biir (1195) - Berlin, - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle at Herman - Dark red color with small off-white head. Taste is heavy on balsamico vinegar, dark wood, port wine, apples. Strongly acidic. Liked it but is maybe a bit too much vinegar, actually.

shared a 750 of this with a dear friend. Wow super surprising at how much like a light wine this one is. Definitely some tart berry in its finish. Taste beer would drink again

Cybion (180) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle, 330ml. Pours clear VERY dark red with minimal soapy off-white head. Small amount of large carb bubbles visible. No lacing. Aroma is very vinous and sour, with strong notes of cherry, rich, spicy fruitcake, muscavado sugar, brandy, liquorice balsamic vinegar in the back. Somewhat musty, woody, also something lactic; strong cheese maybe, as an undercurrent. Acetone also present. Very mildly sweet sometimes. Taste is much sweeter and fruitier with some blackcurrent and maybe even raspberry coming through with the sour cherry and vinous stuff at the forefront. This is followed up by a dry, mild, lactic sourness with some lingering light, sticky cereal malt. Balsamic vinegar is a constant presence. Comes across as quite syrupy in flavour but the body is light and the texture is smooth, with some moderate carbonation lending more weight to the sour attack. Like it but Id prefer if it were little bit less syrupy and vinegar-y.

Juggernaut84 (266) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 Optik: tiefes Rot und feiner Schaum, nichts zu beanstanden und sehr appetitlicher Anblick. Nase: reife Sure und trockene Frchte, wenn man schwenkt kommt eine stark tzende Klebstoffnote die in Apfelessig endet. Fr mich ein zu krasses Off-Flavor auch fr Sauer. Mund: samtig weiches Mundgefhl adstringierende Balsamico-Sure die zusammen mit der leichten Carbonisation schn prickelt. Der Abgang ist trocken und anhaltend. wre die Nase nicht so mies wrde ich es mgen.

CyborgX (96) - THAILAND - FEB 16, 2017
Tap - aroma is sour and full bodied. Taste follows the aroma but with some sweet tones, giving a very intense attack on the senses as sweet and sour combintion frequently do. I love this stuff in bottles, on tap its even better! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

butelka 750ml. nikły aromat, lecz przyjemny. pięknie się prezentuje, piana utrzymuje się, ładnie zdobi szkło. w smaku świetny balans pomiędzy kwaśnością a słodkością. suszone czerwone owoce, pełne w smaku. Świetne.

Bottle. Reddish-brown ale. Vinous, rich, fruity, sweet & sour. Sweet dark cherries balanced by slightly wine-vinegary sourness. Very nice! (2008)

hrabren (1143) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 11, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Vrutak, Zagreb. Shared with Vinja 666 and Nikola. Dark brown, coke color, small off-white head. Wine, cherry-brandy, basement aromas, alcohol, glue. Sour and gluey dryness. Astringent, very dry, medium body, lingering dry finish. Very sour, a beer for true sour lovers. Very nice and interesting.
