Draft sample at the brewpub, Santa Rosa. Hazed dark orange / onion skin coloured pour with lasting fine off white head. Aroma is semi sweet plum jam, spicy funk hint of citrus, toffee, onion. Flavour is composed of tangy plum and apricot jam, some toffee, mellow sour, spicy. Palate is medium full, highish carbonation, spicy, dry finish. Lovely.

Slightly reddish, not much foam, just a thin film. Aroma is quite intense sour, berries still intact, bit of barnyard and funk but also sharp vinegar which I like. Taste has berries and also some wooden oak that is blending nicely. Flavours are clean and somewhat distinct. Bitterness is also there, blended with sour. Just great.

BYO @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam.
Nice dry layered sour. Subtle, elegant. Aging works well, for a change...

Definitely is what it states. High sour vinegar scent with some tart bitters. Orange red color with a touch of hazy. Taste is harsh sour. Tart cherries and woodsy/mossy. The cherries are like pink/yellow ones that aren’t ripe. Palate makes your mouth pucker for sure. Tap

From the corked, caged bottle with a bottling date of 011615. Received in trade from jcwattsrugger. Thanks much jc. I have always wanted to try this one. It is a nice looking light amber-orange pour with a modest head. The aroma brings out wine, cherries, grapes, wild yeast and a touch of spice. Definitely has sour, wild ale all over the nose with that fruity addition. Medium and smooth body. The taste has a nice tart and sour cherry flavor but it does not make me pucker-up like so many sours can. Also an under current of toasted biscuit and Belgian spice with a dry finish.A hint of pepper. Just superb.

Amber pour with hint of a head. Sour fruit aroma. Flavor is a touch of sweetness with just a perfect match of sourness.
