Franckg (1179) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2015
Robe rouge pâle avec un léger col de mousse blanc. Arômes de jus de citron , cerises, chêne, alcool. Grosse présence des levures bretts. Très acide au nez. En bouche, beaucoup plus doux. Cerises, citron, pomme verte, essence de chêne. Belle rondeur et chaleur par l’alcool. Le côté acide se veut plus modéré à mesure que le liquide se réchauffe. Bien fruitée en général. Très bonne biere.

33 cl flaske fra Sterk Avonderkoop, Amsterdam. Friske, oksiderte, gjær- og bærnoter og fatpreg blant duftene. Fin blanding av vinsyre og eddiksyre. Gir vann i munnen. God fylde. Ingen karbonering. Deilig.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of cherries and a strong sour aroma, more like vinegar or to be honest "lacknafta". Similar taste. Very acetic and chemical. The sourness is just to much and to harsh. I love sour beer and so does my father but none of us could finish our samples when we shared the bottle.

DocLock (9984) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid deep brown with minimal head. Nose is intense tartness, vinous fruit, cherry, oak, heat. Tastes incredibly smooth, with big fruit, cherries, grapes, malt, lactic acid, wood, tannins. I even get some cinnamon/nutmeg in this. Smooth finish with evolving complexity as it warms.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Tasted during Nepenthia. Tap sample. Beautiful hazy sort of crimson / brick / red color. Minimal head. Bigger sour taste, kind of floral, a touch of cherry. Mild sour bite in the finish. Light slick texture. Very light carbonation. Medium-plus body. Bit too sour for me, but a nice one to sip on and try.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2015 Tap (TCBW15) (6:4:5:2:9=2.6)
Massive sour aroma, woody and acidic. Over-the-top acidic palate. Quite acetic - it actually burns my pipes. Looked a nice red though. And the cherry aspects were very pleasant. I like sours, but this is too much of a good thing - it’s been pushed too far and has failed. I never want aceticity in a drink.
Rerate: 330ml bottle - shared by ElviraS - thanks! (6:3:6:3:13=3.1)
Woody, sweaty, sour aroma. Apricot, wood glue, sour taste. Ditto finish. No alcohol obvious. Aceticity lower than before, less harsh. Fresh and crisp.

330 ml bottle at Hasse, thanks Rolf! Cloudy reddish amber with no head. Aroma of vinegar, ripe fruit, apricot, strawberry and sweet malts. Taste is rich and creamy, apricots, vinegar, ripe fruits, dried apricot and some sweet fruity malts. Really nice!
