olsvammel (4121) - 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 (8530) - 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 (8547) - 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.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2015
Tap (TCBW15)
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.
