3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas during St-Bon-Chien World Tour. Side by side with the 2012 version. Hazy amber/orange with a small ring of off-white foam and little lacing. Aroma is winey with red fruits (mainly cherries) light caramel, oak and balsamic notes. Taste is moderately to heavily acidic with red fruits, strong winey presence and oak. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium/full body. Low/moderate carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Similar to the 2012 version, but more sour and less balanced. It’s a little more tasty though. Very good strong Sour beer.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis, but drank mostly by me. Very hazy auburn with a lively beige head. Sour cherries and acetic sourness are softened by oak and vinous traits. Yum.

On tap, slightly hazy ruby pour with no head. Aromas of wine and sour cherries. Flavor is sour upfront with some subtle oak, cherry, and wine notes. Nice and tart but not over the top sour. Decent.

750ml bottle (2011 vintage) pours hazy ruby red with no head. Nose is rich tart cherry, oak, and dark fruits. Taste is sweet and sour cherry, barrel, vanilla notes, dark fruits, raisin. Finish is sour cherry, raisin, sweet notes. A touch of carbonation would have helped a lot, but the sourness held up the flavors nicely. Enjoyable.
