Countbeer (5981) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle: Small white foamy lacing on top of a hazy orange beer. Smell mushrooms, wood, sour, light spicy and wheaty and something port-a-like.  Taste is a lovely and very well balanced sour ale.

mcberko (13227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
750mL bottle, pours hazy dark orange with a white head. Aroma of sour apples, other sour fruits, yeast, and a potent vinous quality. Flavour is quite complex, with sour fruits and dry vinous qualities, drhy apple and a slight sour finish. Extremely well-balanced and very enjoyable (especially considering this isn’t normally a preferred style of mine).

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Orange gold pour with a foamy white head. Funky aroma with some fruit and leather. Flavor is funky more than it is sour. Some vinegar and lemon come through. Really very good.

omhper (22986) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2010
Bottled, thanks Danko! Cloudy golden, lively head. Tart citric nose. Lemon and barnyard. Medium-full body, spritzy rounded mouthfeel. Honey and caramel with notes of butter under the funk. Mildy warming. Intense and really tasty.

ContemplateBeer (1967) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Aroma of oak, tart apple, sour cherry. Appearance is cloudy orange\yellow body with white head, great lacing. Flavor matches the nose; very dry and mouth puckering. Palate is bubbly. Very good and interesting.

Che figata la Cuvée De Ranke ebbene sì mi mancava; abbiamo guardato Life of Brian dei Monty Python, film pieghevole.

weihenweizen (3012) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Refrigerated bottle poured into a glass. Pours a deep hazy golden with medium off-white head. Aroma is sour, good carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is sour apple, sharop tart lemon, acidic, and some vinegar. Ok, but I don’t really like it.

teorn88 (6036) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2010
75cl bottle. 33cl bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with a big off-white head. Aroma is vinegary and sour at first but this quickly changes as the fruitiness comes through. Taste is sharp and malty with caramel and acidic. Medium body with medium/high carbonation.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with Vin. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a fuzzy, soft white head which leaves a light ring. Aroma of peaches, oak, subtle vanilla, cheese, and barnyard funk. Medium bodied with a crispy, tart, if a a bit thin, palate. Finishes dry and tight with some modest sour fruit. Good sour.

JohnnyJ (5352) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Straw gold pour, frothy white head. Sour green apple, lemon, bready malt, leather funk, light grass, and a nice fruity sharp sourness. Not overly sour, drinkable and tasty.
