Grifo. Copa de Vino. Saboreada en agt´12. Color rosa oscuro y apariencia velada. Espuma rosácea. Corona copiosa, algodonosa y persistente. Aromas de maltas tostadas, azúcares, y bayas frescas agrio/ácidas. Gentil malteado de entrada borrado por un contundente toque ácido. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación moderada-baja. Textura oleosa. Notas tártaricas de pera y manzana ácidas en el intermedio. Final y retrogusto afrutado con leve azúcar. Vale la pena disfrutarla.
On-tap. Wine glass. Enjoyed on agt´12. Dark pink color, chill haze appearance. Pinky froth creates a copious, rocky & lasting crown. Aromas of toasted malts, molasses & fresh acidic/sour berries. Gentle malty upfront overwhelmed by strong acidic touch. Light body. Moderate to low carbonation. Oily texture. Tartaric/acidic apples & pears in the middle. Low sugary & fruity finish lingers into the aftertaste. Worth to try !!

Nose has a heavy raspberry presence. Flavor is hurt by heavy carbonation. Too much raspberry must. Good acid level. Admirable effort.

12 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is heavily sweet, and fruity with hints of raspberry. There is also a little acetic and lightly lactic funk present, too. Light cheesiness. Very nicely aromatic. The body is a mostly opaque garnet-amber color with a small, light pink head, which is pretty frail. Starts a bit tart, sharp, and acidic, but not overly so. Some raspberries come through in the middle, with more light acidity and sweetness. Finishes with a bit of a wheat-like chewiness present. Nice, fine bubbly carbonation present here. I think this beer came out pretty well, but it just seems to lack the added layers of complexity that the guys in Belgium seem to have. Still a solid beer.
