4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A 75 cl bottle shared at Delices et Caprices in Brussels. Intense and enticing aroma of tinny, musty grapefruit, cider must. Fairly tart, lightly bitter, with a spidery dry finish and lingering bitter aftertaste. A damned strange beer, but charming.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
.75 bottle. Copper slight amber, cloudy. Nose has an interesting maltiness, some farmyard hay, but also darker rye/amber flavours. A tad of gluely tones, stables and old leaves. Body is very acidic, a bit thin perhaps in flavour, but has still quite a bit of hops and good funk. A nice horseblanket finish with some murky leaves. Dry, palate cleansing, mouth watering. As the bottle is nearing its end, the flavours intensify and a tart apple fruityness emerges. Very good!

Har något rutten över sig. Känns som en blandning av en lambic och en trapist. Kul bärs. På delirium

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75c bottle. Clear, red/brown with small, white head. Nose : apple, citrus, wood, pine, cookie, tart. Sip : oily texture, low carbonation. Just a little bit thicker body then water. Sweet tart taste, sour fruity with acid lambic like flavor. It’s not that dry though. As I’m not a big fan of sour ales this one is right for me. Refreshing, hiding the booze very well. Nice stuff.
