Bottle to snifter. Pours a deep amber with a short lasting thin foam head. Aroma of sour fermenting grapes, vanilla, vinegar . Taste is light and pleasantly super sour and tart. Sour flavor so strong you can taste it on your lips after a small sip for a while. Strong yeast character with a dry finish. Nice balance, light Mouthfeel.

Ciemno rubinowe piwo o średnie pianie, która pozostaje do końca w formie mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat kwaśnych wiśni, taki pestek od wiśni nawet, dla mnie bardzo przyjemny. W smaku intensywnie kwaśne, cytrynowe. Goryczka jak to w belgijskim kwachu niska. Ogólnie bardzo fajne piwo o fajnym aromacie i kwaśności powyżej przeciętnej jak dla mnie.

AleRider78 (1333) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
Pours a thin frothy off-white head and has a dark amber appearance. Lacing is pretty weak. Roasted malt and somewhat sour aromas. A little bit of spices. Very sour mouthfeel especially in the finish. Very strong sour/tangy flavours. Lemon and lime are in the mix. Some strong spiced hops in there as well. Excessive carbonation. Medium retention. Not something I would have more than one bottle of, but still pretty good.

Aroma is caramel, overripe cherries, light bread. Taste is sour, but with some hints of fruity sweetness. Nice! Candy notes linger, along with sharp lemon, and some caramel.

From a 11.2 oz bottle aged at least 5 years. Pours copper brown with hardly any head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, cherries, citrus zest. Modest carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of tart cherries, vinegar, slight lemon, subtle wood. Overall flavorful, refreshing, smooth yet tantalizing and tasty for the style.

Slight haze, reddish-brown, thin bubbly head. Oaky nose, slight balsamic, touch of dried dark fruits. A bit thin, but some nice oaky notes, dark fruits, touch of lactic acidity in the finish.

Dahlstrom (408) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2017
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark ruby color with a white head. Aroma is very sour, backed-up by caramel, cherries and wood. Very very sour, moderately sweet. Medium body.

Zlotta (3419) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2017
0.33 l bottle from former ’Firma Bier’, best before September 2017, cellared for two years. Clear, deep red with a thin, frothy, almost stable, off-white head. Slightly sweetish, moderately sourish, rather fruity aroma of sour cherries, caramel, red grapes, massive oak and balsamic vinegar. Slightly sweetish, quite sour, fruity and quite woody taste of lots of oak, caramel, balsamic vinegar, sour cherries, red grapes and some bitter almond, followed by a medium long, rather tart, very woody-dry and vinous finish. Medium body, moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Rather intense and complex, but also refreshing and tasty Flemish Red. Quite vinegary, but not out of balance, overall a delicious beer.
