furthur (656) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Growler, brownish amber, no head, . Aroma cider vineagar. Taste is vineagar, oak. Palate is light, carbonation very subdued. This is quite sour. Nearly straight vineagar.

NikkTwist (2241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Draft at Bru Craft during a sour event. Translucent dark orange amber pour with just a slim ring of bubbles. Harsher, fuller and more sour than the standard Rodenbach. Sweet browned fruits. Blood oranges. Pomegranate. Apricot pits. Sour cherries. Apple cores. Pungent balsamic sour. Tons of wood tannins to dry things out. Not as refined as the original but nicely adventurous.

apickles (374) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
On tap at the Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Golden brown and slightly cloudy with a bubbly cream head. Sweet balsamic on the nose. Quite sharp with a lovely wheaty aftertaste coming through.

dankman (255) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2016
On tap. This is a very pleasant yet primitive beer, kind of what got me into the hobby. I’m too lazy to write much more.

arminjewell (9149) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s, hazy dark red-brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice oak, tart lemon, touch of slight vinegar into a bit of red wine, slight earthy spice, hints of dark fruit. Taste was a mix of lemon, oak, dark fruit, some red wine, tart notes, hints of tannic notes, finishing with s light acetic burn but not bad, slight oaky and funky. Tasty!

Draft at Bottleworks last week. Think of a thicker a darker Rodenbach, bit more soured all around. Fucking good brew.

Draft pour at Bottleworks. Reddish brown pour with a swirl foam head. Sour heavy aroma with berry and a slight vinegar. Thick body with a huge sour up front. Smooths out to a more sweet mixed berry. Lingering semi sour coating mouthfeel. Excellent sour for sure. I feel like I won’t find this again for a long time, so I’m happy to try it.
