Leighton (21754) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Bottle shared in London, especially for cloin's 20k - picked up in a high-profile trade in 2015. Pours unclear orange-gold with minimal head. The nose holds old wood, vinegar, glue, aged orange. Light sweet flavour with moderate vinegar character, some pickle juice, brine, lemon, dry wood. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes with some sharpness, more acetic twang, prominent vinegar, lemons. It's not good, but honestly I was hoping it would be worse. It is comical, but it doesn't hurt to drink.

Bottle at L42. It pours hazy golden - amber with a small white head. The aroma is raw, sweet - sour, acidic, rotten fruits, varnish, raw ethanol, wood, vanilla, icing sugar, tar and paint stripper. The taste is dry, tart, vinegary, bit hit of acidity, salt & vinegar crisp, balsamic, sherbet, pickled onion monster munch and tang with an acidic finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Bad, but not the worst for style. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Yeesh... Saw the low ratings on this one and was scared to try it. 2013 bottle. It ours a pinkish salmon color with no head. The aroma has some strawberry, cherry with some herbs, vinegar and acetone. The flavor is strong with the acetone and vinegar off flavors with some sweeter notes of strawberry and cherries in the background. Hints of an herbal/pickle thing going on. Not very good, but not as putrid as some other reviews have stated. kermis (14125) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to Maakun. Very hazy amber with no head. Aroma is very lactic, big wood glue, cardboard, tart fruit, bile. Flavour is heavy sour. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not the worst beer I’ve had, but not possible to drink very much of it. AndySnow (7927) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2016

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2016 Bottle courtesy of Hackobock. "Thank you". Pours hazy tiny burnt deep yellow with a very small frothy white head that doesn’t leave any trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is volatile with crackers, lemon juice, nail polish remover, dry soil and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, sour, tiny malty, tiny fruity and highly volatile. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny oily, mouth-puckering, throat burning acetic and medium bodied. Finish is heavy sour with lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and acetone. This is a mostly great brewery but releasing something like this really lovers my opinion of them. Poisonous... AdmiralVernon (1197) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
