CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle shared by Travlr: pours a clear bright pink with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a tart light fruity nose with a touch of pale malty sweetness and funk. Starts with good fullness and effervescence with puckering tartness and horseblanket funk with some vinous fruitiness before a crisp, drier finish. Well-balanced and complex.

marcus (8685) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours orang amber with a tiny white head and a magnificent sour fruit aroma. There is a a really tasty sour berry flavor with a nice yeast presence. Just tart enough.

750 shared by Marcus. Pours hazy orange/cherry mix with little if any head. Aroma is rathe sour mixed fruit. Med body. Flavor is smooth, mildly sour mixed fruit, but the cherry stands out of the mix. With time the sour cherry predominates. Very good stuff indeed.

sjogro (2087) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2016

Maakun (2867) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Clear orange/golden/light brown with no head just a few bubbles. Lots of funk and barnyard notes, sour gooseberries, peach, red berries, light rubber touch, lemon. Over medium sour and a hint of sweetness. Medium bodied with no carbonation. More funky than fruity.

Lukaduke (2918) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 6, 2016
Pours a slightly rusty golden color with a touch of fizzy foam. Lots of sour fruit on the nose with heavy tart qualities and a hint of sweetness along with lots of damp basement. Great acid on the front that opens up with a juicier midpalate... lingering blackberry but the gooseberry punch is the highlight for me and lures you into this funky complex brew. Puckering but on the front of the tongue not down the esophagus. Cobwebs, dust, wet wood.
