fiulijn (14516) - 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.

750ml bottle from Andersons on Bent Tree. Deep amber red pour with thin white ring of retention. Aroma are dry, vinegar, apple, berry, sherry, wood. Tastes are wood, berry, vinegar also. Sweet-tart, cherry, raspberry, root beer vibe, red wine, tobacco. Acidic. Moderately tart funky dry finish. Alcohol completely covered, no heat. Awesome, crazy drinkable. Wish it wasn’t so expensive.

mcberko (6419) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a hazy mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma reveals earthy musty notes and some vinegar. Flavour is thankfully more pleasing, with fruity vinegary notes, low acidity, and very subtle tartness. Very well-balanced, with just enough vinegariness and tartness. Very good stuff.

Renobob (635) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl #00276. grosse attaque sur l’acidité, le fruits rouge, le bois. Pas mon style mais produit bien fait.

Hazy dark amber beer, little pale tan head. Nose is pleasingly cider - wine like. Palate is smooth and semi dry, fine carbonation. Taste follows the nose and adds gueuzey sourness, a little on the acid side. Light dry finish. Interesting stuff and if it had been less acid I would have really liked it.

freretoc (685) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl #00276, couleur ambrée orangée, pas de mousse effervescence peu présente, au nez odeur vineuse vin blanc type chardonnay ou riesling très citronnée, en bouche grosse attaque sur la pomme verte à maturation, côté sucrée acide ultra bien équilibrée... Franchement une incroyable tuerie absolue !

Homer321 (1886) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2014
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 (403) - 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.

andrewje41 (426) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2014
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 (2184) - 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.

Coppered color with light head. Big aroma of red berries, vinegar and oak. Medium body & high complexity . Highly sour. Great beer.
