alteregoo (1143) - POLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Piana niewielka, sycząca, szybko znika prawie do zera. Barwa żłto złota, mętna, intensywnie bąbelkująca. Aromat kwaśny, lekko dziki, taniczny - niedojrzałe winogrona, biała porzeczka, agrest, sok z cytryny, troszkę starej skry, starego drewna... W smaku podobnie, dość kwaśne, cytrynowe, z niedużymi akcentami jogurtowymi i dzikimi oraz delikatnie słodkim posmakiem słodowym i mineralnym. Wysoko wysycone, lekko cierpkie w odbiorze, ładnie ukryty alkohol.
Kolejny udany kwas od Alvinne w ich Sour Collection, duże uznanie za tak piękne schowanie 10% ABV - to się pije jak jakiegoś berlinera 4-5 procentowego...

Bottle. Slightly hazy copper color with a thin head. Acidic aroma of apple, wheat and notes of oak. A bit acidic, medium sour taste with some sweetness in finish. Medium body.

EithCubes (5662) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2016
11.2 oz stubby bottle, cap says May 2018. Nose is really quite lactic, fresh and zesty but with that intense sourness of a forgotten-about lacto starter, and top notes of glue and unsavory bits. Pour is clear light golden but in the glass its darkened and dulled to almost orange, no real head. Full body, but that doesnt really matter here, this is a true "acid beer". Taste is quite puckeringly sour with cloying sweetness and too-strong acid burn, though there is a really bright fruitiness to the sugar (mostly blackberry, sour cherry, apple, grape). Reminds me of proper Berliners, just that intense candiness. Its an impressive technical feat t pull this off at this size, but man, that burning-cloying thrust is just too much for me. Probably would go better with food, though I didnt try. [2016.11.21: 3.3]

jandd1983 (4017) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle. It poured a hazy reddish color with a tan head. The aroma was fruity with sour cherries, yeast, malts and alcohol. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tartness, malts, sour fruits, like apples, apricots and a dry tart finish. Good stuff.

Strykzone (6938) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Sampled at Gregwilsonstls tasting. Honey golden with a smaller off white head. Yeast and funk aroma. This is funked but is mild. Malts and bark, leaves, etc. Interesting.

Light. Side by side with Sigma. Sweet tart (the candy), but not too sweet. Tasted at my "Variants 2.0" bottle share. Thx Dave.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 Bottle from Ellwoods. Hazy orange color with foamy dissipating head. Vinegar with a cotton candy undertone. Sour but also fairly sweet. Split personality. It did grow on me as I drank it.
