JorisPPattyn (7818) - Antwerpen, - SEP 19, 2012
Thick, lightly pinkish head, stable over orange-pink, clouded beer. Very fruity (& vinous) nose; cherry, but also other fruit - rosehips definitely possible. Quite some acids emerging in the nose: fruit-, lactic, but I seem to get also faint acidic. But intensely fruity and iniviting. Sourish, near-tart fruity flavour. Again sour cherry, pomegranate juice, rosehips, wild plums, and also the elderberries emerging. Finish is dry, with a spicy touch. Feels more carbonated than it looks. Dry, extremely refreshing, light body. Excellent fruitbeer. Really nice and aaaarrrrghhh ’more-ish’. Many thanks to Chris Kabouter and Freddy!

Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Super cloudy orange body with a gray & beige tinted foam that settles on top. Aroma includes honey, slightly tart fruit, mild vinous white grape, apple skins, a handful of grass, & lightly pungent floral essence. Taste hits with tart green apple & white grape up front, leading into some notable vinous oak, giving off that wine-like character halfway through. The finish shows more grassy & floral notes, ending quite dry. A nice, easy drinker with a pleasant tartness that I wasn’t expecting.

Bottle: The aroma consists of roses, lemon peel, citrus, and faint white wine notes. It pours a hazy dull orange with a minimal white head. The flavor starts with citrus and light lemon. The finish has lemon peel, white wine, and floral notes. It’s light bodied with light carbonation.

wchesser (1123) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2014
At Avery Sour Fest. Pretty pink. Nose is grass, roses, and jasmine/elder flowers. Vegetal taste with some red berry fruit, but mostly roses. Interesting, but like drinking rose water and kind of tiring.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. pours a hazy dark orange color. Tart, brett, hoppy, semisweet aroma. Initially tartness, semi sweet, light malty character, follows with a bit more tart and a moderate hop bitterness.

Bottle. Nose is grassy. Cloudy light red. Taste is literally like flowers and shrubs. Pretty fan tasty. Floral. Yup. Just like drinking flowers.

Pours a barely translucent dark amber with an eggshell head. Hoppy aroma has notes of rose and a hint of sour fruit. Sour flavor has rose and hoppy notes, and is not overly tart, just enough to be pleasant. Smooth, fairly firm texture is fairly fizzy. Rose hip beer? Warum nicht?
