SinH4 (672) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Brown color with big beige head that goes down quickly. Hints of cherries, very light. Taste is malty and slightly sour. Everything very light still. Rather low carbonation. Easily drinkable, but really much weaker than expected.

Danyel (1290) - Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with red hues and off-white head. Aroma is very fig, prune, touch sour, chocolatey. Taste is medium bodied, low carbonation, light sour, kinda creamy. Overall, okay.

Alexanderdahl (63) - DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. pours slightly hazy, dark orange. Deliciously fruity nose with a soft sweetness. Taste is dry, slightly sour finish with a bit of maltines. A little one-dimensioned, as it is as young as it is. Very nice, though!

Lukasmh (363) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours slight hazy amber with small off-white head. Aroma has caramel, toasty malts, fruitiness and slight sour vinegar and oak. Taste is first sour, toasty, caramel, bit spicy honey and then turns quite malty. Well carbonated and medium body. A treat for the money!

thb (740) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Murky reddish brown, little to no head. Aroma is sour cherry, dry cider. Taste is strongly fruity - you’d swear there were cherries/strawberries/raspberries in there. Sour, but not puckeringly so. Just refreshing. Some lingering sugar. Quite bubbly. Amazing to think this is made of grains.

Cirrhosis (1248) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
On tap at Revo. Murky brown no real cap. First sniff is apple juice mildly sour. Beer is way to cold. Taste is balanced, tart and drinkable, fruity with malts. Cherry, grape, leather. Sweet beer, almost pop like. Thin but not flat. I could drink on a hot summer day but then probably die of a sugar overdose. I like it.

Erzengel (4966) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015
*Old rating, best before 04/09/02. 5%. Intensiv rotfruchtig-sauer mit interessanter Holznote. Balsamico-Essig, trotzdem süffig, frisch. Langer, fruchtig-säuerlicher Nachgeschmack mit einer moderaten Restsüße. Spannend.

ajnepple (2990) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2015
On tap at Choice City. Red ruby appearance with a lingering beige head. Lightly sour, tart, rustic and fruity with notes of oak, funky yeast, hay and light citrus. Light sweetness with a dry finish. Pretty tasty.
