Marduk (3636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
Tap @TCBW2015. Cloudy chestnut color. No head, some expected. Vinegar, sharp sourness, some fruits and red currant in aroma. Vinegar, sour as hell, soft caramel and some sweetness in taste. HP brown sauce in aftertaste. As not big sour fan this beer is madness to me.

Vignale (2421) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2015
Flaska från SB. Stor lakto/vinäger syrlighet. Kanske aningen mycket bärig vinäger som dock till viss del matchas av en laktosötma med lite vanilj. Moreller, fuktigt trä, lite söt tobak. Fina smaker men lite mycket vinäger.

Lilja (2036) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av äppelvinäger, röda bär, främst körsbär, jord, trä, mjölkbakterier. Mycket syrlig, lagom sötma och lätt beska.

laiti (6837) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Draught @ Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015
Aroma is tart and sour with vinegar, acidic tones and some kriek-like sourness. Also earthy tones. Flavour is very acidic with vinegar, earthy tones and sour cherry juice. So sour and acidic that it affects drinkability.

Hermod (3963) - 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 (823) - 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 (3415) - 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 isn’t sour because it really has a nice dose going on. Almost muscat like in it’s dark fruit juiciness. Bloody great

visionthing (3427) - 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 (190) - 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 (5668) - 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.
