jackl (5605) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep red with a small off-white head. The nose is funky vinegar, some cherry compote and lemon peel. The taste is tangy brett, red fruits, more funky lemon. A bit of vinegar. Nice, smooth drinker.

beer-yum (796) - 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 (1477) - 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 (563) - 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 (522) - 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 (932) - 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 (13558) - 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 (849) - 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 (1538) - 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.
