motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 5, 2012
’82 bottle at rbesg 08 grand tasting in sunny pilsen. a very murky light brown with no dsernible head; predictably woody aroma with traces of lacquer and tomato vine; tasted of brown sugar and bloody nose; plasant nonetheless

UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 22/IV/2012 - 25cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Bouvier’s place - BB: 14/IX/13 (2012-398)

Clear dark brown beer, small aery light beige head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit sour, yoghurt, raspberries, bit sweet, raspberry jam. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: bit sweet, sour tangy touch, pretty fruity, lemon juice, bitter, green banana. Aftertaste: sweet sugary touch, raspberries, bitter ending, bit metallic.

(bottle) pours a clear dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of citrus fruits, custard, caramel and strawberries, slightly earthy with a hint of lactic acid. flavour is mostly the same, quite fruity, with hints of barnyard, milk chocolate, cookie dough, grain and a minerally finish. light-bodied with average carbonation. quite good for sixty cents a bottle.

sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
(Bottled, BBE 12/2011) Very nice blood-red color with a smallish, but firm and lasting, tanned head. Tart, vinegary aroma with some caramely-roasted maltiness. Flavor is mildly roasty, mildly vinegary, only slightly sugary-sweet. Almost medium body, foamy CO2. Normally I’m not such a big fan of Oud Bruins, but this is quite nicely balanced (sweetness & tartness) and refreshing. 4264

Bottle. Pours prune almost black. Tan head. Nose of muted cider vinegar and old socks. Taste is watered down vinegar. Soda like carbonation.

DruncanVeasey (8454) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Cheesy sock, iron filings, red wine aroma....turning to sticky Chinese sauce, cinnamon, chip shop batter. Unique. Pours ruby with audible fizz, forming a stable beige collar. More of that deep fried, sticky Chinese flavour; syrupy oak with a tingle of cinnamon-dusted plain yoghurt, and rust, and cereal boxes. Sugared on the lips like a sticky plum sauce. I like a beer that challenges my descriptors, and this is doing just that. Fair play.

Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - SEP 22, 2010
Sour-sweet smell, wood, fruits, milk, liquor. Probably not my beer... Looks are ok brown with a medium had, but it colapses to soon. Just a small head stays. Should get 2.5... Taste is sour fruits, some wood. I know sour ale is not my stuff, but it’s better drinkeable then expected. The sourness is not to overwhelming. In fact, besides it’s a bit to much mouthfeel like a soda and it’s even pretty sweet, it’s drinkeable. But this type of beer won’t be my favorite to soon.

douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2010
25 cl bottle. Pours a dark red-brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is sour vinegar, caramel malts. A slightly sour flavor with lots of sweet sugary caramel brown malts. OK.

harrisoni (19549) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle at ChrisO "I’m Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. Stale sweet and rubbish.

madmitch76 (26434) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
31st July 2010. ChrisO’s ’Raise The Roof’ tasting.
Hazy brown beer. Only lighlty sour. Offset by some good generic fruit. Finishes crisp and dry.
