shoulderbroken (3477) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle at a tasting at the White Horse. Brown amber colour with small beige creamy head. Aroma is fruity, red wine, maybe clove, touch of vinegar and lots of funk. Taste is creamy sweet, bit of wood and nice and sour. Lots of fruit, berries. Maybe a touch too sweet.

Anova167 (325) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pours deep ruby red with a tight white head that dissipates quickly. I have had this several times and this batch has a more vinegary aroma than others. Flavor is so unique. Not the most tart, but it comes on a bit after the initial sweetness. Flavor is very comPlex and hard for my untrained pallet to breakdown. Pairs nicely with this Bayley Hazen blue cheese as well.

cnardi (24) - ITALY - MAR 27, 2012
Nel bicchiere si presenta di un rosso scuro ma con bei riflessi rubino. La schiuma, color nocciola, è abbastanza persistente. L’olfatto è tipico di una birra di questo stile: l’acetico subito su tutto. Poi ciliegia, legno. Soprattutto molto "vinosa". Il finale è amaro e ritorna l’acetico.

250ml bottle. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Aroma of red wine, acid and vinegar. Taste is sour fruity with hints of cherries and grapes. Nice carbonation. Interesting aftertaste

Rating from memory at Republic Bar in Mpls. Taste is sweet and fruity but is balanced nicely with some good sourness. Berry and cherry notes. Love sour ales and this was a good one.

RoodMormel (49) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2012
Murky dark colored, with a thin head. The aroma is very sour. A friend described it as the smell of puke (which i don’t agree on). The taste itself is very sour and takes a little time to get used to. Need another bottle to try before i can make a good judgement

Vestergaard (1519) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2012
The beer smells tart with cherries. It looks like coke, and that might be why i think it tastes a little like coke as well? The taste contains much more fruit than just cherries though. Red sweet grapes among others. Despite the small amount of beer, it turned a little queasy in the end.

teddybeer (3258) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 13, 2012
25cl bottle at Alquitara. Rubi colour with a good formation of an off-white head with a good duration. Aroma is fruity, with apple notes, sourish. Flavour has apple notes with mild caraelish notes and candy sugar and wood. The final is fruity and dry. Carbonation and body are medium.

Fruit, especially cherry in the aroma. Flavors starts sweet and finishes sour, with some vanilla and cherry cough medicine flavors. Not my favorite style, but this is pretty good.
