BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy, white head, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt -grain, hay, straw-, light hops -herbs-, average yeast -horse blanket, barnyard, earth- with notes of cherry and medicine. Light bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation, and a sour finish. Average duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and sourness.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Slightly hazy gold color, big white head. Aroma of vinegar or cider. Sweetish taste with sour finish, an interesting balance. Good example of the style.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Pours a beautiful clear golden amber with a decent fluffy white head. The strong, fierce aroma is more like a cider or a brandy than a beer. Flavor is quite strong, mainly fruity with some malty undertones. It goes down the pipes like a tiger on angel dust - fierce, edgy and sharp. Not for the faint of heart!

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - DEC 5, 2008
Hazy orange with a thick white head. Fruity, cellary, some woody bretta. Starts quite sweet malty developing in a superb mellow tart fruitiness with a cellar dry finish.
