brokensail (13234) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a finger or two of white head. S: Smells pretty funky. A bit of sweat and musty funk, along with some oak. There is a strong fruit character to it, almost like raspberries and grapes. Some light grass and lemony tartness. T: Pretty fruity with a touch of booze. Almost like a fruit liquer, actually. Moderately tart with notes of green apple and lemon zest. Some mild malt, grass, and wet, musty oak. M: Medium in body with carbonation that is medium to high. O: Not really my thing, but compared to some Italian beers, pretty good.

Flaska systembolaget. Djup rödlila vätska med doft av druva, sura körsbär och fuktig jordkällare. Härligt småtorr och sträv munkänsla med funkig smak. Syrliga bär och stall

jphartley (42) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
On tap at the Wildeman in Amsterdam and a week later in Bottle. Both times this pours a nice red colour. Has the same aromas as a good Oude Kriek and tastes amazing. Has some tartness and funkiness but very in balance. This combination of wine and beer seems to get the best of both worlds. Probably the best beer I have drunk this year.

Saeglopur (1046) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2015
Draught at Ranzani 13, Bologna.
Dark amber body, with a small, frothy head.
Aroma of barrel, red wine, sour berries, ripe fruits, vinegar, some leather.
Taste follows this, maybe a bit lighter, with some more sour citrus.
Quite light mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sour, wooden, fruity, with vinegar and some leather.

Very nice. Pretty much a Sour Red/Brown in my opinon. Not the best beer of this style I’ve had, but fresh, quite complex and comfortable.

Draft pour from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber/copper color with a foamy off white head. The aroma and flavor have musty grapes, a decent tart/sour character, rose wine, grass, some oak notes, some dark fruit/berries, a touch of lactic sour notes, slick, syrupy feel.
