750cc bottle from Aeon. Poured a deep handsome red-brown into wine glass, where it gave off inviting aromas of caramel, vinegar and dark fruit. Quite sour, but some nice sweetness. Juicy body, not overboozy. Soy sauce, candy cane, dates. Went down a treat with Christmas dinner.

bastarda (131) - Freiburg, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
shared by bartlebier 10/14, revisited with Konfuzzi, as a long tasting’s precautionary antidote to everything consumed so far - or so it seems, with that soothing aromas of warm, oaky acidity with some honey edges and that benevolent mild, deep, warm tartness throughout.

danielecamo (550) - ITALY - DEC 20, 2014
In bottiglia. aroma di frutta secca, mandorle, poi frutta rossa sotto spirito, acetico. Al palato corpo medio e carbonazione non eccessiva. Inizia molto dolce, aspra poi segue l’acidità spiccata, frutti rossi e poi nel finale qualche puzza di zolfo che scaldandosi lascia spazio a del solvente. Bottiglia sicuramente non fortunata che si fa fatica a bere.

jamestulloch (1647) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear ruby body with with a massive off-white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma of soy sauce, salt and permanent marker. Flavour of balsamic vinegar with a very dry finish. Medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Very fizzy. Sour and salty - horrible.

dresden (998) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
The hell? I’ve not rated this? Reddish brown. Aroma is a vinegar, red wine, fruity aroma. Tart, but not particularly sour, red fruits. Good stuff

puren (98) - POLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Piana: bardzo obfita, pęcherze od drobnych po wielkie, ale redukuje się do ładnej dosyć gęstej pierzyny, bardzo ładny lacing; Aromat: winny, przejrzałe owoce, troszkę słód, po zabełtaniu taki likier adwokatowy; Smak: kwaskowy likier wiśniowy, ale czuć też jakby agrest, winogrona; Odczucie: pełne, nagazowane, kwaskowy posmak bardzo krótki, nie czuć alkoholu, zalepia podniebienie; Ogólnie: moje pierwsze kwaśne piwo - jest super :)

plaugher (212) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep mahogany with a velvety, lasting tan head. Nose of pear and dried fruits more akin to wine, trying to remember "it’s a sour, it’s a sour". Complex flavour, with a mix-bag of sweet and tart, with apple and cherry being predominant. Sweet, smooth finish. Lots of carbonation on the tongue initially. Different and tasty.
