3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from the Cheese & Wine Shop, Darlington. Dark ruby black colour, foamy beige head which diminishes leaving some lacing and aroma of roast malt, coffee, chocolate, leather, with a sour fruity slight barnyard edge. Taste is an up-front tangy berry fruit sourness intermingled with coffee and chocolate, and a sweet apple cider like note. Medium bodied, high to medium carbonation, slightly oily mouth feel and light bitterness through to a dry finish. Very drinkable indeed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle, 33cl) Black colour with a beige and short foamy layer. Lots of Gueuze/Lambic smell, instead of the expected dark and roasted malt-character, except for some little roasted malt and leather. Moderately sour flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Present Lambic-character with hints of roasted malt, chocolate and Barnyard/Brett notes; moderately sour and bitter-tart finish with a lingering apple-fruity aftertaste. A very interesting experiment. 03.III.13

Bottle. Black with a small head. Full bodied with a sour aftertaste. The sourness put me off, hence the score is lower than it might have been.
