3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Faintly cream-pinkish coloured head, medium, over red/orange tinted amber beer. Woody, cocoa powder to (British) chocolate, faintly vinous, some dried fruit. Lightly sourish, ever so slightly astringent, faintly fruity beer - can’t determine which fruit even when I know. But overall very demure - too demure. Light body, well-carbonated, little aftertaste and nothing new. Not bad - but I’d expected a LOT more fireworks from Valteri.

The wine like notes and lemony funk override any foo foo fruity aspects. Dark amber pour, almost berry like color. Sour without the vinegar, as previously stated. Strawberry and red grapes. Pretty nice brew though not a standout in one of my favorite styles."

Bottle, Hazy red/brown, big off white head. Huge strawberry and blackberry nose, bit of citrus, some light funk, bit of mustiness and light spice on the nose.Taste is fruit all the way, strawberry, rhubarb and bit plum notes. Light citric funk, slight musty sourness, pepper, more red berry. Great fruit sweetness coupled with the citric musty tang. Nowhere near 8%. Really clean and refreshing, a biting quench of thirst. Great stuff.

Sandy peach brown. Aroma is mild sour. Taste is sour, vinegar. Palate is nice sour finish. Overall, not overly grapey but nice oak malt sour combo.

Pours brownred , good white foam
Smell is sweet , raspberries .
Taste is raspberries ( thumbs up !) with a cardboard aftertaste ( hide those tumbs !) very weird beer . Shame for the aftertaste , cause the first taste is great !

Bottle from an Italian PUB’R lover. Pours turbid ruby copper with fizzy off-pink head. Nose is earthy lactic funk, yeast, fruit. Tastes fruity, with cherry, lactose, funky yeasty malt, and a complex finish. Yet another great sour from this brewer, and it ends more tart than it starts.
