KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2013
6/3/7/4/14 25 cl bottle from ABS Drinks. Tangy aroma, chocolate, cherries, green apple, a bit of vinegar. Relatively tame. Dark brown with orange tints and a high, fine head. Nicely tangy flavor, chocolate, yogurt, orange, lactic acid, a touch of vinegar. Relatively sweet and malty for the style, but not in a cheap way. Not all that exciting, but nice drinking. Some roasted chocolate and tangy sourness in the finish. Light, smooth body, soft carbonation.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Aroma has funky sour things going up my nose. Maybe I am crazy but I smell an acidic stone ground mustard thing going on. Freaky impresive aroma. Some wood and berries. Nice complex beer. The only knock is it is too sweet but the other notes push back on the sweetness. Thin and prickly. Basalmic vinegar. I really enjoyed it.

bottle at l’autre oeil, aylmer. pours unclear ruby with a small light beige head, little retention. lightly sugary and faint caramel malts, madeira, semi-sweet cherries and oak, bit of lactic, just a hint of acetic, herbs, grass, pepper and other spices. soft carbonation, light body - tad weak, short lightly woodsy and grassy-mineral finish. muted sour brown but balanced and enjoyable. o-k.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2013
Kackbraunes, trübes Essigwasser mit etwas Schaum. Riecht wie umgekippte Fassbrause nach holzigem, ja fauligem Essig. Geschmacklich dto. Kotzübles Gebräu!

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2013
On tap at 2SP. Pours a very dark chocolate brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma is oaky and tart with a nice balance of chocolate maltiness. Nicely balanced, with a solid roasted maltiness complimenting the tart earthy oak sourness. Smooth light body with medium carbonation.
