DrSilverworm (6013) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Taste from the very end of a 750ml bottle at brew3crew’s house-warming party. Maybe 1oz. Hazy darker orange color. Thin off-white head. Dot or two of lace. Great, tart, sour apricot smell,s one apple. Good moderate sour taste, light sweet. Medium body. Very light carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Fantastic wild ale, judging from the single sip I got.

_angst_ (2590) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Bottle received in trade. Thank you rfraga7! Pours tiny hazy reddish dark wooden brown with a rather small frothy and fizzy offwhite head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sour and vinous with grains, moist wood, red wine, damp hay, moist moss, lemon juice, dark grapes, barnyard, sour milk, raspberries, blackberries and hints of red wine vinegar. Taste is sour and tannic with dark bread, lemon juice, raisins, damp hay, moist wood, tar, moist soil, dark grapes, grapefruit rinds, horse blanket, barnyard, sour milk and hints of red wine vinegar and raspberries. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, tannic astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sour and vinous with dark bread, lemon juice, red wine, barnyard, dark grapes, moist soil, moist wood, grapefruit rinds, raspberries, raisins and hints of red wine vinegar. Refreshing, vinous and surprisingly complex. Take your time and enjoy...

Going through some old notes. This one was from Maduro in Madison, the day before the Great Taste of the Midwest. Hazy reddish pour. Tart nose. Acetic and lactic taste. Oak is prominent. Tart and still a bit sweet.

bartlebier (1530) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2013
Tap sampler, Bell’s Eccentric Café, 31/viii/13. Aroma of vindgar and vanilla, taste of oaked fruit vinegar, a lemonade fruitiness, grapes and red berries. Nice and surprisingly authentic wild ale, leaning heavily towards a mellower Rodenbach or a more straightforward Gouden Band. Has some complexity, but lacks the arresting depth of its Belgian examples. Nevertheless jumped out from the never-ending complimentary flight and demanded its time.
