3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy, ruddy brown pour with a thin, off white head. Aroma is Full of tart fruit and vinous notes, sweet malt, light, crusty bread, earthy funk and fallen leaves. Flavor is tart and funky up front, with some earthiness, vinous notes, dark fruit, buttery and lightly toasty oak, candi sugar sweetness, vanilla and a nice light booziness. Medium body, sicky, chewy entry, with a gradual fade into a slightly dry and pleasantly pucker inducing tart finish. Pretty freaking delicious, I have never had a sour with an ABV this high, and I have to say I enjoyed it. Like an earthy quad with a nice tart backbone.

Bottle at our buds new house, Kevin well done. Poured clear reddish brown, almost no carbonation. Nose is oaky, vanilla, almost Flemish brown, red wine notes. Lots of the same on the palate with some acidity in the finish. Maybe a little flat but still a hell of a sour

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Original brew, in a series of vintages, this one matured in a combination of no less than 11 wine barrels; essentially a ’massive ale’ in abbey beer form, but the wine barrels render it ’oaky’ and sourish, reminiscent of a ’versnijbier’ or even an ’oud bruin’. Off-white, thin and unstable head on a misty bronze beer; smells of caramel, red wine, yoghurt, passion fruit, bread, blackcurrant; very fruity taste with an explicit, drying lactic acidity that carries on till deep into the finish, soft maltiness, a bit oily mouthfeel, woody. Interesting, especially since it’s Swiss, but I guess this is only truly enjoyable to those who prefer the sour beer types.
