visionthing (3886) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2014
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Storo. Pours slightly hazy deep rusty with a somewhat pinkish head. Fruity and slightly yeasty aroma with notes of crowberries. Medium sweet with mild acidity and berry flavours. Pleasant and refreshing.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
Bouteille sample 50cl @ Il Pretesto, Bologna. BB 02/12-2015. Batch# 691. Cuivrée tirant sur le rougeâtre, col blanc cassé. Arôme est fruité de baies et de plante rappelant un peu le framboise. Palais est fruité assez léger sur un malt plutôt pâle, le tout offrant une belle rondeur de bouche gardant une petit note sucrée et de fruit rouge. Pointe surette perce en retrait.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark red. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (basement, mold), with notes of cranberry, sour cherry, pickle juice / vinegar. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Musty and slightly vinegary and otherwise unremarkable. Generic berry character and not much distinction in any way. I generally like Haand a lot, but their sour ales are often pretty crude and simple.

slowrunner77 (7872) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"Pinkish hue. Very fruity aroma but a far mellower than expected flavor. A little sweet with a touch of tart, but not really sour as expected. Light and easy to drink, nice soft feel...but for $9 definitely a one-timer."

fiammanghilla (902) - Genova, ITALY - AUG 26, 2014
Bottiglia 50 cl, comprata da Giangaspero e bevuta a casa. Rossa con schiuma fine. Corpo medio, carbonazione abbastanza fine. Amara e molto ciliegiosa. Non male

Finn (5176) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Flaske 500ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Batch 691. Mørk amber. Uklar. Lavt skum. Svakt fruktig aroma - men overraskende svak. Smaken er mye bær & trær. Siden etiketten sier det må det jo være krekling - men ikke lett å fastslå. Bra - men litt kjedelig.

demmbonz (702) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Shared bottle to snifters. Brownish pour with a red tint. Nice big white head with good retention. Odd earthy and fruity aroma. A bit thin and dominated by the flavor of the berries, which I’m not sure if I like.
