SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, - APR 22, 2011
Bottle, 37.5cl. Pours mahogany with tan head, that lingers for a bit, with lacing. Aroma of sour fruit with sugary undertones. Quite sour on the palate too, but in no way unpleasant with it, quite the opposite. A fine ale.

Fules (658) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2016
Picurka habja szinte azonnal eltűnik. Sötétbarna. Illata fűszeres, és határozottan vörösboros jellegű. Óh jee ez igen. A vadélesztő elemi erővel támad. Animális, kissé savanykás, fűszeres. Igen finom, vörösboros jelleggel megáldott testes sör. Utóíze savanykás, fűszeres és érezni a vadélesztőt is.

Zilverenmaan (18) - Schoten, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2016
Deep red-brown beer with big, fulll, sticky and lasting head. Taste predictably sour but also more fruity than most sour ales, very nice! alcohol content well hidden, carbonation beautifully soft, excelllent beer.

Swaroga (2023) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Sample. Coca-cola with Sprite with some cherry, vanilla and little clove. Flavor is the same. Not bad but a bit too generic and suspiciously balanced. Why not with food pairing.

OminouSC2 (402) - SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2016
Dark brown color. Sour aromas, fruits, berries, cherry and yeast. Taste is sour. Sour, unripe gooseberries and rhubarb. I wish I could taste something else but the sour taste is too intense. Sour finish.

SylvainCFC (46) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2016
Robe brune foncé, teinte acajou. Mousse moyenne au versement, tenue moyenne, beige claire. Grosses bulles qui disparaissent. Nez doux, vinaigré et acide. Arômes fruités (cerise, framboise). Bouche moyennement acide dčs l’attaque balancée par une douceur de fruit et de malt, léger caramel, la fermentation mixte est claire. Petite amertume ŕ mi-bouche. Bien balancée, un peu plus amčre que la Rodenbach.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Jesus, Mary and Joseph this beer is something else. Beautiful mahogany colour with a small head. It’s like a wine but so much better. It’s nicely tart, but also really sweet. Amazing cherry flavours. And always there’s an ale in the background reminding you how incredibly distinctive good beers can be. This is how you do sweet and sour

I really really like it. It is fresh, it is slightly sour, it has wine aroma, it is refreshing, it is different, it is unexpected, it is really good beer. 2015 batch.
