Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2013
This was a $30 bottle so I was crossing my fingers. It’s a little hazy and amber in color. The aroma was strong and a little overwhelming but sweet and fruity like cherries. You immediately notice a strong cherry flavor. Dry and very sour! This is a very sipable ale.

Aroma was dry and very sour. Appearance was a brown with a light edges, looking very watery. Taste was very bitter and very dry with a large boozy feel. Palate is watery and dry, and very boozy.

HoppyBudgie (940) - SOLA, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Vintage 2010. Bottle at Swanze Nøgne Ø. Red with almost no head. Aroma of leather, vinegar, very vinous. Flavor vinous, wood, brett, and cherries. Extremely tart and very vinous. An exiting one but my palate was exausted after a few glas. Very flat

Poured a muddy amber with almost no head. Looks like apricot juice Scent of a sour. Tart flavor of fermented cherries is HUGE. Wonderful sour flavor here. Thick & delicious. Not a huge sour fan but this one blew my socks off.

Sample from bottle at the koffer. Thin pink head. Hazy red pour. Sour aroma and aftertaste. Very expensive.

Scopey (16223) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle thanks to Ed at GBBF 2013. It pours murky brown with a small beige head. The nose is vinegar, fairly acidic, earth, damp wood, funk, leaf, natural yoghurt, vanilla and coconut. The taste is sour, tangy, acidic, tart granny smith apple, sherbet, vinegar, dried berry and alcohol with a tangy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A tasty sour.

tderoeck (10566) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 3/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BBE: 2050 - 2010 vintage (2013-685) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear red brown beer, small irregular bubbles, not a real head, dissipates immediately. Aroma: red sour fruits, wood tannins, red wine, earthy, tobacco, funky. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: soft sour start, red fruits, citric, lacto bacillus, bit sweet, earthy touch. Aftertaste: sweet and sour, floral notes, very citric acidity, wood notes, sour burns in the throat, earthy. A bit too sour, but pretty complex and interesting.

3.4
andrepintado (3745) - Porto, PORTUGAL - AUG 25, 2013
33cl 2010 bottle from cervezalandia. Dark red to copper color with no head. Carbonation is soft. Body is medium. Medium to high bitterness and medium sourness. Aroma is wine, cherry, red fruits, citrus, spices. Quite agressive in the end...
