brokensail (14529) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Amber pour with a khaki head. Somewhat bland aroma, but there is a nice bit of malt sweetness. Some grape, mild cherry, and a definite acetic sourness. The taste is a bit bland and watery, but as with the nose, there is some fruit character and a mild tartness. Fairly basic and mediocre, just a bit of red wine vinegar and some mild grass.

Bottle 25cl. Clear chestnut brown, two finger frothy beige head, half-way lasting, good lacing; aroma is vinegar, caramel, sour cherries, bit wood; taste medium sweet and sour, fruity, some vinegar, with long duration, mild sourish finish; medium body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation; pleasant and drinkable Sour/Brown Ale.

rand (1410) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle 25 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Reddish brown with a nice clear beige foam. Acidic nose, vinous, sugar and fermented fruits. The taste is similar, acidic, lactic, with a malted sweetness. Acidity replaces bitterness. Light beer, digestible, finale soft and fluid, without complications. A old style which, I hope, will persist.

Erzengel (6723) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2015
Thanks to Rian for sharing. Nice sweetish sour beginning. Wood, fresh. Sweetish sour on a moderate basis. Easy to drink though and still fruity and deep. Wood in the aftertaste, round and nice.
