3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Hazy light amber. White head. Aroma is grass, raspberry, sherbet. Great fruity character. Complex taste again. Quite acidic. Drinkability isn’t the highest, maybe because of that high ABV, but this is still a formidable sour.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thank you for sharing Yarric! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ "De grote Black Tuesday Tasting". 2011 Vintage. Dark orange, little white head. Nose is hugely puckering, sour puckering raspberries dominate, oak, vinegar, little peach, faint strawberry. Taste is very basic but satisfactory puckering sour, acidic raspberry, oak, lemon sour, light very sour apricot, grapes,… Puckering & acidic body. Harsh profile but enjoyable, nice taste, good stuff, a tad too simple.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
No head, hazy orange-pink beer. Raspberry, bit of barnyard odours, sourish. Lactic acid, fruitacids, but very, very acidic, tart fruit. Acidburn, acidthinning. Long-lasting flavours and dry-out. Harsh - not one for the fainthearted, but I could still dig this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
8 oz tulip glass live from the barrel, 2014 Vintage, at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House in Portland, Oregon. The pour is a hazed orange copper with a minimal foamy off white head. The aroma is a muted white wine along with some of the fruit raspberry apricot and Tripel notes. The taste is sour funk right away, settles into bright lemon citrus tart, moves to apricot fruit and a bunch of white wine in the finish. Tons going on in the is beer, well integrated. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, certainly cask level naturally low carbonation with tart and white wine in the back. Nice one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 2011 Project bottle.
Aroma is fairly fruity with a nice moderate raspberry note. Some medium light citrus and acidity notes. Light oak and medium light nuttiness.
Pours a slightly hazy, copper orange with a medium sized, thin, slightly off white head that quickly disappears. No lacing or legs.
Flavor has a moderate acidity with some light citrus notes. Nice raspberry fruit notes with some moderately sweet noyaux character. Light oak notes with faint alcohol spice. Some lingering raspberry, noyaux and acidity.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, this beer is surprisingly nice with a good fruit character. Acidity is clean, but a touch sharp. The noyaux adds a nice, unique character to the beer.
