Aroma is light farmhouse and Belgian funk. Palate is dark sour fruits. A good sweetness and acidic sour balance. So completely put together and full flavored and balanced. An amazing beer

Strong sour apple smell with some funk. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thick persistent buff head with tight bubbles. Big sour flavors of turpentine, floral notes with some balancing sweetness. A lingering finish, medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Really interesting.

Mesjasz (819) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Aromat mocno beczkowy i piwniczny, jest ocet ale i wiśnie. Smak cukrowo słodki, lajtowo kwaśny z odrobiną octu winnego. W smaku wiśnie, wino, dębina. Posmak cukrowo karmelowy. Średnio w kierunku słabo.

Flaska från belgolådan. Disig rödbrun vätska. Doft av syrliga körsbär, trä, stall och jordkällare. I smak:syrliga röda bär. Jäst, hö, torkad frukt och stall. Ganska söt men blir en ganska trevlig balans mot syran. Förenklat så kan man likna den vid en syrlig cherry coke

The King of this style of beer. Complex, sour, oakey, vineious, in your face. Love it.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2016 Piana ładna karmelowa, redukujaca sie do małej obwódki przy szkle. Kolor piwa ciemna miedź w brąz, klarowne. W aromacie praktycznie wino a wiec winogrono, kwas, siarka. Bardzo moocno wysycone, az piekace w przełyk. Pełne ale bardzo orzeźwiajace. Bardzo kwasne. Znowu winogrono, wiśnia, a na końcu pozostaje prawie nie wyczuwalna, delikatna goryczka.

Pours a clear iced tea brown with a medium head of tan foam. Nice sharp, tart aroma. Taste is crisp and refreshing with tart, sour cherry and a touch of vinegar. Not too sour. Very smooth and tasty. One of the best beers I tried at the fest. Will definetly be on the look out for this one.

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.
