bigtaster (921) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2017
From a bomber into snifter. Light brown, almost no head, clear. Nose is mild with a hint of funk, some caramel malt. Body is smooth, very little carbonation. I think the bottle was past prime but interesting none the less.

neongolden (1332) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2017
(375ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours a lightly hazed copper with a few stray white bubbles. Aroma is rather acidic and woody with moderate funk overall, notes of tart grapes and berries, lactic citrus, light acetic notes, oak, leather, soft caramel, orchard floor fruity funk, light spice? Flavour is tart but not heavily sour, grapes, light notes of cherry and tart cranberry, a touch of citrus, some slightly sweet caramel malt notes, increasing dryness from the oak, leather, a bit of earth, maybe some bittering hops, persistent tart grape, a little soap/solvent thing on the back end which is distracting. Lightly spicy Brett. Very dry, slightly bitter and tannic aftertaste Light to medium bodied with almost no carb. As the label says, feels like a Flanders red as much as a Biere de Garde, definitely on the sour side for the latter. Nice stuff despite the funny note towards the finish.

matbli (304) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle, pours cloudy tea color with white head that reduces to lacing after some minutes. A lot of small yeast particles are swimming inside. Aroma of cherries, plums, yoghurt, red wine and a hint of oak wood. Taste is very balanced with medium sourness some light sweetness and grapefruity bitterness in the finish. I wish I would have a bottle more to try how the growing sourness affects the impressions. Nice one.
