We blend young and old beers to make this mildy tart sour ale. Light bodied with a lactic/sour nose and a bit of sweet and sour in the finish. Very refreshing!

Maakun (5600) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to kermis, let’s get him to 8k tasting. Very dark reddish brown, big fluffy beige head. Cardboard, few days old coffee, rotten red fruits, soft balsamico. So far so mediocre, finish has ash, rotten cardboard, earth, gasoline. Light sweet and sour with nasty bitter finish. Over medium bodied with soft velvety feel. Nasty.

Vighals (3996) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2015
Dyp brun noe tåkete med lavt lys brunt skum. Lukter solbær, kursebær, svisker og noe animalsk lukt. Smaker syrlig surt, kirsebær og solbær, lett bitterhet.

Quick3Beers (1236) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours a reddish brown from a bottle, tan head with lots of lacing. Aroma of grapes, sour apple, a bit of barnyard. Flavor is big on grapes, some brett, then with a flash of toasted bread towards the end. Somewhat sour, not heavy not light. Somewhat thin, which didn’t seem to go well, the beer seemed to want to be heavier than it was. Very good beer.

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Light light stuff. A cherry Apple aroma. A foamy small tart taste. Slight medicinal flavor. It’s ok.

Bottle @ joes... medium/small off white head... smell not much is sweet/sour... taste same... boring beer...

Benzai (15624) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. Clear dark rusty orange color, medium sized off-white to beige head. Smell and taste rotting fruits, old cheese, sweaty feet. Utter crap if you ask me. OK mist admit, taste is doable but I don’t like it.
