Draft. Poured a hazy reddish copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart fruit flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s Stinky Cheese & Sour Beer event. Looks alright; not really carbonated though. A cloudy brownish orange with razor-thin white lacing. Smells tart and funky in a Flanders-ish kind of way. Cherry as well. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer that (much like most of their beers) could be much better if it were adequately carbonated.

after4ever (6736) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Draft at sb. Pours a murky dark brown with noo real head or lace. Still. Bright vinous and balsamic nose. Creamy medium body, no carb. Juicy blackberry, cherry, minerals, balsamic, and blood orange on the mid palate. Long tangy vinous berry finish.

Kinz (3527) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Draft at Mekong. I’m not going to do this justice here. Clear reddish light brown, very slight head. Aroma is funk and dark cherry. Flavor matches, but there is an amazing complexity here that I simply can’t capture. Touch of vanilla, stone fruit, and a certain richness to the sourness, which is somewhat acetic and balsamic vinegar in nature. Great stuff, just loved it. Could have smelled it alone for an hour.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Stovner( on order), Oslo. Coppered color, some foam. Aromas of red berries: high intensity. Also autumn leaves, some malt. Medium body & high complexity . High sourness & some bitterness. Excellent ! Best Swiss Beer I've tasted so far! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Murky deep amber with a minimal ring of cream froth. Nose is dried fruit, acidic, wood, tart, cheese, and funky. Great on the palate, sour, tart, wood, basement, acidic, fruit, and delicious.

Foffern (1441) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle at home. Is unclear and has a brown color, and a small, off-white head. Aroma is typically acidic and sharp with touches of oak, juniper berries, forest, some barnyard and hints of tea. The taste is more sweet, but still has a good touch of sour berries. Mouth feel is full-bodied and silky, with a light berry bitterness. A real complex, compact and balanced sour ale. Great with food, fantastic alone.

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