potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2011
OLD GABF rating. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel, citrus, and bourbon. It tastes wine like though despite the look and its roasty caramel, vanilla flavors. The vinous character comes with cherry, lacto, and lighter citrus, and grapes all covered up in bourbon. YES!

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
In short: An over-the-top sweet, sour, boozy, oaky dark sour ale. Acceptable sipper
How: Bottle 750ml shared at RBSG 2011 grand tasting
The look: Cloudy dark burgundy body topped by a medium beige head
In long: The strange intense nose is full of barrels, funky oak and sour fruits. Taste has a lot of oak barrels is, tart cherries wrapped in chocolate, lots and lots of tannins, plenty of sugars, too much booze. Low carbonation. This in an intense beer that is pushing the envelop in too many directions, very sour, very sweet, very tannic, very boozy. Not a bad sipper at all, but as a Cascade sour this is a bit of a letdown. I wish I could suffer from bubonic plague instead of alcoholism, or any other disease you don’t get yelled at for having.

IluvatarMilan (270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2011
Red to dark brown opaque beer. Upon sniffing the beer an immediate sweet and sour aroma hits you. Whilst not being a lambic this is a superior beer. Vanilla, spices, cinnamon. More like a complex port wine.

Benzai (8212) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2011
Nice dark brown color with a little red glow coming through. Almost no head. Sour smell. Taste sour, wine, herbs, wood and port but even though it’s very complex it’s still very nicely balanced. Good mouthfeel.

Countbeer (4423) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle: Small tan head on top of a dark almost black colored beer. Smell sour, malts, hops, grains, sweets, yeast and wood. Taste is a well balanced mix of nice sour, malts, sticky malts, light sweet, bitter, nice fruity bitter, light spicy, wood and a hint of liquorice. A nice dark sour aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Great beer.
