3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep garnet brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is acidic, woody, toasty, caramel and old hay, then a light earthy funk, fruity and tart vinous notes. Flavor is toast, wood, tart floral notes, sort of like rose hips, sour plum, a hint of turbinado sugar, a little booziness, tart vinous notes and finishing with some acidic, fruity vinous notes, an interesting minerality old hay and a little earthy funk. Medium body, slick, somewhat boozy feel and light, spritzy and blanketing carbonation. Really good stuff overall, it could use a little more oomph in the flavor department to push past the booziness a little, but it is interesting and pleasantly warming as it is. The mouthfeel is a little strange, but somehow fits the beer well, almost like some strange cocktail made with things that won’t keep the carbonation long.

Aroma is Belgian yeast, sweet fruit, somewhat sour. Appearance is red brown, off white head. Taste is subtle, a crisp fruitiness, blueberry maybe, only somewhat sour. Mouthfeel is not carbonated enough, but still does the job. Overall, pretty tasty.

Dark brown with small light brwon head. Easy to drink. Fruity, cherry, tastes a bit like champagne wine. Nice aroma, herbal notes, woody aftertaste, sparkling in the mouth. But i was expecting better. Maybe i did not let it get old enough.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Diep, vol aroma. Rood fruit, krieken, pruimen, rozijntjes, beetje eik. Warme, volle fruitige smaak met klein zuurtje. Heerlijk lange afdronk. Dit bier kan je heel lang bewaren en ontwikkelt zich verder. Bier met nog een grote smaakevolutie. Binnenkort maar paar flesjes wegleggen. Superlekker genietersbier !!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very light sour smell, closer to cider than to an ale. Then you taste a little bit thick but smooth and easy going fruits, and a little carbonization, a little bit vanilla, more apples, after a while more and more berries. For me this is closer to a champagne than an ale, it is a very nice complex brew and if you can stand the sourness, the taste will be very rewarding!
