davidpl (435) - Santiago, - APR 11, 2009
Tasted in Brugges-2008. Appearance: amber color with pink notes, beautiful color. Not head. Aroma: complex sweet fruity smells. Mainly vinous and citric; notes of wood, green grapes, rose’s petal and balsamic vinegar. Flavor: ephemeral sweet start; dominated for complex and sour flavors. Fruitiness simiar to citric strawberries, green grapes and pomegranate. Spicy sourness with notes of vineger, gherkin, pickles and mustard. Vinous reminiscences as rosé, champagne and chardonay. Lightly Woody taste. Final with light touches of bicarbonate. Palate: medium body, semi-oily ad rough texture. Low carbonation. Remark: refined, complex and refreshing beer; own character, multidimentional sourness and a challenge for the palate. Very nice.

Zlotta (3056) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle, 2004 vintage. Clear, golden red, no head. Sweetish, sourish-fruity aroma of cherries, raspberries, vinegar, oak and bitter almond. Slightly sweetish, moderately sour, quite fruity taste of caramel, cherries, oak, vinegar, bitter almond and hints of red grapes, followed by a medium long, rather tart, woody-dry finish. Almost medium-bodied, rather astringent and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, flat. Quite tasty, held up quite well, but shouldn’t be aged any longer.

Süß säuerlicher Geruch. Intensiv säuerlicher Start mit Noten leichten Noten von Honig. Weiche milde Getreidenoten, die Säure bleibt hintergründig aber scharf, spritzig, rund aber unsüffig. Vollmundig, langer Nachhall. Sehr gut. 10/9/12/10/12/11

Theydon_Bois (18935) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
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.

Leighton (20811) - 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.

mR_fr0g (11623) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle shared at the Kenny 20K mega monster tasting. 15/01/2016. Many thanks to Ian for this one. Clear dull orange golden coloured pour with a halo of small white head. Aroma is sour funk, citrus, , Flavour is composed of light funk, tangy, stale, onion, pithy lemon. Palate is sweet and tangy, lowish carbonation. A bit stale and flabby. Wasn’t a huge fan of this.
