rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Draft at Fermentation. Deep amber red pour with a soapy tan head. Aroma is sour cherries, red wine vinegar, oak and lactic acid. Flavor is oak, tart dried fruits, vinegar and backing caramel malts. Medium bodied with a quick, dry and tart finish. Not bad, just missing some things.

oh6gdx (22834) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottled (backlog). Rubyish amber, close to copper colour with a small white head. Aroma is sour wood, some funk along with dryish wooden notes. Flavour is sour and tart wood along with some cherries, a bit acidic notes and quite dry palate. Quite nice, but lacks a proper "depth dimension", which leaves it a bit thin as for the flavour.

Dark copper ambery color with very little foam. Very sour smell. The taste is aggressively sour and dry. The aftertaste is dry.

SinH4 (1130) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Dark reddish color with small head. Cherries, dark fruits, hints of cardboard/chalk oak, some vinegar or balsamico. Not too sour, more of a full cherry-malty taste. Carbonation is present.

alexsdad06 (7079) - Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart dark fruit, cherry, apples, vinegar, acidic, oak, some hints of vanilla, the finish is a touch watery, I would drink it again, but wouldn’t necessarily seek it out.

ogniskowicz (465) - POLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Na dzień dobry wita nas piękne uderzenie końskiego zadu :) Mokre siano, zbutwiałe drewno to kolejne skojarzenia, w tle fajne winne aromaty, trochę winogron, przejrzałych jabłek i karmel. W smaku podobnie, kwaśność dość niska, za to niebywale ciekawa, skontrowana winogronami (ale bez nachalnej słodkości), sporo beczkowych posmaków, goryczka oczywiście nie istnieje. Wysycenie dość niskie, piwo tylko leciutko musuje. Doskonała interpretacja dzikusa. Każdy łyk sprawia ogromną przyjemność.

Draft @ Brett Fest 2015. Dark red brown pour. Aroma of oak and cherry. Fresh taste of cherry, oak, sour, amber malt and red fruit. Very nice.

superspak (3486) - Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2010 vintage bottling. Pours hazy deep reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart cherry, cranberry, red grape, green apple, light cider vinegar, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oak, hay, straw, musty funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of tart cherry, cranberry, red grape, green apple, light cider vinegar, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oak, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/earthy tartness/spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherry, cranberry, red grape, green apple, light cider vinegar, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oak, hay, straw, musty funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel flavors; with a nice malt/tartness/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy, and slightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Flanders brown ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel flavors; and very smooth to drink with the light amount of acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

Alengrin (3360) - BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2015
Oak aged sour ale, from tap at In De Wildeman during Carnivale Brettanomyces. Creamy, stable, yellowish white head over a hazy copper beer with brownish hue. Aroma of orange peel, cranberry juice, sour cherries, some wood, candi sugar, passion fruit, strawberry yoghurt and tomato juice. Fresh fruit sourish onset, lots of redcurrant, raspberry and passion fruit, hints of yoghurt and caramel, orange freshness, nice caramelly malts underneath, dry sourish finish with lingering fruitiness. Unusual for the style but enjoyable enough, could do with a bit more finetuning, though - the oak, for example, could have been more pronounced for me.
