Yozora (8) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2014 does not count
Huge foam head that disappeared quite fast. Color is brown/ruby red. Aroma of red berries, oak, vinegar, tannins. Highly carbonated (almost exploded out of the bottle). Mouthfeel is quite thin to medium with a prickly carbonation. Flavour is red berries, oak, vanilla, lingonberries, sour, vinegar, malts, with a dry, slightly puckering finish. First "true" rating here on ratebeer cause I felt the beer deserved it.

neuromatt (1130) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
500 mL bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a snifter. Pours deep chestnut with a small tan head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a trace of lace. The nose has notes of flowers, sour fruit, green apples, earth, grass and funk. The flavour is moderately sweet with a slight tartness. Molasses, oak, dark fruit, roasted malts, vanilla, tobacco and red wine notes come through as well. The finish is long and woody, with red wine and tart fruity notes. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, an excellent sour red ale. Beautifully complex, an elegant brew. 2014-07-19
