Onestissima sour ale un po’ abbagasciata simile alla Duchesse però un po’ più delicata e forse feminile. Buona!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.25 l bottle (vintage 2000) at Man in the Moon, Stockholm. Reddish brown color. Sweet vinous aroma with plum, strawberry, cherry, nuts and some acidity. Sweet slightly acidic flavor with plenty of cherry and strawberry as well as hint of licorice and nuts. This is pretty tasty but I would prefer this dryer.

Bottle @ KBF in Geel. Reddish brown beer. Aroma of cherries, red wine, a bit tart. Flavour is sweet-sour, cherries, a bit malts. Just a bit too sweet for me. Not much carbonation.

Bottle, Kris Wines, London . Poured a ruby tinged brownish colour with a small head. Sweet n’ sour, yeasty malty aroma. Reasonably sour and tart flavour with sweet elements of caramel and some fruit. Not too bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2nd rating of Belgian trip on 5/16/08.
Pours a very dark reddish brown color with a medium thick head that never goes away and just covers the sides of the glass. Aroma hits you strong with spoiled, starting to fester, dark cherries. It tickles the nostrils a bit and has some earth and soil dark malts to balance it out a bit. Taste is calmed down on the spoiled aspect but more like drippy dark cherries that are still edible. At the end of the flavor there is a seltzer feel with a slightly wild flavor. It finishes simple and refreshing with a hint of sweetness to bring it all together.
25cl bottle @ Le Bier Circus, QdC large snifter/tulip glass, dated bb 06/06/09.
