SlovakSniper (4038) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2012
Une bouteille partagée avec rodenbach99. Une version 2010 qui doit être bue, selon la maison, avant 2014. Une fois versé, le liquide présente une robe rouge qui n’est pas limpide. Au nez, des effluves de fruits rouges comme la cerise et des raisins qui se posent sur des fondements boisés très agréables et légèrement épicés. Sur les papilles, des saveurs fruitées assez vibrantes qui rencontrent des notes boisées transpirantes. Rien de bien agressif pour la langue. Un amalgame de notes aigres et de notes douces. En bouche, une sensation plaisante procurée par un liquide modérément dense qui se fait traverser par des bulles vivantes. En finale, des notes de raisins qui viennent serrer les tissus de ma langue avec une certaine vigueur. Bref, un liquide que j’ai beaucoup aimé. Extrêmement facile à boire.

rodenbach99 (3639) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
Version 2010 en bouteille partagée avec Patrick. Capsule de métal avec du plastique à l’intérieur. Cette bouteille est supposée bonne ad 2010. Le liquide est rouge, teint par les raisins barbera, elle ne mousse pas. Le nez est ultra fruité, agréable, suret, un peu boisé, des cerises et des raisins fermentés. En bouche le liquide est sec, drôle de tautologie, un liquide sec. L’atténuation est parfaite. Des fruits avec une touche de funk. Du meilleur comme du pire de cette brasserie ici on frôle le meilleur. 7+/10

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2012
(From notes 3 Oct, 2012) Bottle. White foam, color is cherry red. Aroma is that of candy cherry (very strong). Tastes sour, but not acidic like other spontaneously fermented beers I have tried. Feels a bit watery, quite light. Overall an interesting beer where the aroma is misleading, as it resembles artificial cherry essence (in a negative way).

TEKUBEAT (20) - ITALY - SEP 2, 2012
La regina delle sours italiane strizza l’occhio al vino e stupisce per complessità. Con un plus, la bevibilità, che ormai sta diventando merce rara anche in questo tipo di birre.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 On tap at Borefts 2011. Unique, a plum lambic. Deep ruby colour and very pleasant aroma of the deep darkfruits. Medium mouthfeel, loads of dark fruit (especially the prune and grape) and a nice lingering acidic aftertaste.

Lukaduke (2737) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pours a deep red purple grape color with no visible head... aromas are grape, dark fruit, oak and a little bit of dusty earth. On the palate there is a ton of fruit... cranberry tartness, grape sweetness, dark plum, touch of cider... it like a fruit basket in a glass but not overly sweet. Nice tartness and a lingering earthy tea like quality make this a real treat !

Scopey (9768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from GBBF. It pours cloudy deep purple, with no head. The nose is juicy red grape, dark fruit, yoghurt, light farmyard and wood. The taste is red grape, lip-smacking tartness, cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant, wood, lemon and light acidity, with a smooth finish. Medium body, low carbonation and well balanced. Delicious, smooth and highly drinkable stuff.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear reddish color ale with a medium size off-white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of oak and tart notes is very interesting with subtle acidic notes. Taste is a nice mix between loads of oak which brings out cherry tart notes with a light acidic finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Another great sour from this brewery though I must admit that there is quite a few resemblances between their Flanders Red.
