Balazs (750) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2014
Tap@DeMolen. Reddish-brown color with a thin tan head. Dark fruits, wood, hints of vanilla, perhaps even a bit of dark chocolate. Generally sourish, medium bodied, tarty. Lots of barrel in the taste. Dry, lasting aftertaste. It delivers.

jamesie1857 (1225) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
500ml bottle from Struise Brouwer shop in Brugge - Very nice looking deep red body, thick bubbly white head. Nose is a heady mix of sour berries, lots of cherries and plums, with a taste that is the same albeit a little too bitter for my taste. Thinner mouthfeel than I expected, but overall, quite pleasant.

DwarfeD (682) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2014
50cl bottle from ’t Drankenhuys. Reddish dark brown with a medium beige head which disappeared quickly. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Sour with some sweet and bitter tones. Vinegar, citrus, combined with notes of dark bread, some chocolate and caramel in the background. A decent sour brew.

Fritz123 (783) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. Snifter. Deep reddish brown pour with a serious white fluffy head. Aroma of cherries, wine cask, tart fruits, and spice. The taste was more mild than I expected with semi-tart cherries, slight sweetness, a light malt and hop base, and some spice. Very light body, small carbonation. Finish is tart cherries as well. Good beer but it could be better. Wish it was more tart.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 50 cl bottle @ home. Pours basically the color of cola with some sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are red wine, tartness, red berries, caramel, and funk - with a tart finish.

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2014
(Draught at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm, 10 Jan 2014) Dark brown colour with frothy, brown head. Fruity, sourish nose with caramel, brown sugar, dark fruit, prunes and a certain balsamic vinegar acidity. Malty, fruity, tart taste with notes of balsamic vinegar, dried fruit, vanilla and caramel. Fairly dry finish with a balanced vinegar acidity. Medium body. Fresh, tasty and well balanced sour ale. Nice one.

ruigo (853) - PORTUGAL - JAN 11, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle [2010 on the label] from a friend. Pours a reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, chocolate and sour. Low to average carbonation and full to medium body. Taste is quite complex coming from medium bitter to light sour with some sweet notes always present. Overall, a very good beer that I wish to drink again... And I will!
