Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours a pretty much clear light gold with a foamy white head and mild lacing. Nose shows a dusty, funky hop profile, but not in a bad way. Some acetic, wood, and earthy notes. Taste adds a fruity tart thing with hints of cherry skins, lemons, and leather. I kind of dig this.
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2017 Średnie w zapachu octowo - winne. Smakuje lepiej bardziej pod wytrawne wino, trochę octowe, skóra w domyśle. Trochę puste. rauchbier (3902) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle, from Lidl. Gold, fluffy and lasting white head, good insistent condition. Pleasantly citric tart nose with a background wild funkiness, hints of blood and gunpowder and some woodiness. Quite soft in the mouth with an initial malty sweetness that becomes slightly acidic and fruity with a background chalky dry note and a much more muted bretty funkiness. Finish is lightly tangy and slightly sour with some dry lemon notes and a lingering puckering dryness. evannell (1195) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Dzikusy, trochę beczki. Kwaśne, goryczka z alkoholu. Całkiem spoko. Wytrawne. tomer (3582) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 13, 2017
Draught at Beers 2017, small creamy head, clear quite deep yellow color, aroma of sweat, sour bread, vanila and spice, flavor of sour fruit, wood, yeastiness and mustard, mellow empathic medium sourness, very light sweetness. Nicely balanced. Very nice and highly enjoyable. MartyW (280) - DENMARK - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle 1 year 10 months before BBD. Clear pale yellow with a huge lasting white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of oak, vinegar, apple cider. Quite a crisp sourness. Flavour of balsamic vinegar, oak, green apples, lemon, grapefruit. Disappointing finish that is lacking a punch similar to the better beer in this style. Much better options out there.

0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is golden and clear. Aroma has balsamic vinegar. Taste more than sour - it is like balsamic vinegar. Acid, but also very complex. Some wood and tannins, perhaps? Looks like pilsener, but tastes like the usually more dark Flanders sour ales. Great. tmrmwel (2156) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2017

Bottle, five months before bbd. Pours slightly hazy golden, with a big creamy head. Aroma is acetic, with wine vinegar, wooden barrels and tannins, as well tart fruity notes with rhubarb and berries. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is acetic, with wine vinegar, bretty wood and and tart fruity notes of rhubarb. Lingering tart finish. Refreshing, balanced and quaffable.
Fresh sweet sour, wild yeast, reminds me a bit of Geuze / cider. Aroma of apple, peach, grapefruit, a bit alcoholic. Light body; slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Easy drinkable and enjoyable beer.
