5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
75 cl bottled Oct. 12, 2011. Bright pink/red with a pink-white head. Nose is berries (mostly strawberry), leather furniture, some vinegar, vinous. Tart fruits, oak, wine, star fruit, bitter grapefruit. Tickling tartness. Not incredibly tart but left my mouth pretty numb 2/3 through. Soft spritzy body. Probably the driest finish of any beer I’ve ever had. Leaves the pleasant chalky dryness you get in your mouth after eating a banana or two. Just an incredible palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Cantillon. Pour is murky red/purple with a small pink head. Aroma and flavor of grape vines, cherries, wood, slight barnyard, and acidic grapes. Finish has a bit of salt/vinegar in it but it is masked nicely by the sour red grapes. Good.

Red light muggy color with no foam. The smell is light sour and a tiny bit grapy. The taste is moderately sour for a cantillon and has a light blurry feeling on the tounge. Dry and sour aftertaste. Very pleasant.

Bottled November 21 2010. Clear chrystalline seemingly confected red glow in colour. Nose of sharp must, cherry and fermented grape wrapped in cheese cloth. Gentle acidic lip smacking tartness followed by more extreme elements of red currant,cherry, wood and wild yeast.Leaves a lingering puckering chewiness in the mouth. An experience.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Friends of Ham, Leeds. Dark pink, with a light haze. Fine halo of pale pink head. Softly sour, black grape. Cherry stone woodiness. Not massively complex, but very juicy, and inviting. Taste is lightly acetic. Not far off bone dry, apart from a hint of sweetness on the lips. Very refreshing, easy drinking, and clean. Lovely balance of flavours. The barrel ageing comes through right at the end. Could drink this all day.
