Prufrockstar (1528) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2015
This treat was shared by Nick - thanks! Clear ruby pour, no head. Aroma: balsamic, brown sugar, mix of both tart and maraschino cherries, oak, and leather. Taste is quite acetic; also quite sweet. Hints of soy sauce and raisin. Full body, slick texture, very little carbonation.

Franckg (527) - 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.

olsvammel (4237) - 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 (8601) - 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.
