adamnowek (2391) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2016
Incredibly cloudy raspberry colour, like a melted sherbet. Aroma is balsamico, raspberries, and some white wine. Taste is hugely sour with some sour cherries with a hint of almond and a lasting vinegary finish. Tart as fuuuuuuck.

rafael52 (1318) - Łdź, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Kolor: brunatny, zmętniony, woda z kałuży.
Piana: niska, szybko znika.
Zapach: sporo wiśni, czerwonych owocw, estrw, trochę rozpuszczalnika, lekkie aromaty korzenne.
Smak: wytrawne, cierpkie, taniniczne, ściągające, rwnież sporo czerwonych owocw, wiśni, lekka nuta korzenna, dość intensywna kwaśność. Wysycenie: wysokie, wylatuje z butelki.
Oglnie: bardzo dobre piwo, ale prze gazowanie sprawia, że wygląda jak błoto i sprawia dużo trudności z otwarciem butelki.

Hoppy_Luke (1700) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Wypiłem małą prbkę tegoż piwa. Ale wystarczającą, żeby być bardzo pozytywnie zaskoczonym. Kolor ciemnoczerwony, wpadający w brąz. Aromat kwaśny, owocowy. W smaku bardzo zrżnicowane. Są kwaśne owoce - najbardziej wyczułem wiśnie. Nuty winne i beczkowe. Bardzo fajne! Z pewnością do powtrzenia!

ClubGonzo (5647) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 8, 2016
Bottle. Slow gusher. Pours a murky pink-hued brown aroma. Aroma is balsamico, acetic acid, red berries, boozy cherry notes and hints of stone pits and coca-cola, wood and almonds. Taste is sour balsamico notes, cherries, horsey stable tones, wood, vanilla and hints of cherry pits, sawdust and raisins. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice and original sour from Ducato; rough, rustic and intense.

Tap at Erzbierschof. Very sour indeed, with some bitter almond. Punchy, rather a bit too much. Almost flat.

Looks great, smells quite strange but what a fabulous taste. Really sour and gets better with each mouthful. However be careful it goes down easily. Lovely beer and worth a try even if you dont normally like the "sours".
