olsvammel (7274) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of cherries and a strong sour aroma, more like vinegar or to be honest "lacknafta". Similar taste. Very acetic and chemical. The sourness is just to much and to harsh. I love sour beer and so does my father but none of us could finish our samples when we shared the bottle.

Rammer (397) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 8, 2015
On tap at Craft RePUBlic. Very rich and and sour. Almost acetic acid. Later appears cherry and other shades. Clears receptors.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid deep brown with minimal head. Nose is intense tartness, vinous fruit, cherry, oak, heat. Tastes incredibly smooth, with big fruit, cherries, grapes, malt, lactic acid, wood, tannins. I even get some cinnamon/nutmeg in this. Smooth finish with evolving complexity as it warms.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Tasted during Nepenthia. Tap sample. Beautiful hazy sort of crimson / brick / red color. Minimal head. Bigger sour taste, kind of floral, a touch of cherry. Mild sour bite in the finish. Light slick texture. Very light carbonation. Medium-plus body. Bit too sour for me, but a nice one to sip on and try.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2015 Tap (TCBW15) (6:4:5:2:9=2.6)
Massive sour aroma, woody and acidic. Over-the-top acidic palate. Quite acetic - it actually burns my pipes. Looked a nice red though. And the cherry aspects were very pleasant. I like sours, but this is too much of a good thing - it’s been pushed too far and has failed. I never want aceticity in a drink.
Rerate: 330ml bottle - shared by ElviraS - thanks! (6:3:6:3:13=3.1)
Woody, sweaty, sour aroma. Apricot, wood glue, sour taste. Ditto finish. No alcohol obvious. Aceticity lower than before, less harsh. Fresh and crisp.

Pyrmir (6196) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2015
330 ml bottle at Hasse, thanks Rolf! Cloudy reddish amber with no head. Aroma of vinegar, ripe fruit, apricot, strawberry and sweet malts. Taste is rich and creamy, apricots, vinegar, ripe fruits, dried apricot and some sweet fruity malts. Really nice!

Davros (3258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours reddish brown with a quickly fading head. Nose shows loads of funk, cherry, woody oak and rose notes. Similar flavours; cherry, coconut, oak, bready malt, soft booze.

jhgrantjr (473) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2015
