Mortlach (1956) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle shared by ippopotamo36 @King Arthur (Rome), thanks Alberto! Pours reddish with a medium to little white head. Aroma of cherry, pinot noir, barnyard, dust, cellar mold. Flavour is vinous, citric, lactic, lots of red fruits, astringency. High body, medium to light carbonation. Rough and aggressive, but astonishing!

On tap at RR. Little head and light carbonation. Thin body for such complex taste. Sour cherry, oak, pinot, strawberry, funk deliciousness. Up there with the best sours in the world.

islay (2276) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Small pour at a tasting, consumed on 5-7-16. Pours copper, clear with a little haze. Sour, malty aroma features scents of apple cider and purple grape. Really pleasant smell. Tart, sour taste. Lemon juice. Bitter. Metallic. Fresh, kettle-style sour mixed with a substantial, barrel-aged quality. Perfectly executed. Frothy in the palate. Really good.

thomashall (707) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from trade. Dark caramel color. Aroma has some cherries along with the wine barrel. Taste is acidic up front with dry wine finish. Not picking up much cherry in the taste. Really well done.

TH28 (384) - - MAY 6, 2016
375ml bottle. Bottled 8/25/15. Appearance: Tea colored light brown, with reddish orange tones. Clear with a moderate off white foam head that hangs in pretty well for a sour. Aroma: Cherry is strong upfront, along with lactic acid, light toasted oak, and a distinct vinous note. Taste: Starts with a light sweetness with a touch of cherry, that quickly turns to a funky, earthy, puckering sour. Back end is distinctly vinous and acidic. Mouthfeel: Light body and moderate carbonation Finish: Very dry, with a lingering musty oak and cherry. Tart. Overall: A very unique sour in that the vinous quality of the Pinot noir barrel absolutely dominates the back end of this beer. This beer is puckeringly sour and tart, with a musty, funky quality. Leaves your mouth watering.

On tap at Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa, CA-USA. Cloudy Amber pour, off-white head. Nose: fantastic! Sour cherries, vinegar, red wine. Terrific. Mouth: very acetic, extreme, some sweet ripped fruit. Top beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Biroholik (897) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
Sour Brown Ale leżakowane w beczkach po czerwonym winie Pinot Noir z lokalnej winiarni z Sonoma County. Leżakowało przez 12 miesięcy w beczce z kwaśnymi wiśnimi, dzikimi drożdżami Brettanomyces, bakteriami kwasu mlekowego Lactobacilllus i Pediococcus . 7 % alk. 15 BLG

Kolor ciemnego bursztynu, lekko zamglony. W aromacie mocna wanilia i potężne Bretty (stajnia, koń, siodło, siano). Po drugiej stronie barykady beczka, mokre drewno i ciemne owoce. W smaku umiarkowanie kwaśne, mocno owocowe. Zarówno smak, jak i aromat są bardzo złożone i wielowarstwowe. Kwaśny, dziki i owocowy posmak jeszcze przez długi czas po degustacji utrzymuje się w ustach. Potężne ciało, oleista, gęsta faktura. Ogromna pijalność! Coś pięknego! Mega-zajebiste!

10/10 would beer again, incredible sour ale, sweet banana and sour cherry notes against a sour and slightly puckering strong wild yeasty flavor in back, the smell alone is enough.
