PapaVillum (591) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 24, 2015
33 cl/ 330 ml, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, flaskepåfyldning: 09/2014, BB 15/09/2019, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 24. april 2015. Brunlig ufiltreret Sour Red/Brown med let rødligt skær og en moccafarvet skumkrone på 3-4 cm, som svinder til kant og overflade efter en halv snes minutter. Kraftig syrlig aroma ved åbning og masser af frugt i næsen såsom stikkelsbær, kirsebær og blomme. Senere fortager den syrlige aroma sig en smule, og vinøse noter indfinder sig sammen med gærnuancer af bondegård og træ. Smagen er meget syrlig og skarp med en let underliggende bitterhed, sandsynligvis fra lagringen på Bourgogne fade. Kraftig sur, let bitter og let sødme. Stor fyldig krop med en afstemt kanonering, let og elegant, dog frisk. Glat konsistens og en skarp, syrlig og pludselig afslutning, hvor eftersmagen dog hænger i mundvigen, og mundvandet samler sig. En spændende sur øl med en ekstra dimension.

Hermod (3905) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 19, 2015
33cl bottle. 2011 vintage. Cola brown color, thin, off white head. Aroma is very vinegary at first, sticky, but underneath you get wood, red wine notes, sour cherries. Complex, quite brutal. Flavor has brown sugar, red grapes, wood, vinegar and cherries /raspberry notes growing in the sweet finish. Interesting and complex stuff.

spacecube (1185) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
330ml bottle, pours deep cherry red with a small bubbly off white head that fades quickly. Cherries in the nose, offset with a wicked acid sourness, with developing dark chocolate, oak and forest fruits. Light bodied and thin, finish is tart, sour and dry. Very nice.

matbli (104) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 10, 2015
Bottle 330ml, pours clear dark brown with beige fast falling head that reduces to zero after a few minutes. Complex aroma of sour cherries, oak wood, balsamico, wine and chocolate. Very nice balance beginning with high cherry sourness, medium chocolate sweetness, delicate tartness and minimal grapefruity bitterness. Great complexity in taste with a long vinegar finish, that is to sour imho. Alcohol is extremly good hidden. In general a very nice sour ale.

Vignale (2383) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2015
Flaska från SB. 2011 vintage. Mörkt brunröd, lite mörkare än cola. Klar, inget skum. Röda vintanniner, fat, lite djup mörk vinäger, sura körsbär, krikon och vinbär, kolaremmar, läder. Ganska tuff laktosyra med lite vinägerinslag. Häftig öl som växer när man vant sig vid syran och tempen stiger lite.
