larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Big offwhite head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Funky wooden aroma with strawy barnyard notes. Sourish metallic wooden funky taste with vinegary fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, tart mouthfeel. Dry-sourish metallic wooden barnyard aftertaste with waxy fruity notes. Nice, drinkable, full of flavour. (0.75l bottle, from wine monopoly, Norway, somewhere.)

Sour beer with bits of hoppiness. Horseblanket present. Very Nice beer. But overly carbonated.

Hazy yellow, retentive off-white head. Tart, fruity nose with citric touches, some acidity. Flavor is apples and tartness, acidic notes, wood. Finish has some malty touches, more citrus and acidity. Nicely balanced, first sour I kind of "get". Thanks to Phil and Anna for sharing!

fedexs (22) - ITALY - JAN 5, 2015
vivid gold beer with persistent and compact foam, you can feel citrus and spicy in its aroma. its complex taste starts dry, continue with bitter and finish with sour and citrus. unbelivable evolution of taste and a nice body make this beer awesome!

jc1762 (181) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2015
The bottle slightly overflowed when we opened it, so do be careful. Pours like an dark amber/apricot. The nose shows most of the lambic funk you expect and in between, hints of apricot and citrus fruit. The palate shows good carbonation. Very tart and sour as expected, but I find it has somewhat of a pilsner quality as there is a hop bite/bitterness at the finish. It’s not quite noticeable for some but as a pilsner lover, it works quite well.

Vighals (1882) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Tåkete orangebrun med høyt beige skum som forsvinner fort. Lukter grønne epler, bæreddik og noe floralsk. Syrlige og noe bitre og sure smaker. Epler, eddik og ripskart.
