Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - NOV 19, 2010
A nice pink-red with barely no head. The aroma is vinyl, red fruits, some vinegar. The taste is extremely sour, harsh and dry. Lack elegance.

heavy (2265) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 17, 2010
2/10 0.33 l can courtesy of Marko, thanks! It poured murky brown-orange-reddish body with smaller head that went down soon. Vinegar aroma, only a little bit of sour cherry; strange and harsh, yet nice and elegant. Very sour, typical wild lambic sourness dominates the flavor, cherry is only slightly present, no mercy for sweetness here. Medium body, with, of course, long sour cherry finish which was actually very nice and showed all the qualities of this brew. Alcohol...perfectly hidden! Those are the ales you simply like or not, you can enjoy in one or find it completely pesky. I don’t mind having one, such a good sour ale/lambic.

caesar (5595) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2010
Bottled. Hazy reddish amber color, short head. Aroma is tart, cherry, cheesy, barnyard. Extremely harsh sour taste, very very acidic. Too much for my esophagus.

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2010
Dark red colored brew. Sour aroma. A lot of sourness in the flavor. Some cherries and alcohol. Too much sourness for my stomach.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle thanks to Papsoe. Pours a very cloudy dark copper with very small beige coloured head. Fades away very quickly leaving no lacing and no head what so ever. Big aromas to say the least. Heaps and heaps of sour cherry, vinegar and acetone. Very tart and sour. Good stuff. Flavours are dominated by vinegar sourness and lemon juice acidity. Very dry finish. The sourness hangs on for a will. Good mouthfeel. Super sour. Great beer,
