Benzai (14654) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle shared @ Borefts Pre-tasting. Hazy autumnal reddish color, small off-white to beige head. Aroma reminds me of red wine, wood and oak. Taste red wine, wood, oak, moderately sour, wood sour. Not a beer for the faint hearted for sure, but it’s quite nice.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Bottle: Poured a hazy reddish color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of vinous notes with oak and cherry with some tart notes is quite nice. Taste is a nice mix of cherry and oak with some tart notes and a vinous feel. Body is full with good carbonation. Nice level of complexity with some great drinkability.

jkwood04 (5351) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2015
750ml bottle in a mason jar. Pours amber/red with an off-white head. Aroma of sourness/funkiness, some dark fruits, oak and light notes of vanilla, some notes of caramel and light sweetness from the malts. An incredible balance of the sour and oak and dark fruits/malts. Average texture. A great beer.

anstei (1458) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2015
37,5cl bottle from Erzbierschof. A classic among Swiss craft beers, and well earned at that. Its sourness is a challenge to the newcomer, but it is not out of bounds and actually well harmonized with everything else this beer has to offer. One of the best beers for a hot summer day. Better taste, buy worse nose than the 2013.

SinH4 (3639) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Tasted a few times. This was my first SBC ever. Amber color with white ring. Most recent tasting July 20, 2015. More fresh fruits than old sweet fruits than the 2013. Good sourness and good compexity, great how it’s made together.
