ATP (328) - POLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Złożony aromat jabłek, wiśni i agrestu (?). W smaku cierpkie, silnie wytrawne, z umiarkowaną kwaśnością i sporą ilością cydrowo-drewnianych akcentów. Jabła nadal dość silnie wyczuwalne, wiśnia już mniej. Finisz cierpki, delikatnie drewniany. Niezłe.

Rex_Remes (126) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - SEP 23, 2016
(330ml bottle, Beijing) AROMA: Sweet, fermented fruit, dried fruit, cherry, very ripe apples, jam, APPEARANCE: cloudy, medium brown/red, beige head, clingy/oily. TASTE: ciderish, sweet, apple, cherry, grape, tobacco, fortified wine without being alcoholy, tart finish. PALATE: Sparkly, fizzy, afterwards quite smooth/oily/slick, some bitterness but not too much. OVERALL: Different, interesting, unique. Doesn’t come off a beer, seems more like a cider (as if made almost wholly from fruit, not from malt). A good beer to try and discuss. I like it, it is fun/fresh ... however I can imagine some people saying it is too sweet or girly.

SkillsFactory (548) - ITALY - SEP 20, 2016
Lattina, 33 cl. Rosso antico con riflessi arancio, limpida, schiuma beige non molto persistente che forma un anello in superficie lungo la parete del bicchiere. Aroma principalmente acetico e legnoso con note oleose, di ciliegia e di uva nera. Al palato attacca acetica e lievemente astringente, a seguire legno e note di crosta di pane, sul finale al legno e alla crosta di pane si accompagnano piacevoli note di uva nera ma soprattutto ciliegia. Mediamente carbonata, corpo molto leggero, texture watery.

Kobracai (146) - FINLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Small 0,25 bottle. Pours dark copper. Aroma is wine-like with cherry and cranberry. I have to say that these sour fruit beers and Lambics are not my cup of tea. So as the girl always says; It’s me and not the beer that has the faults. The taste is like the vinegar that have to drink when I have a soar throat. It’s sour and doesn’t feel like a beer to me. Maybe I’m just old fashioned. Could’n finish this one though.

N3lson1 (969) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a beautiful brown, with red saturation in the corner. Nice sweet/tart smell. A nice amazing, well-done complex sour/brown.

Color rojo. Espuma cremosa beige. Aroma afrutado, a frutas rojas, frambuesas y manzanas. Sabor inicial ácido, a manzana, posteriormente sabores a frambuesas y frutas rojas. Ligero final dulce acaramelado. Muy sorprendente. Recomendable.

SeniorZozo (1265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 17, 2016
Tap @ Hopaholic, Budapest. Aroma is sour and has hints of malts and yeast. The taste is refreshingly sour with carbonation lively in the mouth. The aftertaste is dry. Good stuff!

MonsterMagnet (1175) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle, pours reddish brown with a head that was gone before I had a good look at it. Light sour, dark cherries, wood, berries, fairly sweet. Not quite as good or complex as the grand cru or vintage, but nice nonetheless.
