BottleHound (156) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear brown/red with off-white head. Aroma has winegar and red berries. Flavor is sweet with red cherries and currants. Almost feel like a red dessert wine. Nice, but certainly not very drinkable.

Garlic_of_Doom (633) - SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle from Barley Wine. Pours red with nearly no head at all. Smells vinegary in a postive way, red wine as well. The taste is a bit staggering with light red wine, sour apple and red currant and some small sweet tones. Some woody notes. Finishes off nice - dry and sour.

Great for hot days, this sour is well balanced, but not something you'll want much of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UncleKorm (1248) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle poured a clear red hue, fully diminishing beige head. Faint musky aroma. Initial taste is light sweet with a sour finish. Flavors of cherry, yeast, and wood resin. Creamy mouth feel and soft carbonation. Medium bodied. A pleasant balance of sweet and sour.

Bozo_skeleton (1072) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 13, 2014
De couleur orange tirant sur le rouge sombre, tres grosse carbo et collet persistant de grosses bulles. Aromes acide de vinaigres et de fruits rouges comme la cerise. Je mattendais a plus dacidit en attaque et bien non elle arrive au final... Note boises dues au viellissement en fut. Mais cela nest pas dans la demesure, et meme si ce style de biere est plus exigeant et ne peu pas plaire a tout le monde (moi compris) je reste agreablement surpris.

yumyum (221) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
not generally my favourite style. Nice sour winey nose. Taste is full, not overly sour but a slight underlying sour taste. Good mouth feel, smooth and rich, Ok would not turn one down but wouldnt seek it out either.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Barwa ciemno rubinowa z ladnie krazkujaca piana. Aromat winny owocowy. W smaku winne, owocowe, musujace, kwaskowe, delikatne. Przyjemnie sie pije ale jak dla mnie to idzie w strone wina musujacego.

radzik5555 (635) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 9, 2015
Butelka 0.25L.
Wygląd: Miedziane, klarowne. Obfita, kremowa piana, średnio i wielkopęcherzykowa. Szybko redukuje się do 2mm i lekko firankuje.
Aromat: Kwaśno słodki, owocowy i dziki. Najbardziej z owocw wyczuwalna brzoskwinia. Po zamieszaniu i lekkim ogrzaniu pojawia się intensywna farba emulsyjna. Trochę nut stajennych i octowych.
Odczucie: Wysycenie wysokie, ciało średnie, faktura musująca i lekko cierpka.
Smak: Słodkie i kwaśne zarazem. Lekko dzikie, końska derka, zbożowe, chlebowe i tostowe. Farba emulsyjna, owoce- rodzynki, figi i śliwka. Goryczki nie ma wcale.
Całość: Jak piłem poprzednim razem to nie czułem intensywnej farby emulsyjnej, ktra tutaj zdecydowanie przeszkadza. Do tego za słodkie.

rotaman14 (570) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2015
Smells like young red wine mixed cleaning agent. Nice sour-sweet taste, with hints of cinammon, berries, brown sugar. Very much reminds me of that one faro I drank some time ago. Slick medium body, fizzy carbonation. This isnt going to be to everyones liking, but I enjoyed it once I looked past the peculiar aroma.
