Bottle from Hop City in Atlanta. Pint glass pour in my hotel room. Pours a deep red-brown with a thick, fast diminishing head. Great aroma of sour cherries, dark fruits, and acidic. The taste was a little less exciting than the aroma. The cherries and fruits come through, but it really isn’t very tart. Flavor is fine, but just mild. Little acid to go along. Light body, smooth finish. Overall good, but oddly light in flavor.

Theydon_Bois (7924) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle at Six Degrees North, Aberdeen, 21/06/14. Dark chestnut brown/amber with reddish hues. Nose is tarte fruit, dark cherry skins, musty fruit cake mix, dates, sour mash, dank straw, light smoke and spice. Taste comprises stoned fruit pangs, caramel, light toffee, bitter cherry, almond, light acidic notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sour rinse in the close. Decent enough Flemish red.

Pours an almost impenetrable brown/red with a finger thick white head from bottle into a tulip glass. The aroma is pungent and fruity. Very thin bouncy mouth feel that is not too intense. Taste is sour, slightly cherry like but not artificially. Great beer

Dark ruby Brown in color with mild head retention. Unfortunately smells and tastes of vinegar up front with sour dark fruit coming in the after taste.

Delade flaska med VictorStr, Tyckte doften var en aning unken. Välbalanserad syrlig men ändå söt. Jag kände både syrligheten likt en lambic och sötman från en brown ale.

Väldigt fruktig och körsbär i aromen. Smaken är fruktansvärt bra balanserad, fyllig kropp.

gegwilson (921) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Bruges. Pours hazy red with a frothy cream head. Quite sweet at first. Some juicy red fruit at first with woody undertones. A little sourness, but not as much as you might expect. Nice, but not amazing.

Draft. Red/orange pour with tall white, creamy head. Aroma is cider vinegar, rotten apples. Taste is also vinegary with a soy sauce component. Some barrel notes here along with brown sugar sweetness. Interesting..didn’t know what to make of this one in the end.
