On draught @ BBW 2013 Aroma has wood, red fruit, cherries, sour. Teasing aroma! Pours misty copperred with an offwhite head, fading. Taste is fruity, nice acid. Could have been more acid, but now it’s perfectly drinkable. Berries. Damn, I love this one. Soft sour finish, fruity.

Tap at at Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Didn’t rate it properly as I thought I had already done so. Irritating. All I can remember is that it was less sour than we expected and decently fruity. Better rating next time I promise.

Cask at Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Shocked and awed to finally find this! Pretty red with a fine cask head. Rich barrel nose, vinegar, yogurt, vanilla, cherry, caramel. Mildly sour flavor with nice fruit and yogurt. Very nice, and much more drinkable than expected.

jfb (4559) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
(draught) pours a slightly hazy amber-brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of roasted malts, caramel and bread dough, with a hint of balsamic vinegar and raisins, slightly starchy and very mellow. flavour is mostly the same, hazelnuts, roasted malts and bread dough, with with a hint of bubble gum and a slightly vinous tart lemony finish. slightly watery body with soft carbonation.

thewolf (11490) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2013
Tap @ ZBF 2013.
Pours clear amber with a large, creamy off-white head. Really wonderful looks for a sour ale. Aroma has tartness, lactic acid, caramel, toffee, light funk. Medium to low carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegantly tart, caramel, sharp lactic, mild vinegar, some toffee. Long, lingering sharp tartness. Magnifico!

berntholer (1391) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
small beige initial head that disappears quickly, no lacing. slightly hazy red-brown body. great aroma complex of lactic acid sourness, wood, wine and rodenbach grand cru-like. just a delicious rodenbach like taste, perhaps a bit more sour than the grand cru. complex finish with tones of wood and wine. really great stuff! tried at ZBF 2013 on tap on 27/04/2013
