Vintage 2004, corked half bottle
Clean copper color, without head. Light, strange aroma: plastic, some malt, light mature apples. Quite round mouthfeel, with some malt flavor, traces of paint remover, an unexpected cereals crispiness, and a non invasive but sharp acidity. In the final the cereals leave a breadish touch; the acidity attack the back of the throat and is not very pleasant. Only in mathematics chaos and complexity go together. Difficult to catch…

Leighton (19802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting - London. Huge thanks to Ian for this oldie! Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. The nose is all vinegar. Lightly sweet, sharply acetic, with strong vinegar character, vague fruity notes. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Finishes with more sharp acetic bite. A bit harsh overall. This one is most likely over the hill.

rlgk (18837) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle, thanks to larsniclas. Reddish/orange/amber color, no head. Vinegar aroma, cork, woody, sourish, fruity, woody notes. Fklavor first brings vinegar and rather sour notes, then turns alittle moer fruity. Sour finish with some fruits and citrus.

Bottle split at Kenny 20K, big thanks to Harrisoni, 15/01/16. Clear golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is vinegar strokes, tarte fruit esters, burnt cherry tones, straw, spice, fruit balsams. Taste comprises cherry balsams, rising acidity, funk, wood must, grain, damp hay. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, pissy strokes in the close. Ok ... but hasn’t aged that gracefully ... a touch raw.

harrisoni (17654) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2008
Bottle that Duff bought in Waagstuk, Antwerp. Now I know that I will be going against the grain here and I do promise to lay down a bottle I have bought and will re-rate in a few years time, but at the moment, I just don’t get the hype about this beer. Clear orange amber colour with no head. Lambicky sour aroma. Bit of plastic. Actually no it’s petrol. OK in mouth, but the finish is too acidic for me. Granary bread soaked in red wine vinegar springs to mind in terms of flavours.

Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are fruits, yeast, vinegar and malt.

yngwie (16760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle, 37.5cl wine cork. Lovely sourish nose with a touch of barnyard, lemon and pale malt. Slightly phenolic. The phenol is evident in the flavor too, actually quite evident. There’s also lots of citric flavors, some barnyard and lemon. Medium, sourish, palate-cleansing mouthfeel. Long, sourish lemony finish. A beautiful beer that could replace white wine anytime.

Bright golden-amber. No head. Rich nose of wood, mirabelle plums, pears and a slight acetic note. Balanced and appetizing. Relatively low carbonation, just a hint of prickle. Rich lactic tang balanced by sticky malt. Quite fruity (plum, peach, pear) with significant wood and acidity to dry it out. The real story is in the mouthfeel, however. It’s near flat, with a slight oily accent, but is fully vibrant, carrying complex flavours across the palate with surprising simplicity. Lively fruits take on a somewhat vinous character. Very refined example - almost lacks the rustic charm I like in sours but is so perfectly structured I can pretty much overlook that.
