   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
BrettTaylor (636) - Radford, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Pours a dark rich brown color - bottle #415/688. This bottle has no carbonation at all - completely flat and obviously no head. Aroma - almost porter like, but raisins, cherry, chocolate and maybe a hint of balsamic. Taste - tartness, chocolate, red fruit. Mildly creamy mouthfeel with an interesting soft finish and a slow finishing mild alcohol hotness. I want to like this, but wish there were some carbonation. Based on other reviews I would say this bottle wasn’t very well sealed. Taste profile seems similar so I don’t think there was spoilage.

Saeglopur (952) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 27, 2015
375 ml bottle 2014 edition, from Bier-Deluxe.
Dark red body with a medium, quickly dissipating, fizzy, beige head.
Aroma with a lot of sweet, wooden barrel notes, vanilla, red wine, sweet-sour berries, overripe fruits, some ripe banana, some sweet malts.
Tastes delicious, quite sour, with barrel notes, vanilla, wine, overripe fruits, sweet-sour berries, apples, leather, even some barnyard notes, no Weizenbock notes at all.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average to soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, sour, dry, wooden, fruity, a bit leathery, subtly alcohol warming.

Really surprising! As mentioned by others, this clearly is a Flemish Red and if I didn’t know it I would never guess this is a barrel aged Aventinus. Very tasty, quaffable and greatly balanced, the alcohol is well hidden. Among my favourite Schneider Weisse beers and one of the best Sour Reds I’ve had so far, even though it isn’t categorised as such.

tfredvik (1355) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Pours a surprisingly clear body (there goes my childhood wisdom about the unavoidable haziness of wheat beers), dark copper in colour, with a small head that leaves some lacing. Sour and strong aroma of tart fruits, red berries and cask wood. Complex and lovely strong flavour of acidic and tart fruits, tart red berries, red wine and cask wood. Moderate to light sweet and moderate sour taste. A brilliant beer!

rood (57) - Borgerhout, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2015
Lovely nose: strawberry, cherry, raspberry and aceton. Lovely taste: oaky, cherry, ciric acid, vinegar, vanilla. Lovely mouthfeel. Lingering fruity aftertaste. Mjammie mjammie mjammie. Weisenbock? No. Vlaams Rood? Yes. Go for it if you like sours, avoid if else.

A hazed dark amber ale with a very thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with dark fruits, prunes, light woody notes, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with light licorice, light lactic notes, light woody notes, very nice and smooth. On tap at Farmhouse tap and Grill.

Gachupines (1061) - USA - MAY 7, 2015
Dark brown with a big tan head which dissipates somewhat quickly. Aroma is tart a little vinegary and oddly reminiscent of soy sauce. Flavor is tart and fruity with a fair amount of malt to bag it up. Just a little sweet in the finish though the aftertaste is mainly tartness. Wife: 3.8

JanEric (1122) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2015
Bottle at BFG15, masterclass. 6 months on pinot noir casks. Weizen to the darkr side, Wine is notably occurring, a bit krik like towards the finish. Nice one, but a strange combination.
