MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Aroma: heavy corn mash, wheat-bread crust, slight dish rag, I love the aroma; Appearance: slightly transparent brown, like most nut brown ales I’ve seen, heavy bubble action upon pour that, if you leave it alone, will result in a rootbeer float like head; Taste: initial impression is a good sour that you expect, but, after the initial impression, you start to kind of taste a sort of subtle apple cidery flavour, this is my 2nd bottle of this brew, and, maybe I’m nuts, but this one tastes more watered down than the first one, I wonder how much variability there is bottle to bottle in this brew, anyone know?; Palate: a slight mouth watering sour, you can pull out the hops only in the aftertaste, in my opinion; Overall: this is my last bottle of this brew, I would have liked to have tried a couple more because I’m confused in that I liked the 1st bottle a lot more than the second, nonetheless, I’m becoming a big fan of sour ales, and for that reason, I am well pleased and will give this beer a good rating

Bottiglia da 33cl. Ottimo aspetto color tonaca di frate con riflessi rubini di schiuma fine color nocciola. Aroma: note acidule e resinoso accompagnate da sentori di frutti di bosco. Al palato inizio acidulo con note resinose e legnose, corpo molto leggero e finale fruttato ribes rosso e frutti di bosco acerbi.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2017 Très belle robe rubis profond avec des reflets de grenat et une très belle mousse dense ivoire à bulles fines qui montent dans un verre ballon. Nez de Sour/Brune, mais pas que ! Houblons très fins avec une pointe d’agrumes et de coriandre, beaux malts caramel, petites notes de balsamique et de bois de fût, notes de pomme, de poire, de raisin, de pruneau, de banane, d’ananas, de miel, de cassonade, de datte, de zest d’orange, de gingembre, de poivre et de girofle. Riche et complexe avec une belle fraicheur. Bouche de très grande Sour Beer, à la manière d’une Rodenbach Grand Cru mais avec un poil moins ce côté balsamique même si l’attaque est franche. Bonne carbonatation, alcool sobre et au niveau, amertume très légère, levures douces qui s’expriment sur la longueur et accompagnent bien les notes boisées. Deuxième gorgée sur les fruits, en particulier des notes de fruits rouges (framboise en tête) et des traces de fruits jaunes (mirabelle, abricot). La troisième va faire parler les végétaux, le bois, la résine qui colle bien au palet. Le corps est moyen, la texture relativement douce et bien structurée. Un bel équilibre maintient l’ensemble harmonieusement. Le final est sur des arômes de prune et de fruits justes mûrs, ainsi que des sucres résiduels soyeux. Une des meilleures Sours que j’ai boire jusqu’à maintenant ! Un véritable modèle du genre... Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

Zapach mało intensywny, słód, owoce, czerwone wino, chleb, karmel. Kolor brązowy, klarowne. Piana beżowa, obfita, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, średnio trwała, zdobi szkło. W smaku umiarkowana słodycz, niska pełnia, słód, chleb, czerwone owoce, karmel, zioła. Goryczka niska, wysycenie wysokie.

Defreni (3227) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2017
Flaske: Overraskende er denne øl bedre end sin kirsebær storebror. Brun let klar øl med et stort skumhoved. Duft aflet eddike og maltsødme. Smagen er igen maltsødme men meden god del syre til at balancere den ud. De lavere alkoholprocenter gør at sødmen ikke tager overhånd. Fin øl.

Aromat delikatny, przede wszystkim winny i lekko owocowy, po zamieszaniu wychodzą siki. W smaku kwaśne, ale przy tym strasznie puste. NIe ma żadnej kontrującej słodyczy, owocowości, nic. W miarę pijalny

Dark brown red color with a short white tan head. Sour redwine aroma. Taste of malt, vinegar and fruit.

jjsint (3110) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Bottle at Lidl. Mid-brown, translucent with a bit of off-white head. Cedar, bitter chocolate and malt vinegar in the aroma. Taste is mostly sweet, and there’s enough sourness to give it depth. Medium to long finish with black raspberry, sultana, and notes of horehound in the aftertaste. An easy bruin but none the less enjoyable for it.
