Keg at BD Shoreditch. Beetroot red/purple with little white head. Aroma is fullsharp funk and musty red berries. Taste is funky up front with red berries followed by a strong earthiness. Puckeringly tart. Nice

Tap at BrewDog Birmingham. I love spontaneity. Dark appearance, especially sitting outside in the dark, red and a delicious sour kick. Dave loved it, kept asking for a sip, Simon said it tasted like vinegar. Amateur. See, you asked for a description and now you get three for the price of one. Now that my friends is cracking value.

Raisins et cerises dans un crescendo de surette remu dans un corps intressant. Le mlange des sucres fruits et de la finale acidule donne limpression doursons sures en jujubes.

lumos3 (9) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2013 does not count
Bottiglia del 2011, Color barbabietola impenetrabile, quasi torbida, fragole e lamponi al naso, acidit ben bilanciata , schiuma assente, carbonazione moderata, presenti fastidiosi sedimenti sul fondo. A mio parere il taglio di Barbera un po troppo presente,ma credo sia voluto. In linea su massima una buona sour Ale ma non incontra il mio palato al 100%

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2013
2011 Bottling.
Appearance: The body is a murky brown with a reddish tinge, there is almost no head, just a hint of carbonation.
Aroma: The aroma is mild with sweet cherries and raspberries balancing out a slightly tart and vinegar presence: Taste: The flavor is very mild and sweet upfront with blueberries and grapes that slides into a dry leather funk that finishes mildly sour with a touch of vinegar.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with just a touch of vinegar.
Overall: This is a very interesting beer and I very much enjoy it despite the ratings. The appearance is awful and the aroma is weak, but this is an enjoyable and complex beer that is worth trying.

DONT BE FOOLED. THIS IS A GLORIFIED SPARKLING WINE/WINE COOLER. YUCK. No head. Way too much carbonation. Its a crime to call this a beer.
