Bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub shared by Erwin Van Moll. Hazy dark red color, virtually no head. Aroma is red fruits, sourish. Tastes about the same: red fruits, light to moderately sour, slightly winey, wood. Decent body and carbonation.

Aroma: sour, old ale flavours opening up, malty, caramel. Appearance: hazy brown, small, creamy, white head. Taste: medium sour. Palate: sours intensify, quite acidic, citrus, getting bitter, dry finish. Overall: quite like this Old Ale turned into a Sour Ale. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath.

Solid winey tasting beer with hints of cherry and grape. Definitely would be best paired with something savory - a bit sweet on its own.

Bottle fom Bacchinalia, Cambridge. Consumed at what used to be my home, now my ex-wife’s home, in Bedford. Plus ça change. Or summat like that. Reddish brown, hazy as hell. A confident tight little tan-khaki head. Shot through with sediment. Soy sauce, red wine tannin, oak, yeast in the aroma. Sour fruity taste, a bit harsh at first but rounding and sweetening slightly in the finish. Sour-bitter woody aftertaste. Nicely put together.

Bottled. 5cl sample. The aroma has caramel, raisin, citrus, hint of wine. Hazy, brown coloured beer with a big, off-white head. The taste is medium sour, has sweetish caramel and raisins, citrus. Very smoothly carbonated. Pretty decent stuff, well made.

Bottle shared by Menno, thanks! Roasted aroma with sherry and oak. Slightly earthy flavor with sugary malts. Interesting.

Balanced really fine with a nice mixture of aromas, including some bread, cherries and malt. Expected a bit more sourness but this mix is not bad at all. Deep and full bodied aftertaste make that one special.
