Nice example of the style. Not by favourite, but still unique and worth a try.

Shared bottle. 2013 edition. Amber with an off-white head. Aroma of red wine, dark berries, and vinegar. Taste is vinous, with berries, dark fruit, oak, hints of caramel, and metallic notes. Tart finish.

A nice find from a local German restaurant. Pours a deep red with a thick head. Flavors are superb--a sour start finishes with rich caramel and butterscotch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: pronounced sour/cherry aroma; Appearance: dark amber/cola with fluffy white head that hangs around; Taste: follows nose but sweeter; a bit cloying; Palate: medium body with long, overly sweet finish; Overall: not so great; would not get again.

Icedwarf (1312) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2016
Rood bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoetzuur en fruitig met iets van bessen, bramen en pruimen. Voor mij persoonlijk een echt goed fris bier omdat deze wat zoeter is.

dfearnley (1825) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle to tumbler Consummation: Primarily caramel with a sour apple and cherry bite Adjunct: Loads of caramel aromatics with light lemon meringue and a hint of yeast; the colour is a light reddish amber with a with a frothy white head, leaving lots of lacing

furthur (920) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Growler from Brown Jug, dark amber beer, white head faded. Aroma is red wine, vineagar, kombucha. Taste is vineagar, kombucha, red wine, something spicy, oak. Palate medium, carbonation subdued. This seems really vineagary at first, but the oak and malt come through.

SylvainCFC (82) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Robe parfaitement claire cuivre/rouge foncé, tête moyenne blanc cassé de tenue moyenne, aspect meringué. Nez vineux agréable, sur la fermentation, le chêne dépassé par des notes sucrées, vanillées. L’attaque sur l’acidité, les notes boisées et une légère amertume se prolonge sur une bouche ronde, douce (vanille). "Bruit" métallique. Carbonatation faible. Longueur moyenne douce. Rouge brune douce, moins vineuse que d’autres du style. Manque de place laissée à l’acidité.

daje (4123) - NORWAY - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle at Tilt, april 30th 2016. Dark red body with a medium tanned head. Aroma of vanilla, red berries, toast and oak. Taste is sweet with a medium berry acidity, fruit and almond. Sticky sweet finish, light fruit aftertaste. Too sweet, the sourness doesnt get enough room.

Zilverenmaan (19) - Schoten, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2016
Prachtig roodbruin oud bruin met stevige, blijvende kraag. Aroma aangenaam maar overheerst door vanille, meer dan andere oud bruine bieren. Zelfde geldt voor de frisse, zure (appel ) smaak. Opvallend stroperig ook, gelukkig zonder uitgesproken zoetheid. Carbonatie zeer aangenaam ( mild ). Niet de meest typische vertegenwoordiger ( ik houd wel van wat originaliteit ) van het genre maar zeker de moeite waard.
