Somies amb una olor amb un gust, un aroma que et porti a records que tenies amagats a l’inconcient, un sabor cítric, vi jove, sidrà i l’acidesa de la lima, aquella dolçor de la fruita. Impressionat. Top five de les birres. Busqueu-la.

Dacrza (486) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 8, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Chimay goblet... OCCASION: celebrating birthday #37 in style... APPEARANCE: dense, dark amber-brown body with a single-finger froth that settles swiftly to a ring around an island of softened cirrus... AROMA: incredible red wine waft--especially merlot--takes the nostrils by force; secondary fragrant hops with bubblegum yeasts make this an alluring beer to hover over...a bit of cherries and some plum too...complex......PALATE: incredibly dry, warm, full-bodied mouthfeel--definitely worth a chalice and an evening; three sips to thirty sips, just as easy drinking...TASTE: sour but comfortably palatable; deliciously reminiscent of merlot, with a yeasty component that conflates the grape and rounds it... OVERALL: As farmhouse ales go, this is one beauty that made me buy a Saison Dupont on my last shopping trip, if only because the style, when done well, is inimitable; powerful, delectable, alcoholic but sensible in its balance; bought on a whim, this exceeded my expectations...

been wanting to try one of these for a while // finally I would say // 25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic // very dark pomegranate, off-white head, neat appearance // smell is rich sour jam, berries, fruit liquer, both s & t have an element to me that oddly for me feels like a sour La Trappe O.A. 3, vinegar, wood // taste is round, soft, jammy straight lime, strawberry jam, berry jam, quite heavy on the strawberries. vinegar, wood, almost spirit like in the ending, sourness sinks in, malty // jammy body // yeah

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Draft. In Kansas City. No shit. Hazy ruby maroon color, thick tan head, good retention, solid lacing. Aroma of sour prunes, dates, plums. Taste is sour summer and winter fruit, raisins, dates, figs. Amazing.

zizzybalubba (1380) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2013
On tap during the 43 Hours of Dark at The Birch, Norfolk, VA. Reddish-brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of sour cherry, apple cider vinegar, and oak. Beautiful sour taste of tart cherry and oak. Hard to believe this is an 11.2% ABV beer as the alcohol is not detected. An awesome sour.

hammerhead01 (40) - Louvain-la-Neuve, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2014
37.5 cl bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is berries, slight alcohol and sweet. Complex and balanced sour beer. (it is very smooth). Some light alcohol in the aftertaste. An excellent beer.

eManu (441) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2012
This is a beautiful beer. From bottle No. 00276. Pours a deep amber red color with a really nice looking beige head, that stay nicely. Aromas for dry red fuits, berries, malts and notes of oaks. Complex flavors of dry red fruits, apples, light woody notes. Nice dry sourness, reminds me of some great lambics. Nice complex evolving and long lasting taste. Very enjoyable. Had the 2009, and this 2011 is just as nice, very top consistant Swiss Ale. Can’t wait to try other BFM.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
On tap. Clear dark red ambder with almost no head. Very pleasant floral caramel apple aroma. Very bright thick sticky palate. Tastes of lemon! Sour green apple and caramel with a dry oaky vanilla and candy finish and lingering floral perfume on the back end. Excellent.

Oklar röd/brun i färgen med litet vitt skum. Doftar sur-söt, mogna körsbär, lite funky, vinöst, karamell. Smakar härligt sur-sött, vinöst, funky, körsbär, röda bär, vinäger. Fantastiskt.
