One2remeber (237) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle 2011. Dark, murky brown with amber/orange hues. Absolutely no head. Very high acidity, vinegar. Tart, cherries. Reminiscent oak character of Fat Grapes winery, French oak barrels. Like your smelling the inside of a barrel. Taste is very unique, taste of juicy cherry pie, cherry filling. Not relatively tart, chewy, delicately sweet with a soft sourness, two flavors blend beautifully.

Geiserich (3905) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle from Hofstetten: Amber color, no head. Aroma is sourly, sour cherries, brett, vinegar, hints of green apples, barrel notes. Flavor follows aroma with more acid and vinegar notes. Sour dry end. To sour for me with to intensive vinegar notes.

Saeglopur (1438) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 21, 2015
From bottle at CBF Wien.
Brownish-amber, hazy body, with almost no head.
Aroma of sour cherries, barrel, overripe fruits, vinegar, some sour berries, some red apples.
Taste follows this, with more barrel notes and some leather.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes sour, wooden, leathery, fruity.

Very nice. Lovely sour fruits, combined with barrel notes. Well hidden alcohol. Not among my favourite sour ales, but really enjoyable nonetheless.
