prawlie (1567) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle into own long glass at De Krakele in Brugge. Red brown with short lived creamy head. Woody, slightly yeasty ale, light red fruitiness. Refreshing yet a litte dry in the aftertaste. Aroma is acidic, sour and vinious. Decent

jfb (6105) - GERMANY - MAR 7, 2012
(bottle) pours a darkest ruby-brown colour with a frothy light beige head. aroma of grain, red grapes, candy floss, melted butter and canned peaches, slightly composty. flavour is mostly the same, underattenuated, lots of sticky brown sugar and butter, with an inappropriate herbal-hoppy bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Small bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin beige head. Nice aroma with medium sweetness and vinegar. Flavor has some good cherry notes with lingering sourness.

Bottled from 124 rabbit club. Poured a dark brown with little head. Not very sour for a sour ale but I liked it.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
25cl bottle from Dranken Geers in Belgium - fantastic store by the way. The pour is very dark brown topped with a edgy off white head. The nose is not sour as ecspected but more malty sweet with notes of candid sugar topped with an odd metallic aroma. A very thin palate with a highly carbonated feeling that blures the taste. The taste is still sweet at most - not sour at all. It reminds me of a danish dark classic pilsner. Still I get some metallic notes and with a slightly bitter finish - again not sour as described above. Quite disappointing.

jaghana (5875) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle 25cl from Altonbrownd thanks a lot. A clear brown-red beer with low head. Nose is very low. Aroma is nice on fresh fruits and sweet like, notes of cherry and apricot, brown malt notes, caramel, candy sugar, slightly sour, very pleasant, oak notes peppery hops at the finish. Nice but a bit too sweet for me.

Mah, supermetallica e stradolciona, non ricordo chi sia lo sfortunato che ne ha preso un bicchiere. Forse Cinghio
