Inoven (193) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met familie. Koperkleurig bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is kriek achtig. Smaak is fruitig zuur (kriek). Geen nasmaak.

CaptainTilven (146) - Nancy, FRANCE - JUN 14, 2016
Dégustée à 13,6°C. Corps acajou marron couronné d’une mousse beige doré chantante, aérée, fine et dense qui fond peu à peu. Arômes de cerise aigre, vinaigre balsamique, boisés. Saveurs de cerise aigre à l’eau de vie, donc acidité mais également douceur; saveur boisée en contrepoint. Bière à part, qui me plaît beaucoup. Très bien avec des tripes à la mode de Caen; déjà appréciée sur un plat à base de thonine.

This beer is so weird and has so many annoying flavours that it somehow ends up to be rather special. Sourness in on moderate level, but the back is so vinegar forward, it almost make you choke. It’s extremely fizzy what make it super fresh, crisp and refreshing. Leaves long sour and brown aftertaste. Like it a lot.

Beachmaster (415) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep ruby, with a minimal white head. Nose is balsamic vinegar and sour cherries, and the taste follows. Just enough sweetness to complement the tartness. A truly outstanding beer.

With its elegant name and old-timey artwork, Duchesse De Bourgogne seems like the kind of thing that’s been made to make you think of how stylish and endearingly old-fashioned it is. Well goddamn it, if it works, it works. Duchesse IS a classy brew. A red-brown pour with fizzy foam. The aroma has sugary malt, subtle vanilla, musty fruit, vinegar - both cidery and savory varieties, and funk. The tastes are complex. Caramel-dipped green apple, citrus, Sweet Tarts, green grape, and oak. Vinous. Feel is dry, acidic, sticky, spritzy. A lovely blend of aged ales, an extremely well-made Belgian Sour.

Dunkle Farbe und intensive Essigaromen, die die Säure erahnen lassen. Eine leichte hintergründige Malznote ist wahrzunehmen. Feinporiger Schaum mit kurzer Standzeit. Im Mund eine intensive Säure-adstringierend. Rasch abklingender Nachtrunk. Sehr spannendes Bier an das man sich rantrinken muss.

Kampfar (106) - Münster, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 From tap at Bierfest Münster, dark red-brown coloured with an off-white head. Aroma of dark red fruits and balsamic vinegar. Taste is heavy sour (vinegar) nearly hot, dark fruits, cask flavors, woody. Medium long finish, good carbonation. Medium bodied.

Bottle. "Colacoloured" with lasting head. Aroma is fruity, plums, wood and vinegar. Taste is much of the same but vinegar is in the front. Nice sour mouthfeel. Good.

Flaska från SB. Druckit tidigare, för länge sedan. Snubblade över på SB uppe i Umeå, köpte med ett par flaskor. Mörk, brun/rubinröd med brunbeiget skum. Stor sötsyrlig doft av rödvinsvinäger, maltig sötma från russin och torkad frukt, kola, kaffe, muscovadosocker. Mellanstor kropp. Smaken balanserar mellan ättiksyra och maltig sockersötma. Slår över en aning åt det sötare hållet, men annars bra. Hade gärna fått vara något mer stram. Salig blandning i doften som håller ihop snyggt.

Pours hazy ruby brown with beige head. Aroma of red vinegar, nuts, some dark fruits. Taste is sour and sweet, balanced. Medium body, soft carbonation, easy drinking. Great!
