3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 375ml. Aged 18 months piror to tasting. Poured hazy bloody pink with an averaged sized, pink, frothy head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of acidic fruit with strong notes of musty wild yeast, sea water, cranberry juice, sour raspberries and fresh lemon juice. A very strong acidity in the flavor with sour yeasty notes, tart acidic fruit, sour cherries, fresh lemon juice, unripe cranberries, salty/brine-like notes and light notes of white-whine vinegar. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry/tart mouthfeel, slightly syrupy texture and a long length finish.

@Borefts 2014, rood krieken met fruitig aroma, zuurtje, smaken zijn die van een matig fruitzuur maar wel met goede fruittonen van de krieken. niet zo zoet wat zwakjes, mooie zuurcomplexiteit. beats a radler !

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes. On tap at Mikkeller Bar SF for Zwanze Day. Surprised to see I have never rated this.
Aroma is fairly fruity with a fairly large, fresh raspberry character. Some light citrus acidity and light barnyard and earthy funkiness.
Pours a cloudy pinkish red with a thick, small, soft pink head that displays good retention. Low lacing and no legs.
Flavor is moderately acidic with a light citrus note. Moderate raspberry character, but not as jammy a sin the aroma. Medium earthy funkiness in the finish with some light barnyard funk. Funkiness is more prevalent than in the aroma. Hints of oak.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium, soft carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice, fruity raspberry sour with a lot more complexity than its American counterparts. The herbal, earthy undertones add a nice complexity. Great young, great but in a different way with age.

Really nice brew, the fruit and dried fruit was great, The yeasty funk started to pop through. I have a few bottles saved and will love to try it as the funk comes through more over time

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske, 375 ml. Pink øl med lyserødt knitrende skum, der ligner en pigefødselsdag i børnehaven. Frisk hindbær-næse. Sur-sød bær-frugtighed med en lille smule funk og en en stram, tør finish. Høj drikbarhed, men jeg tror jeg foretrækker den i en lidt ældre udgave....

Great sour raspberry smell and taste to it. The raspberry isn’t as pronounced as it is with the Lou Pepe Framboise, but it’s still very good.
