Skinnyviking (9473) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2017
Draught at 1620 Bar, WestMarket. Medium high creamy lasting off-white head. Hazy dark red brown body. Sour berries complex aroma. Acidic rather than sour berries flavor with a fair amount of hops bitternes. Low carbonation. Long finish. Complex and hard to describe properly. Well balanced and quite refreshing though.

DocLock (10570) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods via the Origlio takeover of Bella Vista. Poured hazy black with tan head. Nose was charred dark malt, blackberry. Tasted dark malty, tart black fruity, with charred dark malt, blackberry, cherry, an overall sour tartness, and some spice. Seemed more infected that my supposition of how the brewers intended this beer, and I will gladly update my rating if my interpretation was off the mark.

Garrold (5067) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Tap. Sentinel, Sheffield. Very hazy, dark red. Swirl and ring of beige. Nose has damson jam. Ripe strawberry. Lots of earthy stone fruit. Some pungent floral notes. Heavy on the lavender . Some background funk. Taste is mostly sweet. Pretty floral and jammy. Syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet and floral finish, thank thankfully dries out a little at the end.

500ml generously sent by Beerhuner111 as a part of European Secret Santa swap, many thanks
Very herbal aroma. Herbal to the point where it almost smells of pharmacy. Taste is dry and has a little fruity punch in the background

tomer (3414) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 22, 2017
At a tasting, thanks, smallish head, murky very dark orange color, aroma of shrubs and disinfectant with some spice and soda behind, flavor of sour bread, spice and minerals, quite sour but balanced by sweetness, strong and a but agressive carbonation. Feels muddled, fair but not easy to drink.
