minutemat (4421) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle @ MTG II tasting at Rich’s Welfare Pad. Pours a hazed red, off white head. Massively complex aroma with bourbon, berries and sour red balsamic. Taste is puckeringly crisp with layered nuances of bourbon, nutty toffee and a sharp acetic presence. Intense.

SarkyNorthener (4128) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle shared at the Midlands Tasting Group. Red Amber beer with small head. Aroma is deep red berries, balsamic and funky. Taste is tart, puckering red berries, bourbon, red fruit, some dryness, wood and balsamic. Great carbonation and mouth feel across the tongue. The beer of the year so far for me. World class.

nathanvc (240) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2016
At Ghent Beer Festival. Pours clear ruby red with a small beige head. Smells of bourbon. The aroma contains caramel, malts, vinegar, whisky and citrus. It tastes medium sweet and medium to heavy sour. The finish is long and acidic - a bit too much. Medium body, soft carbonation. Great to discover.

tderoeck (8187) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2016
20/VIII/16 - 75cl bottle @ Gents Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2016-868)

Clear ruby red beer, small aery beige head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of lactobacillus, very earthy, tobacco leafs, some caramel. MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, lots of lacto, lemony, acidic, vinegar even, bit fruity. Aftertaste: very sourish, lemon juice, vinegar, way too sour, burns the throat. Don’t like the super aggressive character of this beer.

JorisPPattyn (9505) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2016
No head left but small rim; red-brown beer. Sour, vinous, cherries, wood - all things nice. Sour-fruity, red (unripe) fruit, redcurrant. Complex, lactic, tad of acetid, just a hint at vanilla. Acidburning, acidthinning. A tad too sour, maybe - but (very) good all the same.

Thank you for sharing! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ Gents Bierfestival 2016. Dark red copper with no head. Nose is quite sour with glue components, sour red fruit, vinegar, quite sour & puckering but rather nice. Taste is sour vinegar, acidic, touch glue, sour puckering red fruit & oak, didn’t get the bourbon, puckering vinegar cherry,… Body is vinegar, oak & glue. Quite harsh but also pretty good & enjoyable.

3 oz pour at Hops & Pie. Aroma of red fruits, sour berries, light oak, light vanilla and a hint of bourbon. Similar flavor, sour and barrel complexities with hints of bourbon spice and a tart, lingering finish. Nice.
