wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Tasted on 11/14/13 from a capped, squat 330mL bottle purchased at Woodland Wine Merchant. Pours very dark brown with a very thick, slow building beige head that slowly recedes to no lace whatsoever. The nose is sweetish caramel malt with plenty of brown sugar, red wine vinegar, a touch of bread, some funk, and lemon acidity. The flavor is more aggressively sour with the lemon and red wine vinegar, moving to a more roasted, dark caramel and bread than on the nose. The body is fairly light with some tannic structure, lively, stinging carbonation, and a long tart, sour, and lightly toasted finish.

Bottle thanks to Jeremy. Pours a hazy copper with small off white head. The aroma is leather, grape, oak, funk. Medium body, oak, leather, vinegar, light funk, good.

Sweet little bottle brought back from belg. Pours out crisp amber topped with a s head. Nose is nice cherries lots of wood barrel. Taste is more of the funky barrel and bugs.

guzgorog (878) - FRANCE - JUN 30, 2017
Robe brune foncée, presque noire, plate, pas de mousse, pas de bulle. Nez de malt grillé, pain grillé, café, cidre, pomme verte, citron. Attaque très acide, pomme verte, cidre, citron, en fin de bouche les arômes de grille (café, pain grillé) se devinent. Plate, bonne longueur, très forte acidité. Intessant mais vraiment pour les amateurs de bières très acides (dont je ne suis pas...)

Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-03 getrunken. Ein sehr typisches Sour Ale mit einer deutlichen, aber passenden Säure. Ein kräftiger Körper sorgt für Spaß im Glas. Hmmm Lecker!

Heel veel hout in aroma en smaak, misschien iets te veel van het goede. Rood vrucht en mooi rood bruin. Licht wrang houterige afdronk.

sharkydodson (1658) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - APR 11, 2017
the aroma is fruity and winy with shades of caramel, oak wood, tart fruits and yeast... the taste is sour, fruity and winy, with notes of sour berries, plum, red wine, apple vinegar and oak wood... sour, dry and tart aftertaste...

SylvainCFC (270) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2017
Robe brune très foncée presque noire, zone de la paroi du verre tapissée de toutes petites bulles. Col très court beige, moyennement crémeux, moyennement persistant. Nez acide, fermentation spontanée sur une base de malt grillé, café noir, fruit rouge. Bouche fraîche et légèrement piquante : l’acidité franche convoit l’arôme de malt grillé, de marc de café. Un côté très fruité se révèle alors : groseille verte, fruit rouge, rhubarbe. Carbonatation très fine, texture aqueuse. rood bruin gourmand avec la touche morpheus d’Alvinne.

3.8
BillKismet (4072) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Gorgeous brown-maroon body with a luscious brown caramel head. Nice sour wood-aged brown malt aroma, artfully mellowed and musty. Sweet and sour woody brown malt body, mellowed caramel malt notes and ancient grains.

thellgren (1079) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2017
0.33 l bottle @ Stadin Panimo, Helsinki. Brown, no head. Aroma has a hint of cognac. This is quite sour, just like lambic. There is also some wood. Unlike traditional Flanders oud bruin this has no sweet malty taste.
