Benzai (14653) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle [from trade with Scopey] @ home. Lightly hazy pale yellow color, virtually no head. Aroma is lightly sourish and indeed red wine influences. Taste initially is lightly sour, again lightly some red wine influences, then more sourness, a slight hint of sour yellow fruits. Suitable body and carbonation. Quite pleasant.

thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle from Kernel and about 8 months old. Pours pale straw with minimal head. nose is mild fall fruit apples peaches and plums sweet sour combo. Taste is more intense but similar. LIke near the skin of a plum where it is most sour, Lactic (yogurt) sour, and some light lemon maybe but not as citrus as others can be. LIght on the palate but very smooth and so easy to drink, I really like the mild carbonation and this is much better than the regular Kernel Sour in my opinion

gnoff (9696) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
33 cl bottle thanks to Ingo! On April 18, 2014. BB 08.02.14.
Clear pale straw yellow color, no head. Vinous, berry, yeast scent, also wood and hints of vanilla, acidic. Acidic to sour, tart, then massive and massive wheat dough that goes and ruins the day for me, one of my hate objects to feel. Later on could also feel wood and vanilla in the taste as well. Wheat dough (urk) aftertaste that really bothers me, and it lingers too. Thin a bit fizzy mouthfeel, no bitterness.

CloakedDagger (2151) - - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Back label reads: "Aged in Burgundy Pinot Noir barrels for 4 months". Pours a very pale yellow with no head at all - looks like a glass of light white wine actually. Lovely woody aroma, tons of oak up there. Light body, low in carbonation, tart and citric but the lovely wood accents dominate before the base beer comes through again in the finish with lots of salt, yeast and minerals. But I really could sniff this all night.... 040214
