4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mein erstes saures Bier. Sehr komplex, erfrischend, Noten von spontaner Gärung. Beim ersten Mal aus der 0,75er Flasche getrunken, dann später nochmal aus der kleinen Flasche. Beim zweiten Mal waren die Flüchtigen Säuren recht üppig, auf Deutsch: die Essignote war schon ziemlich heftig.
Kein Bier für ein erstes Date.

I’m not very familar with this style since I’ve ever had one of these on draft. However, I certainly will try as many of this style after having this one. This was really a spectacular beer. I can’t say I would’ve appreciated this several years ago. Very sour aroma - duh! A little bit of vinegar, cherry, raspberry, and oak. Kind of hard to describe as the sour is so predominant. Taste is really huge. Incredible levels of tartness. Nice frothy head and a light ruby color. Great mouthfeel - very lively. I can’t wait to pop open one of these at the next neighborhood party and offer this to someone.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best Before 03-10-09 Pours a reddish brown with a head that dissipates fast. Aroma is sour, lactic, vinigar dominates, with some wood. Flavor is sweet up front, some then vinigar, with a wood finish and some lingering lactic notes. This one kind of grows on me. At first I thought it wood be drain pour (and I love sours) because of the too much vinigar and sweetness, but the flavors start to blend into something that is more enjoyable as you drink this brew. Mouthfeel lacks significant carbonation but has a decently rich body that compensates.

Not sure about the other rave reviews. If you want something very different borderline chemical give this a try. Pours deep brown red. My wife agreed this stuff smells like acetone. I tried to finish the glass, but it felt like it was unhealthy to consume. This beer was part of 50 beers I just brought back from Belgium and this thing was the loser of the bunch.

not generally my favourite style. Nice sour winey nose. Taste is full, not overly sour but a slight underlying sour taste. Good mouth feel, smooth and rich, Ok would not turn one down but wouldn’t seek it out either.
