3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 25 cl. From Boissons Center in Montagny-sur-Yverdon (CH). Dark-red color, creamy and dense foam. Flavor slightly acid-sour of fruit, vinous,woody notes. The palate is a complex beer, no too acid, soft fruits, notes of raspberry-cherry. A beer with old, we guess the time and the patience to obtain such a nectar without acetic keys. Final thirst-quenching, vinous with key apple, cider.
