25 cl bottle @ home. Pours brown red with a thin beige head. Aroma of red wine vinager with cherries, but in a good way. Taste is sour ofcourse but also fruity; cherries and grapes. Nice lively carbonation. Overall a very pleasant sour ale.

Bottle. Medium brown with reddish highlights, lasting head and nice lacing. Smells fresh and a little sweet tart. Hits sweet then you get a hint of sour. More sweet, though. Clean on the palate.

This beer is acquired taste, I think. It’s definitely unlike any other beer, but I’m not on the bandwagon yet. Tastes of sweet brandy, red meat, and yeast mixed together. Sour finish. Small head.

shoulderbroken (3831) - 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 (335) - 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.

Acida leggermente acetata. Dolciastra. Non è il mio genere ma confesso che si tratta di una buona birra. E poi variare è bello.

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.
