pours light copper with small white head. nose is very interesting - it’s all sour, tart fruits and acidity with hints of grain and funk. there’s a good amount of tartness when you first taste it, but that makes way for some sweeter fruit notes, including apple, grape, and cherry; quite like a cider at times. finishes more sour than sweet with a bit of stickiness.

Bière brune avec fine mousse blanche. Elle sent le liège sûrement dû au bouchon. Au goût elle est acide et sucrée. Très bonne bière.

17Beer (185) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2016
Yeasty, barnyard and sour scents. Pours a cloudy bright brown with a thin off-white head quickly dissipated. Huge round tastes of sour apple with sweet tart lingering finish. Oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice arresting big flavors. I really like it.

bouteille 75 cl - couleur ambrée assez sombre, odeur boisée, de sucre, goût sucré sur le sucre candi, une légère acidité, fruité et boisé, bonne mais peut vite devenir écoeurante

beer-yum (1242) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2016
Restrained aroma in a reddish copper pour. Tart taste to start is soon joined by a sweet body to balance and makes for a refreshingly different beer.

nazbion (275) - Tübingen, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2016
Pours clear dark amber with thin, short-lived, white head. Acetic and sweet nose, reminding some red and black berries. Taste is very sweet and medium sour. Light body, soft carbonation. I can’t drink more than 25cl.

JackMandarin (166) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle from Great Grog, Edin. Pours reddish amber with a brief sight of head and effervescence leaving a flat looking glass. Aroma is not entirely pleasant. Cheesy feet. Bit of sick. Old, wet wood. Red berries. Mulling spice. A little medicinal. All over the place but the some of it’s parts is not for me! Taste has a red-flavoured candy soda sweetness to start. Some lactic cheek tweaking notes come in. Lightly sour. More tart. That candy sweetness is too much. Very, very light carbonation. Medium to light body. Not. For. Me.

Scrumpy369 (312) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2016 Bottle at matroz kocsma. Dark amber colour, small white head disappears immediately. Nose is semi dry champagne. Taste is medium to high sweetness with low biterrness. Overall a semi-dry (or semi sweet) champagne. Shame I don’t like semi sweet champagne.
