4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, approximately 3 years old, shared thanks to Tim and Rachel! Gusher, pours a murky brown with ring of tan bubbly head and light lacing. Aroma funky sour fruits, lactic esters. Taste is woah, sour out of the gate, then a hint of chocolate before it goes to acetyl, then back to sour and dark fruits. This is pretty darn good, bubbly and effervescent but still substantial.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with drowland et al at Kickbacks. Slow gusher! It pours cloudy deep red-brown with a thick beige head. The nose is dank wood, tanginess, red grape, red wine vinegar, candy, mustiness, mould and leather. The taste is earthy, vinous, red grape, tangy cherry, bitter-sweet aspect, red wine vinegar, leather and wet leaf. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a bit too much vinegar aspect, but a solid tangy sour ale nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Smelling of disinfectant (acetic acid, ethanol, ethyl acetate) and red vinegar.
Appearance: A hazy brown beer, an off-white head leaving little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Some upfront pure sugar sweetness, then the acetic acid and some alcohol.
Palate: Little carbonation, soft with small bubbles, a light dry finish.
Overall: When I read the above it sounds much worse than it is, sour chemical nuances, but not really bad.
Note: Bottle at De Klomp. Reviewed 2011-10-30.
