Bottle... RBWG 2013... Cloudy blonde pour with no head. Both the aroma and flavor are more reminiscent of a Flanders Red/Flemish Sour – sharp acidity, modest acetic component, caramel, dark berries, and fruit - accompanied by a lambic-driven, bready characteristic that transcends both the nose and taste. Lightly bitter, mildly bready, tangy-dry finish. Bottle generously shared by Maltzilla!

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2013
Love this aroma lighter vinegar and wild yeast, just a tad yeast, blended so well. Pours hazy unclear orange with a very small white head. Flavor is juicy and tangy yeast, then dries out with a nice pucker. The yeast is sweet and tangy which I really enjoy on the tongue, not too dry at all at the end.

Thanks to maltzilla for bringing this one. Cheers, Diego! Pours a hazy yellow with a white dissipating head. Nose is vinegar, oak, love, some unicorn tears, and citrus with hints of funk. Flavor was similar- big lemon, some citrusy funk, some oak, and hits of vinegar. Medium in body and lingering citrusy funk in the finish.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy amber brown color, medium white head. Aroma of funky maltiness and apple cider. Taste is sour enough to turn my cheeks inside out, holy cow! The acetic sourness overwhelms all else.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting, London. Pours fuzzy gold with a light, white foam head. Sweet malt aroma, suggestions of tang. Medium to big sweet flavor with tart lemon and mild, jammy citrus. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately acidic finish with some sticky sugars, tons of sweet malts, light sticky sugars. Decent sourness. Not bad.

The ChrisO small midweek tasting. Very hazy amber beer, little off white head. Light woody flavours with a mellow to medium sourness. Probably why I liked this one more than everyone else!

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle at Chriso - 25/09/12. Hazy mid orange with a very thin white head that soon vanished. Tarte lemon and piss on the nose. Sour lemon in taste, hay, earthy tones, hints of other citrus fruit. Medium bodied with little carbonation lending to a tarte finish. Ok but better stuff out there and this was cerainly one of the weaker beers of the nights tasting.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle thanks to Bill at ChrisO. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a limited, bubbly head. The nose is light vinegar, nail varnish, sweet-sour aspect, toasted coconut, vanilla and wood. The taste is lightly sour, white vinegar, nail varnish remover, lightly fruity, vomit and some underlying sweetness. Medium body and lowish carbonation. Watery and a bit bland. I much prefer the framboise and kreik[sic] versions.
