BruderTuck (6) - Bremerhaven, Bremen, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016 does not count
Schöne Verpackung, wenig Schaum; intensiver Duft nach Likörwein; angenehme Säure, sehr fruchtig - wie eingelegte Früchte(Pflaumen,Kirschen ect) - schwerer, süßer Geschmack, ziemlich cremig, leicht prickelnd. Viel Geschmack am Ansatz, später nur Frucht

GregClow (3069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Bottle of 2015 vintage purchased several months ago at the LCBO. Slightly hazy ruby-brown with a small tan head. Aroma and flavour are both complex and variable, changing from sniff to sniff and sip to sip. My notes include tart raspberry and cherry, sour wood, tannic wine, apple core, cloves, damp earth, dark fruit sugar, caramel, cinnamon and acetic acid. I spent two hours savouring the 750 ml bottle, and if I had another on hand, I might’ve been tempted to open it right afterwards. Remarkable stuff.

jerohen (2132) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
Bottled 2013 vintage, bought years ago at a Mitra. Red brown colored, small head. Very fruity nose, balsamic vinegar, very Flemish Sour like, quite malty, hint of iron. Sweet and sour flavor, balsamic vinegar, vinous, fruit, marzipan, wood, both complex and very well balanced. Fantastic beer, a lot different than i thought it would be, very close to a classic Flemish Sour, although more alcoholic. I wish i could get more of this.

Bottle, small creamy head, cloudy brown color, aroma of fruit, vanila, wood and some dark bread, strong fruity flavor, mainly plums with vanila and that dark bread in the back, medium mellow and piercing fruity sourness. Quite a suprise, very good and enjoyable.

Bottle, 2015 edition. Reddish brown with a nice creamy head. Funky wineous and barnyard aroma, notes of vinegar, wood and green apples. Sour, wineous, berries, yogurt, plums, oak flavors, quite rich though boozy. Rather full bodied, oily and rounded mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very good.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Deep brown pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit earthy and tart. Soft vineous fruitiness and a touch of acetic raspberry notes. Rich and a little bit earthy. Has a pretty bright fruitiness and a little bit of chewy earthiness. It gets a bit dull as it warms and takes on a coppery flavour. Interesting.
