Russo (1634) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 17, 2014
Terrible... Sorry guys but I still don’t understand why have so many good rates here. Deep dark brown color with a beige head, aroma is sour, vinegar and some dark fruits. Flavor is terrible bad, pour vinegar and metallic notes. I couldn’t give more than 4 sips. Low carbonation full body with a very acid and sour finish. argh!

Donker troebel bier. Smaak is zuur als Lambiek met fruit. Blijft tamelijk lang hangen.

Kadakas (11) - ESTONIA - APR 5, 2014
Nice bottle, wrapped into paper, stilish. Taste although is... interesting. Deeply sour taste, like a raw, unfinished homemade vine. Tastes and smells bit like a kriek. I can also tase a little cowberry and even cranberry. Definitely unique beer to taste but wouldn’t buy another one.

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - MAR 26, 2014
Oud bruin classica, con il caratteristico gusto agrodolce con note vinose e acetiche che accarezzano il palalto lasciando una sensazione piacevole e prolungata. Molto buona.

Gr0ve (2113) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2014
375 ml paper wrapped bottle. Brown and crystal clear. Very small off-white head. Falls down eventually. Nice acidic nutty aroma. Light sour flavours with barn yard and dark caramel malts. Light bodied. Refreshing. Very drinkable. Love it.

martjoobolut (338) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 19, 2014
0,375L bottle, BB 07.2014. Pours reddish brown with small head. The head disappears immediately. Aroma is medicinal, sour, malt, herbs, cherries, and berries. Taste follows the nose, but also has some red wine and wood notes. Overall: it’s not bad, but not really my kind of beer.

Weird brown color with slight reddish hue, thin tan head. Medium body, soft carbonation. Aroma is berries (raspberry, maybe cranberry), also hints of cherries, caramel malts. Very fruity. Taste is more sour than sweet. Very fruity and very nice sour beer.
