4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hehe. Not everybody would like this... But at least for me who work with wine, this is a great brew. Some of the clesest you’ll come Lambic... Dark amber, slightly hazy. Aroma of light brown malt, animalic notes, red berries an vinegar. Nice wild yeast aromas, maybe a touch of bretts... Fine champagne’ish mousse with a bright intense, but not long lasting head (beet sugar’ish). Acidic entry on the palate, medium body, very dry vinous character. Then a slight malty taste with hints of sour strawberries. Aromas sit for a little while, but with a long acidic finish. Hints of mint in the after taste. Almost closer to a brut nature sparkling wine than "a beer". Most interesting... I love it, but definately an aquired taste.

Courtesy of bierkoning, thanks Edo!
Dark brown color, small vanishing tan head, looks like Coca Cola. Rubber, plums, raisins, vinegar and soya sauce in the nose. Watery palate. Light caramelly, dark fruity flavor with funky earthy notes. I suppose some spices too. Special, but not very likeable brew.

Bottle from Bitter Virtue. Brown. Toffee and autumn
fruits. Sweet but not especially thick or heavy. Has a fruity tartness in
the finish which helped this remain drinkable but wasnt particularly
