Tap at BrewDog Birmingham. I love spontaneity. Dark appearance, especially sitting outside in the dark, red and a delicious sour kick. Dave loved it, kept asking for a sip, Simon said it tasted like vinegar. Amateur. See, you asked for a description and now you get three for the price of one. Now that my friends is cracking value.

Raisins et cerises dans un crescendo de surette remué dans un corps intéressant. Le mélange des sucres fruités et de la finale acidulée donne l’impression d’oursons sures en jujubes.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottiglia del 2011, Color barbabietola impenetrabile, quasi torbida, fragole e lamponi al naso, acidità ben bilanciata , schiuma assente, carbonazione moderata, presenti fastidiosi sedimenti sul fondo. A mio parere il taglio di Barbera è un po’ troppo presente,ma credo sia voluto. In linea su massima una buona sour Ale ma non incontra il mio palato al 100%

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: The body is a murky brown with a reddish tinge, there is almost no head, just a hint of carbonation.
Aroma: The aroma is mild with sweet cherries and raspberries balancing out a slightly tart and vinegar presence:
Taste: The flavor is very mild and sweet upfront with blueberries and grapes that slides into a dry leather funk that finishes mildly sour with a touch of vinegar.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with just a touch of vinegar.
Overall: This is a very interesting beer and I very much enjoy it despite the ratings. The appearance is awful and the aroma is weak, but this is an enjoyable and complex beer that is worth trying.

DON’T BE FOOLED. THIS IS A GLORIFIED SPARKLING WINE/WINE COOLER. YUCK. No head. Way too much carbonation. It’s a crime to call this a beer.
