Opaque dark brown beer, tiny pale tan head, short lived. Mildly sour nose. Crispy palate. Dark malts in the background play to a kind of Flemish style of sourness. Like Duchesse Du Bourgogne but toned down slightly and all the better for it. Smooth fruits and a touch of vinegar. Smooth finish.

thanks Gnosis for the nice extra!! bottle poured into a paper solo cup (lol) in my company lunch room....dark brown with a HUGE tan pillow like head. This one was a gusher, wow, didnt expect to see volcanic action. smell was sour, and so was the taste. It had a nice funk with some vinegar notes. slight maltiness, but vinegar was prominent

Palme (3013) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2012
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one has a massive massive fluffy bubbly head on top of a near murky dark plum-red body. The aroma is light tart-sour with clear vinegar and wood. Some near chocolate thing blended with lingonberries and sweet red berries. Really nice! The flavor has cherries, red currants, blueberries, vinegar, sour gooseberries, dry lingonberies and red wine vinegar. What a specimen! Really tasty! 27.07.2012

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Thanks to BeerBaby for this one! Pours clear very dark brown with garnet highlights. Very foamy tall, long-lasting off-white head. Tart, sour aroma. Balsamic vinaigrette and spoiled apples. The flavor is sour and acetic. I don’t care for the way the sourness finishes on the tongue. This needs a bit more malt sweetness to balance it out for my tastes.

Bottle 750ml @ ClubGonzo
Pours cloudy deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, vinegar, acetone, caramel and fruits. Taste is light to medium sweet and meidum sour with a long sour, acetone, fruity and dry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle - RBAG - Thanks for the share Tony! Thanks for hosting as well! Pours deep murky tawny/brown, thick and persistent tan head, decent lacing. Nose is tart with winter fruit, brandy, cheese raisin. Flavours of tart raisin, funk, quite tart and very vinous, but just didn’t gel for me. A decent sour, but I wouldn’t go too far out of my way to snag a bottle for myself.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A huge, light beige head forms over an unclear, dark amber body. Rather berry-sour aroma, with some roasted malts, a touch of caramel and some vinegar hints. Dry, effervescent and sourish on the palate. Really, really soft. Some caramel, but mostly sourish berries in the flavour. Vinegar hints too. Lasting finish. Tasteful, easy drinkable, but not overly complex. 120831

DuffMan (6168) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2012 Summer Session. Lightly cloudy chestnut brown body with a fizzy off-white lively head. Aroma is musty barnyard, dark fruits, and lactic sourness. Palate is softly sour, balancing flavours of dark fruits with under-ripe berries. Nice lactic acidity, but a little gassy.
