maneliquor (3205) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pretty solid but nothing to make me say ’wow.’ Slight vinger and acidic notes to it. Quite a bit of vanilla and underlying nutty tones. Not bad and really quite sour but nothing great

jonnyguns (1042) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a murky golden with a small white cap. Vinegar, cherries & funk dominate the nose. Taste is very vinegary with more sour cherries/acidity about it. Pretty fucking interesting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

high_on_hops (647) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a brownish red with a short off-white head and lacing. It has an aroma of dark and sour cherries, some funk, dust, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is sour fruit up front with a slightly sweeter middle and sweet and bitter finish over a light body.

HULK777 (401) - - MAY 12, 2013
Sour taste of citrus fruits with hints of urea. Makes your tongue crinkle. Where’s a weasel when you need it... (In defence of the sour ale, I must say I’m not a fan of the style in general.)

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Murky red/brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is straight up acetone. Smells like nothing but nail-polish remover. If you get past that, the flavor of the beer is interesting. Tart, fruity, maybe some raisins and dark cherries. Shared bottle and for half the folks it was a drain pour and the other half thought it was amazing. I liked it, but the smell killed it.

EtTuCthulhu (1102) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2013
The appearance of this beer has many interesting components: a murky opacity, large pieces of black sediment, a brownish orange color, and a small white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is overwhelming, for the combination of astringent vinegar and red fruit, which makes it smell like a Merlot that has gone slightly bad. The taste is quite sour, slightly bitter, and slightly sweet, but the astringent after taste doesn’t allow the nice taste to linger on your tongue for long. Despite this negative impact of the finish on the palate as a whole, the flat carbonation, slick texture and medium body are not bad.

tmrmwel (1033) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with almost no head at all. Aroma is oak, balsamic vinegar brett, and sweet berries and cherries. Flavour is an oaky sour with lots of fruit as apples and cherries, giving an almost sweetly balsamic and fruity finish. A pleasant surprise!

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
A - Cloudy brown-orange with a finger of frothy off-white head. Fades fairly quickly. S - Sour cherries, sweet caramel and dark caramel malts, brown sugar, candi sugar, vanilla, dark fruits, funkiness, spices, and some booze. T - Sour cherries, sweet caramel and dark caramel malts, candi and brown sugar, vanilla, funkiness, some spices, Brett, acidity, and some booze. M - Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Smooth with a sweet, sour, and warming finish. D - A bit off balanced and rough. The flavors do not quite come together.

kappldav123 (5107) - GERMANY - FEB 6, 2013
Thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, huge head. Starts quite sour, intense fruity notes of cherries. Finish less sour, also some sweet notes in the background. But a bit unbalanced and so not too drinkable. Had better Mikkellers.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2013
bottle from dranken Geers, dark reddish coloured with very small white head. Cherry, woody smell. Taste: maybe some great fruity cherry .. Ooh, I didn’t expect such a good one! Why are they retired?
