Bottle to glass. Pours a murky amber copper light brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is dry, oak, sour cherry, quite tart. Flavor is surprisingly mild, smooth, not very tart, light oak. Smooth and silky body with more lingering sweetness than tartness. Tasty, but I’m surprised at the lack of tartness in the flavor.

Tap, pours an auburn brown with little off white fizz. Earthy sweet sour aroma, very pleasant. The flavor follows with a nice dark amber Belgian lightly sweet very smooth and with a great addition of sour fruitiness and light tart and subtle oak. More oak and grain in the finish which is drying, very enjoyable and probably my favorite of the more regular find able holly pumpkin beers.

Refreshing spices, like most Unibroues strive to be, but without their negative yeast. Reminds of a saison.Rum whiff. Well carbonated. All taste. Lots of different malts. I must try all from this brewery. Licorice, corriander, rum, bourbon, fennel, fruit

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear dark reddish amber with a dotted rim head, strips of lace. Taste is straight red sour ale - a light malt that is mostly sour; a little sweet wafts in and out through the lingering finish. A really solid example of the style. Beers like this remind me of Springtime in France. Full of vigor and life.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle. Served in a Prairie Teku glass, the beer pours a dark amber color with about a half inch off-white head. The head didn’t stay around for too long, but there’s a good amount of lacing. I liked the aroma, the brew smells like tart cherries, caramel, green grapes, oak and vinegar. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some berries, plum and vanilla that I notice. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and has a good amount of carbonation. Surprisingly this is the first time I’ve tried this. I’ve seen it around for a long time, but for whatever reason I never picked up a bottle until recently. It’s definitely worth trying, I thought it was good. $7.99 a bottle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. hazy thick dark amber body. aroma: light malty, citrus lemon, grape, white wine, cask wood, vinegar. if: light sweet moderate acidic acetic. ff: light sweet moderate acidic very light bitter acetic vinegar; long duration. palate: light medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, moderate astringent finish. Azedume de limão e vinagre permeado por dulçor maltado. Amargor residual bem leve no final, lembrando casca de limão e também cinzas (maior na primeira taça e menor na segunda), assim como na Cantillon Bio. Complexidade aumenta na segunda metade da primeira taça, com acidez lembrando taninos de tinto seco e azedume diminuindo. Amadeirado bem presente no paladar. Cerveja refinada, mas não recomendada para leigos/iniciantes. Bochechada, lembra groselha ao ganhar temperatura. Padrão belga. Toques picantes no último quarto da cerveja, aumentando mais ainda sua complexidade. 210 s
