Bottle. Hazy yellow body with a small white steady head. Sour berries, fruit, acid, malt and oak in aroma. Lovely flavour of berries, oak, citric fruit, acid and light caramel. Flemish sourish. Creamy body. Great sour!

Poured from one of the supposedly six kegs available worldwide at The Lion’s Pride in Brunswick, ME! This is an interesting beer with sour and sweet elements. Cherry is the main flavor and aroma--it has both of the main flavor elements. It’s a medium bodied beer, but has a carbonation that makes it feel richer.

Muddy dark brown red ale with a small light brown head. Aroma isfruity and dry with hints of immature apples. Flavor is sour, fruity of green apples and with notes of vineagra. Remindes me of a belgian red ale.

Bottle thanks to some swiss chap that brought some awsome bottles to a random tasting at the rake. Alround rating: I like this rating and the chap that brought the bottles was interested by this responce: Tannin acidity off a plummy fruit character reminisant of a rioja reserva. Very good.

Tap @ OTH. Thanks Tony for putting this one on tap. Pours murky brown/orange, light to fizzy off white head. Aroma, lots of sour, funk and hints of wood. Flavors, sour, hints of fruits, tartness, barrel, light vinegar. Leaves a lot of prickly wood finish on the back palate. I was expecting a lot more sourness and this one just tasted great.

My Rating # 3300. Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, 2009. Pours cloudy brown with a small white bubbly head. Nose is deep and complex. Acetone, oak, berries, vanilla. Sweet and vinous with alcohol prickling the cheek. Heavy and extremely sippable. Tart and dry with a long lasting end. Loved it!

On tap @ Maxs. While both are enjoyable I liked the older version a bit better. Had with an 07. Still very complex, jsut not as sour and woody with that bigger body. More alcohol presence but still great.
