3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest 08. Harry gave us the chance to do a side by side tasting with the European sour. Woody sour nose. Nice sourness in mouth, really rather good and nice than the Euro mild. Not hugely sour, more tartness really. Pippy raspberry is rather attractive. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, golden-brown beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lightly vinegar-ish and lemony, with a faint touch of caramel maltyness. Dried fruit notes too. It’ rather tart on the palate, not as tart as expected though, with a pleasant carbonation level. Medium to full body. The flavor has a faint nutty, caramel touch, with lemon, a faint touch of vinegar and some funky notes. Long finish with lemon, caramel and nuts. Sort of disappoints this one, was expecting more sourness, at least judging from what I remember the European version to be. But it’s definitely not a bad beer anyway. 130815

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddish amber with a sweet sour aroma. Full bodied, malty and complex. In the style of Rodenbach, but with slightly less body. Might age well, worth a try.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reddish brown colour. Major oaky aroma, slight tart cherries. Bright, fruity, voluptuous. The flavour follows suit with lots of bright oakiness and deep cherry. Slightly creamy body. A mature, refined brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle, 2005 vintage) Pours a murky reddish-brown body with a spare white head. Nose of cherry and oak. Flavor of oak barrel, sour cherries, and earthiness with a dry finish. The oak over powers rather than complementing this flemish sour, thus weakening the flavor of the wild yeast and bacteria.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 Bottle, at Jimmy’s no. 43 during the Lovullo Sour Tasting Session. Pours a dark, red-brown with a slight, white film. Tart, sour aroma with mild fruit and wood. Flavor is extremely puckering and very sour. Plenty of Brett and lactic acids. Mild sweetness. Some booze, especially in the finish. Light woodiness throughout. Some licorice notes. Pretty nice.
