Flaska @ god vän, tack Frode. Smutsbrunröd vätska utan nämnvärt skum. Syrlig, bärig doft av körsbär och tydliga fattoner av ek. Inledande smörklick i smaken som gör att njutningen tvärdör. Syrlig endimensionell smak utan något annat. Här händer det inte mycket.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
Tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Dark chestnutty colour. Nose... fckn nice! Wood. Peanuts. Autumn fruits going off. Barnyard. Apple cider. Almonds. Tastes extremely sour but it’s nicely balanced by the fruity sweetness. Even though in the finish the extreme tartness is a bit over the top really. Body and carbonation medium. Can’t finish the 100 ml. Vinegar notes. Like chewing on vinegar-infused oak chips. With sour apples. A terribly enjoyable sipper... I love it, I hate it, I love it...

Marduk (6129) - Reval, 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 (3255) - 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 (2666) - 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 (8031) - 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 (6325) - 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 (1081) - 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 (3483) - 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
