with funk, straw and fruit. Fine.

Vignale (3213) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2016
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Lambicliknande på alla sätt. Gyllengul, ingen kolsyra, funkig och syrlig doft men lite mer laktosyrlig och lite snällare rundare syra. Smak av syrliga bär, citrus, plommon. Trevlig.
