RobertDale (5082) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 19, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of tart fruit, balsamic vinegar, malt and yeast. Taste is a complex mix of cherries, malt, citrus and sugar. Starts sweet and ends tart. Not sure what to make of this style. Interesting for sure.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Poured from bottle into my Founder snifter glass. Dark brown color with a thin head and what seemed to be good carbonation. Fruity aroma, hints of sugar and candy. Flavor wasn’t as sweet as I was expecting. Fruity mostly. A pleasant and relaxing beer.

Veldrid (120) - Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with small head that is quick to fade. Aroma was green apples, and an acidic vinegar note. Flavor was green apples, sugar, candies, and acid. There was a slight tartness but it was out done by the sweetness. Drinkable but too sweet for me to truly enjoy.

flatmatt (1395) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber with a very slightly off-white head. Somewhat sour and funky aroma with lemon, brown sugar, and cherry. Flavor is sugary and somewhat sour, tart cherry, lemon, brown sugar, a little herbal, and a little dusty. Kind of alternates between slightly strange and pleasant, but it spends more time on the pleasant side. Not bad. (And now I just need to rate a malt liquor to finish all current beer styles.)

JStax (4578) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Poured from a bottle. This is just an odd beer. A bit sour, but the foot influence is too much for me. I can’t say I would want to try this again.

Koelschtrinker (15750) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Etwas süßer Antrunk, der Unterton ist minimal sauer. Der Geuze-Grundton ist anfänglich noch vorhanden, verschwimmt aber nach und nach. Im Mittelteil ist die Süße nun deutlich führend, dadurch wird das Faro etwas künstlicher. Dieser Eindruck verstärkt sich im Abgang deutlich, hier wird das Bier süßer, künstlicher und muffig. Test vom 8.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,10,9,10,9 - 9,05

LeopoldT (90) - Lazarevac, SERBIA - JUN 11, 2011
Nice brown colour with small head. Medium carbonation. Aromas of apple and pear. Taste is heavy sweet with hints of apple. Some dryness. Refreshing

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle pours deep red-amber with a khaki colored head. Aroma is sweet/tart with notes of caramel, candi sugar, wood, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of apple, cherry, and overripe peach. Overall body is moderate with fairly heavy sweetness. A little too sweet for my liking, but still pretty good nonetheless.

maledictum (741) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 4, 2011
25cl bottle at home. Pours attractive orange copper with a thin cream head. Nose is sweet and fruity, as is the flavor. Not too sweet though, with a delicate mouthfeel and decent dry finish.

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2011
bottle. Pours a clear red rust color with nice orange tinted head. Aroma not as sweet as expected, there are some vinous, funky tones here, soft balsamic, but also present is a candy like sweetness, which combined give a sensation of candied tart apples. Flavor is sweet / sour, starting with the sweet, a sugary candy like flavor, reminding me of hard candy, i.e. the outside candy part of M&M’s. Then on the finish there are light tart notes, leaving a soft, acidic puckering sensation in the mouth, with notes of cherry. Reminded me alot of liefmans cuvee brut. Overall I actually really enjoyed this, very nice.
