3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper coloured with a medium head. Very weak light sour aroma. I would describe it as a Rodenbach mild with a more bitter woody taste. It is however a bit thin.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2010 June 2009: Cloudy amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Strong aroma of oak, giving me both coconut and wine. Dry and tart oak flavour, rather vineous. Very American in it’s character.
Borefts Festival 2010: Has developed more brett character, more funk, and a touch of popcorn. Tart cherries in the flavour

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle from the Alvinne brewery shop. Orangey red colour with thin lasting off white head. Flemish red sour ale aroma. which is remarkably attractive. A touch of the wine, but almost sour cherry like. Touch of wood on the aroma too. That’s one good smelling beer. A little sweeter than a full on sour, which I guess comes from the wine. Certainly this beautiful wild cherry/red wine aroma/flavour comes through. It really is very good indeed. Just the right level of wild yeast character gives it a biting sourness on the finish, but wonderfully balanced by some very juicy light red fruits. Ridiculously drinkable. Good condition in mouth, the right level of carbonation, a little soft, not harsh, but enough to tingle the tongue. As a vinous Flemish sour, it really is remarkably good.

Bottle thanks to mes at mesandsims. Alround rating: Exccellent stuff this, its like an acidic toffee apple of a drink, the yeasts and grapes really work well together and make it massivly drinkable.

Bottled. Aroma is vinous, caramel malts, has some vanilla, a bit oak. Hazy, red-brown coloured with an off-white, thin head. The taste is a bit sour, sweet, very fruity, bit vinous again with some vanilla. Medium bodied. On the dry side. Nice.
