highlandlad (1459) - Blue Mountains, - SEP 26, 2013
A nice sour ale from one of the globe’s most adventurous brewers. Inconsistent they may be, but never dull. Cloudy bronze with a generous head. Inviting aroma of sour cherries, pineapple, brett and wheat-sheaf. Fizzy palate, thin to medium body. Big burst of flavour up-front but it falls away a little in the mid-palate. Fairly sweet but balanced by some mouth-watering fruity acids. Spicy finish and some alcoholic warmth. Perhaps a bit too high in alcohol for the style but overall a very decent package. Not a million miles from Orval with its herbal overtones. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 14/3/18)

DandyWolfFloyd (987) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Aroma - coriander, honey, spiced wheat, and some Belgian yeast. Appearance - the body is an orange-red, with fine particulates. The head is beige and 2+". Nice lacing. Taste - has a mix of honey, melon, spiced-wheat, wild barnyard like yeast, and coriander spice. Palate - medium body, texture has a slight viscosity, the carbonation is average, the finish is abrupt and slightly sweet and dry.

HPDalen (113) - - APR 29, 2016
Sour aroma with tones of yeast (dough). Pours dark golden with a pretty small frothy head. Taste is surprisingly sweat. Very perfumed. Feels quite thin and short. An interesting beer.

Bottle. Clear dark golden pour, small white head. Nose is slightly sour, taste very sour with yeasty finish. Not really my style. Full body, soft carbonation.

DroolYeast (832) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2016 Tap @ Mikkeller Aarhus. Aroma of tart dried dark fruits, lacto, brett. Clear red brown with white head, not lasting. Taste is light+ sour, moderate sweetness mostly from alcohol, light bitterness. Medium+ body, oily texture, light carb., sweet tart finish.

Maarten1993 (798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2016
Drank with Kaspar 19-3-16 at my place. Not a super complex sour. Taste is a bit boring, not really evolving, just the sour, a bit plain, imo. But then again, I’m not a sour guy.

Garrold (3681) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle. Missus bought this about 2 years ago, probably from Beermoth. Amber colour. Film and ring of lasting, off white head. Nose is not what I expected. This is like a lightly bretted barley wine? Apple juice. Apple brandy. Fruity, toasted teacake malts. Ripe pear. Soft brett. Hint of almond. Notes of wet leather on the back end. Smells fantastic. Taste is funky, fruity, and slightly tart. Some dryness. Mouthfeel is full, with a little oiliness. Well hidden alcohol. Finishes tart, fruity bitter. Like a geared up version of Orval’s bigger, slightly less refined, brother. Excellent.

Alengrin (4083) - BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2016
"Belgian wild" ale, at Billie’s Bierkafetaria. Medium thick, off-white, stable, papery lacing head over a warm, lightly hazy orangey copper coloured beer. Lovely, vinous and elegant bouquet of sweet sherry, cranberry, marmelade, rosé wine, pink grapefruit peel, yoghurt, mango, sugar glaze, stale sweat, green olive. Sweet candied orange in the mouth, overripe strawberry, gooseberry sourishness but less ’deep’ and tenacious than expected though a certain berry tartness remains till the very end; softish carbo, very soft and slick body, honeyish malt sweetness underneath, bit nutty, dryish finish of the initial berry tartness but the fruity and malty, at some points even refinedly sugar sweetness prevails, with very low hop profile; bit vinous as well due to the (unexpectedly) high ABV. I assume this becomes more and more interesting as it grows older and the Brett, which I assume is present here, gets the time to eat the residual sugars - definitely one for cellaring, I’d argue.

Desverger (6723) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2016
Tap@Taphouse, Copenhagen - pours golden amber with white head. Light to medium sour fruity aroma and taste, some yeasty notes, light sweet malt, light acidic, grapes, funky, bretty floral nuances into the finish.
