Drunk to celebrate my rating number 22,000. Bottled. A murky dark red beer with a lazing red-tan head. The aroma has notes of wood, cherries, brettanomyces, and some acetone. The flavor is sour with strong notes of sour cherries, alcohol, wood, and brettanomyces, as well as medium notes of vanilla, prunes, and vinegar, leading to a dry, tart, and woody finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark brownish color with a small off white head. The aroma is very vinous with tartness and notes of oak, almonds, cherries, brown sugar, vinegar, balsamic vinegar and dried dark fruits. The flavor follows the nose, with tartness, tart and sweet cherries, dried dark fruits, brown sugar, the balsamic vinegar, light dark caramel and almonds. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice interpretation of a Flemish Sour Ale.

250 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki.
Pours a dirty reddish brown colour with a small white head on the edges. Aroma of sour fruits, mild caramel and some grass. Flavour of very sour dried fruits, caramel, nuts, tannin and some malts. Medium bodied with a dry, tart mouthfeel with some warming. Reminds me of a red wine.

Saurer aber schwerer Antrunk, in dem Fruchtnoten kaum hervorkommen. Das Bier wird nun alkhollastiger, schwer, herb, wenig sauer und quasi nicht fruchtig. Etwas holzig, plump. /8/7/7/12/7

250ml bottle poured into my Narke tulip, thanks to Sean for this rare tick... A dark maroon, with purple notes. A light tan head forms a thick ring, light lacing... The aroma is really good, smells like an oud bruin with a hint of red wine and oak and some nice grapes... The taste is not as successful a little too chemical with a flat finish and way too much oak. A interesting tart note that I like but the finish kills me.

Bottle that Jan & Charlotte passed to me at Kerstbier Festival Essen, Belgium, Dec 2010 Many thanks Jan & Charlotte for this consumed w/c 14.02.11 Pours dark murky brown a bit like a well stewed cup of tea but with an off-white rim of bubbles. Sour cherry & red wine vinegar combine on the nose. Taste is sharp cherries, sour but lovely, its soft in the mouth, some woodiness, but sharp bitter unripe cherries force their way through again. Really like this A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7
