GABF 2009. Pours a hazy medium amber with a light beige head. Aroma smells like wild berries and mild funk. Lighter side of medium bodied. The flavor really captures the flavor of wild berries, with a light maltiness in the background. The sweetness is just right, so that the controlled tartness can play into the mix. Acetic traits are tame, in a good way. I like this because it’s not thick sour bomb. Excellent, and extra points for getting the "wild" berry flavor into the beer, something I have never experienced before. It reminded me of when my grandfather and I would go berry picking along the country roadsides.

sample from the pitcher at GABF on 9/26/09... Really nice Sour from Bells! I was really excited to see them pouring this one.... and it was one of the only ones left at their booth... pours a murky golden brown... sour citrus nose... some funk on the nose as well... light to medium body... nice tart finish. very enjoyable.

On tap at Maduro’s - Pours rosy amber with a small off-white head. Tart and funky on the nose, with some citrus--lemon mostly. Pretty smooth. Taste is balsamic vinegar, light oak, and a bit of orange rind. Fantastically easy-to-drink. Not too tart, but funky enough. Stole a bunch of my buddy’s pour cause I liked this so much.

Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Festival 2010. This is the last thing from this fest that I can actually decipher notes from. Bright funky aroma. Lactic tartness and a bit of light cherry fruitiness. Softly funky with a little bit of light earthiness. Really soft and fruity. Intensely funky. A touch of vineous character. Very tasty.

Got to try this thanks to Dave S. Pours a really nice amber color with very little head. Smells fantastic, Oak, red wine, leather, plums, vinegar. Flavors are very nice and follow suit with the aromas. I wish i could drink this every day!

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2012
sampled at SAVOR...pours translucent brown. Fruity funky sour nose with a palate that’s very tart but also has a lot of berry to it. Particularly raspberry. Finish is tart and dry and lingering. Very good exmaple, IMHO, of what a sour should be.

Papsoe (25075) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Theis. Pours a cloudy opaque deep amber with an off-white head. Sweet and funky nose - sweet oak and barnyard. Medium body, brown sugar, rotten fruit and pleasant funky barnyard. And again a lovely oak character. A perfectly balanced and enjoyable Sour. 131212

Bottled. Dark amber coloured. Hazy. Almost no head. Aroma: Sourness, brett, grape, funk, leather. Flavour: citrus, brett, light barn, tart, light berries. Medium to full bodied. Ends refreshingly sour and grapy. Happy to have a bottle from sarro standing in my celler.

Dfonorow (1676) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
Dark red/brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is dominated by tart cherries and some other dark fruits. Sour funk, oak. Flavor is sour cherries at first but finishes with sweet cherry juice and oak. Tart, but not overpowering. No vinegar notes. Medium bodied, good carbonation.
