madmitch76 (22055) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
4th March 2010. Pre ZBF. Opaque black beer. Light brown frothy head - short lived. Sourish nose. Sharp vinegary sourness with an acid edge - but remains pretty drinkable even for a non sour lover.

Travlr (21421) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Tasted after just one week in the bottle, courtesy of Urbain at the schoolhouse. Nearly black, beige head, great lacing. Has prunes obviously, port wine, red wine vinegar. Very pleasant sourness. Subtle and complex, a ton of character. Already a shockingly good brew, I would love to see it mature.

Koelschtrinker (17288) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Säuerlich ausgereifter Antrunk mit dezenten und säuerlichen Fruchtnoten von Pflaumen und Kirsche, konstant und ausgewogen. Das Bier ist wenig holzig, die hintergründige Säuerlichkeit wird intensiver oder gar agressiv. Auch die vorhandene Erdigkeit bleibt konstant. Sehr süffig, zum Ende wieder fruchtig, dazu passend malzig. Ein süffiges und tiefgehendes Bier, bei dem es viel zu entdecken gibt! 11/11/11/9//11

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
On tap at Pre ZBF 2010. I had this straight after the regular Earthmonk and I have to admit that I found this just a bit too sour. It isn’t quite as balanced as the regular Earthmonk. Still a really good Flemish sour beer, with a touch of salt and vinegar crisp sourness to it. I’d still drink it over most beers, but I’d prefer the straight Earthmonk
