omhper (24627) - Tyres, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2011
Bottled at chrisos. Cloudy pale purple. Intensely sour black currant aroma. Exceptionally acetic with a blast of plastic and minerals. Aggressively medicinal and rubbery, super sour. Interesting, but certainly not good.

oh6gdx (26414) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2011
Bottled. Red colour, small pink head. Aroma is blueberries, cherries, raspberries and quite much tart notes. Flavour is vinegar, burning and raspberries, Once the yeast it is in, it loses some of the sharpness, but is still quite hardcore.

thirdeye11 (6151) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2011
(375ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye - Rating #3,200!) cloudy purple pour with just a few bubbles. Nose of tart cherries, florals, other fruit and berries here too. A bit funky as well, smells awesome. Taste is very salty, a bit bland, berries, quite tart and acidic. Finish is very lactic/acidic. Earthy stems and almost like a juniper bush as it finishes. Unique sour!

Underbar fruktighet, hrlig syrlighet. Ganska tjock munknsla och en mycket trevlig eftersmak.

LCBS 2010. Reddish pour. Light head. Sour as balls aroma. Vinegar, grapes, raspberries, light cherry notes. Favor is sour, acidic. Fruity but overly sour. I liked it. I got some berry notes in the flavor, maybe rasberry or cherry.
