Saeglopur (1339) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 21, 2015
From bottle at CBF Wien.
Brownish-amber, hazy body, with almost no head.
Aroma of sour cherries, barrel, overripe fruits, vinegar, some sour berries, some red apples.
Taste follows this, with more barrel notes and some leather.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes sour, wooden, leathery, fruity.

Very nice. Lovely sour fruits, combined with barrel notes. Well hidden alcohol. Not among my favourite sour ales, but really enjoyable nonetheless.

scirtes (236) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle, cuvee 2012. Pours murky red with small whitish head. Strong aroma of cherries with distinct Brettanomyces notes. Moderately sweet with well marked acidity at the same time. Lots of tannins in the aftertaste. Lively carbonated. Quite complex beer, maybe a bit to sweet but still very interesting.

mateuszk (1121) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Draught. Ruby in colour, no head. Cherries and red berries in front on low level, then very sour, acidic with lots of vinegar, very harsh. Light sweetness on start. If you like vinegar it is beer for you, if not there are better sour beers on the market.
