Awesome sour vinegar and white wine aroma. About perfect for my sour loving tastes. Pale yellow body. Taste is sour and dry with some sweetness. Overall a really nice sour ale.

ClaudeB04 (169) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle, blond colour big head. Sour but with a clearly present bitterness in the finish, refreshing. Excellent surprise as the name seemed to point at a pale ale. This was a ’logical’ continuation with the duchesse de bourgogne I had earlier.

Hugi (412) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
Golden and clear with a small head. Aroma: sweetish and sour with something reminding on syrop. Also a bit milky and herby, somehow a bit medicinal. Bitter and wild/sour taste, with notes of fruits, lemon cest. Dry finish and a full body.

ruigo (1240) - PORTUGAL - JUL 22, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours a clear pale copper colour with a thin off-white head that quickly vanishes. Wood, sour and fruit in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium oily body. Taste is sour, tart with some caramel notes. A bit punchy if you are not prepared. Overall, a very good beer that stands out of the normal ones.

Nische (896) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
Yellow gold color with a fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Very tart, sour flavor. Punchy, citrus and cherry. Finish is very tart and trails off very slowly.

Erzengel (3543) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2014
Thanks to John for sharing! Sweet caramel and slightly wood-sour in the nose. The beer starts sour-woody, fresh. Very nice sourish-woody. Like a flemish red ale aged in wood. The aftertaste is smooth, fresh, woody-sourish, red fruit, easy to drink for the 7.3%.
Nice, but not too deep! 12/12/13/12

ThirstyBird (1695) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2014
Thanks John! Pours a pretty golden color with a small off white head. The smell is cherry, sweet fruit. The taste is a nice sweet sour thing with oak, cherry, ending dry and tart. The body is medium with fine carbonation.
