tezarak (121) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - FEB 3, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2017 On tap @ Erzbierschof Zürich. Hazy. Dark red orange. Small but dense frothy head. Great lacing. Only true sour I’ve tried so hard to make any comparison. But it reminds me of mead, just more sour. And I live sour. Tried this first from a bottle and it seemed very undercarbonated. From tap is a completely different experience.

vinivini (1799) - BELARUS - FEB 2, 2017
Tap. Opaque deep amber. Medium off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma: fruity acidity, minor vinegar, dried fruit, tart wild yeast. Light to medium body. No trace of alcohol. Tart sour taste. Fruit of large variety. Very pleasant brew. Well done.

Gurthnar (5449) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle at a tasting. Very strong solvent - acetone - ruining the beer which seems otherwise interesting and tasty. High sourness level as well, vitamin C, citrusy fruitiness. Could be great without the acetone.

fajry (1970) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 1, 2017
Fľaša by Gurthnar. Mútna hnedá farba. Vôňa ovocná, jemne karamel, prezreté ovocie, acetón. Chuť jemne sladká, ovocná, neskôr kyslá chuť, acetón. Telo plné. Škoda, že je zlomené. Inak by bolo super.

Cuso (8306) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle kindly shared by Gurthnar, many thanks. Dark amber colo with medium white head. Nice sour aroma with wood, alcohol. Taste, starts sweet, followed by nice sourness, wood, grapes. Sourness is most probably not intended, but I like this beer.

Mindwarp (261) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 Pours a dirty dark orange with an off white head. Aroma is boozy dark fruit and more booze. The taste is sour and tart not real boozy, but than again I don?t think the booze could cut through the tartness. I wish I had someone to help me finish this bottle. If you like sours disregard this rating it?s just to much for me. At the end I couldn’t finish it.
