Bottle, 33cL. Batch 2013. Home. A black brown beer with a medium beige head. Medium persistence. Fruity aroma (red berries), pepper, toast and vanilla in the end. Bitterness is medium to heavy in the end. Complex but accessible because light sweetness always underlines bitterness. Medium body. Sweet texture. Soft carbonation. Long heavy bitter finish. Warming notes. Great experience ! Last beer of the night...

An interesting beer, very sour. Pours a deep red with a tan head. Smells sweet. Taste is definitely cuvee, fruity with some wine, and a very sour finish. Had on tap at La Trappe
