4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ CBC 2013. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is soured berries, compost, balsamic. Brett. The taste is lactic fink. Raspberry jam, fruit by the foot candy. Nice sweet/tart profile. The balance makes this pretty effortless. Not a hint of the menace you’d expect in a 10% sour. Overall, very good. The best thing Merciless / De Molen did at the festival.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap at de Molen. Pours hazy brown with a medium white head. Aroma is very sweet and fruity with strawberry, other red fruits, caramel and a slight tartness. Taste is actually quite sweet like some kind of strawberry syrup and has some caramel and sour notes as well. For me this lacks some balance, because it is quite sweet, but I can imagine it is really nice for people who are not so fond of sourness.

Draft @ De Molen. Aroma hints some sourness, wood, fruits. Flavour is sour but in a smooth way, followed by sweet fruits and some barrel. Nice.

Draft @ de Molen. Hazy, murky brown beer with a creamy, long lasting off white head. Aroma is of oak, cherry and some Brett. Flavor is medium sour with even touches of sweetness. Very well balanced between the sour and sweet touches. Very nice sour.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ De Molen. Hazy copper pour. Aroma of sweet malts, unfermented sugars and quite fruity. Flavor is a bit messy, sweet with some spices and funky. Strange combination of flavors.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at De Molen. Poured a hazy deep reddish amber with a frothy off white head. The aroma is rich and fruity. The flavour is packed with red berry fruit and alcohol. The alcohol provides the bitterness and there is some sourness on the palate from the fruit. A rather complex beer and the best I’ve tasted from "Merciless".
