lusikka (7812) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2017
330 ml bottle. 2009 version. Pours a dark brown colour without a head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, red berries, some graininess and raisins. Flavour of red berries, vinegar, syrupy sweetness, vanilla and wood. Medium bodied. Dry and acidic finish. Aardmonnik is better.

laiti (8304) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2017
33 cl bottle @olio, bottled 18.02.2016
AARDNON 2009 on the rather simplistic label. Lot N˚BA00018022009
Aroma has vinegar, chlorine and moldy cellar. Also mild syrupy tones. Flavour is somewhat acidic with moldy cellar, balsamico, vinegar and grapefruity tones. The mold unfortunately ruins the show here. Quite a disappointment.

tiong (7129) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2017
330ml bottle from Beergium (as Aardnon 2009 Cask Strength Blend in Barrel Limited Edition Medium Carbonation - Barrel 7 Years, bottled 18/02/2016). Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma of plums, wood, raisins, oak, vanilla and earthiness. Taste is sourish, smooth and woody with loads of plums, raisins, vanilla, earthiness, tart cherries and farmyard. Finish is stingy, funky, sour and tartish with some plums, raisins, ripe fruits, cherries, oak, wood, toffee and earthiness. Complex, quite difficult beer.

Kiezmar (565) - Krakw, POLAND - APR 28, 2017
Bottle. Aroma is sweet. Caramel, vanilla, almonds, figs, dark fruits. Also some honey. Taste is a big suprisy. Aroma suggested that beer will be sweet. But no, beer is slightly sour. There are cherries, red fruits, a little bit tart. After that there is some dark notes like cocoa. Beer is rich in taste and very, very complex.

Biroholik (1295) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 27, 2017
Aardnon jest blendem 30% Aardmonnik i 70% Pannepot Reserva (leżakowane w dębowych beczkach Chteau Margaux). Piwo leżakowało 7 lat w beczkach.

Data butelkowania: 18.02.2016
Data ważności: 27.02.2021
Kolor: Ciemnobrązowe, nieprzejrzyste. Początkowo wydaje się czarne.
Piana: Jak na ten styl piana wydaje się obłędna. Ma ciemno kremowy kolor, zbitą i zwartą konsystencję. Sprawia wrażenie jednej, jednolitej masy. Opada w dł powolutku. Pozostawia szereg wstęg na ściankach Sniftera.
Zapach: Aromat jest po prostu kosmiczny. Pierwsze przesłanki są kompletnie zaskakujące. Piwo jest wpisane w styl Sour Ale, a pachnie intensywną wanilia, karmelem, toffi. Pod spodem odrobina miodu. Daleko w tle cierpkie, owocowe nuty. Coś jakby rabarbar posypywany cukrem. Dla mnie bomba!
Smak: W smaku na maksa odjechane. Nie wiem czy jestem w stanie wyobrazić sobie jakiekolwiek piwo w podobnym stylu. Jest to mieszanka wielu stylw i światw. Piwo na pierwszy rzut oka wydaje się słodkie, karmelowe z elementami ciemnych i czerwonych owocw (rabarbar, śliwka, wiśnie). Po prostu mix doskonały. Po chwili staje się intensywnie kwaśne, owocowe z dominantami w postaci cierpkich owocw (czerwone i ciemne winogrona). Piwo ma gęstą teksturę, umiarkowane wysycenie. Odczucie w ustach jest pełne. Piwo rozpływa się dosłownie na podniebieniu. Niesamowite doznanie!
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Teraz już wiem dlaczego mała butelka tego piwa kosztuje ponad 60 zł., a na rynku wtrnym ok. 100 ;) Piwo jest po prostu odjechane w kosmos. Dawno już nie piłem takiego ewenementu. Trunek w aromacie nie daje żadnych przesłanek, że może to być kwaśne piwo. Wprost przeciwnie jest mega słodkie, owocowe, karmelowe, a potem waniliowe. Dopiero w smaku pokazuje swoje kwaśne oblicze, przełamane wyraźną słodyczą. Kompleksowe, doskonale beczkowa, nietuzinkowe piwo.

skortila (5727) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2017
Bottled. 15cl sample. Thanks Caesar for sharing. The aroma has red fruit, bit tartness. Hazy, red-brown coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is light-moderate sour, has red fruit, vinegar and tartness. Medium bodied beer. Bit boring.

Scopey (14215) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017
Bottle shared by Matteo & Wingmane at Leightons 20K. It pours hazy dark red - brown with a small tan head. The aroma is rich, juicy, tangy, jammy fruits, victoria sponge, vanilla, cranberry, redcurrant and Dr Pepper. The taste is rich, bitter - sweet, tangy, sweet - sour, sugary, rich red fruits, vanilla, wood, vinous, victoria sponge cake and balsamic vinegar with a juicy and tangy finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Juicy, tangy and rather fruity. Tasty stuff.

Maarten1993 (1166) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2017
Drank 28-3 @Majid the night before going to Struise (2009 vintage). Very contained sour, with soft carbonation and mild sweetness. Intensely complex. Very good.

_angst_ (4802) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Linus. Cask strength 2009 version. Murky deep reddish brown pour with a thin beige head. Soft malts, caramel, lemon & dark dried fruits. Vanilla, oatmeal & light balsamic. Sour, tiny bitter & malty taste. Round & tart mouthfeel. Pleasant oxidation but falls a bit short in the taste where the round aromatics of the nose doesnt come through.

basjansen14 (304) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Aroma: zuurtje, donker fruit, hout en alcohol. Smaak: kersen, donker fruit, zuurtje, azijn, hout en wat gist. Heerlijk!
