ACHops (1548) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2012
On tap @ Bambinos. Holy crap does this place have good beers on tap... Anyway, pours deep toffee reddish orange. Thick head that quickly disappears. Strong tart fruits on the aroma. Taste is big: punchy tartness up front that clears quickly and lets the sweet malts show up. Well balanced and quite quenching in the summer. 11% abv is well hidden, I’d guess this was 8 or 9 at most. This is probably my first Swiss beer and I will be having more.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Red (with a little brown) color with foam layer. Grapes and a fruity vinegar nose. Round and fruity body with a smooth and light vinegar touch, little bread, solid sourness and a general balanced woody backbone. Smooth, vinegar and sour aftertaste.

Taboada (1144) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle sample tasted at BBF Lab Madrid 2016 on the 02/07/2016. Hazy dark amber colour with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is berries, slight alcohol, caramel and sugar. Taste is tart, sour and fruity. Cherry and alcohol aftertaste. Next one please!

Keg, 1/3 pint. Pours medium dark Merlot with medium haze. Medium opaque. Thin tan head subsiding quickly. Scent is super dense quadrupal Saison with (I suppose) red grape/Lambic properties. Taste is dense red grapes and sour yeast with a bit of vinegar. It has some sugary sourness like candy and no negative/acidic properties of note. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and slightly tannin with standard density of a beer at this abv. Finish is dry and sticky a little. Great.

after4ever (7939) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2016
375, capped. Pours a cloudy dark burgundy with very little head; dark golden murky edges. Bright vinous oaky nose, showing ferment character (balsamic) and a berry fruitiness. Creamy medium body, nearly still. Oak, blackberries, balsamic, and a bit of strawberry/snack cherry on the mid palate. Pleasant sweet tangy finish.

Duracell (35) - Montreal, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Excellent, very complex sour with notes of berries, tannins, oak. Medium sourness very well blended with some sweetness. Very smooth. A fantastic beer!

CaptainTilven (173) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 15, 2015
Red amber body with golden reflections; cloudy to opaque; big bubbles and and not lasting foam. Aroma of candied cherry, strawberry, raspberry; vinous perfume, alcohol like brandy; very very apetizing. Full sourness mixed with roundness; oily; not very much lasting but much body; intense taste of fruit : strawberry, prune; woody and lightly astringent; woody bitterness that progressively develops. Very easy to drink despite its high ABV. Very nice with fourme de Montbrison, lamb, and chocolate too. And splendid by itself, actually.

SlovakSniper (5463) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
Une robe qui n’est pas très belle mais qui est loin d’être affreuse. Un nez très intéressant de fruits rouges, de vinaigre balsamique, de bois et de caramel. Le goût est fidèle aux parfums. L’aigreur n’est pas agressante. Les sucres offrent un équilibre. Les fruits de la vigne et le caractère boisé sont appréciables comme tout. En bouche, le corps est de bonne densité avec un jeu faible des bulles et une texture vineuse. La finale de vinaigre balsamique est de qualité. Tout compte fait, une bouteille bue un weekend en très bonne compagnie que tous et toutes ont trouvée très chouette.

mcberko (16595) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
750mL bottle, pours an opaque dark amber / maroon with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of vinegar, light tart fruits, some worcestershire sauce, and light sweetness. Flavour is quite vinegary and acidic, with woody, dark fruits, medium sourness, medium acidity, and some worcestershire sauce. A lot sharper than the other years in terms of acidity. Well-constructed and a pleasure to slowly sip as usual. Very good.

0.3l draft at the Lambiczoon bar in Milano, Italy 5/3/15 for 6 euro. Very good!
