fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Cloudy amber color with red shades; medium sized compact head. The style is there; this year the aroma has more bread and feety impression (along with the usual malt, wood, fruit, light acetone), sweetish. Good body structure; semi-sweet malt flavor, with medium-sharp acidity, and some acetone; good fruity level; solid and complex; it has more sediment than the previous years.
Excellent as usual; the aroma is more elegant than the flavor.

Bottle shared at Bytepalace. Nose is tart cherry with lots of pie like character. Crusty, fruity. Light tartness with even some notes of rhubarb. very good.

barn0216 (395) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Caramel brown color. Fruity sour cider aroma. Funky lactose flavor, dry yet sweet as well. Hmmmm....hard to figure this one out. Just a little too sweet.

Draft pour. Pours a reddish orange with a sour, boozy, berry aroma. Nice blend of cherry, raspberry, and cherry flavor. Tart berry finish. Very nice sour ale. Sour flavor that sticks around. Good stuff.

Lukaduke (2045) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Draft @ Saint Bock. Pours a hazy rusty sienna color with a finger of gaseous khaki foam. Nice mix of cranberry, cherry, basement murk and some solid vinous acidity, cider vinegar, wet wood and lingering tart funk.

baraciisch (1729) - USA - JUN 21, 2014
Deep amber plum color... Aroma is fairly light, notes of dark fruits, cherries, caramel, funk... Flavor is out of this world, hit of vinegar, huge notes of dark cherry, berries, dark fruits, tartness and oak on finish... Amazingly complex, hint of tobacco... World class sour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Umeboshi aroma, bitter caramel. Pulpy plum flavor, liquor, oak, strong sour finish. Not my usual drink but a very well-crafted brew.

Taboada (280) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 5, 2014
Tasted at tap on 04/06/2014. Clear red brown colour with a big off white head. Aroma is sugar with dark and red fruits. Taste is high acid with red fruites, peaches and apples. Alcohol is high but well integrated in the taste. Taste is very intensive and, in my opinion, well balanced. Next one please!
