4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky unfiltered ruby brown with wee bubble trim head. Dip Dab sherbert juicy nose. Really smooth well disguised oxidation before a big upturn unleashing a fresh sour waterfall with touches of cherry. The cognac softness the tartness into a very very quenching finish. So smooth. If you stuck a straw in the bottle and let a non-beer/sour fiend have a sook you’d probably get interesting but very favourable reactions. Balanced at every turn.

Bottle @ ZZT VII, thx to everyone for sharing their bottles. Typical flemish sour aroma, but not really complex enough. Bit thin on the flavor. Maybe on the fresh side.

Bottle shared by Caesar, hazy reddish color, virtually no head. Smell and taste sourish, unripe fruits. For me it’s a bit I too I sour, but it’s a nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle, 2012, Batch #15, Bottle #813. Pours almost opaque reddish brown with a thick, foamy, off-white head. Aroma is tart, bright, woody cherries with noticeable funkiness. Taste is tart cherry skins, oak, wood and tannins and is earthy, citric, vinous and funky. Bright and tart on the palate, fairly sour, really nice carbonation. Great finish. Perfectly balanced; every aspect of this beer is standout. Just terrific.
