MetalNHopHead (1858) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Jolly Pumpkin know what the fuck they’re doing when it comes to dealing with funk. Biere de Mars pours red-brown and maintains a decent head considering it’s such an acidic beer. Dusty basement, leather, tobacco, and musty fruit aromas. The taste is equally wild and weird. Caramel, sour apple, balsamic vinegar, and subtle citrus. Sound weird? It is. Yet it totally works. Not as punchy as some Sours, but there’s still a fair amount of vinegar-like acetic sharpness. Reminded me a lot of La Roja, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

SlackerMads (3350) - DENMARK - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown with a medium sized off white head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Strong juicy nose with lemon and minerals. Flavour has dark wood, tobacco, lemon, minerals and dark berries. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light/medium sour. Long finish with minerals and dark wood. Not overdone, just crisp and flavourful.

375ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Pleasantish sourish aroma, some sweetish malts, Taste similar, woody sourish aspects. Yucky soapy taste. Not what I expect from JP at all. Way too much soap to enjoy this.

Marduk (7504) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2016
375ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear dark amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Acidic, lemon, fruity, balsamico in aroma. Acidic, sharp, fruity, lemon juice and balsamico in taste. Balsamico in aftertaste. There is level of enjoyment, but it is too sharp for me. Drinkable, but naah.

ciocanelu (2235) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 22, 2016
Hazy amber color with off-white head that fizzes away completely. Aroma is sweet and tart with a slight acetic note, some tart fruits and a bit of sugar. Taste starts tart and yeasty with some sugar in the background, light vinegar and yeast notes. Medium body with low carbonation, quite dry mouthfeel. Quite interesting, more in the direction of a flanders red than a biere de garde.

jbruner (4641) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Pours a murky reddish brown from the bottle with bubbly off-white head. Aroma of funky yeast, dark fruit, lactic acidity, and musty earth. Taste is more of the lactic and the fruit with a nice funky, dry finish. Solid American sour red.
