fraz (36) - Castiglioncello - Livorno, ITALY - MAY 3, 2014
Poured from bottle into a shaker glass with Giulia, @home. Pours a deep gold color, with a little white head, very little persistent. It smells of leather, earthy, citrus, grass, woody, resin. The smell is quite persistent. The taste is little sweet at the beginning but it becomes tart and citric very soon. However, the wood sensation due to aging is present through the whole tasting. It gives a pleasant velvet touch in the mouth. At the end, the alcoholic sensation balances the citric notes and makes the beer very enjoyable with a pleasant warming final.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Big sour almost squash smell, slightly rotting vegetable smell but in a good way? Pearlescent glowing orange peach color light ring of head. Big mouth feel, acidic on the start then goes to and oak wood taste that then sours like a tart fermented aprium. The tart coats your mouth in a woody grain of sour the taste lasts far beyond the sip.

tmrmwel (959) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours reddish dark golden with small creamy lacings. Ahh, yes, the aroma is really nice. Balsamic vinegar with vinous tones, lots of fruit and wood, and some tart funky bretty notes. Velvety smooth and full body with almost no carbonation. Flavour is fruity and sour with apples and grapes, as well as vinous red wine barrel wood. Fruity and just the right amount of astringency in the finish. Mmmm…!
