4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep ruby brown with a big light tan head and nice lacing. Wonderful aroma of red currants and cherries, funk, vinegar, candy/caramel, hints of darker malts and chocolate. Nicely balanced taste: medium sourness upfront with light sweetness lingering behind, hints of crispy bitterness on finish. Light to medium body, high carbonation, nice mellow alcoholic warmth on finish, some stickiness. Excellent!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75 l bottle with a champagne cork from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is dark brown. Aroma has raisins and other dried fruits. Caramel and liquorice or something... and sourness in your throat. Very complex. This was blend 2016 and I probably drank it too young.

Decent biere rouge, but certainly not with the complexity od others within the style. Fairly easy to drink and enjoyable though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, berries and red fruit.
Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.
Medium sweet and slightly dry and sour with malts, caramel, berries and red fruit.
This beer is intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Too malty and sweet, could have benefitted from more complexity. Like the addition of some real berries and red fruit, or a red wine barrel-aging.
