lebermilz (290) - GERMANY - JAN 15, 2015
Mein erstes saures Bier. Sehr komplex, erfrischend, Noten von spontaner Gärung. Beim ersten Mal aus der 0,75er Flasche getrunken, dann später nochmal aus der kleinen Flasche. Beim zweiten Mal waren die Flüchtigen Säuren recht üppig, auf Deutsch: die Essignote war schon ziemlich heftig. Kein Bier für ein erstes Date.

Cerveza de color rojo rubí con una cabeza de color beige. Aroma ácido y fuerte como el aroma fermentado de una Gueuze. Sabor suave y exquisito al principio, termina con un regusto ácido, muy complejo, que buena es esta cerveza.

Pours a reddish brown. Aromas of funky cherries. Taste is sour, funk-yeast, raisins and cherries. Mildly tart and a little oak. Great beer!

cinek (287) - POLAND - NOV 26, 2016
tap/strefa piwa. miedziane z białą, drobnopęcherzykową pianą, która szybko redukuje się do zera. w aromacie woda po ogórkach kiszonych, przejrzałe winogrona, po ogrzaniu zmywacz do paznokci. w smaku początkowo kwaśne, na finiszu wyraźnie słodkie. niestety w posmaku również aceton. trudno się pije nawet 0,3ml

theSlipperyPen (282) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
Pours a reddened mahogany with a loose off white head which lows quickly, yet leaves a near permanent lacing. Nose is firstly malt vinegar and pickled onions but with time given to breathe this opens to wooden cherries, goat’s cheese and a tannin-heavy red wine aroma. Again the vinegar is first in the mouth, now tasting like a vintage balsamic. And then it reveals the cherries and a heft of spices and pepper. The finish brings sautéed onions to the cherries and the wood, finally tapering with a deep fruitiness which lends a complexity to this already complex beer. The mouth feel is thin with a lively carbonation. Overall this is a rewarding beer, one that I’m sure will be disliked by the many and adored by the few.

this beer is definitely fun!!! winy, vinous aroma. the body looks like a coke or a pepsi without ice. the flavor was entertaining. one person tasted worcershire sauce, one soda, others including myself carbonated red wine. i really enjoyed this beer. the carbonation is just right, medium. the body is just acidic enough to clear the palate nicely. finishes with some dark fruit flavors, plums and some cherries, there is also a cidery aspect to this one, like a hard apple cider. a very nice drink, i think my girlfriend has a new favorite beer.

I love this style of beer! Sour cherries everywhere. It pours a very dark red/brown. Smells very acidic. A large white head foams leaving a small rim for the remander of the glass. Tastes of sour cherry, raw cranberries. Such a great style of beer.
