laiti (8135) - Helsinki, - MAR 22, 2014
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu
Sour and earthy aroma with grapefruit. Flavour is rather sour with malty notes typical to Iris. Also floral notes, grapefruit and distant woody tones. Flat palate, no CO2 at all. I like the sourness here. Perhaps a bit more woody and less malty, but no big differences with the basic version.

teorn88 (6911) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
75cl bottle at the brewery. It pours a clean rich golden orange color with a minimal bubbly white head. Aroma is tart and astringently acidic, with notes of lemon juice, dried leaves, grass, funky basement. Taste is also acidic and lemony, with more big funk notes. This is quite grassy and lightly metallic. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, interesting but not my cup of tea

tomer (3211) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 30, 2016
Bottle at the brewery, clear deep oxidsed orange color, aroma of vanila, aged vinegar, dried apricots, white raisons and a hint of barnyard, amazing aroma, extremely mellow, flavor of vanila, spices and sour bread. Tasty, great to linger on and probably excellent with a meal.

koleminer20 (2691) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2016
From notes. This was enjoyed at Jolly Pumpkin on October 1 for Zwanze Day 2016! The pour is surprisingly almost not carbonated. Its a ruby-tinted orange without any head. The aroma is really funky and acidic. There is a wet wood and a funkiness happening thats pretty strong. There is a sharpness to it and a lightly metallic bit on the back end. The flavor is much of the same. Its harsh, acidic, funky, and carries a light metallic fruit to it. The mouth feel is thick and syrupy with a metallic flavor lingering on the palate. Im not a fan of this one that much.

bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Draft at Thin Mans 2016 Zwanze Day. Pours a dark, slightly hazy copper color with a small tan sudsy head. Aromas of funk, wood, wet hay and grass, dill. Flavor follows the nose with bits of lemon mixed in. Solid, but my least favorite of the day. Light body and texture, medium carb, dry and sour finish.

MrOrla (2418) - Odense C, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle @ Cantillon. Pours clear copper with no head. Aroma of barn, acid acetic, light barn, quite sweet, flowery. Taste is rather sour with loads of sweetness, and a dry woody touch.

DCLawyer (2786) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Draft->tumbler at Sovereign (opening day, and again on Zwanze Day). Dark copper-orange with no head. Funky wood and tart citrus, wet hay. Lacks some of the sharpness I like, leaving it a bit, well, greasy. Still very good.

Mad_Ferret (1007) - SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2016
Draught at Akkurat Zwanse 2016. Slight hazy deep copper orange, no gead. Nose: acidic with picklejuice, barrel, wood, funk, cornichons. Taste: soft acidic with cornichons and slight grapefruit/lemon, wood and grass. Medium body, no carb almost, oily. Like the normal one better actually.
