Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Bottled 75cl. Ordered from www.erzbierschof.ch. Murky orange with practically no head. Complex, vinous, strong woody components, slight carbonation. Warming sensation on the swallow. There is a nice late acidic bite to this beer. Dry finish. A masterpiece.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2011
Tap @ ACBF 2011. A hazy red/brown colored beer with no head. The aroma of sour, wood and dough, with fruits. The taste is dry, sour, some wood with old fruits hints of sweet with bitter. The aftertaste is dry sour and some bitter notes.

suprchunk (2607) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Draft at Moeder Lambic. A dark toffee/caramel color with some ruby highlights. Decently sized off-white head that left a little lacing behind. Aromas reminiscent of vinegar, malt and honey. Not so much honey, but a certain sweetness in the nose that reminds me of it. Taste is pretty tart vinegar. There is a malted backbone that is present, but the sour is the main actor. Decent tart/sour mouthfeel that lasts well after swallowing. Good beer.

thomat (2528) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2011
Dark, reddish brown with no head. Fruity with acidic notes. Malt, sour, acidic and fruit. Full body with a long, acidic finish.

Brandman (2417) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Semihazy red brown body, no head at all. Aroma has lots of things, sourness, berries, pink bubblegum, acidic maltiness. Flavour has straigh acidic, apples, vinegar. Quite thick body for such acidic beer. Very nice sour.

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2011
Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Amber colored brew. Very sour, but not in a bad way. Very drinkable.

craftycarl21 (2295) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Dark brown pour with a small head. Nose and flavor both hold a really brilliant combination of sweet deep malt presence like plum and raisin, woody acidity from the red wine barrels, nice balanced sourness, and that phenomenal crisp tannic dryness from the white wine wood. Really an impressive beer.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Shared by Reg. Pours a clear orange-red color with no head. Aroma of vinegar, cherry, wine and alcohol. Sour with a bit of sweetness. Sticky texture. Pretty good!

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Hazy, ruddy brown pour with a thin, off white head. Aroma is Full of tart fruit and vinous notes, sweet malt, light, crusty bread, earthy funk and fallen leaves. Flavor is tart and funky up front, with some earthiness, vinous notes, dark fruit, buttery and lightly toasty oak, candi sugar sweetness, vanilla and a nice light booziness. Medium body, sicky, chewy entry, with a gradual fade into a slightly dry and pleasantly pucker inducing tart finish. Pretty freaking delicious, I have never had a sour with an ABV this high, and I have to say I enjoyed it. Like an earthy quad with a nice tart backbone.

Westmeister (2093) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Another big boy bottle shared by the host EricTeusink. I owe you man. The beer poured amber//brown with some sediment and no head. Aroma was sour cherries, vinous, dark caramel. Taste was sour dark cherries, wood, caramel malts, old red wine. The finish was a bit muddled tartness with a rather large oak component. Pretty nice and a treat drinking the 2010 brew. Perhaps just a bit past its prime.
