yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, glowing orange-amber beer with a small, beige head. The aroma is rather vinegar-ish, with some caramel notes, sour berries and cellar hints. Caramel, dried fruits, sour berries, some vinegar and lemon juice and a vinous touch in the flavor. Full to medium body, semi-tart and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish with sourness and berries. Pretty decent this one, but too one-dimensional, lacking some depth. 131123

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 15/20
Beerenberger (1414) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 The nose is wonderfully acetic with suggestiions of tart red fruit. A cloudy reddish-brown pour producing a small off-white head which quickly tranforms into a ring with moderate lacing. The pallet follows the nose - gloriously SOUR. Balsomic vinger with raspberries, sour cherries, and hints of grain. Slight alcohol warmth in the finish and aftertaste. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat of a slick mouthfeel. Overall, an excellant example of a sour beer. Very well crafted. (I was lucky to be at Sunrise Mini Mart on the right day to even get this beer! Thanks Ray.)

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2013
tap at max’s. shimmering chestnut, no head. Raspberry nose, acetone hints, moderate vinegar. Flavor stings, more vinegar, berry. Biting end reminiscent of lost abbey sinners with more fruit and acetic punch.
