Hanuta06 (381) - Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Total Wine & More. Aroma: light apple aroma. Appearance: huge, fizzy, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and mostly lasting longevity. Dark red/brown body. Taste: moderately sour apple initial flavor and moderately sour, leathery finish with average duration. Palate: light bodied with dry texture, fizzy carbonation and metallic finish feel. Overall: excellent. Complex flavor. Thirst-quenching. I’d happily drink this again.

This beer pours brownish red with full head. A flavor of sour apple and cherry bland with earthy flavor to make a ry good sour beer.

A small taste from a friend’s bottle (last one!) @ Stadin Panimobaari. Pours deep red with a low head. Aroma is slightly sour malts. Flavor is sour malts with a good balance. Nice.

willisread (632) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a chalice. Pours a clear dark ruby with a modest tan head that lingers before dissipating. Big aromas of cherry, apple and yeast with a bit of barnyard funk. Taste is very sour cherry forward with some apple and currant on the finish. The beer itself is not really sour per sea but it does have a light tartness that cuts into the overall sweet palate. It is reminiscent of a less sour version of Duchesse de Bourgogne. Full body with nice carbonation and a slightly sticky cola-like mouthfeel. Nice lingering finish that coats the palate. This is were the tartness stands out...especially as it warms up.

psilosophy (550) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAY 20, 2015
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur rougeâtre, très peu de mousse, pas de tenue. Aromatiquement, on se rapproche des notes d’ un vin rouge avec un côté fruité plus marqué et d’avantage de sucre, c’ est donc assez logique que çà me fasse un peu penser à une sangria pétillante! Malgrés le peu de mousse, la carbonnation est intense en bouche. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploehstaert.

ForlornHope (181) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle at home. Actually, two bottles, one is older than the other on a back-to-back tasting. Pours a deep, dark red colour with a small head. Any sediment in the bottle has compacted well, so the beer is very clear. The aroma is more like a wine, with red fruits on the nose, particularly cherry and currant. The older bottle was much more vinous and sour, almost lactic. On the tongue the beer is sweet, then really very dry. Again, in the older sample the sweetness had almost gone. On the palate, more fruit, like stewed prunes, rich grain and a nice underlying sourness that enhances the fruit. Quite a sticky beer, rich palate, but nonetheless the younger version is oddly thirst-quenching. An interesting beer, well away from the mainstream and one to return to as the depth of flavour is excellent.

Turtles (255) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2015
750ml bottle. Clear ruby ​​red. Vinegar in the aroma. The flavor starts sweet, then becomes sour, red apples dominate, raspberry, honey, oak barrels. A nice experience where flavors stay long.

craftbeersweden (309) - SWEDEN - APR 20, 2015
Clear red-brown beer with a thin head. Nose: Tart, cherry, oak, red apple, vinegar and pear. Taste: Cerry, tart, oak, sourness, sweet apple, grape, blackberries and bread. Body: Medium body with a crisp carbonation. Pretty sweet but the sourness balance the beer. Very good Grand Cru from Ichtegems with complex, balanced taste. A little to sweet for me. I think I put my remaining bottle on hold for a few years and let it mature :)

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’. Murky brown, white ring. A little vinous, grapes, some cherry aroma, sweetish sherry taste. No carbonation, full body, long, sherry finish. Really nice, delicate and inoffensive.
