Bottle @ Kick mat & Malt. Unclear reddish/orange body with a thin off-white head. Very nice aroma of acidic red berries, farmhouse funk and a bit vinous. Flavor is refreshing fruity, vinous, medium acidic and hint of wood. Nice and balanced body, long acidic vinous aftertaste. A nice one, especially in the nose, but somewhere about halfway through the bottle it’s losing some of the fascinating and I realize this is not among the best Belgium originals. Still a nice one.

nilsas (3523) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Frisk duft av syrlige frukter. Dunkel gulbrun farge.. Høyt trykk i flaske og mye karbonering ved åpning. Mye skum som forsvinner raskt til bare litt langs kant. God syrlig smak.

Duntoyou (107) - Kr.sand, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2013
Sour berrys. Tart. Barn. Brown reddish. Small white head. Taste is sour. Can feel the wine barrel.. Nicely bqlqnced. Not so much the brettanomycis or the farmhouse. Wine barrel is very much there. Hard to understand how they made this from the back of the bottle. Mystery

llkc (1577) - århus, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Duft: frugt, lidt duft fra de mørker malte, sød malt duft. en smule duft ala en syrlig øl. Smag: frugitg, blod, jordbær, fløde, smag af fad, minder en smule om en rødvin. men klar nok når den har lagt 10 m på rødvin fad

tmrmwel (1790) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma is sweet with lot of fruit and honey, as well as a fruity sourness from apples and hay, and notes of wood and balsamic vinegar. Rather light body with a creamy texture and normal carbonation. Flavour is sour with funky and woody notes of oak barrels, wine grapes, dark cherries and berries.

ClubGonzo (5468) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a hazy deep bronze body with a small white head. Nose is dry farmhouse yeast tones, red fruits, berries, red wine and hints of wood, vanilla and horse blanket. Nice. Taste is tart farmhouse and red fruity tones, sharp horsey brett notes, red wine, wood and hints of prunes and citric peel. Smooth blend. Medium body, high carbonation. Pretty solid sour ale.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 09.07.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Small slightly bubbly mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour, red berries, grass, sugar, paint, sorrel, vinegar, oak, caramel. Taste is slightly sour-ish grassy, red berries, oak, sorrel, grass, paint, caramel. Slightly dry mouthfeel. Quite nice actually, but comparing this one with all the good Belgian sours is just not fair.
