ghendrix (143) - Cardiff, WALES - MAY 23, 2015
Pours murky reddish brown, thin short-lived white head. Aromas of wild yeasty funk, red berries, dampness. Taste is only slightly sweet, very sour. This is pretty nice actually, strangely so. It’s powdery, medium-full bodied, tangy. I’d happily drink again.

King_Alex_II (445) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Brown cloudyish color. The smell is like an oud bruin. The taste is intensely sour with little carbonation. The aftertaste is dry and has a sour aftertaste. This is a real great beer.

SinH4 (744) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Amber color with small white head. Flanders red aroma, cherries, sweet balsamico, funk. Taste is cherries, a bit leather, blackberries in the aftertaste. Smooth carbonation. Nice balanced Flanders red!

Rasmus40 (12921) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle from Vinspecialisten, Aalborg. Hazy amber red with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, sour fruit and barnyard. Flavor is quite sweet and light acidic. Dry and light acidic finish. 140515

tomekk1978 (801) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Aromat: wyraźna kwaskość i czerwone owoce oraz kuszące akcenty beczkowe z wanilią na czele. Barwa: czerwona, klarowna, niestety praktycznie bez piany. Niewielka beżowa koronka tworzy się po nalaniu i niemal natychmiast zanika. Smak: kwaskowośc wykrzywiająca język z posmakami słodowymi (chlebowo- karmelowymi). Następnie wino owocowe (które z czasem się nasila), jednak alkoholowość jest niewielka. Goryczka symboliczna, niewyczuwalna. Średnia pełnia, niskie wysycenie, wytrawny i kwaskowy finisz. Zdecydowanie degustacyjne piwo, bowiem nie wyobrażam sobie wypicia więcej niż jednego i to w małej butelce.

TEJA (1536) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from Charles C,thanks. Short brown head. Very clowdy brown beer. Nice acidity in the aroma blended with a woody hop. Fine acidity with fresh fruity taste and a tiny sweetness.

jamestulloch (1918) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with no head. Low carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of raspberry vinegar, orange sherbet and foam bananas. Flavour is extremely sour - underripe plum, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. Interesting aroma but bordering on undrinkable. Far too tart to be enjoyable.

shoulderbroken (2643) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is nice, fruity, bit dusty and musty. Taste is good, nice, marzipan, brown sugar, initial puckering sourness. Finish is more fruity and with some maltiness hiding. Nice.

peponi (657) - Krakow, POLAND - FEB 5, 2015
Aroma: barn, sour, phenols. Appearance: clear, copper color, no head. Taste: low bitterness, really sour, barn, bandage, dark malts. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, sour finish. Overall: One-dimensional sour beer, intensive wild notes, I expected something more.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Fruity nose of cherries and light sweet fruit, some funk. Thin reddish brown color. Smooth but tart initial, some vinegar, berries, Brett, and gentle maltiness in finish. Thin body and quite crisp. Not a bomb of acid tartness, but full of moderated flavors. Nice stuff.
