4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (750 ml). Clear red with a medium diminishing pink head that leaves a small fully lasting pink neck. Some lacing. Aroma is soft with raisins, vinous, barnyard and tart. Taste is slightly sweet with raisins, good sourness, red wine notes and some earthy notes. Acidic and vinous mouthfeel that leaves the mouth dry. Great balance and wonderful complexity. The red wine notes are different from beers that have only matured in wine barrels (because of the grapes used) and it make this beer unique. Truly a masterpiece!

Bottle: Really old one, approx. 10 or more years. Hazy, reddish, light pink color, very fizzy, no head. Notes of red wine, vinegar, cider. Flavor is also very sour with intensive notes of vinegar, citrus and citrus peel, red wine, barrels. For sure a good beer but too sour for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
dark pink into red. Vinegary aroma with loads of funk and sour grapes. A bit vineous although I think that the type of grape does not matter. Refreshing and good.

Bottle. Pours a clear pink beer with a small sparkling pinkish had on top that leaves really quick. Aroma is fruity, vineous, oak and funky Brett. Flavor is medium sour, fruity and has a big oak presence with vineous characters. Soft, light carbonated mouthfeel. Quite a nice lambic, lacks some complexity. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample shared by a friend. Slightly hazy reddish-plum color with a medium fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of vinous oak, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart berries, peppery yeast, wood and grapes. The finish is moderately sour with a wine and yeast aftertaste. Good all around.
