thirdeye11 (5393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2014
(375ml bottle) deep ruby red that’s cloudy with lasting white fine bubbles. Nose of cranberry, light acetic, sugar, oak, not complex but smells great. Taste is a little sweet and sour, cranberry, oak, very light herbals, soda like carbonation, sweet finish.

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2014
Flasche ("Editie 2012", 375 ml) von Hopduvel, Gent. - Schönes Rotbraun, kirschsaftfarben. In der Nase „abgestandene“, deutlich muffige Note über scharfer Säure. Im Antrunk scharfe, adstringierende Säure - eher Essig- als Milchsäure - und aggressive Tannine. Dahinter ein ganz leichter Rest von Fruchtigkeit (saure Äpfel) und eine etwas muffige Note (Brettanomyces?). Auch im Abgang herrscht eine harte, unversöhnliche Essignote mit stark holzigen Tönen vor; weiche, milde Töne fehlen völlig. - Ein extremes Oud Bruin, nur schwer genießbar. Hätte vielleicht noch länger gelagert werden müssen: MHD war Juni 2017!

From a bottle. 2013 edition. Moderate sourness, a touch of sweetness, slightly funky. Still young.

JorisPPattyn (7717) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2014
Cask No head, even not a B.C."H."; chestnut-coloured, fully hazy beer. Wood, esters, forgotten cherries on wood, lactic acid, aromatic as few - wow! Dry, very cherry-like woody flavour. Finish is pure lactic acid and some tannines. Ultra-dry aftertaste, medium bodied despite the obviously high attenuation. Exists saturated on keg, but the foeder/cask version is preferable.

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
(backlog ZBF 04/2013) 2012 draught. Gouden Band-like balsamico and wood on odd milk chocolate malts, decently dried out by lively astringent sourness and very axtive brett. Bit watery, making it more drinkable than its demanding flavour profile would seem to suggest.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from Knightly in Orlando. Pours very hazy/mucky orange/brown with minimal head. Sour fruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is sour brown with hints of pepper/spice. It’s finishing nicely acidic.

marcus (6017) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish brown with a tiny beige head and a sour brown aroma. There is a delicately sour fruit flavor that sticks to the palate. Quite similar to Rodenbach Grand Cru. Delicious.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
abemorsten (2491) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Shared bottle at Nuetnigenough, Brussels, medio November 2013. Label read "Editie 2013". Did not see the "experimenteel" labelling on the back, but did not look for it either. ABV is 6%. Poured a deep ruby red body with a small light brown film. Fruity, vegetable, funky nose. Sour, acidic, crisp and clean. Medium bodied.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
ryecatcher (651) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a rusty reddish-brown,not much head or retention,good carbonation though. Nose is musty and slightly metallic like an old pipe in an old library where no one has checked anything out of in a while. Mouth is dry and slightly cidery, sour and musty. Granted, I’m really not a fan of sours, so I’m most certainly not the best person to rate this,but I’ve had more remarkable examples of the style than this one.
