VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums around bonfire. Can hardly make out anything I wrote down on it. Pours a veiled brown with a short lived beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate, caramel, bretts. Flavor is fruit concentrate. Things I seriously cannot decipher. Finish is unripe fruit, tartness, soap. Light body, average carbonation.

RexTalionis (3474) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 Bottle 75 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a massive tan head. Wooden barrels, light vinegar, chocolate and sour berries in aroma. Just a bit sour in taste, some metallic notes (these were only in the beginning here, apparently a bit too cold) and red berries in taste at first. Light nutty and chocolate notes in taste as well. A bit of tartness, mellows out to more a pleasant drink after some airing. Light sour and nutty chocolate notes in aftertaste. This is a brew that grows on you after awhile.

Quack-Duck (9110) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2013
0.75 l bottle from saveur-biere. Chestnut-oak brown colour, fluffy and airy beige head. Sour nose with woody hints. Medium-bodied, malty with caramel and a pleasant sourness, not as intensive as in Flemish sour ales like Rodenbach, yet of the same character. Very pleasantly balanced, not offensive but with its very own character. The carbonation is interesting and unusal - low in the beginning, but the beer foams up in the mouth and transports the complex flavours into every corner. All in all, an unusual, very interesting and delicious ale with a wild character (reminding me of Lithuanian farmhouse ales).

Erasmus_ro (2387) - Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 750ml bottle #0734, bottled on 20/10/2012. Starts to rush out as soon as you crack the crown. Pours a deep and dark ruby red with a large, frothy dark beige head. Leaves lacing. Aroma is a lot of lavender perfume. Somewhat oaky, a bit cherry and balsamic vinegar. Taste is quite sour, a lot of the lavender perfume on the flavor as well. Some oakiness and balsamic vinegar, a touch of red berries. Oak is stronger on finish and aftertaste. Quite light, could be fuller or stickier and the carbonation is very aggressive, too much.
