Bottle, pours a cloudy orange-brown body with quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma of sour fruit and light vinegar. Taste is not as fruity as the aroma and has an earthy/vegetal quality along with some tartness. Also has an odd, almost chemical taste near the end. Very lightly carbonated that quickly goes flat. Dry, tart finish. Rather drinkable for a sour ale, although not very acidic.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
A - Pours an orange struck dark reddish hue, hazy with a light head that recedes rather quickly leaving no trace of itself. S - Fruity and funky! Starfruit, melon, raspberries, blackberry cobbler, acidic aroma, dank musty wood, hints of floral T - Woody ocean water, salty apple cider, earthy minerals, hints of tart berries and bright and sour citrus, it’s pretty earthy and floral. While the tartness is there, it’s slightly muted. Cooked stone fruit, and salty honeydew. Earthy mineral notes on the aftertaste. M - Firm medium body, low carbonation, salty with a dry finish. A very interesting lambic. Lots of salty/stone/mineral/earthy flavors that are mixed with tart fruits and funky yeast. I like the effort but feel it’s slightly too salty without enough tartness. With that being said, it was an enjoyable drink that was fun to explore. Serving type: bottle 12-30-2012

WilleLW (182) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2013
Dark redbrown colour with a small head. Aroma of fruits, raisins and cherry with a slightly sour character. Also some smell of juniper berry. Taste of juniper berry, fruits and some grapes with a distinctive sour and drt characteristics. Interesting and nice. A simple fresh and dry mouthfeel.

ineedbeer (881) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Aroma is rather acidic and full of tart fruit including cherries and berries but it also has a strong acetic character to it. A hint of a Brett note but no barnyard to balance the fruity acidity. Pours a cloudy brown with slight ruby highlights. Very thin head that quickly recedes. Flavor is a bit better than the aroma, but it does have a stale, old, malt character. The acidity is slightly acetic and the beer is rather fruity with berries and tart cherries. Finish is slightly sweet but with a lingering acidity. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation, almost flat; Tomme would be proud. Astringency is low and alcohol warmth medium low. Overall not an amazing beer. The acidity doesn't seem clean, the malt tastes stale and the beer is flat. It lacks complexity and could use some Brett character to balance the fruit an acidity. One of my least favorite Haand beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EricTeusink (703) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Asa’s Pre-Flight Tasting Beer #3. Totally random selection by Asa from Five Points Bottle Shop in Athens. Pours Mid-Brown with a tinge of red and no head. Scent is reminiscent of apple cider. Flavor is more vinegar than tart. Bitter finish. Beer is completely flat. Not sure if that is by design. Bottle - Five Points Bottle Shop - Athens, GA

Westmeister (1821) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle shared at EricTeusink tasting. Pours a dark amber with zero head. Smell is crisp maltinees, cherries, earthy. Taste is medium tart, hint of plastic, cherries and I berry I guess I will say is a cloudberry, although I have never had such a fruit. Light palate that is begging for some carbonation.

5/16/13. Bottle thanks to Nathan! Funky, lightly sour aroma with berries, strawberry, and burnt caramel. Strawberry, berries, burnt caramel, funk, and some mint. Not bad. I have no idea what crowberries are.

Bottle@Home. Strawberry aroma, acidic with a hint of oak. Red, tiny off-white head, no lace. Strawberries, rather oaky flavour, cherry pits, funky, hint of paracetamol. Bit thin. Complex yet highly drinkable.

On tap @ Borefts 2012 - taken from notes.Seriously impressed with this beer, as I was with the Sur Megge. Nose is lots of cherries, taste is cloves and lots of forest fruits (dark & red). Niiiiiice!!
