Smells sour and a little putrid. Tastes like sour apples in a brown ale. I do not like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Odeur forte de vinaigre..Belle couleur mais pas de mousse. Goût fort acide, et goût de vinaigre bien prononcé. Bière originale.

Balsamic vinegar aroma. Rather acid with a sweet layer. Pleasant in the mouth. Worth trying.

Kita (1200) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle, 0.25l. Clear ruby brown color with large soapy tan-like head. good lacing and sparkling appearance. Complex aroma of yeast, wine, raisins, wood and musty cellar. Taste starts sour vinous and yeasty with good malty backbone, follows more sweetish fruity with mild spicy mouthfeel and acetic finish without any bitterness. Full body, creamy texture and lively natural carbonation. Excellent sweet & sour sensation...

Brentv (403) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2014
From bottle. Immediately upon opening the cap, before it was even off the bottle, the foam started to fizz out. Very very carbonated. Hazy copper pour with a huge yellowish head. Aroma and taste of sour yeasts. Very sweet. Like candy and ripe fruits.

Pours ruby colour with almost no head. Aroma of red wine vinegar, wild notes and cherry. Taste is pleasantly sour, wild, fruity with some delicate caramel notes in the background. Solid carbonation puts the beer next to champagne or a bottle of good red wine. Simply amazing.

Westkyoto77 (542) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2014
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 (116) - 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 (527) - 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.
