sneevel (71) - - DEC 27, 2012
Pours medium amber. Reticent aromas of citrus, barnyard funk, and light malt. The same in the mouth, citrus, some cheesiness, balsam, with a pronounced sourness - this is not for the faint of heart. Long finish, some carbonation. A good sour.

tfredvik (1849) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2017
Clear, rather pale amber to golden body with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Quite strong aroma of tart generic fruits, white wine and funk. Moderate flavour of acidic light fruits and lemon. Light acidic taste. Light to medium body, dry texture, very soft carbonation that doesnt fit this style at all. A bit disappointing.

apickles (540) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle from Brugge shared with Big G. Pours murky orange with a few cream bubbles round the edge of the glass. Nose is quite funky, sour and vinegary. Taste is sour and with a lovely sharp salty finish. Really good.

gegwilson (3588) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle brought back from Bruges. Hazy golden with a few white suds. Aroma of brett. The aroma is tart lemon juice with brett. Sherbet too. Very zingy and refreshing. A little wine and oak in the finish. I really enjoyed this.

Hopverdju (958) - BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2017
Een geiser! Troebel amberkleurig bier met wit schuim dat echter vlug wegtrekt. Geur: vineus, rode vruchten, hout, ietwat zoet, biscuit. Mooie neus. Smaak: zuur en wat rood fruit, lichte moutzoetigheid, framboos. Fijne koolzuurprikkel. Redelijk volmondig en iets vettig. Afdronk: droog, licht zuur.

330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) as Alvinne Oak Collection
Niiiice sourish apricot aroma. Light palate, good drinkability, Salty lemony taste, almost gose-like. Light malts agre gentle, hops and wood both quite low. Drinkability good, leaves a lip-smacking acidity.

furthur (1081) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle, rusty amber beer, no head. Aroma is red wine, vinegar, malt, oak and green apple candy. Taste is red wine, vinegar, lemon. Palate is medium, carbonation average. This seems fairly sour, but has a nice red wine taste. Drinks a bit like rodenbach.
