2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like a red wine - berry, oak, plum. Quite tart with flavours of bitter berries. Very vinegary. I tried this along with some other heavier ales so it may have thrown off my palate. Iíll have to re-rate on its own.

Colore ambrato torbo con assenza completa di schiuma. Al naso in evidenza marasche e amarene, e acetico. In bocca Ť molto equilibrata fra líacetico pungente e il fruttato. Buona davvero...

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Hazy red amber, and nearly completely still-- no head on this at all. Aroma and flavour are intensely sour and vinegary. Acidic and unpleasant, harsh in the throat. Beyond any subtlties of "sour cherries"etc, this was just too much. Can a sour beer be off? I donít know man...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Poured a dark ruby color with no head. Smell was all funk and dried cherries. taste was very thin. Lots of dried cherries and angain funk in this. Vinegary aftertaste. This was sour at first, but had a sweetness to it also. Interesting to say the least. I thought it was a good beer, but not best.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
06/07/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (330ml bottle). Ambrata intensa, con riflessi color rubino, lievemente torbida a causa dei lieviti in sospensione, schiuma praticamente assente. Naso intensissimo e di una complessitŗ incredibile. Decisamente acido, ma straordinariamente bilanciato dalle note fruttate e dolciastre. In bocca conferma le stesse sensazioni, Ť un miracolo di equilibrio, tra le note acide (con lievi punte acetiche mai invadenti), caramellato e fruttato (ciliegie). Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Una grandissima birra acida, elegante, evocativa, da applausi.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours a deep amber color with ruby edges. Slightly hazy, no foam to speak of. Aroma is vinegary and tart. Balsamic vingar, wood, cherries and vanilla. Taste is sweet-sour with balsamic vinegar and cherries. Wood, red berries, and some funk. Completely flat and quite thin body. Itís like a perfect mix between a flemish red and a kriek lambic. Awsome, balanced and delicious. Carbonation would make this perfect.
