Koelschtrinker (24011) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 5, 2018
Danke an minutemat. Zitronig säuerlicher Beginn mit deutlich hopfigem Anteil. Spritzig, geringe Bitterkeit, trocken, dennoch sehr süffig. Geringe Karbonisierung, der Hopfen ist zum Großteil im Hintergrund. Vollmundig, langer Nachhall. Gut! 10/11/12/12/12/12

snowcrash000 (316) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2018
Pours a clear, medium amber, orange'ish coloration with a small, foamy head. Second pour is more hazy for some reason, with some floaters as well. Smell is quite hoppy, with notes of tropical and citrus fruit: grapefruit, papaya, guava and a hint of lime. Tastes rather hoppy as well, with a strong sour kick that turns quite acidic in the aftertaste. Notes of citrus and tropical fruit: grapefruit, papaya and guava, that get a little drowned out by a strong citric sourness. Finishes with a light bitterness and even more citric acidity coming through. Medium body and carbonation. I think it's quite interesting that they soured this with lemon juice, I haven't really had that before. While it does work, the sourness is quite intense, with a strong citric acidity that's probably a little overdone. Still an interesting and very drinkable beer.

[10149-20180225] Tap. Plastic orange aroma. Hazy, orange red body with a medium-lasting gamy off-white head. Super sour up front with a plastic background has a very bitter base and lemon lime throughout. Medium body. Good. (6/3/8/4/16) 3.7

tderoeck (11687) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2018 3/III/18 - 44cl can from Malt Attacks @ Brussels streets, BB: 2/VII/18 (2018-220) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the can!

Drank from the can. Aroma: very acidic, lots of lemon, vinegar notes, very sharp and strong, slightly fruity. MF: very lively carbon, medium body. Taste: super acidic, lots of lemon juice, very bitter, grassy, bit resinous, grapefruit bitterness, don't really like this one... Sour and hops is rarely a good combo for me.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2018 Very interesting aroma, fruity and something undefined, old memories of childhood chewing gum, perhaps? Taste is citric, grapefruit and lemongrass. A very exciting and unusual beer

sebletitje (10951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2018
44cl can from Malt Attacks, no BB. Dorée sur léger trouble, virant un peu sur l'orangé, col blanc. Arôme est chargé en houblons, notamment les agrumes, le tout est de suite accompagné par de belles effluves de brett - et un léger retrait de grains pâle et pils. Palais est léger, frais, fruité sur agrumes et pamplemousse - c-hops, avec un petit côté de goyave en qui ajoute à l'effet suret et le pamplemousse pour le côté aigrelet.

ManVsBeer (12549) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2018
Keg @ Drink? Hebden Bridge. Golden-amber with a frothy head. There's a gritty-hoppy influence to its sourness, but this still dominates with a good fruitiness to its style.

DSG (16320) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 31, 2018
Can sample at a tasting at Tom L's place. Thanks Tom L. Hazy golden. Some fruity hops, lacto, lemony, sour, bitterish finish, medium-bodied.

Beer5000 (7067) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2018
Tap @ True North Bar, Stavanger. Unclear golden body with a medium sized, dense, lacing white head. A bit unusually in aroma, basically a farmhouse impression with a twist. Ripe fruit, minerals and cigarette ashes. Flavor is rather acidic, some fruit, rubber and yogurt, quite unusually. Medium body with a sour aftertaste. Interesting but not great.
