BeerandBlues2 (10247) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2012
2004 Bottle received via trade with Alen. Pours mostly clear with essentially no head, just a few tiny bubbles sitting on top. Aroma is acetic acid, light date notes, cellar, and straw malt. Some alcohol notes permeate late with stale hops and cork notes. Flavor is acetic fruit (pears, grapes, apricot) and a substantial malt body, lightly sweet with a dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

arminjewell (6752) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, 2004 vintage shared with the Doodler for his generosity. Dark cherry red pour with no head, aroma has notes of big dark black cherry, vinegar and slight lactic notes, hints of nice lemony lactic notes as well with a rich dark fruit base as well. Taste, while flat, is nice with big cherry, berry, with figs and raisins, nice tart lemon with some slight acetic notes, finishing fairly sweet but nice and tart, funk notes come in as well in the end and dry it out. Excellent.

gEUS (1283) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Bottle @ Heeren van Liedkercke - Pours between range-golden-light amber with thin lacing, no head. Nose of sour cherries, some wood, light oxydation. Taste of caramel, strawberry. Sourness is ruling, sweetness only comes in the aftertaste. Re-rated bottle @ home - colour is light amber, nose is more of apple and balsamic vinegar, nuts, plums, some orange peel. No oxydation, small simmering CO2. Taste reveals some raspberries as well.

cpetrone84 (1564) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Pour is an apple juice looking amber with no head. The nose is of green apple, sweet caramel malt, light vinegar, sour cherries and light acetic acid. Flavor follows the nose, sweeter and brighter cherries and less acetic. Creamy medium to full body with decent carbonation. Rather sweet and a touch vinegary with light carb to balance.

TheEpeeist (3415) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2012
37.5 cl bottle, 2004. Clear pink brown with tiny bubbles but barely a head. Nose is white grapes, oak and wild raspberry. Medium light with a faint sparkle. Taste is sour watermelon, cranberry and white wine; hints of toffee and champagne vinegar. Lacks some vibrancy but still delicious.

jannek (44) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
375 ml, vintage 2004, foudre 132, shared by Mirjukka. Amber, almost no carbonation. Aroma of honey, sour mead. Taste has gentle sourness that balances and somewhat hides the sweetness of malt. Full body, sour finish. Overall, a beautifully sour beer.
