suprchunk (2265) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Slightly red tint to an otherwise amberish pour. Small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Big vegetal and acetic aroma. Same with the taste. Very tart, and funky. Vinegar taste. A bit dry, and very tart. Nice, but I really don’t get any currants.

Scopey (7054) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle from Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours pink-amber, with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head and high carbonation. The nose is redcurrant, red apple, strawberry, sweet pear, burnt wood and leather. The taste is full of redcurrant, lemon, sour green apple, red wine, sweet strawberry, unripe cranberry, a touch of vinegar, wood and brilliant lip-smacking sourness, with a very long tart redcurrant finish. I’m a big fan of the humble redcurrant, so this one ticks all the boxes for me. Awesome.

Bragesnak (5387) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011
Fairbar, Aarhus, DK. Bottled, 150711. Red with pink head. Aroma of fruit and sourness. Flavor with redcurrant and (too much) wood.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2011
[bottle at BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh] Pours a thin, slightly opaque dull red. Walloping harsh, acetic sourness on the nose – extremely tart. As you’d expect, this follows through to the taste – massive puckering tartness with a faint fruity currant finish. Having eating unripe redcurrants, this is extremely close to how that felt. Neither experiences were ones I’d want to repeat [13072011]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 14, 2011
Shared this bottle with Craig at the Brewdog Bar, Edinburgh. A golden beer with a red tinge and a lacy white head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar and lemon sherbet. Tastes incredibly sharp (hence the "holy shit!"). Lemony, cheek puckering tartness. Also quite dry with flavours of redcurrant, lemon and balsamic vinegar again. Reminiscent of Kettle sea salt and balsamic vinegar crisps. Quite challenging. My favourite of the series so far!

SirLimpsalot (2249) - SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2011
Den absolut bästa av de få jag har provat från Mikkellers spontanjästserie. Lätt syrlig doft – mycket syrlig smak, trevlig bärighet och lång eftersmak

gyllenbock (4858) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2011
Hazy reddish/orange with a small head. Nice and tart aroma of berries, oak and some "earth". Incredible refreshing and good taste of sour berries, wood and "earth". Very nice mouth feel. I think that this one was even tastier than Cantillon Blåbær that we tried earlier the same evening.
