ThirstyBird (1181) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2014
Thanks to do miens @RBBWG14!! Pours a hazy caramel color with an off white head. The noise is citrus and acidic. The taste is a balance of tart sourness and nice fruitiness. The body is medium and effervescent carbonation. Great stuff!

On tap 18.01.2014 @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas Brussels. Pours a deep amber slightly hazy body with a medium off-white creamy head. Aroma: vanilla, oak, bit dark malt, apple vinegar, and wood tanines sourness. Medium body Taste is again woord, mild apple vinegar, little caramel and grains in the back. Very smooth and enjoyable sour ale; could be in the Flemish Red category. FANTASTIC !

zizzybalubba (1316) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2014
On tap at The Birch (Norfolk, VA) during the 2nd Annual 43 Hours Of Dark. Reddish-orange pour with a short and bubbly off-white head. Aroma of soy, apple cider vinegar, and oak. Any misgivings from the initial aroma are quickly put to rest as the flavor is outstanding. Tart cherry and oak are primarily noted. Certainly sour but somewhat approachable for this style. A great sour ale.
