25 cl bottle @ home. Pours brown red with a thin beige head. Aroma of red wine vinager with cherries, but in a good way. Taste is sour ofcourse but also fruity; cherries and grapes. Nice lively carbonation. Overall a very pleasant sour ale.

tia (2226) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle. Medium brown with reddish highlights, lasting head and nice lacing. Smells fresh and a little sweet tart. Hits sweet then you get a hint of sour. More sweet, though. Clean on the palate.

ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 21, 2012
This beer is acquired taste, I think. It’s definitely unlike any other beer, but I’m not on the bandwagon yet. Tastes of sweet brandy, red meat, and yeast mixed together. Sour finish. Small head.

3.6
shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle at a tasting at the White Horse. Brown amber colour with small beige creamy head. Aroma is fruity, red wine, maybe clove, touch of vinegar and lots of funk. Taste is creamy sweet, bit of wood and nice and sour. Lots of fruit, berries. Maybe a touch too sweet.
