Kita (1082) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Hazy ruby brown color with small off-white head. Aroma of wine, sour cherry and strong notes of wood. Taste starts musty and with ripe fruits acidity, follows by tannin bitterness at the back of palate, which creates pretty warming mouthfeel. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Liquid tart fruit cake...

uckelman (267) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2014
Pours hazy reddish brown, no head. Sour apple and cider vinegar aroma. Jaw-clenchingly sour. The finish is disappointing---it would be better with a little sparkle from the carbonation, but there just isn’t any.

sarauckelman (183) - Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2014
Dark reddish amber, with a strong aroma of cherry jolly ranchers, until you put your nose in, then it’s just straight sour (yum!). No carbonation. Burst of sour on the tip of the tongue floods to the back, enough to make the jaws clench. Just excellent.

bhensonb (11079) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Tap at Hair of the Dog. Pours hazy dark red berry with no head. Aroma of sour red fruit. Med body. Flavor is lightly sour red fruits - quite fruity. Finishing dry and fairly tart red berry. Very tasty.

gildnerk (132) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
First-ever sour ale, so pardon my amateur observations. Bottle; pours a hazy hazelnut brown with virtually no head. Aromas of apple cider, some rotten fruit, a bit of dark, sweet malt. Taste is predominantly sour (apple cider), with some bitter hop and sweeter malt notes towards the end. Lasting sour aftertaste, medium carbonation. Well-rounded.

tom10101 (2796) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on July 10th 2013. Slightly hazy dark amber/copper with no head and little lacing. Aroma is of sour berries, cherries, green apples, light caramel, wood and acetic notes. Taste is moderately sour with berries, wood, light caramel, green apples and light sweetness (fruit jam). Medium body. Low carbonation. Woodsy finish. Not a bad Sour Brown. Quite fruity. Not too acetic. A little more carbonation would help. Tasty.

chimpgibbon (309) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle from Utobeer. Fantastic sour here. Thin but fizzy pour, no head. Goes flat pretty quick. Ruby red. Massive funky sharp aroma, some wine. Little cherry. Taste is lip-puckering sour, sharp sharp red fruits, funk, vinous notes. Palate is zingy with dryness and a little sweetness.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 20, 2014
Hazy unattractive amber, no head. Nose is wood, cherries, some acetic but well balanced by the malt. Flavor is cherries/strawberries, bright prickly acidity, wood, nice rich malt.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle @brew night with jeevan & allmyvinyl. Huge murky brew (looks like Thames river water 40 years ago) with a big sour nose which is lovely. Tart and sour, vinegar to the fore. I’d leave this for another couple of years before opening another bottle, i think this is a little young right now.
