gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Bottle @ S&B - pours bright and clear dark yellow, no head. The nose is just incredible as it is a perfect mix of the fruitiness of peach with a nutty impression of almond (marzipan) and a full buttery character. Light, fresh body with low carbonation. Taste of lemon peel. The complex nose makes it an incredible beer. ---- Re-rated after a tasting at Jeffo’s place. Intense peach notes in the nose remain, but the body is less wonderful. Lowered with 0.3.

Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
From Bottle at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours light orange, with a thin white head. The nose is floral, golden syrup, some tartness, raisin, tangy marmalade, nectarine, almond, vanilla, marzipan and toasted coconut. The taste is sour lemon, white grape, Granny Smith apple, touch of vinegar, floral, hay, some alcohol warmth, vanilla and almond, with a dry, very tart finish. Medium body and lowish carbonation. Delicious and pretty easy to drink, but perhaps lacks a bit of the complexity that some of the great lambics have. Still it’s a great beer.

tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2012
S&B 2012. Pours hazy golden with small rim of off white bubbles. Aroma is dry sour acidy stable cellar wet blanket. Flavor is very nice; not too tart lingering sourness with touch of fruits barrel harshness and some bitterness at the back. Finishes sour tart and bitter.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 16, 2012
On tap at Sour and Bitter: Hazy yellow with a dense white head. Classic aroma, Brett, barnyard, vinegar, some rubber. Extremly sour but with a fat malty base distinguising it from belgian Sours. Nice

JulienHuxley (5809) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2012
100 ml pour out of a bottle at Sour and Bitter 2012. Clear gold pour, completely flat, no head. Pretty cidery aroma, lots of funk, very acidic aroma, a bit of pear. Very sour, the sourness almost gives an impression of carbonation. Super dry palate, very light carbonation (almost flat). A light fruity taste subsists, but this beer has almost completely dried out. I have a feeling it’s getting a little old. Still very good, but not a super complex multi layered sour anymore.

_angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012
Sample @ the Sour & Bitter event in Copenhagen. Pours very hazy golden, almost milky golden, with a very small white head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace. Smell is slightly sweet and sour with ripe grapes, raisins, lemon juice, plums, hay, horse blanket and funk. Taste is sour with green grapes, grape zest, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, hay, plums, horse blanket, leather and sweat. Mouthfeel is tart, slightly mouthpuckering, dry and medium bodied. Finish is sour with hay, plums, grapes and lemon zest. Very nice!

Bottle pour at the Sour&Bitter event in Copenhagen. Pours an unclear orange with a white head. Smells pleasantly funky, with horse blanket, cream... my vocabulary is insufficient. Tastes sour, mildly rubbery, sweet, bitter, salty. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy texture. Amazing beer.
