DocJitsu (1827) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Pours a dark ruby with a quickly dissipating light tan head. Sour buttermilk and pickled corn on the nose. Flavors follow. A bit of fig. A peculiar heat on the back of the throat. Not alcohol, not capsicum, so what is it? Oak comes through more as I work through the beer. Very unique brew for a number of reasons. Id have this again.

Jolie robe brune avec des reflets rubis,une mousse beige peu persistante et une carbonatation intense.Le nez nous offre des armes vineux et aigres .la bouche nous amne rapidement sur laigreur de faon brutale!la douceur narrive quen fin de bouche,ce qui nous laisse sur cette note aigre-doux qui nest pas dsagrable. Une excellente bire,certes,trs originale et "piquante" mais ce nest pas le style que je prfre!14,5/20

Dguste dans un verre Kasteel. Temprature de dbut 8 9. Belle robe brun rouge avec une mousse de couleur caf au lait trs peu persistante, carbonatation moyenne. Nez vineux et surtout trs vinaigr mais vraiment agrable. Got trs suret voire franchement acide mais assez plaisant. Finale assez longue dans le mme registre avec en arrire plan une petite note de douceur. Trs surprenant mais plutt agrable pass le choc initial!!! 14,5/20

Bottle. Pours lovely deep reddish brown. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, apple and red wine. The balsamic taste is there but in a good way. Mildly tart with sweet and sour. A bit of a love/hate beer and Im going for love it.

Moravec (1) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 13, 2016 does not count
Almost black dark burgundy colour. Strong fruity-sour aromas. The taste is a unique blend of sour fruity elements, with more than just a hint of blackberries and red currents, and some malty sweetness. Very sophisticated taste, a beer full of secrets that you can discover new elements of by each sip. One of my personal favourites.

One of my favourites from Bierhandlung. Malty vinegar in nose. Nice sourish woody taste. Also some sweet malt notes, black currant and bread.
