ruigo (1091) - PORTUGAL - DEC 3, 2013
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a reddish brown colour with a minimal off-white head. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more sweet than bitter, a bit unbalanced. Overall, a nice beer.

I didn’t like it at all, the sour flavour doesn’t do it for me. It’s a well made beer, I’m just not a fan.

IndianaRed (2416) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle redish brown pour with a thin quick white fizzy head. Woody sour aroma, cidery and slight vinegar flavors. I like the flanders/sour browns but this one was a little off. Strange bitter possibly oxidized flavor.

75cl bottle from el corte ingles. Color is dark brown to red. Head is thin. Body is medium carbonated. Aroma is winish, wood, malt and caramel. Bit unbalanced...

On tap @Cimmeria, bottle @manyplaces. Dark copper, topped by off white head, some persistance, some alcing. Light body, lively carbonation, some crispy in texture. Taste is more into the sweet side, subtle sour, but balanced.

Iphonephan (3248) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2013
From a 33 cl bottle shared in Avon NC thanks to Ryan. Pours a clear reddish cola with a thin off white head. Nutty aroma. Sweet flavor masking an underlying tart grape flavor, with a hint of oak. Sweet and tart finish.

I prefer the blond one but this brown one is not disgusting. No surprise, no special taste

Great beer, a strange mix of tastes and odors, resembles to a wide variety of fruits and resins.

Theydon_Bois (8630) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle at home, from ???, 08/10/13. Reddish amber brown with a thin light beige head that dissipates edgeward. Nose is bready malts, cardboard, stale biscuits, light fruit tang. Taste comprises berry fruits, light sugar, brown bread dough, fruit cake, vinous wood, tartened blackcurrant jam, light fruit balsams, picks up nicely from the bland nose. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry slightly tarte wooded finale. Ok sour brown, picks up fairly well after a subdued nose.
