2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Smells a touch metallic with some sweet sugar, caramel, and fruits. There’s a bit of a perfume aroma to it, maybe some oak, and a touch of vinegar. The flavor exhibits more metal character than the nose, which is unpleasant. Some sweet fruit and sugar notes, a tannic wood quality, and a light tartness. There are some decent flavors/aromas, but the metal is very off-putting.

thx to tderoeck for the bottle who got it from Manuele, the owner of “Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà” in Rome // 2011 Vintage // 75 cl. bottle split mainly between tderoeck, Martinus & me during the Italian Beer Festival @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // possibly the second batch of this so far // candy-tastic amber ruby, not an easy to describe colour but maybe candy-like?, head is only small bubbles on the side // (s) first thought prunes, followed very quickly by candy, very fruity prunes, mixed with quite a bit of gelatine base candy, touch sweet spices, no sour on the nose, damn, that is a nice smell // fruity prunes, lots of candy blended in, light, nicely balanced, green apple acid undercurrent riding along, not really sour instead green apple skins acidity, lots of candy & real berries // smooth, substantial slick body, not much carb. // nice, nice // thx for this one

Bottle pour with a golden orange color and thin/medium white head. Nice fruity sour nose with some funkiness. Taste was red berry fruits with a medium smooth sourness with some vinous hints. Not much to really speak of in carbonation but easy enough to drink. Really enjoyed this and cant wait to try some more from this brewery. Well done brew.
