This is a really unusual beer. Looks nice enough, with a hazy golden that seems a little bit red or pink. Smells like an orchard. Really sour with notes of the aforementioned orchard fruit, only a little bit fermented this time. Really adventurous brew.

14/XI/14 - 50cl bottle @ Sanne’s birthday tasting (Gent) - BB: VII/2015 (2014-1317) Thanks to ElManana for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, irregular white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: apple sauce, orange peel, bit smoky but not much. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, apple skin, apple juice, cider, weird stuff. Aftertaste: apple skin, little hoppy, citrus, bitter ending.

ElManana (510) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2014
Smells like peaches, apple sauce and candy. Taste is rotten peaches, moderately sour, bread, yeast and malt. Doesn’t really work.

Thanks to tderoeck! 500 ml. bottle sampled @ Sanne’s birthday tasting. Hazy orange, golden, little head. Nose is not bad at all, apfelstrudel, applesauce, light smoke, old candy. Taste is odd, rotting apple, grass, light smoke, malty, rotting apple cider-like, fizzy lemonade, taste is far less extreme than this description sounds, mellow. Lighter, tad fizzy bdoy. So/so, doesn’t really work.

Calisky (1112) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle trade with McTapps Couleur orangée trouble, très légère mousse. Nez un peu aigre, miel dilué, fleur aromatique. Etonnant. Gout un peu aigre, prune, fleur (style violette), vieux fruits acidulés (type coing, merci Jaghana). Super étonnant et inhabituel. Vraiment le type de j’aime. Thanks a lot Sabine

Bottle 50cl kindly shared by Calisky. A slightly cloudy copper beer with medium head. Nose is on honey and floral touch. Aroma is on caramel, floral notes, still honey, light sourness, pollen, quince. Unusual but interesting and drinkable beer.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle. Strange and interesting, this one. Has an apple vinegar, vinous aroma that is reminiscent of lambics. The taste is also tart but much less than expected, in a very refreshing manner. Quite a solid malty body and just a bit of grainy residual sweetness - all that makes for a really good balance. I also got some apricot hints in the flavour. Nice and I have a feeling that upon repetition it would grow on me.

DSG (6332) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle shared at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Erzengel for this bottle! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, bread, a bit of fruitiness and a bit of lactic acid. Mildly sourish flavor with graininess, fruits, mild lactic acid and a bitterish grassy finish. Quite light-bodied. Interesting and refreshing.

Sehr saurer Geschmack mit Geruch von Pappe und einem ganz leichten DMS-Einschlag, wenig andere Aromen.

Koelschtrinker (11045) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 19, 2014
Säuerlicher, kaum malziger Beginn. Die Säure wird noch etwas stärker, kernig, durch das wenige Malz aber nicht vollmundig, dafür spritzig. Ok. 10/8/9/8//8
