davidezdonz (312) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - SEP 23, 2016
A 375ml bottle from batch #5, bottled in May 2015, and poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a clear but dark burgundy reddish brown colour with a one finger beige head that had decent retention and left spotty lacing. Aromas full of fruity grape, red wine, blackberries and cherries. Lightly tart with hints of oak. Tastes sour and tart, fruity grape, cherry and red wine with a touch of lemon, oak and vanilla. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall nice, balanced and easy to drink.

TheJestersBeer (2391) - SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany brown, with a thin beige head. Complex, well developed aroma, brett, oak, very vinous, dark fruit, vanilla, cherries, caramel, coffee, toasted notes, cinnamon, blackberries. Bone dry, medium body, low bitterness, balanced CO2. The taste reflects the aroma to the max. Extremely complex, well balanced, with a very clean acidity that lingers on the palate. Ridiculously drinkable, easily one of the best non-Belgian sours I have ever had. (2016-09-03)

Creamy sour? Yes with barrel. Sour tang. Very strong tang. But nothing that is astonishing. At the brewery thin fading head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
