750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop)
Slightly vegetal, artichokey, dusty and nutty - chestnutty, hint of mint spearmint, but dust too dominant. Gentle carbonation, a bit watery. Yup, chalky mint. Simple red ale body, very little sourness. Very disappointing. More herbal and again minty later. Does cover the 8% well, but that’s about as positive as I can be.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL bottle from ClarkVV. Pours crisp and clean dark nut (hazel) brown with ruby highlights as you turn it in the light and a few tiny tightly packed bubbles clinging to the glass. A light brown foamy head sits atop the sour goodness and exhibits a creamy tiny bubbled lined lacing that lazily falls back to its perch on the brew. Lightly musty aged oak shortly greets your nose but is quickly replaced by tart cherry/berry malted aromas with faint caramel notes. As soon as the tart acidic sour cherry mouthful hits your tongue, the saliva glands kick into high gear. Nice tartness that is enough to overpower the alcohol content which remains unnoticeable throughout the bottle. The flavor ends moderately acidic with musty aged oak notes and of course, tart cherry. Medium bodied, almost full bodied, palate with an excellent balanced mouthfeel that is somewhat dry except for the saliva kicked up because of the tartness. Excellent brew to accompany an acidic Italian dish, to replace the traditional red wine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (Got it via trade with Sliffy. Thanks a million) Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Earthy, light sour vinegarlike aroma. A bit like a gueuze, but definately not as sharp and clean. Flavour has chocolate, earthnotes and fruitnotes. Very complex and challenging. Still a bit bland compared to other speciments of the style like Duchess and Rodenback. Medium bodied. Has a nice sweetish sourness in the end. Very nice and refreshing brew, that I think lack a bit in powerness.
