jinroh (1524) - ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2016
Slightly reddish, not much foam, just a thin film. Aroma is quite intense sour, berries still intact, bit of barnyard and funk but also sharp vinegar which I like. Taste has berries and also some wooden oak that is blending nicely. Flavours are clean and somewhat distinct. Bitterness is also there, blended with sour. Just great.

BYO @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Nice dry layered sour. Subtle, elegant. Aging works well, for a change...

Definitely is what it states. High sour vinegar scent with some tart bitters. Orange red color with a touch of hazy. Taste is harsh sour. Tart cherries and woodsy/mossy. The cherries are like pink/yellow ones that aren’t ripe. Palate makes your mouth pucker for sure. Tap

From the corked, caged bottle with a bottling date of 011615. Received in trade from jcwattsrugger. Thanks much jc. I have always wanted to try this one. It is a nice looking light amber-orange pour with a modest head. The aroma brings out wine, cherries, grapes, wild yeast and a touch of spice. Definitely has sour, wild ale all over the nose with that fruity addition. Medium and smooth body. The taste has a nice tart and sour cherry flavor but it does not make me pucker-up like so many sours can. Also an under current of toasted biscuit and Belgian spice with a dry finish.A hint of pepper. Just superb.

Amber pour with hint of a head. Sour fruit aroma. Flavor is a touch of sweetness with just a perfect match of sourness.

December 4, 2015. Bottle at home, bottled april 11, 2013.
Clear reddish golden with a small frothy white head, quickly dissipating leaving a small ring around the edge. Aroma is quite vinous and fruity with tart cherries, apples, grapes, black currants, hints of oak, butter and lacto. Taste is dry tart and light sweet. Finish is dry, tart, fruity with cherries, apples, slightly bitter dry grape skins and some dry oak notessome sweet malty and buttery notes. Medium bodied, dry, soft to average carbonation.
Great sour, was a bit better fresh though.
