fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Beers Of Europe, King’s Lynn; vintage 2010, batch PBBE02-0111
Cloudy brown color; almost no head. Aroma of plastic, sweet caramel, fruits, flesh, nice grape. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is quite dry, and there is a very nice presence from the red wine, dynamic; may it have a very light final astringency.
Very good.

Bottle shared by Frank, thanks! Pours a clear a hazy purple with a white head that dissipates completely and quickly. Aroma has a good amount of grapes that are somewhat sour but a hint of sweetness. Flavor has a good amount of sour grapes that mellow into a bit of a sweet red grape note.

poured from 375 into a tulip. Pours a dark red color with a small head. Good dark red fruit aromas with some tart aromas of leather, dark red cherries and some funk. real nice medium body with a good tartness to it. Not overly tart though with good flavors of funk, leather, and dark red fruits. An extremely good sour styled beer. Not cheap, but still a real good beer.

Cloudy amber beer. No head. Light sour nose. Crisp light palate. Pleasantly lightly sour with a little tangy grape tartness. A little lactose sweetness in there as well. Finishes crisp. A sweetish winey sort of beer and unlike anything I’ve had before. Crisp, tart and sweet and unusual. Could drink loads of this!

On tap at Moeder Lambic. Light ruby body with medium head. Nose is sour and fruity. Also very sour in the taste. Not my thing. But done well nonetheless. Stays plenty sour well into the sour end.

Draft @ Moeder Lambic Italian Beer Festival ’12. Acajou assez foncée opaque, col pétillant sur un fond rosé foncé. Arôme de fruits, raisins bien présent avec ce léger bouquet vinaigre. En bouche, un bel effort de LoverBeer pour une fermentation spontanée, la bière comme en fût l’avis à table rappelle pas mal une Cantillon Gambrinus avec une petite finition en manque. On note sur le palais ce profile boisé et une belle aigreur vinaigrée qui vient s’y ajouter, le tout assure à donner un beau profile fruité de raisins.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // Italian Beer Festival // apparently wild fermented in good Italian wine barrels with local wine grapes // always up for more wild fermentation beers // light touch darker raspberry, mine had a little raspberry coloured head in the beginning but only very briefly, as a rule this doesn’t seem to have any head at all // smell is a touch muted, touch old cellar raspberries, berries, touch dirty water, fruity but muted, touch dusty, old & tart // taste is muddled in front, no clarity, lightly rotting raspberries, stale water, old cellar, touch fruitiness, messy wine grapes, touch fruity upfront but also muddled, going into touch more unwanted wild stuff than what is common, finish carries a zingy vinegar kind in there & very wine-rich, more than plain vinous, in the back this really starts resembling wine // body thickness is good for its kind, little carb // not bad but still feels a bit muted and accidental, not fully integrated, could definitely improve quite a bit with experience, considering the youth of the brewery, this is definitely solid // I got some info about this beer, apparently the “wild fermenation” here is not the same as we known in Belgium but is done by adding the grapes to the worth & the grapes cause the wild fermentation, which is quite an interesting idea and process
