dfearnley (1257) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle to tulip Bile, candied sugar, cherry, rhubarb, and wheat. Colour is a hazy reddish amber with a thin white ringed head. The taste starts off with cherry, then I get something akin to chalk, but not quite, and thin artificial milk chocolate.

beer-yum (819) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2015
Complex sharp bubblegum aroma in a murky burgundy copper pour. Flavour is the same, spectacularly complex shower of sours with a quick clean finish.

omega (786) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 25, 2015
2012 bottling - fantastic nose that invites the palate to imbibe. Pours quite a murky brick red. First hit get those taste buds into action and then the flavours just keep cascading through.

Maakun (1538) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Cloudy brown with short lasting off white head. Red wine, red berries, a hint of cinnamon, quite funky. Light grains, grape skins and old nuts. Tate is medium sour with light sweetness. The aroma is not super complex, the main component is the sour taste, but it all works nicely together. Medium bodied with puckering feel. Ok stuff.

fkoolen (586) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Dark brown, transparent colour with a short-lived, white, foamy head. Sour fruity nose and taste with cherries and green apples, vinegar and light maltiness. Quite complex. Lingering fruity, sour finish. Good body, low carbonation. In comparison to the benchmark Rodenbach Grand Cru/Vintage this is less balanced (especially, too sour) and lacks some depth in flavour.

ghendrix (144) - 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 (642) - 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 (1089) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - 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!
