gEUS (890) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2014
750 ml bottle - ouch this stings. Pours hazy dark amber. Nuts and raisins in the nose. Soft sweetness in the palate (at least in the beginning) immediately followed by a fierce acid. Destroys one’s palate, burns in the stomach. This is extremely sour, a bit too sour...Pity, Alvinne, Haand and Loverbeer know how to put subtlety into their beers, but this is simply too much.

Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Flat reddish copper pour with no head. Smells like sour raspberry, red wine vinegar, and oak. A bit of lemon, some leather, and Sweet Tarts. Quite sour on the palate. Lots of sour berries and red wine vinegar. Some candied apple, oak, and lemon juice. Minimal funk. Would be better if it was carbonated a bit.
