zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2012
(bottle - 750 ml) Dark red pour with a fizzy tan head. Tart and fruity aroma. Some acidic notes that are counter-balanced by very sweet and fruity notes. Caramel notes at the start of the flavor that moves to a tart and sour funky note that goes back to fruity and sweet then to oaky and more sour. Layers of complex flavors with a funky and tart aftertaste. Big fan.

Bottled @ Zeebra #2. 5cl sample. The aroma has mango, citrus, sweetness, hint of honey. Clear, yellow coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste has citric acidity, citrus, is wild. Refreshing beer. Light-medium bodied. Aroma is really good, taste is okayish.

12-JUL-2014, bottle in Kregme, from Fish & Beer. Unclear Brown with low tan head. Aroma is tart, Brown sugar, nail polish remover, oxidized red wine, berries, Wood. Taste the same. Loads of berries as well. Very tart, very fine.

HonkeyBra (3280) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark cola brown with a minimal, fizzy head. Aroma of cherries, dark fruit, vinegar, and toasted oak. Mild oxidation in the aroma. Flavor is vinegar and strong sourness. Quite a bit acidity. Stomach is hurting half way through the glass. If your favorite flavor is "Sour" this beer is probably right up your alley. There is no nuance. Just sour. Nothing here really to justify the price tag or this beer’s existence.

Leveejr (91) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
2013 bottle poured into teku. Pours a brownish red with brown head. Smells of oak, fruit leather, and slight acid. Taste is quit sour but not too acidic. Nice oaky flavor with a slight fruity leather. Overall very good beer and worth the price tag ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Lovely woody and buttery sour aroma. Sweet smooth aspects, but beautiful sourness. Woody, oaky. A great sour red, everything’s just right.

Bottle. Dark ruby with off white head. Aroma is tart with toasted oak. Taste adds lots of sour cherry and acetone. Medium sticky mouthfeel. Awesome.

sulawang (601) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Visual: Pours dark cherry red with a smallish dissipating creamy head, thin ringed retention, micro bubbles, several steady streams. Nose: sour cherry, barnyard, cinnamon, red wine. Complex. (lvl-7)-pungency Attack: extremely tart, off-dry Mid-palate: (lvl-2)-sweetness, high tart, highly sour, (MAIN) sour cherries, red wine, red vinegar Finish: oak, puckery, pukey berry w/ mild oak exhale Summary: The intense sour tartness is very taxing on the palate. The first glass is tough to sip, moreso as it warms up. The fruit flavour is okay, but I’m not too fond of the pukey flavour that creeps up near the finish. I prefer the Duchess de Bourgogne; it’s much more palatable.

@Basunen: riktig trevlig doft. Tycks känn en hint av körsbär. Smaken är fantastisk sur men med en fin balans med bär. Riktigt härlig syrlighet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
