3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle, from Dutch’s. 2013 vintage. Mostly hazy red amber orange color. Ring of off-white head. Really cool fruity nose... Pear, cranberry, cherry, floral aromas (rose petal). Interesting taste, bit of cleaner in there, mild sour, moderate sweet, touch minty and herbal. Light citrus. Mild bitterness. Strange at first, but it grows on me quite a bit. Definitely tastes like there’s some floral adjuncts in here, and it works well. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, light carbonation, mild slick finish. Overall, a tasty, interesting complex floral (mildly sour) sour ale. Grows on me more and more as I go.

Plum and sour aroma. Taste is lactic sour and plum with woody oakyness as well. Not sweet. Fruit sugars fermented out. Sour is maybe 3 or 4 of 10. Really complex and nice beer, just would like more body and sour to this one.

On tap at Ma Che Siete. Lover beer Beer brugna 6.2% a sour brown aged in oak with plums. A pinkish brown with a nice head of foam and a tart fruity aroma. The taste is a bracing tangy plum, tart before you get the oak barrel character in the finish. Nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a rusty red murky colour with a 2 finger head of foam.
I get semi sweet plums with a rather massive nose of Brett. Some cider like qualities here to with a dose of vanilla.
The taste is more dominated by Brett than perhaps I like but the fruitiness is quite tasty and the finish is pretty darned dry. Malt wise, I get earthy notes, pretty much all I can pull out.
Medium body and carbonation. Nice mouth feel.
The Brett wears on my palate after a few sips but I’d hardly say this isn’t a very good beer, because it is.
