3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lactic sour aroma with some dark fruit and woodyness. Maybe a bit watery palate and sour is maybe 3 of 10 sour. Bit light and lacking body, but good flavors and a nice sour overall.

Very white foam! Intense dark brown color. Sour refreshing fruity. Bit flat and simple but still memorable.

Bottle @ home. Pours dark dirt brown with tannish head. Hint of sour apples. Hits the tongue with sour brown and tannins with plenty of acidity. Finish is long and light.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Description talked about a wine-like beer, and it wasn’t false. I would add "watery-like". It will - with difficulty - please beer drinkers and wine drinkers.

Very short lived expired sweet apple juice followed by a watery tasteless oblivion. Too weak.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bière qui fait penser au vin avec un côté acide. L’arrière goût est inexistant. Bière qui ne vaut vraiment pas le coup.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is between bordeaux-red and brown, with a white head that rapidly vanishes. Aroma off red fruits, which also reappears in the taste. This, in combination with a medium sour taste, gives the beer a winey taste. Love the beer, love the style of beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Having this two years past best before date, so not sure what effect this has had on the beer. Definitely winey and acidic as the label suggests. Would be good to try again fresh. Haven’t dipped my toes into sour style beers too much
