wihlan (311) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2014
Fat på mikkeller and friends - grumlig och ljus med vitt skum. Interessant doft som påminner lite om godis. Väldigt syrlig och något besk.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle and served in tulip while doing some light reading of Wild Brews: Nowhere does it include goose berries as a popular addition to sour’d ales. ;-) Really this is more about the Brettanomyces and Pediococcus than the fruit. Solid enough pils and wheat backbone. Problem is the presence of 4-ethyl-phenol (aka Band-Aid) which lingers on far too long and is an issue with many Mikkeller sours. This could mature and smooth the rough edges but I wouldn’t hold out hope.

JaBier (4983) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Sample at McNulty’s Bier Markt on 9/13/14. Pours clear amber with no head. Aroma of fruit, sourness and peppery yeast. Sour fruit flavor with some maltiness before a peppery and sour finish.

SpongeRuiner (770) - Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Picked one up in Chicago. Pours a bright yellow orange color that looks very quenching. A foamy white layer is left on too with heavy bubbles. A big vinegar tart aroma that is very funky. A very funky taste right away. Very nice mouthfeel that is quenching and tart. It’s very gueuze like. Very tasty. And definitely left me wanting more.

Koelschtrinker (10951) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Säuerlicher, wenig fruchtiger Beginn. Kaum aromatisch, konstante Säuerlichkeit. In Ordnung aber keine Stachelbeere... 9/8/8/8/8/8
