Countbeer (4544) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Roman, Medium sized nutty caramel light brown colored lively head on top of a deep dark and murky brown colored beer. Smell manure, chocolate, yeast, light sour tint, barleys, dark candy sweetness (toffee, caramel) but overpowered by the sour yeasty nose. Taste light tartness, yeasty tart/sour, malty sour, grainy sour, hint of liquorice, caramel and barleys. Unbalanced. There’s a nasty stingy bitter malty tone. Aftertaste is yeasty sour with some malts and a stingy malty sour tint. Medium carbo, watery but a bit harsher mouthfeel, medium bodie and a watery texture. A weak clone of Orval... Not that it is their mission... Anyways, strange pretty annoying unbalanced sour malty tint...

bu11zeye (11972) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
(330ml bottle) Pours an amber body with a thick foamy beige head. Aroma of cherry, herbs, chocolate, toasted grain, and earthiness. Flavor of cherry, chocolate, some noticeable oxidation, citrus, caramel, yeast, and earthiness.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a one finger beige head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with some earthy oak, vinous fruit, vinegar and acetone. Some dark malt, caramel and toffee along with hints of raisin, fig and solvent. On the lighter end of medium bodied with a harsh acetone character that dominates the flavor, overpowering almost everything else. Very harsh vinegar-y solvent character that’s tart and puckering but not pleasant or flavorful. Subtle oak and vinous fruit underneath but it’s hard to pick up anything because of the overwhelming acetic character.

PorterPounder (5598) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Market - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby red with a tight reddish colored head. Aroma is sour and tangy with hints of vinegar and rhubarb. Flavor is wild and sour with some fresh raspberry notes, a hint of rhubarb, some sourheads candy and a hint of sour wine. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown and garnet in color with a tall, frothy brown head. Aroma surprisingly isn’t very sour but there is mild tartness, soft wood and and almost a grainy type note to it. Taste is big and bold sour fruit, balsamic vinegar, wet wood, light earthiness and soft grains. Body is light and somewhat acidic. Dry during the finish with soft carbonation. Ends with more sour fruit, wet wood, damp earthiness, funky yeast and soft grains.

laiti (5777) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 01/2017
The beer started to come out of the bottle right after opening the cap – how surprising from Alvinne. Aroma has sourish cherries, oaky notes, some vinegar and red wine notes. Flavour is acidic with oaky notes, sour cherries and vinegar. Finishes rather sour and tart. These oud bruins are not my thing.

olio (6281) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
33 cl bottle. BBE 01/2017.
Pours nice red wine color with a small head. Aroma of sour fruits, cellar notes, yeast, grapes, grape fruits and leather. Flavor of sour fruits, dark sour berries, yeast, grape fruits, and grapes. Sour palate, dry finish. A bit too stuffy aroma, otherwise decent.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2012

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
(Bottle, Nuetnigenough, Brussels, 21 July 2012) Dark reddish brown colour with brief head. Fruity, sourish nose with red fruit, caramel and a touch of vinegar. Fruity, tart taste with notes of caramel, red-currant, balsamic vinegar and a dry, tart finish. The lack of hops seems to give the sourness a slightly sharp edge. Medium body, quite dry. Different, but quite nice.

Bottle @ Heeren Van Liedekercke Bierfest, 2012. Pours cola with a sprinkling head. Nose is almond, grain and caramel. Tart and funky flavor. Earth, almond and manuer. Tart. Unrefined!
