eduardovl (1490) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 13, 2014
750ml bottle served in a snifter glass. 2012 Edition enjoyed with friends @PiBar - Lausanne. A: Pours a light and bit fuzzy amber color forming a small yellow bubbled head with small retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass. S: Strong notes of sweet grains, wood, grapes, wild yeasts. Light tartness. Notes of vinegar. T: Slightly sweet upfront. Fruity and woody. Notes of sweet malts, dark fruits, mainly grapes. Wild Lambic-like yeasts. In overall, a slightly sweet and sour taste (not aggressive). Light hops bitterness which makes it a perfect bitter-tart combination. M: Medium molasses body. Low carbonation. Fruity and tart aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. Perfect beer. Reminded me a lot a Flanders Red Ale. Close to the 2011 Edition. Swiss masterpiece

Drukket på dags hyttetur. Disig mørk rød farge. Nesten uten skum. Lavt karbonert. Smaker kirsebærstein, syre, sitrus og noe malt. Svæært God indeed

Glass: Weyerbacher tulip.
Appearance: Hazy amber to ruby body with a thin head that doesn’t really rise at all. Just some foamy bubbles up top with a light tan hue.
Aroma: A bit acetic, a bit sour cherry, a bit sweet caramel, and some sweet cotton candy vibes here. Aroma is rather big and enticing, but not as bright as I remember it.
Taste: Mildly sour intro with some cherry sweetness, caramel is noted as well. Finish is a bit acetic with a pickle brine presence. Semi-sweet like cherry vinegar. A bit out of balance, picking up hints of acetone too. Worth drinking now, in a year? Probably not.
Palate: Medium bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: I’m not sure if this is a product of poor aging conditions or not, but so far this seems much better fresh. Still good, but I wouldn’t let it go longer.

Fantastic taste. Maybe odd at first but then live you a great after taste. Acid, clear colour

Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Poured from a 375ml bottle, thanks to Bryan. There are notes of cherries, light toffee, hint of cocoa, light vinegar, a touch of leather, great balance between the sourness and maltiness.

DialSquare (5186) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
750ml bottle from Andersons on Bent Tree. Deep amber red pour with thin white ring of retention. Aroma are dry, vinegar, apple, berry, sherry, wood. Tastes are wood, berry, vinegar also. Sweet-tart, cherry, raspberry, root beer vibe, red wine, tobacco. Acidic. Moderately tart funky dry finish. Alcohol completely covered, no heat. Awesome, crazy drinkable. Wish it wasn’t so expensive.

mcberko (19805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a hazy mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma reveals earthy musty notes and some vinegar. Flavour is thankfully more pleasing, with fruity vinegary notes, low acidity, and very subtle tartness. Very well-balanced, with just enough vinegariness and tartness. Very good stuff.

Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl #00276. grosse attaque sur l’acidité, le fruits rouge, le bois. Pas mon style mais produit bien fait.

Hazy dark amber beer, little pale tan head. Nose is pleasingly cider - wine like. Palate is smooth and semi dry, fine carbonation. Taste follows the nose and adds gueuzey sourness, a little on the acid side. Light dry finish. Interesting stuff and if it had been less acid I would have really liked it.

freretoc (1935) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl #00276, couleur ambrée orangée, pas de mousse effervescence peu présente, au nez odeur vineuse vin blanc type chardonnay ou riesling très citronnée, en bouche grosse attaque sur la pomme verte à maturation, côté sucrée acide ultra bien équilibrée... Franchement une incroyable tuerie absolue !
