Slightly hazy, pinkish red beer with a small pink head. Sour and fruity raspberry aroma with a little hint of yeast/dairy. Horseblanket and regular geuze- aroma’s. Taste is actually the same: sharp sour, fruity, dry. One of the most overhyped beers if you ask me, not worth the high prices they ask for it.

Sampled a 2010 bottle @ Zeebra 2014. After several people highly recommended it, I shared a sample with Thijs (cause the beer was very expensive). Since I don’t like sours this beer was a disappointment. It was the sourest beer I ever drank (more sour than for example hommage and ypres). The fluid yoghurt taste is very dominating, really grabs you. Disliked it.

Pours an orange red slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells lots of framboise, medium sour, limonade. Tastes framboise, medium sour, bit tarted with a nice little sweet finish. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

Bottle 2011 version. Side-by-side with 2007 Hommage. Dark murky red, almost purple highlights and no head. Not necessarily inviting. Aroma is old rotten raspberry, some rubber, very earthy. Taste is better with tart raspberry. The acidity is still quite tamed which makes it drinkable. Light and flat palate. I prefered Hommage as their was less rotten raspberries and cherries added a nice twist. I really had a hard time drinking my pour because of the funky raspberries in the aroma, something I don’t really appreciate.

@ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours pink and cloudy/hazy. Big (huge) raspberry nose with cherry coming through as well, it smells as it should sour but fresh. Funk sour (fruity sourness) straight away then you get a dry citrus finish, excellent beer thanks to Jan (Fonefan)
