Reimer96 (1639) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a murky rusty reddish brown with very little head. Looks like unfiltered cherry juice. Aroma is sour cherries with vanilla and oak. Taste is sour cherries, oak with some dry fruits. Sourness lingers throughout the body and completely hide the abv. Excellent sour beer that is very complex and keeps on giving.

xfbbx (2) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012 does not count
Special ordered bottle from Alberta distributor. Shared with my wife. Aroma: Sour, Funky, Wood, Dates and Burnt Sugar. Flavor: Tart, really really tart, apple skin, grape skin, pineapple, berry, wood. Mouth-feel: Flat, thin, astringent. Lingering flavor that at times "bursts" in my mouth. Made me think of "Wareheads" candies that I might have eaten as a kid. My first bottle I was somewhat overwhelmed by how unusual this beer is. I had the 2nd bottle a week later and really enjoyed it!

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2012
0.33 l bottle. Hazy brown color. Sweet and acidic aroma with strawberry, vinegar, toffee and cherries. The flavor is pretty much the same with umami notes and balsamic vinegar. Full bodied. Balanced sweetness and acidity, good sour ale.
