3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Pint Defiance. Clear, reddish-brown pour with a short white head leaving spotty lace. Nose has all the notes I love in a wild ale: tart fruits, grapes and some cured meat. Medium body with light, fine carbonation. Grapes, lemon, cherry and some wood. Finish is more balanced, with some umami flavors creeping in and Brett showing up as butterscotch. I now see where LaFolie was influenced by a Rodenbach brewer (they blend their sours in a similar fashion). Not as good as a full-on Oude Bruin, but still very sippable.

Bottle at home with the wife. Pours a reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart dark fruits, cherry, wood, vinegar, yeast, hint of caramel, the tart/sour character is nice, easy drinking sour.

Nice dark brown/amber beer with a fine head. Definitely didn’t expect the sour and sweetness. But after recovering from the shock it turned out to be an amazing fruity beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1754 - 2015.06.24 - Bottle at 7degrees Beer School. Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is berries, wild cherries, sour plum tartness - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart cherry, sweetness from the barrel component, some woody oak components, and a leathery bitter funk note - lovely sour/bruin.

A nice clear and almost amber color, with a fine thick tan head. Good lacing. Looks really inviting. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a fine smooth carbonation. A very fine balance between sweetness , acidity and sourness. Vinegar, fruity, toffee and vinous. An unusual mellow and balanced sour ale.

ricco odore di ciliegio predomina . In bocca č grande , e il sapore ancora migliore . Molto ben equilibrato e per fortuna non troppo dolce , con un finale abbastanza pulito . Questo č facilmente il meglio delle birre acide che ho provato . Il pub ha questo alla spina , ma ho anche trovato un paio di bottiglie lŕ da portare a casa per un’ulteriore valutazione
