4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
from notes. served from bottle 51. pours dark red hue, almost purple with a light pink head that holds for a few moments much brighter than lamvinus. Intense funk and rich fruity grape. raw juice and skins. intense fruit smell. Taste is very rich, fruit grape backed up with a lemony pineapple apricot tangy lambic background. Musky funk and a touch of barrel. grape flavor is like grapes right off the vine. soft mouthfeel with moderate/ low carbonation overall dry without much residual sweetness. Overall a masterpiece.

750 ml bottle shared by BOLTZ7555 during RBWG - Pours a hazy pinkish color with a thin off white head. Light carbonation. Aroma is floral and estery. Flavor is tart esters. Finish is tart too. I realize my description is vague, but when it comes to the complexities of great Sours, I’m not the one to write descriptions. I do appreciate this beer and feel it was a privilege to be able to try it. Thanks Jason!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at the release of batch 3 Rosso down at Captain Lawrence. Enormous thanks to the guy who brought this (who I’ve met a couple times before and I can never remember his name, so next time remind me to remember your name), as it was the best beer of the day for just about everyone who tried it I think. Pours a clear ruby color with a thin white head. Light vinegar, just vaguely reminiscent of the classic Cantillon profile. Very soft acid and hay, fruit and grapes. Big berry flavors, and a bit of haw fruit. Fruity, smooth and soft, light fruit with very faint vinegar. Sweet grape skins, lingering soft fruit and light acid. Outstanding.
