wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2014
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 2011 Vintage, Bottle #0609
Tasted on 3/31/14 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales, this was not a cheap one. Pours a bright, almost cranberry juice colored amber, letting just a tinge of light through, with a thin tan head that slowly recedes to very thin lace before completely disappearing. The nose is a very matured sour red wine vinegar with plenty of vanilla and cinnamon oak, vinous fruity sour cherry, there is some caramel malt to this, super complex with a touch of dried fruit oxidation (this really does remind me of an Amarone). The flavor is a bit sweeter, focused on the ripe cherry, caramel malt, dried fruit, vanilla and cinnamon oak, with the red wine vinegar, and some lemon citrus sour notes providing the mid-palate and then the sweeter dried Amarone notes returning on the back of the palate. The body is nearly full with lightly faint carbonation, a lot of oaky tannin, and a long complex finish that hits all of the nutty oxidation, sour, and sweet notes from the nose and the palate.

Rocznik 2012. Zapach intensywny, ocet, wiśnie, karmel, czerwone wino, drewno. Kolor brązowy, mętne. Piana niska, drobna, szybko znika, lekki lacing. W smaku kwaśne, lekka słodycz, średnia pełnia, ocet, wiśnie, wino, zioła, karmel, drewno. Goryczka niska, wysycenie średnie.

Jultsu (1183) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2017
33cl pullo @Tuulensuu, BBE 2042, lotto: 2012. Bott.n.2261. Ruskeantummanpunainen väri, hapokas, kupliva, mutta lähes vaahdoton. Tuoksu intensiivisen kirpeä alkuun, sitten pehmenee, omenaisa, kanelia, kirsikkaa, alkoholia. Suutuntuma hapan, limaisa, maustekurkkuisa, etikkaa, väkiviinaa, semikuiva, mausteisa. Ihan kiva, mutta uupuu raikkautta ja kirpeyttä omaan makuun.

Fules (1335) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - AUG 17, 2017
Semmi hab, piros szín. Savanykás, cseresznyés, animális illat. Savanyú, cseresznyés, animális, vadélesztős ízek, kissé fanyar lecsengéssel. Közepesen testes, alig szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Frissítő, kellemesen gyümölcsös, de túlságosan savanyú.

Större kropp och fylligare men också mer humlad. Massor av citrus och bra bett i beskan och tydlugare brettkaraktär. Riktigt snygg och väldigt god.

Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2017
(Bottle) Red colour with brief, bubbly head. Fruity, acetic nose with notes of balsamic vinegar, caramel, cherries, oak wood, dried apricots, honey, hints of cinnamon and nuts. Fruity, tart taste with sour cherries, oak wood, balsamic vinegar, raspberries, dried apricots, honey, cinnamon and a sour, acetic finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Low bitterness. Tasty and fairly well balanced, despite the intense vinegar acidity. Nice one.

Kleurplaatje (211) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2017
Cuvee 2010. Opened January 2017. Pours red amber with a no head. Aroma is vinous with clear cherry tones. Good. Tastewise its is on the sweeter side. Mildly sour with a long duration. It has some kind of smokey aftertaste as well. It reminds me of smoked food and whisky somehow. Lovely. Medium bodied, Sticky/oily texture, almost no carbonation. Would definitely recommend this one to those who love sour ales.

Na kranie w Craft&Draft Amsterdam: Piwo lekko metne w kolorze czerwono pomaranczowym nalewa sie praktycznie bez piany. W aromacie beczka, wisnie i ocet winny. W smaku zdecydowanie kwasne, sa tak samo wisnie i czerwone wytrawne wino. Praktycznie brak goryczki i wysycenie na srednim poziomie. Jesli ktos lubi mega kwasnosc to musi sprobowac.
