2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a murky, rusty amber color with a wisp of a head and little lacing. A film does sit on top for a while. Aroma light with vinegar, stone fruit, cherry pie, and damp rotting wood. Tastes much of the same but in a less "bad" way than the smell. Body and palate was pretty good, smooth silky and nicely LOW carbonated. Overall, not a great example of the style as there was not enough funk in some areas, too sweet in others and a bit of a mess in yet some more. I will say this though, it may be a decent introductory to someone who has never tried the style as it is mild with many of the different flavors that are usually found in the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Red pour with a fluffy head. Big sour and funky aroma. Lots of fruits mixed in as well. Lots of sour notes at the start of the flavor. The sour is quite potent as well with very mild fruit notes that make it taste even more sour.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 l bottle. Dark hazy reddish brown. Sour aroma with acetic acid, bitter chocolate and dark cherry. Sweet and sour flavor with acetic acid, pickled beetroot and bitter chocolate. Too acetic for my taste but goes better with stinky cheese.

Bottle. Pours a murky brown with smallish cream coloured head. Odd aroma of sweet fruit and feint sourness. Flavours are sweet with some sourness once again. Thin mouthfeel. Doesnt really work unfortunately.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
21/11 0.568 l bottle, great thanks ogivlado for sharing! It poured slightly hazy brown body with medium sized head. Vinous and a bit caramelly aroma. Flavor still kept vinous part for sure, but tends t balance it with roasted malt like coffee and semi-sweet roasted sugar. Notes of wood. Medium bodied, with quite long, acidic and pleasantly creamy finish. A nice ale for sure, but it didnít impress me so much from some reason.
