Sampled draft @ Borefts 2014. Thank you! Dark hazy pink, light pink head. Huge tart raspberry in the nose, skins, very tart; Very acidic huge raspberry taste, light vinegar, puckering, faint sugar. Dries out the mouth. Super delicious.

Wow, a real special beer. At first it might look like a fruit upped version of a red ale, with its bright appearance. But the nose suggests much more, with its red berry and raspberry aroma complemented by lots of aging and biscuit malt base. Gives a real vanilla richness to it. Wouldn’t have given it 8% abv too. A bit of an over the edge beer and undoubtedly too expensive when bought by the bottle, but it is a very interesting beer. (On tap at Borefts 2014)

@ Borefts 2014. Murky red/brown colour, small head. Medium carbonation. Aroma of red fruit, balsamico vinegar, some brown sugar. Tart and refreshing, light bitter. Very good, reminds me a bit of Rodenbach Vintage.

On tap at Boreft. Reddish brown with a small brownish head. Aroma of sour cherries, bit of a solvent like undertone. Taste is sour cherries followed by nail polish remover. Something must have gone wrong here.

Pours deep red and hazy, without any foam. Not well carbonated? Aroma has a lot of sour berriness (cherry and red currant) with some dried fruitiness and good malty backbone, which is almost caramelly and sweet. Taste is very attacking and sour, with a lot of cherry and black and red currant. I can feel the maltiness also that is spicy or full of herbs. Palate is attacking and sourness makes it very dry. Same time this is also very full, you can feel the malty backbone although I can’t feel the alcohol. Nice sour ale, with very strong and sour taste. Good balance, although this is little attacking.

Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl estampillée 2010 #2440 au Sherwood Pub (Nicorvo), couleur rubis, effervescence et mousse moyenne. Une bière avec une grosse attaque sur le fruit rouge acide type groseille et continuité sur la vanille et le sureau, une tuerie !
