4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Small cream head over foxy red-amber beer, quasi still. Sweet spices and sour wood. Delicious balance, very vinous & fruity nose. Mildly wry, wood. Finish with lactic acid, but the general impression is again one of (red)fruit (on wood). Lipsmacking sourishness, over vinous (but complex and refined) sweetishness, yet dry as a whole. Hints at chocolate. Light to medium bodied, nearly absent carbonation, acidburn, slight slickness. One of Jerômes’ best. Unbelievable that such a good Flemish Oud Bruin hails from the Jura...

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Moeder Fontainas. Amber brown colour, thick white head. Huge huge sour aroma, rarely happens that towards the end of a tasting you can smell a beer almost before it gets to the table! Sulphur, sour, nappies, sewage, fruity, and yet somehow appealing. Actually didn’t taste quite up to the smells, a little boozy maybe, heavy malt and funky sour, not quite the lengthy finish of say a Cantillon lambic. One of those beers which are an experience to even try.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a great sour. Vinous aroma and oaky woody and dark fruit aromas with some wine barrel in there as well. Maybe 6 of 10 vinous. Really like a consecration flavor with a bit more cherry flavor to it. A great beer.

Flaske 0,75l på Den Gode Nabo i Trondheim i hyggelig selskap med Elsa & Kjersti 26 Okt 13. Her gikk jeg i baret: Den ble opplyst å være en Biere de Garde - men viste seg å være en Sour som ikke passet til den utmerkete maten. Jeg led den “skjebne” å måtte drikke den alene, men det var i grunnen en fornøyelse. Mørkebrun. Nesten ikke skum. Syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken er bringebær & kirsebær. Tørr syrlig ettersmak. Av mine bedre sure.
