slight pink head that disappears quickly without lacing. pink colour. aroma is raspberry, sour, fresh. taste like aroma but with a pronounced citric sour finish. rather thin body and very carbonated. not well balanced, lacks complexity. expected much more from this, a gambrinus is way better, but perhaps that is not a fair comparisson? bottle @ cantillon quintenssence ’14

@Quintessence - cloudy reddish beer with no head retention; fair aroma of raspberries, vinous; solidly sour and with a good malt backbone; light earthy, some sweetness below; dry and long very sourish red fruity finish - a solid beer with tons of character

Taste at Savor. My favorite beer of the night. Cloudy light red. Aroma of raspberries, slight funk, slight vinegar. Flavor is very complex with the fruit coming through. Tartness is in perfect balance. This is a very refreshing and exciting beer. Would love to get my hand on a bottle or two.
