1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle in Geneva, Switzerland. Pours dark color with a very thin beige head. Aroma is sour malt. An iIntensely sour more so than even most sour beers. Another unenjoyable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a large fading head.
Nose shows heavy brett with spices and a bit of chocolate.
Similar flavours. Acidic notes, chocolate, lemon. A bit weird, in regards to having the brett in with the richer, darker malt. Doesn’t quite work.
Carbonation seems a bit excessive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours muddy brown with a creame coloured head.
Sweet spicy aroma.
Sweet and spicy but still rather balanced brew, bit like a light quad.

I would say, an easy to drink beer, with a refreshing fruit taste. Unfortunately the head goes away in a while. The aroma recalls clearly cinnamon and prunes and the taste is characterized by fruits and caramel notes, with a nice balance between sweet and sour. A very good product overall!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark Belgian ale with plenty of spice and fruit character. Hints of prunes and christmas spices this has a slight sour zing that lifts the palate and drives the beer flavour.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours a clear deep chestnut colored body with a creamy, short lived film of light brown color. Aroma like a regular Heinz tomato ketchup. Acidic and light fruity flavors and bitter. Smooth to drink. Medium body. Dry tongue.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml shared swingtop bottle, at local tasting. ABV 7.5%. Murky brown colour (end of bottle), low off-white head. Unusual and strong aroma, notes of yeast, spices, over-ripe fruits and caramel. Very fruity flavour, moderate acidity, okay but not particularly exciting.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear mahoganey with a small creamy white head. Aroma of Heinz ketchup, overwhelming everything else. Taste is sour, tart and dry. Better taste than aroma.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour a light white head that fades away. The nose is plum with warm spices, clove, cinnamon. Sweet smell with red fruit. The color is a cloudy beige color. The flavor starts with a sour beer then moves onto a sweet plum and grape flavor with a hints of carmel and raisin. Then a refreshing tartness and finishing with a bitter hoppiness. The flavor that lingers on your palette is the plum/grape flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is plum, rhubarb, cinnamon, hint of sour apple and lavender. Colour is a cloudy burnt orange. Taste is very interesting - good balance of sweet and sour - sour plums, green apple, rhubarb, spices. Reasonably complex on the palate, nice slightly sour finish.
