3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from somewhere I can’t remember. Pours tiny hazy reddish brown with a rather big frothy and creamy offwhite head that leaves some lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sour and malty with sweet dark bread, cereal, lemon juice, grape juice, moist wood, hay, barnyard, low quality red wine, dry soil, lemon zest and hints of oatmeal. Taste is sour and malty with dark bread, toasted cereal, red wine vinegar, hay, moist wood, grape juice, unflavoured yoghurt, oatmeal and hints of acetone and rotten lemons. Mouthfeel is sharp, dry, slightly tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with bread, red wine vinegar, lime juice, hay, dry soil, moist wood, grape juice, and cereal. Pretty so-so...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 cl. bottle @ home. .Procured from Willems. BBF 03/2015. Dark brown, light Bordeaux red with basically no head. Nose has light vinegar, sour red malts, touch dark cherries, light oak, touch tart & med. quality chocolate, man I had very low expectations about this one but this is actually sour, nice. Taste is light chocolate, fain roast & coffee grounds, ligt vinegar, old touch tart cherry chocolates, lightly tart, malts, chocolate,… Touch oily, bit fizzy, slight lighter body. Expected nothing but this is not bad, sweet & sour balance as the style should have traditionally. Not overly impressive but quite enjoyable never the less.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl bottle from ABS Drinks. Tangy aroma, chocolate, cherries, green apple, a bit of vinegar. Relatively tame. Dark brown with orange tints and a high, fine head. Nicely tangy flavor, chocolate, yogurt, orange, lactic acid, a touch of vinegar. Relatively sweet and malty for the style, but not in a cheap way. Not all that exciting, but nice drinking. Some roasted chocolate and tangy sourness in the finish. Light, smooth body, soft carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma has funky sour things going up my nose. Maybe I am crazy but I smell an acidic stone ground mustard thing going on. Freaky impresive aroma. Some wood and berries. Nice complex beer. The only knock is it is too sweet but the other notes push back on the sweetness. Thin and prickly. Basalmic vinegar. I really enjoyed it.
