Bouteille de 375ml enrobée d’un papier bible et sortie des boules à mites du dépanneur Grand Duc. Bues à quelques reprises au cours des dernières années en fûts et en bouteilles. Le liquide de cette bière est brune-rouge, la mousse est de couleur blanche-cassée. Le nez est très agréable avec des arômes de framboise. Le coté aigre est perceptible au nez. La bouche est tout aussi agréable avec des saveurs prononcées de framboise, la base de brune des Flandres est bien présente en bouche. Les couches de saveurs se superposent entre les framboises et la Liefmans Oud Bruin. Très bonne bière.

pushkinwow (1956) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2011
Magnum, curtesy of Ian, from 2000. Pours a reddish brown, not much head, raspberry, sugar and sour/vinegar aroma. Tastes quite good - sweetness completely mellowed, tartness from the vinegar, full-bodied on the palate but somewhat thin on the finish. Can’t say what I was really expecting but this definitely improved with age...now just need to find some bottles and let them sit for a decade :)

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2011
(37,5 cl, bb 2017) Le liquide a une robe brune rougeâtre qui est traversée par d’énormes sédiments. Un très fin col mousseux apparaît au contour du verre. Au nez, les framboises sont mûres, juteuses, sucrées comme une bonne confiture maison. Les saveurs sont aussi dominées par la douceur du petit fruit rouge et permettent en finale une touche aigrelette. En bouche, le liquide a une rondeur surprenante avec son effervescence engourdie et sa texture collante. La finale est abrupte, davantage portée vers les notes douces que les notes surettes. Pas mauvais du tout.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with only a rim of off-white head - quite flat when opened. The aroma has strong notes of raspberries as well as medium notes of almonds. The flavor is somewhat sweet with a light acidic edge on which is quite strong notes of raspberries as well as lighter notes of wood and almonds, leading to a dry, woody, and slightly tart finish. The body is light.

37.5 cl bottle shared with BigMomma. Dark reddish brown, small off white head. Giant yeast-berg floaters everywhere. Aroma is dirty, earthy, dusty, and fruity. Taste has a citrus start, a fruit middle and a sweet n sour finish. Nice character and complexity. Forgive the chunks.
