fejez (46) - - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle 25 cl. Dark ruby, with very little head. The sour nose is promising, but it disappears soon. Medium body, very drinkable. A bit astringent.

erickok (5829) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2017
Brown to red, glowy, nice looks. Light wine like aroma, touch woody, not dry though. Moderate taste, refined and classical but still interesting. For such a stunningly cheap beer this is a very nice surprise. Such an odd find... History in a bottle. (25cl bottle from Prik&Tik Leuven)

MrW (630) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2017
33cl at Bier Central Antwerp Aroma is minimal sour, red fruits, wine. Poured dark red, with a foamy Tan head, lacing. Taste has also red fruits but very diluted, a bit vanilla. Watery and super weak finish.

Icedwarf (1512) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
Roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is fris zuur en fruitig met iets van bramen en bessen.

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2016
75cl bottle (vintage?) kindly shared by Bierhandlung in the aftermath of Bier mit Stil 2: Saison. - Oldschool oud bruin sessioner keeping the brakes on most parameters of the style, going for watered down mulled wine to go with seafood: tannic red wine notes and light oak peices by red balsamics, surface lacto, some cherry and Lotus speculaas. Rougher edges in the lacto. A time capsule to early 90s Belgian beer & weekday food culture, in an accessible low profile beer. Porbably one of the better Strubbe beers.

biirusaikou (2678) - - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle at Lao Lao. Overripe red fruit and sweet caramel, grape and sugar, oscillates from sour to sweet on the palate. Fairly tasty stuff but a bit unbalanced and heavy, definitely a difficult style to nail.

kerenmk (4643) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexei and Raphaelas. Thanks Yoav. Murky brown with a tan ring. Baby puke, lactic, a little rotten but all in all faint aroma. Delicate funk and vinous in the mouth. Full body, delicate fizz, a little grape juice finish.

Ysok02 (1392) - Mons, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Une bire assez banale tant au nez quen bouche, lensemble manque de puissance et de complexit.

Wixie (549) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
Dark liquid with red shining. Small head. Heavy and fruity, interesting aroma. Medium body, no carbonisation. Taste is sour and sweet.
