4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Cloudy amber color with red shades; medium sized compact head. The style is there; this year the aroma has more bread and feety impression (along with the usual malt, wood, fruit, light acetone), sweetish. Good body structure; semi-sweet malt flavor, with medium-sharp acidity, and some acetone; good fruity level; solid and complex; it has more sediment than the previous years.
Excellent as usual; the aroma is more elegant than the flavor.

Caramel brown color. Fruity sour cider aroma. Funky lactose flavor, dry yet sweet as well. Hmmmm....hard to figure this one out. Just a little too sweet.

Draft pour. Pours a reddish orange with a sour, boozy, berry aroma. Nice blend of cherry, raspberry, and cherry flavor. Tart berry finish. Very nice sour ale. Sour flavor that sticks around. Good stuff.

Draft @ Saint Bock. Pours a hazy rusty sienna color with a finger of gaseous khaki foam. Nice mix of cranberry, cherry, basement murk and some solid vinous acidity, cider vinegar, wet wood and lingering tart funk.

Deep amber plum color... Aroma is fairly light, notes of dark fruits, cherries, caramel, funk... Flavor is out of this world, hit of vinegar, huge notes of dark cherry, berries, dark fruits, tartness and oak on finish... Amazingly complex, hint of tobacco... World class sour

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at tap on 04/06/2014. Clear red brown colour with a big off white head. Aroma is sugar with dark and red fruits. Taste is high acid with red fruites, peaches and apples. Alcohol is high but well integrated in the taste. Taste is very intensive and, in my opinion, well balanced. Next one please!

Nose: hints of white grapes, vinegar, oak, raspberries, taste has a pineapple-like touch, very surprising, also a very balanced beer, never could have guessed the abv.
