drank at La Morte Subite on tap.... Good CO2 bite with a nice lactic/fruit aroma Dark ruby red color, subdued sourness, I guess I prefer the Grand Cru. The CO2 seems to increase the tartness sweet start with drying finish and seems to bring the aspect of dark cherries and vanilla to the front. Slight Ethylacetate that is not overbearing like " La Folie" in my opionion. Would go great with some flemish beef stew.

5.2% ABV. Sour Ale. Poured out a a cloudy brown. 25şSRM. Nose is surprisingly sweet with peach and apricot and nectar-like honey aromas.. Mouthfeel is watery. There acetic like sourness fades very quickly to reveal some nice sweet dark malt flavors of burnt sugar and a kettle corn like sweetness, featuring pale popped corn and burnt sugar.

Werckmeister (1517) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 29, 2016
0,25l bottle at home. BB 11.08.2016. dark brown color, small off-white head. smells acidic, lots of caramel, fruity, honey, tobacco. medium body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, honey, tobacco, lightly sour, light fruity notes, nuts, light sweetness, some plums. finishes bitter sweet with notes of caramel and light fruity notes. a bit too malt heavy for me, too much sweetness, the other notes dont work together so well with the sweetness. overall decent though.

MiamiBarman (47) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Reddish brown color, a bit mahogany with a trickle of foam fighting to stay alive that is barely off white in color. I perceive this to be a bit hazy. Some fruitiness in the aroma such as plum and orange, but there is no way to avoid that acidic aroma that is borderline vinegary, but nowhere near as prevalent as seen in Ducchesse de Bourgogne. Very light bodied. Not as shocking as an Oud Bruin, but everything here leaves something further to be desired. Not my cup of tea.

Grisza77 (319) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Brązowe, pod światło rubinowe piwo o słabej pianie, która dość szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat kwaśny, kanaliza. W smaku kwaśne, a w tle jakby wiśniowe. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie dość dobry kwach, zapewnia dość ciekawe doznania, na pewno jakaś odskocznia od codzienności, a jest to piwo bardzo pijalne.

mike_77 (4565) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2016
Clear and brown with thin soapy head. Aroma has a touch of wood as does the flavour. Fairly good balance of the dryness of the wood and the fruity sourness.

tightslice (700) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle at The Refuge in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is sweet dark fruits, sour cherries, prunes, light butterscotch. Taste is the same but dissipates pretty quickly. A pretty good first-entry / starter sour.
