4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rosey rusty brown color with a two finger fizzy head that disappears quickly... but lots of rising bubbles keep the ring alive and bubbling like a volcano in the center LOTS of bottom risers here ! This beer even sounds good with fizzy white noise calling you from the glass. Aromas are earthy, tart, sweet with notes of strawberry, grape, cherry and plum.... tons of fruit. On the palate the fruit is more subdued than I would have thought it to be... great mouthfeel with great champagne like bubbles. Earthy notes of composte, autumn leaves, round malts, dark plum, wild brett and touches of tart cider.... alot of complex notes here... with a finish that taste like a moist forest floor at the turn of fall. Yum

Vineux avec un support surette en accord avec les sucres des malts. Des notes de cerises et de chêne composent le corps, la finale est plutôt discrète. Agréable avec une montagne de crabes des neiges.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours a deep ruby color with a big off-white head. Super-quickly vanishing foam, almost like a soda. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is vinegarish and fruity. Strawberries, red berries, balsamic vinegar and lemon zest. Taste is similar but more balanced on the the warming malty notes. Red grapes, red wine, vinegar, alcohol and oak. Quite warming and the alcohol is there. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, definitely interesting and tasty. Maybe a tad too high in ABV.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Hazy copper with hints of orange, big head that falls down and totally dissappears. Nice laces. Smells of ripe fruits, plums, apple and some funky brett. Some malt body, good sweetness, nice balanced off with sourness acids. Not as agressive as some of the other sours from Loverbeer. Totally this beer is very drinkable, and i may want to try this one again

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Amber colour with touch of red. Big, bubbly shiny off white head. Aroma is light raspberry, bit of creaminess, herbal. Taste has similar light fruitiness, bit of funkiness and a touch of sourness. It’s nice enough, but it’s nowhere near as nice as the Belgian equivalents. Too much booze and too little funk.

Sicuramente uno dei migliori assaggi della manifestazione: i prodotti di Loverbeer sono sempre all’insegna di grande complessità e classe. Certo che doverle bere solo alle fiere girano i cotiledoni
