3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle (Belgo Bar, Stockholm)
Rich reddy brown, healthy head. Sweet and sour - fruity woody aroma. Sweet fruity taste - some toffee, and pleasant crisp sharpness - acidity quite noticable, but not harsh. Very easy drinker, no alcohol in it at all. Crisp.

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.
