On tap @ Labirratorium
Reddish color, off-white head with good retnetion and some lacing. Aroma has notes of cherries, ripe fruit and light toasty. Flavor with a decent sourness, notes of cherries, berries, some wooden notes. Slightly sweetness in the final, sourish hints as well. Creamy and dense mouthfeel.

minutemat (6373) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2018
375ml bottle, from trade with Anstei. Many thanks chap. Pours a misty reddish amber with the thinnest head. Aroma has some lovely complex fruity notes, hints of cherries, sweet berries and vinous woody balsamic elements. Taste presents a wave of similar notes with a perfectly crisp, biting sour edge, before a vinous, almost brandy-like sweet warmth is unveiled. Elegantly executed, wonderfully complex sour that reveals more layers, sweetness, fruits, vinous, woody and dark elements with every subsequent sip. Truly a classic sour beer.

Rask0lnikov (1609) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 5, 2018
375ml bottle from Koht. Pours pale red colour. Notes of vinegar, berries, very slight sweeter notes earthy and citrussy notes in the aroma. Lots of refreshing and juicy complexity here. Notes of berries, acidity, white wine, fruity notes in the taste. Very complex and delicious. The basis reminds their saison BFM 225. Refreshing and tasty brew.

From bottle at Craft Bier Fest, Vienna, shared by Werckmeister, many thanks! Light amber color with an off-white head. Aroma of funk, hints of vinegar, tart berries, rose hips. Medium to full body with a medium to heavy sourness, a light sweetness and some acidity in the end. Partly harsh but still in with a good balance - very nice. Flavor of sharp vinegar, tart fruits and berries, some woody notes and some sweeter berries in the finish. Somehow harsh but still highly enjoyable with a good body - excellent.
