Dull chestnut colour. Fun nose mixing dark fruits. Quite funky. Very tart. Kind of acetic and woody. So dark fruitiness. Interesting. bierkoning (13201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle from Hoppymeal, thanks! Dark brown color. Vinegar, caramel and cherry notes in teh aroma. Sour, caramelly, slightly lactic flavor with cherry and raspberry sweets and cinnamon. Could have been a Flemish sour. j12601 (10871) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a hazy brown with a thin white head. Crisp light funk and a clean sourness. Tart apple notes. AirForceHops (7129) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2014
22 oz. bottle purchased at the source. Let me say this is not a style I really care for at all but I always try to revisit a style after some time. Dirty brown with ruby highlights. Nose is harsh sour berries. Tart berries, red wine vinegar, balsamic notes, building into a lactic acid finish. thornecb (5874) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2013
I really don’t understand why people drink this style. Harsh and funky. I had a mild case of heartburn after drinking 12 oz. of this, hard for me to enjoy this type of brew.
Pours ruby-tinged mahogany into a tulip. No head. Mild cherry aromas. Soft with tart pit fruit upfront turning to marshmallow in the medium length finish.

Bottle at Peter’s NY gathering - cloudy copper - no head - aroma of cherry skins and yogurt cultures - earthy throughout, with some light acidic notes, natural fruit tartness, more notes of yogurt - finishes with some red wine vinegar flavors - decent.

Hand bottle. Pours a brown body with an off white head. Hints of acetic acid and Flanders woody acidic sourness with a light balsamic notes. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bomber at PPRBSG09. Pours a ruby brown with a thin diminishing head. Aroma is a bit funky but in a bad way- wet dog, earthy, leather, mildewy, cherry pits. Flavor has more black cherry and cyanide character, pitty woody, herbal and earthy with more weird wet dog character, slight ox soy, mint, and a light acidic finish.

Bottle at PPRBSG09. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of sour yogurt. Flavor is very yogurty and lactic. No malt backbone at all. I didn’t like this one much...

Bomber at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering shared by MicroGrog, thanks Adam. Pours a dead looking ruby brown. Aroma is musty, musky, and dirty and lightly burnt malts. Flavor is like a sour cola with acetic qualities. Some chocolate sour cola flavors. Cool stuff, has a lightly tingling mouthfeel.
