4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ ML Fontainas, Italian Fest Sept ’14.
Orangée sur un filament rougeâtre, col blanc léger.
Arôme est agréablement fruité rouge, sur un bouquet oscillant entre raisin et framboise. Garde ce petit rétro suret rappelant les bières de Loverbeer.
Palais est subtilement sour accompagné d’un très beau fruité. Garde aussi un profil épais malté mais avec un rappel de châtaigne - farineux. Effervescence est moyenne et un style définitivement italien dans son usage des levures sauvages.

Liquid autumn color. Creamy head. Fairly tart nose with raspberries and other seed fruits. The mouth is med body with tons of fresh fruit noticeable and balances out the sourness a bit. Oak is also noticeable. Very well balanced. Easy drinkin, nothing hardcore, but pleasurable sour beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks! Sampled draft @ Italian Beer Week-end / Zwanze 2014 CML. Bright light red orange, creamy pinkish white head. Huge slight lacto raspberry nose, lots of pits, tart is minor & touch overripe raspberry quality, light hay. Taste is tart juicy raspberry, light bitter grass, touch odd metallic note, taking this slightly down, tad malty, light tart fruits, faint yoghurt sour. Solid fruity body. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught Pinkish, very dense & fine stable head over hazy pink-amber beer. Intense smell of fruity, Brettaxenic, wood, sulphur, barnyard, bit of leather. Sweetish, fruity (raspberry), hints at fruitsugars but ending very dry indeed. Again a bit of leather flavour. Lipsmacking sourness, dry, near dry-out effect, fruit-filled, quite attenuated. Excellent, not too preposterous raspberry ale.

Reddish golden with a large off-white head. Aroma is raspberries, honey, red wine vinegar, hint of funk. Light-medium bodied, lightly tart and fruity on the palate with a dry finish. Taste is raspberries, red wine vinegar, lambic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Hazy orange pinky red with a thin collar of white pink bubbles. Bit of a fruit funky aroma. So I’m guessing there is some lambic in here. Proper Belgian funk with some rather pleasant fruit, what is that raspberry? Sharp fruit whatever it is. The funky manure aroma is lovely. Wow lovely beer. Body is a little thin maybe. A bit light in the body. Finish has got more raspberry and a little sourness and some funky manure. Probably more manurey that most Belgian framboise. Got better as I took the carbonation out of it and the fruit sweetened and soured up at the same time. Wow, so much better decanting from one glass to another. The fruit is sweet in the mouth and then sour really sour on the finish. That is lovely. Proper funky sweet sour fruity lambic. I melted as I drank it. Super funky. I can’t remember a more manure beer. Awesome.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle share on a train on Isle of Wight. Pours unclear orange with a small frothy off white head. Raspberries, barnyard, light band aid, grass, hay. Medium body, oily texture, medium/high carbonation, medium sweet and light sour. Low on raspberries and more dominated by funky barnyard notes. Still quite cleansing and refreshing.

Refrigerated 12.7 oz. brown bottle poured into a white wine glass. Clear light amber with little off-white head. Aroma is tart, medium body, medium carbonation, and some small bubble lacing. Taste is tart, a little raspberry, and slightly bitter finish. Not bad, but expected more.
