Sammy (9686) - Toronto, Ontario, - MAY 5, 2013
Bottled April/2010. From private Quebec buying group.A fresh yeast aroma, with some funk. Somewhat gushing, prewarning enabled us to treat my weeds. Cloudy orange with large soapy head. A good tartness,though builds to somewhat vinegar with repeated samples, licorice, grape. Good drinkability. Nice for the hotter weather. Neat complexity-Johnsense. Oak rounds it out.

Bacterial (2283) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Hazy pale amber pour with a big frothy white head. Slightly funky nose with a big barley aroma. Mild tartness then a nice subtle straw funk. Cool.

Bottle shared by JK, thanks man. Cloudy light brown pour. Kind of sour apple aroma but taste is very different. Very oakey taste with some slight funk. Interesting brew.

bartlebier (2681) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2014
75cl bottle shared by koelschtrinker@kevnic2008’s late summer Baden-Baden tasting, danke! Smells like a fresh, doughy apricot tarte with a fresh sour cream dollop, some offish balsamico acidity. More whispy peach yoghurt and diffuse oakwood barrel in taste, macerated peach, sweeter mango froop underneath, some wild fruity "fleshiness" in body. Interesting overlap with some Belgian ale barreling/souring experiments by De Leite, Cantillon Fou Foune and overall a very nice BA saison/sour/ale. Can still conjure up this highlight of a tasting lying some months behind now - underrated here.

Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2014
Fresh sour nose, slightly smooth. Not deep. Fresh and too much carbonation. The aftertaste os smooth, slightly sour and not too seep. Fresh sour and slightly sweet. Interesting. 10/12/9/10

slowrunner77 (7278) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Different than it is entered on ratebeer. 6.5%, not 7.6%, no mention of barleywine, just a sour red (though very very light red at that. Hopped with citrusy hops that add an extra level of twang to the back end of the flavor. Oak, funk, tropcal and citrusy fruits. Good brew."

Koelschtrinker (13117) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Säuerlicher, deutlich zu stark karbonisierter Antrunk. Dabei auch etwas süß, mild fruchtig, dezente Honignoten. Fruchtig nach Pfirsichen, dezente Säuerlichkeit. 11/11/12/9/11

smith4498 (3270) - Miami, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours cloudy reddish brown color with off white head. Sour vinegar aroma with some oak. Similar flavors. Medium body with average carbonation. There are much better, less expensive beers in this style.
