Bière de la "sour collection" d’Alvinne, avec levure morpheus et houblon suranné. Niveau abv de 10 %, fermentation mixte. Mon exemplaire était à 7 mois après sa date, ce qui devait (hypothétiquement ) améliorer cette bière... La gloire est encore loin !! Couleur abricot foncé, avec un voile de levure en suspension mais joli (énorme saturation à l’ouverture). Mousse blanc cassé, bien crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes d’orge concassé, girofle, vinaigre de in, pelure d’oignon. 1ère bouche veloutée sur du lambic et de l’oignon. Arrière-bouche dense, longue, aigre. Bouches suivantes et longueur où on prend les mêmes et on recommence … Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure douce, fine, très belle ligne (mais que peut-elle faire là-dedans ??). Alcool très bien en théorie, mais il ne peut relever pareille soupe.... (d’oignons, bien sûr). Finale aigre (tiens donc..). CONCLUSION : bière pour sado maso, amateur de lambic et autre vinaigre. Mentionnons quand même la belle mousse et la texture veloutée. Point final.

Draft. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of berries, brettanomyces, and citrus fruits. The flavor is acidic with notes of berries, straw, alcohol, wood, and brettanomyces, leading to a tart finish.

mjs (6387) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2016
(Keg at Stadin Panimobaari, 20160706) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and vineousness. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, vineousness, sweetness, honey, tartness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, tart and bitter. A bit boozy tart brew.

Mesjasz (906) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 28, 2016
Aromat bardziej lambikowy, ewidentnie czuć skórę, agrest, ziemię i skórkę cytryny, a w tle trochę jogurtowy kwas mlekowy. Smak średnio kwaśny i wytrawny. W smaku ogrom skóry i niedojrzałych owoców, limonki. Lekka nuta winna i trochę ziołowej goryczki pod koniec. Posmak jest krótki, wytrawny i lekko cierpki, zostawia na języku troszkę smaku skórek winogron. Piwo nie jest zbyt złożone, ale jest poprawne i smaczne.
