scirtes (439) - POLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle, 2.12.2015. Dark red beer with thin pinkish head and nice lacing. Aromas of ripe fruits, some earthy notes are noticeable as well. Taste of fruits, sweets, low bitterness. Interesting one, although I’m not sure if I can feel crowberries in this beer.

sebletitje (9348) - 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 (7363) - 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 (10244) - 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."
