dorain (177) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2017
Getrunken aus der Flasche 2013-12. Oh, eher wie ein Sour Red! Der Einsatz von Kakao, Orangen und Zimt haben die sauren Fruchtnoten im Zaum gehalten. Tolles Bier!

3.5
gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2017
Sample at MBCC 2017. Amber with a small head. Sour with fruit, funk, citrus and malt. The body was medium and the finish with notes of alcohol.

Biroholik (1345) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle to glass @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration 2017
Ciemno bursztynowy kolor z cieniutką białą pianą. W aromacie lekkie cytrusy, przyprawy, czerwone owoce. Smak jest kwaśny. Dominują owocowe nuty: pomarańcze, morele, lekka śliwka. Potem odrobina drożdżowych klimatów i przyprawy. Pijelne, chwilami dzikie, bardzo ciekawy profil. Nie wiadomo czy to Brown Ale, Sour Ale, czy Belgian Strong Ale?

4.3
colui72 (989) - HONG KONG - MAY 14, 2017
Hazy amber, medium cream head, some lacing. Aroma is slightly sour, spices, plums. Very rich taste, sour fruits, plums, cocoa nibs, spices, caramel malts. Medium sour, low bitterness, very crisp and refreshing for a Belgian style, without too much candi sugar after taste (which is what puts me off in Belgian ales), medium body, lively, astringent finish. Great ale!

3.3
bwa5879 (940) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2017
Cloudy medium chestnut pour with thin white head and decent lacing. Straightforward sour Berry aroma with some honey. Soft carbonation , mouthfeel is velvety, finishes quite clean but a bit astringent. Flavor has pert Berry sour with weathered wood, hint of cherry. Good sour, a bit bitter or astringent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Hop Cat. Pours opaque brown, little head. Plum esters in the nose. Taste is sour and fruity (plum, raisin), finishes with a little bit of plum skin flavor. Really drinkable and unique wild ale - Another great one by Jolly Pumpkin!
