mandaritto (179) - LATVIA - AUG 14, 2014
Red-brownish color. Great ballanced between sourness and sweetness - hints of berries - maybe cherries. Easy drinkable beer, too sweet/sour for me.

TtV (379) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle 25cl. Red, almost brown with almost no top. Sour, fruity aroma. Taste has lots of fruits. Sweetness and sourness take turns. Good one!

BOTTLE 25 CL from dcmchew. Mild and delicate, lightly acetic with mild balsamic vinegar notes and a tad too sweet. Tart fruity sweetness (cherry?), some old malts.

Koskela (496) - Marysville, California, USA - JAN 10, 2015
A very sweet and malty aroma with a hint of tartness come from this deep ruby red brew with a light brown head. Tart with a bit of underlying sweetness come with this medium bodied brew with big carb bubbles.

Barwa głębokiej czerwieni, wiśniowy, klarowny, piana niska, sycząca, dość szybko znika niemalże do zera. Zdecydowany aromat przypomina czerwone wino wytrawne, ocet winny, porzeczki, wiśnie, dzika róża, ciemni winogrono, gdzieś w głębi nuty beczkowe, stare drewno, lekka wanilia. W smaku najpierw czuć dość wysokie nagazowanie, spod którego nasze kubki smakowe atakuje na przemian owocowa kwaśność i słodkość, z przewagą tej pierwszej... Jest to bardzo intensywne i nieoczekiwane z uwagi na wybitnie kwaśny zapach. Dalej dochodzi też ziołowość, dzikość trawiasto-stajenna, masa czerwonych przejrzałych i niedojrzałych owoców i przyjemne rozgrzewanie delikatnego alkoholu, zupełnie niewyczuwalnego w smaku. Goryczka na minimalnym poziomie, raczej kwiatowa niż chmielowa. W posmaku pozostaje przez chwile cierpkość i kwaskowość szlachetnego octu balsamicznego.

MarkoNm (2188) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours a rather dark brown color, hazy, topped with lots of beige colored head. Lot’s of carbonation. Aroma is fruity with some cidery and soury notes. Taste starts with sweet fruity feel - some berries, cherry perhaps and some others. Followed by relatively mild soury taste (cider and new wine quality) - actually one of my first sours, so it was a bit of a surprise, but definitely in a good way.

Is the devil's brew? Pours a dark brown. The initial taste is of vinegar, but with an aroma of old wine. The flavor morphs into tart cherry, no, black cherry. What bizarre chemistry is going on here? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scirtes (378) - POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
25 cl bottle, bb 12.06.2016. Ruby coloured, hazy, with beige head that stands for a long time and nice lacing. Fizzy carbonation caused gushing. Aroma is acidic, fruity, somewhat winy. Very sweet, with winy and woody notes. Interesting, but definitely too sweet.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - JUL 14, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2016 A brown/reddish beer with almost no head, leaving little lacing. Aroma of sour apples, cherries, prunes, balsamic vinegar, acetone. Medium to high sweetness and sourness. Average carbonation, medium body, slick to oily mouthfeel. Good but it would benefit from losing a bit of sweetness in my opinion.

theOptimator (360) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Aroma is sour cherry, toffee, berries, balsamic vinegar. Appearance is redish brown crystal clear with small head. Taste is light sour cherry with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Berries, balsamic vinegar, woody. Palate is medium light. A crisp beer but with a slickness that lingers. Carbonated well, champagne like. Overall a very nice beer. Unique in flavor, sweetness blends well with sourness. Well done.
