2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle from summer santa koelschtrinker, many thanks! Pours hazy chestnut brown with a thin off white head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, berries, wood, herbs. Taste follows with light lactic notes, sweet apples, red fruit. Heavy sour, quite sharp really, fairly sweet, slick texture, alcohol completely hidden.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Different but an acquired taste. Sour vinegar and fruit aroma. Cloudy copper color. Weighty palate with a certain tart finish. Flavors of sourness, vinegar, spice and Belgian yeast. Malt was bready and hops low. Funky.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle (great label!). Pours muddy brown with a small stable eggshell white head. Rather incongruous aromas of tart sour cherries, red wine vinegar, Trappist-style yeasts, warming alcohol and sweet caramel malts. Taste is initially quite sour with the sweetness of the quad-style malts gradually emerging on the mid to late palate. It is more sour than sweet though it becomes sweeter as it warms in the glass. Mouthfeel is fullish and slick. An interesting take on a hybrid quad/sour beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2015 "started out a bit all over the place with something a little off in the aroma, and a little in the flavor. but that faded, and what was left was indeed similar to the classic Rodenbach sweet and sour, but to the extreme. Almost a berry-like sweetness and extreme sourdough taste. Vinegary on the nose. Acidic, but a super soft palalte. This one really grew on me. Can’t remember what I paid. I’m sure it was too high, but it’s a nice one timer for sure. Maybe a buddy’ll pick up another :)"

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich brown colour, hardly any head. Very sour almost blows your head off on first sip, intense sour flavours with mild fruit, corresponding sips are much more pleasant, impressive balance, very interesting beer.
