375 ml bottle. Batch #4. 11/2014. Courtesy of tiong. Thanks so much! Reddish brown color with a tiny off-white head. Sourness, red berries, brett, some sweetness and some darkness in the aroma. The flavor is sour... really sour... with red berries, tartness and dryness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled 11/2014 Batch 4 - Pours dark reddish brown with a small bubbly head. Aroma of berries, tartness, some funky yeast, sourness, oak and wood. Taste is woody, oaky and heavy with berries and mild sourness. Finish is sweetish, woody, oaky and funky with loads of berries, some sourness, oak, wood and vinous notes. Interesting, quite heavy on berries and sweetness.

bubbleflubber (2035) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2015
On draught at the brewery, this pours clear brownish-prune into the glass with a light soapy head that leaves trace suds lacing. The nose is of unripened berries and stone fruit. Under-ripened cherries, blackberries and cranberries hit a lingering sour finish. The palate is extremely complex, lively and juicy, and makes for a hugely successful wild sour noir! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Saeglopur (1043) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 13, 2015
375 ml bottle, 11/2014, from Craft Bier Fest Linz.
Dark copper, brownish body, with a small, sparkling, dissipating, beige head.
Delicious aroma of oak, vanilla, sweet and sour berries, apples, funk, subtle vinegar.
Taste is fresh, sour, dry, tart, with oak, barnyard, sour berries, sour and sweet apples, wine, ripe fruits, some vanilla, subtle leather.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonaton.
Finishes smooth, medium sour, quite dry, also a bit sweet, fruity, wooden, slightly leathery.

Tasty! Very fresh, with a quite strong, but well balanced sourness and lovely oak notes. Drinks surprisingly easy. Enjoyed the diverse, complex nose even a bit more though. Overall among the best beers of this style I’ve had so far, really pleasant.
