TEJA (3255) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from Charles C,thanks. Short brown head. Very clowdy brown beer. Nice acidity in the aroma blended with a woody hop. Fine acidity with fresh fruity taste and a tiny sweetness. jamestulloch (4327) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with no head. Low carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of raspberry vinegar, orange sherbet and foam bananas. Flavour is extremely sour - underripe plum, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. Interesting aroma but bordering on undrinkable. Far too tart to be enjoyable. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is nice, fruity, bit dusty and musty. Taste is good, nice, marzipan, brown sugar, initial puckering sourness. Finish is more fruity and with some maltiness hiding. Nice. peponi (2011) - Strzelce Wielkie, POLAND - FEB 5, 2015
Aroma: barn, sour, phenols.
Appearance: clear, copper color, no head.
Taste: low bitterness, really sour, barn, bandage, dark malts.
Palate: low body and medium carbonation, sour finish.
Overall: One-dimensional sour beer, intensive wild notes, I expected something more. maekchu (4054) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Fruity nose of cherries and light sweet fruit, some funk. Thin reddish brown color. Smooth but tart initial, some vinegar, berries, Brett, and gentle maltiness in finish. Thin body and quite crisp. Not a bomb of acid tartness, but full of moderated flavors. Nice stuff.

750ml bottle pours an amber orange color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon and yeast. Taste is sour lemons with some dry yeasty notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, sour lemons and yeast in a bottle. This brew needs more malt and/or hops to balance out the sourness. A well crafted brew that just misses the mark. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2014
4oz pour on tap at Liberty’s, for $4.50. Dark fruit, vanilla, mild vinous character up front in the aroma, just a touch of vinegar. Some cherry and chocolate. Pour does not look very impressive at all. Pours with a minimal ring of bubbly head, which quickly fades to nothing. Hazy dark brown red color. Palate is also very light on carbonation, too, but its not too bothersome. Satisfying bigger body, kind of slick finish. Works. Moderate sweet taste, moderate tart, good woody character. Lightly spicy. Mild saltiness? Enjoyable flemish red style. JorisPPattyn (10063) - BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
Fast gone off-white head over copperish-ruby beer. Alcoholic, syrupy-sweet nose with fruity & hoppy aromas, liqueurish, hints at young oak. Smells phenomenally alcoholic for only 6.2% ABV. Sour with a faint fruity sweetness in the background. Sour cherries (yet not the sour cherry version!) and other (sour) red fruit. Bit of lemon, and very old wine, some wood. Retronasal strawberries - unripe ones. Sharp acidburn, nearly dry-out effect, lipsmacking acidity. No alcoholeffect in the mouth, in contrast to the nose. Good, if a tad crude Oud Bruin. rzymol (119) - - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle, 33cl, 1 y.o. Pours intense tea with thin and short-lasting foam. Aroma is sour, very intense, biological, yeasty. Taste is amazing, very sour, a bit salty, with low bittering finish and dry aftertaste. Cannot feel roasted barley. Highly drinkable and enjoyable. Sjohnh (1012) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Clear, attractive red brown colour. No head to speak of. Light body and little carbonation, but the sourness gives an impression of a fuller body. Sour, sharp fruit, tea. Strong but well balanced sour ale.
