On tap at Tap and Mallet. Mmm - did not realize this was a red when ordering. Was delighted. Brown, hazy, nice lacing. This perfectly towed the line between sweet and sour, alternating. So fruity, so complex, so good.

Draught at OEC SourFest, 8/15/15.
Clear maroon-auburn with a moderate amount of off-white head showing moderate to low retention.
Straightforward acetic acid in the nose is also joined by very light caramel sweetness and a touch of vanilla. Lots of fruitiness emerges with warming, as well as some oily/leathery oakiness. Sweetness begins to get problematic, though. No alcohol noted.
The flavor has an initial lactic and acetic mix that is enjoyable, but quickly succumbs to a cheap, adjunct-like waxy flavor from some sugar addition, possibly? It’s very pervasive and is joined by too much simple sweetness, vanilla and monotonous vinegar. Watery/loose texture with too much thinning. Not good at all, as per usual from Strubbe. Kinda surprised at the ratings for this one....

On tap in Delirium Village in Brussels. Dark, cloudy. Intense fruity aroma and taste, however, makes it a bit to smell and taste as medicine.

Amber with medium beige head. Sour fruity aroma. Sour fruity (cherries) taste, bit touch is sweetness and just some dusty bitterness. Some fruitiness in the aftertaste.

Kolejne piwo od Hopestera! I kolejne niezapomniane doznania! Ciemnoczerwony kolor, z niewielką pianą o różowym zabarwieniu. Aromat kwaśnych owoców, najbardziej chyba wiśni i porzeczek. W smaku nieco owocowej słodyczy, potem kwaśność i nieco winnej wytrawności. Trudno opisać złożoność smaku, jaki to piwo oferuje... Bardzo delikatnie wysycone. Trzeba wypić, żeby zrozumieć ;)

Caoba, dos dedos de espuma ligeramente tintada. Aroma a mi no tinto, ligeramente agrio. Notas de caramelo. en boca, carbonatación notable y cuerpo flojo. El sabor mantiene lo que anticipaba en el aroma con una base malteada dulce y un tono agrio general, tolerable. Para amantes del estilo, que no es mi caso. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
