sarro (128) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2012
Sole Composition bottle # 87 of 119. Pours a raspberry tinted dark orange with a white frothy head. Nose is raspberries, melon, honeydew, and some fruit funk. Taste is raspberries, tons of cherry, strawberry and a bit of blueberries too. Finishes moderately dry. Very fruit forward and juicy with a nice, soft carbonation.

Poured a ruby red color with a white head. Aroma was of pitted cherries, raspberry skins, vinegar, lemon, and acetic acid. Flavor was big tart fruit upfront, light yogurt funk, follow by an acetic burn that I don’t really appreciate l.

Bottle sitting in my cellar, from, I think 2012. Was surprised to see I hadn’t rated this one, so here goes. A: Overcast red with a thin off-white head that’s got a pretty good lifespan. Light lacing. N: Raspberries and cherries are still here in force. Lemon and ruby grapefruit backing up the main fruits. Oak, vinegar, some red wine grape and leather. T: Bracingly sour; sweetness backing it up, however distantly. M: Light body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol. O: This has aged a lot better than I expected it to. Fruit is still making itself known, and I am quite enjoying it. Though, it is definitely getting more and more sour without the bugs to develop further complexities.

gEUS (1503) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours dark orange with a tiny white head. Nice fruity aromas and loads of vinious oak as well. Nice raspberry touch to it as well. Light body, quite some sourness but balanced with some residual sweetness. Taste is bland and very much like soft yoghurt (lacto a bit overpoweirng the fruitiness).

Hazy amber red pour with a slight white head. Slightly funky nose. Cherry and barrel in the taste. Lightly tart. Very nice.

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours hazy ruby/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of sourness / tartness, some raspberries, cherries, some pale malts, and light oak. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A very solid beer.

Bottle split 4 ways. Pour is hazy reddish with a small off white head. Nose has some light fiunk and tons of red berries, raspberries, cherries and cranberries. Taste has a nice subtle tartness, and again loads of berry notes. Nice and juicy!

RasmusOtt (1599) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2014
Courtesy of Erik! Pours a hazy orange/brown with no head. Alright so the aroma of this one is very fruity and sweet. Lots of cherry, raspberry, oak, vanilla, vinegar, grapes and some funk. The taste also got some cherries, raspberries, some oak, marzipan, lacto acid, sour yoghurt and leather. Very mellow and not too tart but more on the fruity side. Really nice!

Vestergaard (948) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle thanks to Erik! 75 cl. Pours a murky.. Rusty reddish brown with a tiny, white head. Aroma has lots of oaky vanilla, some cherries and lots of raspberry. some sweet fruityness for sure. Slight vinegar. Taste is sour, with lots of cherries forst of all. Also a slight marzipan-sweetness, Lots of vanilla and dry oaky flavors, but only a little bit of raspberry. Slight vinegar and balsamico, leather, and some lacto yoghurt sourness. Quite full body, and a low carbonation. A treat, but could use some more tartness in my opinion.
