maekchu (2356) - 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.

reebtogi (4445) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
750ml bottle pours an amber orange color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon and yeast. Taste is sour lemons with some dry yeasty notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, sour lemons and yeast in a bottle. This brew needs more malt and/or hops to balance out the sourness. A well crafted brew that just misses the mark.

MatthijsE (907) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
On tap @ de Molen. Hazy dark orange - reddish colour, thin white head. Nose is sour, bit of vinegar, red fruits. Flavour is sour and fairly dry, red fruits, some tartness. Nice.

DrSilverworm (7226) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2014
4oz pour on tap at Liberty’s, for $4.50. Dark fruit, vanilla, mild vinous character up front in the aroma, just a touch of vinegar. Some cherry and chocolate. Pour does not look very impressive at all. Pours with a minimal ring of bubbly head, which quickly fades to nothing. Hazy dark brown red color. Palate is also very light on carbonation, too, but its not too bothersome. Satisfying bigger body, kind of slick finish. Works. Moderate sweet taste, moderate tart, good woody character. Lightly spicy. Mild saltiness? Enjoyable flemish red style.

JorisPPattyn (8095) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
Fast gone off-white head over copperish-ruby beer. Alcoholic, syrupy-sweet nose with fruity & hoppy aromas, liqueurish, hints at young oak. Smells phenomenally alcoholic for only 6.2% ABV. Sour with a faint fruity sweetness in the background. Sour cherries (yet not the sour cherry version!) and other (sour) red fruit. Bit of lemon, and very old wine, some wood. Retronasal strawberries - unripe ones. Sharp acidburn, nearly dry-out effect, lipsmacking acidity. No alcoholeffect in the mouth, in contrast to the nose. Good, if a tad crude Oud Bruin.

rzymol (77) - - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle, 33cl, 1 y.o. Pours intense tea with thin and short-lasting foam. Aroma is sour, very intense, biological, yeasty. Taste is amazing, very sour, a bit salty, with low bittering finish and dry aftertaste. Cannot feel roasted barley. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

Sjohnh (287) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Clear, attractive red brown colour. No head to speak of. Light body and little carbonation, but the sourness gives an impression of a fuller body. Sour, sharp fruit, tea. Strong but well balanced sour ale.

DwarfeD (1229) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
33cl bottle at home. Dark amber brown with a small tan head. Medium body with quite some carbonation. Nice sourness with some sweet tones. Apple, vinegar, lemon, spices and herbs. A great tasty well balanced sour brew.

olio (6690) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours murky red-brown color with no head. Sour dark berries and some plums on the nose, yeasty and some wood also. Nice cherry flavor, tangy, some plums, citric fruit notes also. Mouth-drying effect, nice Flemish Red.
