4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Rusty copper brown pour. Medium sized, sparkling and right away disappearing creamy off white beige foamy head. It leaves a headless hazy red ish brown colored beer in my glass. When held into a light source it turns into a hazy orange colored beer.
Aromas of wild yeast, sour grapes other fruits like green apples, apricot, berries, raisin, caramel, nuts, some sweets like sour sweet candy and something cherry sour sweetness, malts, quite a delicate and complex aroma. Mostly yeasty sour.
Flavour is a good mix of sour fruit and yeast: sour and tart tones of wild yeast, berries, tart, grapes, green apples, yoghurt (while not lactic), some straw, hay, malts, wood, light something wild barnyard farmish something, but than again not. Is that part of the complexity? The flavour is also mostly yeast and sour fruit. Very nice.
Aftertaste is little sour, light dry, yeasty, some fruit and woody malts.
Medium carbo, soft smooth and sour mouthfeel, good medium to lightly fuller body and a texture between watery and creamy.
This is not the typical lactic sour or brett sour, sour ale. It’s more while at the same time it’s quite easy. Still it has a complex aroma, flavour and body.
