zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2013
bottle - wow this beer is all wild yeast. Huge gumdrop sours, raspberry and figs. Huge lactic acid and slightly vinegary. Damn tasty, but I can see the controversy too

Pinball (10856) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2013
cloudy brown, smooth brown head. Gusher. sourish and slightly tart aroma. malts. flavor is very nicely brune like, quite sour, but with lots of flavor. Palate is extremely flat and watery, the sourness hides a citrus peely sharp citric flavor, that only just peeks through, but keeps the total experience very refreshing.

EddyBeer1 (888) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2013
Brune foncée, pétillance plutôt forte, pas de mousse. Forte acidité (entre vinaigre et jus de citron) dès le début. Quand celle-ci se dissipe, il reste un petit goût torréfié. Dans le même genre, la Vanderghinste Oud Bruin est bien plus subtile!

Nordcore (1022) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle 33cl. Deep red with a small light brown head. Aroma of prunes, blueberries and acidic sence. The taste is medium/large sour with a fruity ending. Ok

Nice dark brown color with a sour, roasted aroma. Continuously effervescent. Sharply tart flavor with an underlying roasted flavor. Interesting that it has 0 IBUs.

Foffern (1248) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark nut brown colour with a small khaki head. Pretty carbonated. Aromas of sour berries, red currant, leather, heather and forest floor. Sour flavour of bitter berries, goose berries, plums and apple cider vinegar. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a heavy berry bitterness. A very sour ale, but is balanced in a way. I feel I need some food to tame this beer.

adnielsen (9134) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a hazy, deep maroon appearance with a bubbly brown head that doesn’t have much retention. Tangy acetic, dark berry, dark chocolate, oaky aroma. Sprizy, tangy, quite acetic, woody, light vanilla, big blackberry/raspberry, plum, fig flavor with bubbly carbonation and a moderate amount of acid on the finish. Not super smooth but not horrible either.
