Thanks travlr! Clear reddish pour with a small white head. Woody acetic, and lactic acid, big pedio funk, cherries, dark fruit, and raspberry. Medium body with fluffy effervescence and a dry crisp finish. Really nice.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
750mL thanks to Travlr. GUSHER!! Pours a clear tea amber. Beige foam, enormous formation, overcarbonated. Settles down quickly. No lace. Acetic nose with must, caramel, dark cherries, melted chocolate. Taste is tart, tangy, bitter, not too harsh. Red wine vinous as usual. Not too acetic in taste. Very minerally. Palate is stingy, hot, minerally, lactic. Very interesting. Not bad at all. Not sure what this beer is.....but I would still put it in Sour/Wild Ale.

75cl bottle thanks to sebletitje! Pours ruby copperish with a little white head that dissipates quickly. Spice dominates the nose, but red berries are also present. Taste is also spicy, but not a ginger bomb. A bit sweet and tart. Med body with fine carbonation. An interesting treat.

75cl, courtesy of Rémi. Thanks for bringing this from Switzerland. Cuivrée, fine beige. Arôme est fruité avec un léger rappel de poudre de gingembre sans être trop surfait. On note de suite ce côté bien Hitachino pour un bouquet rappelant bien la Hitachino Ginger. Au gingembre s’ajoute un beau nez houblonné fruité. En bouche, houblonné japonais, peut être du Sorachi? laissant un très bon profile agrumes citronné. Le gingembre donne des notes d’épices sans être pour cela trop présent ce qui est souvent le cas des bières utilisant le gingembre. Le profile fruité oscille entre le tropical, goyave, citronné avec une levure étant plus dans la lignée de BFM. Le malt reste plus en retrait et laisse le champ libre aux houblons.

14/IV/2012 - 75cl bottle @ home - BB: 7/XI/15 (2012-364) Thanks to sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy copper red beer, aery light beige head, unstable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: sweet ripe fruits, pineapple, lychees, sour berries (reminds me of the Goji Beer), oranges, honey, guava. MF: way too much carbon, medium body. Taste: sour red berries, bitter nasty flavours, rotten fruits, some mocha, weird bitterness. Aftertaste: sour, poisonous berries, nasty oranges. Man this is bad. Funny thing: opinions were very different on this one. Always interesting.

Travlr (21687) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Murky purplish brown color, medium beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of prunes, apricots, raisins. Taste starts sweeet but has a slightly sour edge, very soft, with tons of dark summer fruit. Medium body. Nice.

fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2011
Beautiful red-amber color, hazy; medium sized creamy head. The aroma is slightly funky, with rose petals and apricot jam. Smooth mouthfeel, high carbonation; the malt flavor has traces of Bretts giving a pleasant woody astringency; there are delicate fruity notes and spices; correct bitterness, peppery too in the end. It’s a balanced, intriguing, wonderful beer.

Ungstrup (34703) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2011
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, malt, caramel, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, and spices - especially ginger, leading to a dry spicy finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.
