2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Ginger Man: Headless ruby pour- no effervescence. Mild aroma- a bit worty along with some odd chemical notes of paint thinner, acetone, medicinal notes- band aid, and stale pedicoccus tartness. Very little carbonation- no liveliness. Vacant flavor it’s watered down to begin with, and what is there is quite off. Nondescript tartness is present- no depth or complexity. A touch of diluted cherry and band aid. Watery, medicinal and dull.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly brownish, red liquid with a pink head. Aroma is a bit acidic and quite sweet with loads of cherry lollipop and cherries. Maybe a bit synthetic, definitely very fruity. Taste is actually rather dry, with lots of cherries and a hint of salad stalks towards the end. The acidity is quite held back, and the beer unfortunately dies rather fast. Still an ok brew.

13th January 2010
Cloudy dark red beer, apologetic pink head. Sourish nose with a touch of fruit. Light palate, slightly dry. Pretty low carbonation. Tart and fairly sour, just the right side of being lemon acid. Finishes semi dry and with Morello Cherry coming to the fore. A palate cleanser but a bit tart.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear dark red with a light pink head that did not stay.
Aroma of sour fruits, cherries, grapes. Flavors of sour fruits, red berries, and little watery. Low carbonation with some sourness, and little watery finish. Something is missing here.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft… Pre-C&P’sLYFO Throwdown… Clear blood-red ale with a small, creamy, pink head. The nose is subtle; just a pinch fruity and a smidge spicy. Extremely restrained; too much work pulling any aroma at all out of the glass. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Perfectly-balanced. Very lightly acidic and just a touch fruity. Much like the aroma, the flavor is ultra subtle and thin. Crisp, clean finish. Not much too it. Six percent alcohol? It’s well-hidden… not always an asset. Belgian table beer, I think.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a crystal clear, bright crimson red color strewn with fizzy carbonation bubbles. A minimal, quickly disappearing head leaves no lacing behind. There’s not much to the nose, really just a bit of cardboard, stale grain, and mildly tart red cherries. There’s no depth of aroma whatsoever. Likewise, the flavor fails to impress. Slightly medicinal, the sweet-tart cherry seems flat, and the grain bill just seems spent.
Light and watery, the body is intensely fizzy and just far from appealing. This is one of the poorer attempts at sour ale in my recent memory.

Is this thing a kriek??? Don’t joke...
Really flat, not sour, not sweet, not anything. Try something else from Alvinne...

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours out dark redish. Medium small to medium head, should hold some longer. Smell is sourn-sweet fruits. Taste is sour cherish, almost nothing else. Some alcohol, lightly spiced. Not my beer, but knew that when bought the bottle.

(Courtoisie de rodenbach99) Le liquide a une robe rouge rubis. Le nez présente des arômes surets et acides avec des parfums de laine mouillée et de cerises très légèrement sucrées. Les saveurs sont très peu réussies : le liquide tombe en eau surette et perd pratiquement toutes les qualités qui sont généralement propres aux bières dites sauvages. En bouche, le liquide est faiblement structuré. Son pétillement est bas et sa texture aqueuse. Quant à la finale, elle tombe à plat : indescriptiblement fuyante. En résumé, pas fameux.
