Nice aroma of vinegar, brown mustard, red and white white. The appearance is brown, off white head. The flavor is vinegar, mustard, vinous, sour, fruit. The finish is tart fruit, sour. Nice.

From the tap poured an amber color with almost no head. Strong tart malty flavor with a lasting aftertaste.

suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Draft at Moeder Lambic. A dark toffee/caramel color with some ruby highlights. Decently sized off-white head that left a little lacing behind. Aromas reminiscent of vinegar, malt and honey. Not so much honey, but a certain sweetness in the nose that reminds me of it. Taste is pretty tart vinegar. There is a malted backbone that is present, but the sour is the main actor. Decent tart/sour mouthfeel that lasts well after swallowing. Good beer.

Brandman (2962) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Semihazy red brown body, no head at all. Aroma has lots of things, sourness, berries, pink bubblegum, acidic maltiness. Flavour has straigh acidic, apples, vinegar. Quite thick body for such acidic beer. Very nice sour.

SphinxTX (2878) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours a murky amber with off-white head. Aroma of sour funk, acidic. Flavor is sour, faint brown sugar, lemon, acidic. Light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Good stuff!

4.4
Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Bottled 75cl. Ordered from www.erzbierschof.ch. Murky orange with practically no head. Complex, vinous, strong woody components, slight carbonation. Warming sensation on the swallow. There is a nice late acidic bite to this beer. Dry finish. A masterpiece.

3.7
Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2011
Tap @ ACBF 2011. A hazy red/brown colored beer with no head. The aroma of sour, wood and dough, with fruits. The taste is dry, sour, some wood with old fruits hints of sweet with bitter. The aftertaste is dry sour and some bitter notes.

3.9
fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Hazy, ruddy brown pour with a thin, off white head. Aroma is Full of tart fruit and vinous notes, sweet malt, light, crusty bread, earthy funk and fallen leaves. Flavor is tart and funky up front, with some earthiness, vinous notes, dark fruit, buttery and lightly toasty oak, candi sugar sweetness, vanilla and a nice light booziness. Medium body, sicky, chewy entry, with a gradual fade into a slightly dry and pleasantly pucker inducing tart finish. Pretty freaking delicious, I have never had a sour with an ABV this high, and I have to say I enjoyed it. Like an earthy quad with a nice tart backbone.

3.8
NoiZe (2394) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2011
Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Amber colored brew. Very sour, but not in a bad way. Very drinkable.
