UXO (111) - CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a hazy golden orange with a fat finger of frothy white head diminishing gradually to a dense cap half that thickness, spotty lacing. Nose is sour and fruity, grapes and vinegar, musty oak and leather. Taste is similar, opening with tart plums and cherries, giving way to a mild barnyard brett funk, before finishing dry but with a lingering sourness. Mouth feel is crisp, light- to medium-bodied, with moderate persistent carbonation. This is a very pleasant and complex sour, crisp and not too sweet, with a very fruity cider character. Hard to believe there’s no fruit in this, and it makes me wonder how fruity the kriek will be! The tartness could be a little sharper, providing a little more direction the the complexity, but otherwise excellent.

At Moeder LAmbic. Very inviting fruity aroma. Fresh lambic character, the lambic yeast has consumed all the sugar, but there are som herbs left from the other beer in the blend. Fascinating.

Trappist1 (420) - Diest, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2014
@ZBF. blond amber color (which was a surprise for me), sour fruity in the nose. taste is very bitter, hoppy, floral. Finish is one long stretch, very nice sourness, great "old bruin?"

Gerbeer (1662) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with moderate head. Aromas of feet, basement, crabapples, and sour candy. Flavors of green apples, quince, lemonade, and grass, with a lingering plastic note. OK.

CapFlu (4458) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
I don’t know how many times I’ve passed this on the shelf thinking I’d already tried it, but it’s a solid sour so why not give it another go. Pours a surprisingly small white foamy head atop a clouded, deep amber body. Nose of tart apples and dry white wine. Flavour is highly tart, sweet apple undertones. Not a lot of complexity and fairly even keeled. Above average. 750ml bottle purchased from The Strath in Victoria.

Lilja (1527) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Med ölföreningen, smak och doft av syrliga äpplen, toner av vinäger, trä, örter och bete. Syrlig, jämn och fin med fatkaraktär. Vintage 2010.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2014
2010 Vintage, från SB, drucken med systembolaget. Nära en geuze i doft och smak. Aningen mer mjölksyra, lite större sötma, stor, men lite rundare mjukare syra. Annars stora likheter med stall, syrliga äpplen, citrus, vete, trä. Hur som helst riktigt gott.
