Pours golden with an amber hue. Smells sour immediately. This was a friend's who had chilled the bottle. We let it sit for a few minutes before partaking. Exceptional. Masks the 11% with ease. Strange taste that hits the back of your palette, which apparently is common among Swiss sours. Sour profile increased as it warmed.

czar (5549) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
pours clear bright ruby with a very nice small white cap showing some retention and lacing. balsamic vinegar - fairly present acetic, sweet nutty-fruity-caramel maltiness, berry-like fruitiness, slightly perfumey esters, peppery, gently woody - some vanilla tones - nice barrel use. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, lightly acetic, astringent, sweetish and grassy-spicy finish. not overly complex, but tasty with a nice barrel-ageing.

Enjoyed on tap at Moeder Lambic. This sort of beer does not usually float m y boat but this has a lovely oakiness too it. Nice sourness, slight bit of chocolate on the finish. Very drinkable...might order another. First Swiss beer I’ve had. Better than their cheese!

Swaroga (1705) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2014
75cl butelka. OCZY : Piwo jest mętne. Ma ciemno-pomarańczowy kolor wpadający w brąz. Piwo słabo się pieni. Podczas wlewania widać kilka dużych bąbelków. Dopiero po wlaniu, gaz wyłania cienką warstwę piany o kolorze szarym. NOS : bardzo bogate aromaty owocowe. Gotowanych i świeżych owoców. Wiśnie, gruszka, winogrona, jabłka, ananas, porzeczki czarne, truskawka .... Trudno wszystkie wymienić. Mocną nutą są aromat tarty i budyniu. To nie wszystko. Zapach jest wytrawny i nosi intensywna nutę drewna. Alkohol. USTA : lekko gazowane o oleistej teksturze i średnio gęstej konsystencji. Jest dosyć słodkie jak kompot. Ale to tylko początek. Zanim przełknę, piwo zaczyna kwaśnieć. Wystarczy oddech by aromat dorysował do smaku wyżej wypisane owoce. Do tego dochodzi lekka cierpkość i wytrawność. Aromaty towarzyszące są te od drewna i pestek owocowych. Piwo nie jest gorzkie. Posmak jest średnio kwaśny ale wciąż świetnie skomponowany wraz z słodko-owocowym charakterem tego piwa. Trochę przypomina wiśnie z kompotu i drewno. ODCZUCIA : jest to tak zwany kwach. Nie jestem fanem kwaśnych piw ale to jest wystarczająco bogate i słodkie by nie trzeba było dosładzać miodem. Jest to zdecydowanie jedne z lepszych brettow jakie piłem. Równowaga miedzy słodkim a kwaśnym smakiem jest wzorowe. Super. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 7/10

ThirstyBird (2094) - 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!
