Bottle from Hofstetten: Amber color, no head. Aroma is sourly, sour cherries, brett, vinegar, hints of green apples, barrel notes. Flavor follows aroma with more acid and vinegar notes. Sour dry end. To sour for me with to intensive vinegar notes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
