750 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a cloudy amber brown colour with a white head. Aroma is very tart with sour berries, caramel and some bread-like notes. Flavour of sweet caramel, tart berries, salt, bread and some herbal notes. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes strong on tart berries and some herbs. Nicely balanced.

BiddleBrau (1078) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2013
On tap at Memphis taproom. Murky wood brown with decent head. Sour oaky nose. Milder sour profile candy sweetness fuller palate, definitely a twist on the style. Not quite as clean as others I’ve had.

Straight from Switzerland... Thanks Nate! Pours a deep red amber with minimal head. Smells of funky apples and musty cellar. Taste is apples, vinegar, and tart funk. Good carbonation.

Kosmokrator (761) - ITALY - MAR 12, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Alla spina. Color mogano con sottile schiuma beige; aroma acidulo, dolciastro e pungente con sentori di spezie, frutta candita, vino bianco, lievito e zucchero caramellato. Gusto agro-dolce, ampio, complesso e ben strutturato, note vinose, acetiche, fruttate con un finale debolmente luppolato dove si avvertono maggiormente sentori più legnosi e "asciutti" al palato. Birra complessa e perfettamente bilanciata, eccezionale.
