Wolfbass (1053) - Firenze, - NOV 11, 2012
Appena versata nel bicchiere, sembra proprio avere a che fare con un vino frizzantello, schiuma che svanisce immediatamente. Color ramato scuro. Al naso deciso vinoso, sentore legnoso e leggero fruttato. In bocca gli 8 gradi non si fanno sentire, anzi la beva è molto semplice, e va giù che è un piacere, ancora molto vinosa, aspra e leggermente secca.

NikkTwist (2243) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Draft at Bru during a sour event. Poured a murky very dark reddish purple with no head in particular. Sour dark berries. Dried black raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Currants. Merlot. Bing cherries. Treacle. Tart brew with pleasantly refined dark fruit and oak.

Rask0lnikov (162) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015
Almost nonexistent head. No froth at all. Cranberry red colour. Sour cranberry, barnyard at first. Funky, spicy hints and berries again in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, low carbonated interesting drink. The bottle shoud be definitely shared.

Marduk (4786) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015
375ml bottle. Clear mahagony red/brown color. Tiny size, very brief head. Leather, slightly rotten cherry, mold, bit woody and maybe rhubarb in aroma. Woody cherries, sour, rotten fruits and plastic in taste. Rotten cherries and acidic in aftertaste. Soft fizz. Slick mouthfeel. Not for me.

FatPhil (12190) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2015
375ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Balsamic aroma. Acetic acid is always wrong in beer. Some cherry aspects. But fruity and does have some other interesting characters once you’re past the vinegar. Oh, shit, and then you taste it, and it all comes rushing back. Cherry again. Woodiness. Palate acidic and watery, has none of the aspects I love in 3F, Cantillon, Boon, etc. This is a travesty of sour beer. Finish dirty and dusty and dry. Finished the glass, that’s the biggest compliment I can pay.

suurjuust (2236) - ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2015
Hazy red beer, quickly diminishing white head. Nose is fruity, some woody notes, mild caramel. Flavor is red fruits, dryness, woody caramel and a nice smack of balsamic vinegar. And by nice I mean not that nice. Lingering dryness, fruit and vinegar.

ajnepple (4394) - Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2015
375 ml bottle brewed in 2011 and on sale at Supermarket Liquors for $9.99. Ruby red appearance with a small white head diminishing to a bubbly ring of foam. The aroma is sour, dark fruits, vanilla, toasted oak and light grape skins. Similar flavor, mildly sour, mild sweet fruitiness and lightly vinous with a hint of tannin. Medium body with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Tastes a little old, but still pretty good overall.

4 oz pour on draft at Rustico Ballston. Slightly hazy golden amber with beige head. Aromas of grapes, dark fruit, strawberries. Tastes of berries, light funk and vinegar, strawberries, tart acidic notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Pretty tasty.
