Sampled at Borefts 2016, Bodegraven. Hazy peach pour with a thin white head. Notes of tart fruit, oak, vanilla. markextrae (4424) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2016
draft at BBF, poured a deep dark red to amber colour with an off head. again a strong lactic sourness, tannis notes, cherry syrup, alcohol heat, cinnamon, oak, raspberry, vinegar sourness. horrible. it’s such a shame if you see the bottle prices for their beers, compared to the low quality sour you get in return. bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2016
Tap @ Borefts. Vinous aroma with coconut, orange, oak and vanilla. Sour, oaky flavor. Vinous, dried orange. Bourbon. Malty sweet, but nice and complex. PietS (289) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2016
Red fruits, (black)berries; also quite sour. Also a bit of wild yeast. It drinks very easy. Maybe a bit to easy for such a heavy beer.

Sampled at Borefts 2016 - Dag 1, merci Art. - I’m afraid that I found this lacto-powered "sour" just as sharply acidic (straight vinegar), lacto-derived and overharsh (solvent) as the previous ones, though I tried to like them, see what the hype, queues and price tags are all about and respect the well-hidden alcohol of this imperial sours. - What I taste is a thin sour skeleton, artificially cherry-flavoured mineral vitamin tablet dissolved into a fizzy soda, organic traces of those original fruits devoured by an aggressive lacro culture that cuts straight into the enamel of my teeth the way no oude lambiek or Belgian geuze does, andonly a few kettle-soured Berliner Weisses have done so far. - What remains: cinnamon dust, maybe some almond powder sprinkled over an instant lacto sour lemonade. "the steps involved here are greater than the sum of their parts." - 5 Cascade samples in, I have to subscribe to this, although at an affordable price, count me in for a blind tasting against e.g. De Leite’s instant BA lacto-sours with some more body... yespr (45508) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2016
