Hermod (3861) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Tap @TCBW15. Light red/brown, thin thin white head. Vinegar, glue, tart aroma. Cherries. Whoa, this is hardcore stuff. Flavor has tartness, cherries, vinegar, woody notes. Sticky. Too vinegary for me.

Silvan7 (802) - Samarate, ITALY - MAR 5, 2015
bottle @ Il Barbaresco, LEgnano. Colore rosso rubino,, velata, schiuma finissima beige.poco persistente. Aroma fruttato frutti rossi (amarene) aceto, legno - vaniglia, vino passito. Acida abboccata, poco amara. intensamente fruttata. Spigolosa, calda, poco corposa, tattilmente quasi appiccicosa. Equilibrata ed armonica. per lo stile!

maneliquor (3379) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This is impressive. A filthy dirty pour is the only off putting about it I would say. It really reminds me of Rodenbach Caractere. Very dark plum and sour cherry feel all round with plenty of acidity and earthiness. More sour on the nose than in the taste but that is not to say it isnít sour because it really has a nice dose going on. Almost muscat like in itís dark fruit juiciness. Bloody great

visionthing (3276) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2015
33cl bottle (bb: 2050!) at Crowbar, Oslo. Hazy reddish without much head to speak of. Fruity and slightly funky aroma with wooden notes, sour cherries, balsamic vinegar and hints of sour apples. Moderate sweet with a moderate acidity and nice fruity flavours. Some vinous notes. Interesting and quite delicious.

Mesjasz (146) - Lodz, POLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Hazy red/amber color, almost no head. Aroma is wine vinegar and sour cherries. Taste is very sour and tart. Level of this sourness burning in throat. Flavor is sour cherries, vinegar, oak with tart fruit aftertaste. When warmer is little bit sweet. Medium body, low carbonation. This beer is sick ;)

gyllenbock (5343) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy amber/light brownish with a minimal head. Tart aroma of cherries, oak and some vinegar. Similar taste, also some light notes of spices. The finish was tart and quite dry.

Vestergaard (669) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2015
Tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. Pours a murky red/brown with no head. Aroma is extremely sour and tart with cherries and marzipan. Taste is crazy sour as well. Cherries. Almost a burning tartness that brings sweat to your forehead. One of the most acidic beers iíve ever had. Not much else to say. Little too much, even for me!

Bov (10117) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2015
from Erzbierschof - cloudy reddish-brown beer with a fast disappearing foam; a Rodenbach-like nose ! Sour cherries, vinegar, plums, notes of Amaretto and wood; full-bodied, solidly sourish, subtle and lively carbonation; very dry and sour finish, long cherryish notes with hints of prunes, Amaretto and berries - Jvar was right (of course): itís a huge beer !

jlruthven (583) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Tap. Pours murky almost-red, not much head to speak of. Huge tart cherry nose, oak, brett funk and vinegar. Wet wood, cherry pie, yogurt, lactic notes, refreshing dry finish. World class.

abergdahl (89) - SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2015
Aroma of cherry and ... Funk...the appearance is a disaster, looks like dish water, or worse... Ouch Luckily it tastes better, not very beer like.., not fresh as a creik, but in that direction, but heavy somehow. Sour, sweet, long finish.. Not bad but not great
