Vynikající a velice zajímavá zkušenost. Příjemné aroma s tóny citronu, jablka, silnější říz, jemná, déle držící pěna a lahodná chuť.

Jado (803) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Clear caramel-amber body with a thin but lasting white head. Funk, stone fruit, lemon and a vinegary sourness in the nose. Taste is brightly sour up front, but lots of peach and plum follow it up. Bit of pepper in there too. Clean finish with a spicy aftertaste. A pretty awesome sour beer.

StoutPriestess (10) - Prescott, Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2017 What a lovely beer. Big funk in the nose, barnyardy and aromatic. Lively, light body opens flavors of blue cheese, sourdough yeast, apple skin, and hay. Finishes dry.

3 finger eggshell head, amber body. Nose: Barnyard, hay, vinegar, funk-notes, aged cheese, yeast and green apples. Taste: Aged cheese-notes, yeast, vinegar, funk-notes, green apples, white bread, hay, grassy notes and hint of cider and champagne. Semi-long dry ending with low bitterness.

Interesting stuff - red fruits, funk and light acetic notes. Complex red fruit and vinous notes with some residual sweetness and tart finish.

Jashiu (1403) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUL 20, 2017
Lovely red fruit aromas with nice funky scents coming through, light vinegar. Taste is amazingly full of red dark fruit, pleasantly sour with a distinctive pit bitterness and amazing fruity complexity. Very good beer.

Half pint from Moeder lambic. Notes of hey and horse blanket. Slightly sweet with notes of Meyer lemon and orange. Nice.

kaserov (880) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2017
Color naranja, opaco, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (burbujas enormes y poca retención; queda un velo blanco de espuma que no se disipa del todo). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa y algo viscosa. Aroma ácido (tira ligeramente a vinagre), especiado, con la madera muy presente. En boca es ácida desde un inicio (la acidez está increíblemente bien medida, en el punto exacto en que no se queda corta ni te hace fruncir el ceño o cerrar los ojos debido a su fuerza). Mucha madera, ligeros toques frutales, especias. Me cuesta creer que tanta gente esté diciendo que sabe a naranja y limón (entre otras cosas). Me sería imposible discernir hoy o dentro de ciento cincuenta años a qué frutas sabe. Pero aplaudo a quien lo consiga, aunque no considero que haya naranja o limón ni nada parecido. Final especiado y seco. No se puede hablar de amargor. Postgusto ácido suave y especiado. Muy buena.

F: medium size, egg-white, average retention. C: amber with orange hue, hazy. A: fruity, barnyard, woody, bit of basement, brett, vinegar, bit of white, wine, complex. T: barnyard, fruity, tarty, woody, brett, green apple, lemon, vinous, complex, medium to full body, low to medium carbonation, very refreshing complex but not too heavy beer, really enjoyed, 75cl bottle from BelgoMarkt in Brussels.

nihtila (3731) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Cloudy orange. Nose is fermented apples, grapes, wood, funk, tart. Tastes tart and gently sour, dryish, wood, vinous, funky. Good.
