Nocturne (764) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
From bottle at Borefts 2012. Burnt orange with almost no head. Tastes and smells sour and musty with lots of ripe hedgerow berries. Not too complex but definitely tasty and makes use of an unusual fruit to good effect.

jackl (4559) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep red with no head whatsoever. The nose is big, bright meaty cherry, some tart cranberry and sweet sugar. Mild pissy sourness. The taste is smooth berry smoothie, nectarine, meaty orchard fruits and some dirrrrty yeast. Soft tart bugginess. Very drinkable. Good stuff!

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2012
50 cl. bottle - sampled @ Borefts 2012 - unlike almost every else - I just love cowberry sours & I need more of them - dark red orange with only on the sides a white head - smell is sour cowberry goodness, still light sweet touch, lemons - funky stuff - reasonably sour cowberry taste with a light vinegar and lemon juice sourness, some sweeter musty wild berries underneath, old musty sweet touches, sour old moldy malt - medium bodied - dries the mouth out a bit - nice

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 29, 2012
Cloudy copper, thin beige lace. Bready, tutti frutti and malt grains. Quite thesfunky pinch though, much more than in the aroma. More complexity after a few sips. Drinks well enough. (On tap at Borefts 2012)

Strykzone (4900) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. No carbonation visible. Light brown with orange hues. It smells funky and fruity. The taste is funky with wild yeast. Fruit is light. This is more funky than sour. Decent and drinkable for this non sour guy.
