Bottle shared @ Borefts Pre-tasting. Clear amber color, small off-white head. Smell and taste some malts, some sourness but quite modest actually, wood, oak, very balanced. Nicely mellowed down sourness. Lovely.

Thanks Blake! Poured cloudy amber with a swirly beige head. The aroma picked up sour cherries and vinegar.. smelled very sour. The flavor found similar.. a touch metallic and vinegary.. more cherry on the back-end. Medium-bodied with a good feel and flow.. nice!

75cl bottle at home. Looks really good. Beer in the glass brownish, small head. Alcoholic aroma. Starts quite strong, some alcoholic notes. More and more dry and sourish. Some moldy-fruity notes of berries, maybe plum. Finish warming-malty, less sourish, still moldy. Not bad.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Bière très acide, vineuse sur le fruit rouge. Pointe de boisé. Bien faite.

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Flaska lagrad till 2014. Smak och doft av körsbär, vinäger, vita- och röda vinbär, trä med toner av russin. Syrlig, lagom sötma med fin beska. Kraftfull och bra balans på smakerna. Hade lätt kunnat lagras ytterligare år utan att skadas.

freretoc (1723) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl au Sherwood Pub (Nicorvo), couleur ambrée rousse, peu d’effervescence, pas de mousse, une belle attaque sur la vanille prégnance de la pomme continuité sur la poire et fin de bouche sur l’ananas, encore une tuerie.

Ratman197 (13432) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2014
750 ml green bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of caramel, sour cherry, vinous notes, oak, , vanilla and light bourbon. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of caramel, barnyard funk, sour citrus, oak and vinous notes with a crisp dry lingering tart finish.

Bottle. Nice funky lambic-y aroma. Initially this is fruity tartness, but there is an unexpected depth of flavor. Notes of raisins, fruit, vanilla. A very pleasant finish. Abv is hidden yet warms you to the core. Amazing.

From the bottle marked 00276. For my 1,500th review I thought I would try a limited edition. The pour looks more like wine than beer with a reddish hue and virtually no head to speak of. The aroma has all the tart and red grape qualities of a sour ale with the faintest of malts. It is really sour on the nose. Medium body. The taste has an overwhelming sour grape character to it along with a sharp bite at the end that makes one wince (especially if you are not a regular sour ale drinker like me). For the style it seems to be a perfect fit.
