ThirstyBird (1940) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2015
Pours a super dark brown with a tan head. The smell is worcestershire, dark fruit, cherry, touch of licorice - a lot going on. The taste is huge dark fruity sour, vinegar, wood, cherry ending very dry and tart...very complex stuff. The body medium and well carbonated.

330ml bottle - shared by martjoobolut and sister - thanks!
Sharp sour brun aroma initially, woody, winey, cherry. Deep red, small head. Some woody esters/glueiness in the taste, and a bizarre out of place roast too. A curious mix, not quite working for me. Acidity quite high, a little harsh. Finish a little grapey, cherry, and red woods.

I generally like sours alot, but this one i just don’t get. Its to much vinegar and especially acetone in the taste which just kills it for me. this is just about OK.

bastarda (147) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
1st yeast kidnap trial; layered morpher of a beer: from the gluey/cheese notes of fresh cut wood softening into young Bourbon flattening into cheap rum-raisin chocolate bars with emerging overripe raspberries and blackcurrants.

Muggus69 (1362) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2015
330mL bottle from Slowbeer. Bottled 09/2014 Deep bronze body, holds a dense tan head. Nose is intense, vinous - red fruits, balsamic, bruised apple/acetaldehyde, old barrel (room), burnt toffee, lactic undertones. Dry body, red-wine like acidity, even a touch of tannin, full yet delicate somewhat, rather textual. This has some proper funk! Dank wood, red delicious apple, sultana, yoghurt, balsamic vinegar, mushroom, brown sugar, wildly fermented cider - seriously out there. Wow, wasn’t expecting this - one of the most wild, funky beers i’ve come across.

Leighton (13032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle shared at chriso’s pre-Christmas tasting 2014 - London. Pours clear brown with a foamy tan head. The nose holds lacquer, varnish, vinegar, nail polish remover. Light to medium sweet flavor with big balsamic vinegar character, some dark fruits, brown sugar, moderate varnish, earth, burnt wood. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Burning acetic finish with buckets of balsamic, some tannins, sweat. No balance, not very drinkable.
