NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Dark copper pour with minimal head. Aromas of subtle berries and some vinegar notes. Not as sour as the nose would make you think, in fact it’s a bit too mild. Just not a whole lot going on. Decent but there are far better sours to drink.

jayzz (438) - Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Weirdest tasting sour I’ve ever had. Has a slight vinegar aroma and a smoked sour flavor with a long slight honey flavor.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2014
Nebuloso color ambrato con un velo appena accennato di schiuma bianca. Aroma dolciastro, acetico e vinoso con sentori di uva, lievito e botte; gusto acidulo e fruttato con finale amarognolo, asciutto e leggermente acetico con note di malto, lievito e limone. Corpo lieve, effervescenza debole, struttura oleoso-vinosa. Buon esercizio di stile!

VinegarStroke (297) - Napa, California, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle: hazy, light copper, with little to no head or lace. Funky sour leesy notes caramel toffee. Moderate lift. No animal. Dry moderately sour palate but phenolic. Long. A little broad and not really acid. Malt flavors. A green hop edge. Disjointed.

Lukaduke (2428) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a rusty copper color with a finger of gaseous bubbles that settle quickly. Lots of layers of tart fruit; cherry, pineapple, pear, cider vinegar. Nice touch of sweet malt in the background that keeps the acidity in check. Juicy front end and a dry puckering finish !

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 (548) - 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 (1108) - 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…!
