4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rated 3/20/13. 750ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a murky brown color. The head is a one finger light mocha shade that features a beautiful creaminess to it. Lacing is great for the style.
S: A lot going on in this one, and a lot going on that I love, as well. Huge sourness (mainly lactic) is augmented brilliantly by tart cherries. Underneath that are layers of oak and cream. It’s complex enough, and immensely enjoyable.
T: The first note on the palate is a wave of pleasant, well-restrained sourness. Then, fantastic cherry notes overtake the midtaste before a finish that strikes a balance between cream-like sweetness and oaky dryness. It’s not the sourness or the fruitiness that lures me into this one; it’s the sophisticated cohesion between all the different elements which does so.
M: Crisp and light, not to mention refreshing. Mellow dryness and carbonation help it go down with incredible ease.
O: Wow, this kicks ass. On the right kind of day (let’s say perfectly sunny, 80F, sitting on a patio) I’d have no trouble crushing multiple 750ml bottles of this left and right. Beautiful stuff, this one.

Tap and or bottle on many occasions...never got around to ticking her. Pours a low carbonated red purple color with small head. Notes of fruit syrup, cherry, vanilla oak, and sugar. I have always preferred New Glarus fruit juices to these folks

Belgium at it’s finest but not excellent. It’s merely just plain excellence. But grab it if you can.

First sour I ever had and still one of my favourites. Love the balance of fruit with slight vinegar bite, just right.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep magohany brown red color with quickly disapearing brown foam. Aromas tart of oak, wet wood, cherries with red wine undertones and juniper. Palate, medium body with smooth and tslick texture leaving fruity soft finish. Taste is tart and sour of wood, juniper and sour cherries then developing into more soft and pleasant ripe cherry flavours folowed by plum. Overall, nice beer, initialy bit too tart but once flavours develops tastes really nice. Do recomend.

This tastes rather like a Belgian naturally fermented beer, it is dark and fruity with a sour taste as per lambic beers. It’s rather nice.

Geruch nach Beeren, Kirschen und Rotwein. Geschmack säuerlich und ein bisschen in die Richtung von Glühwein. Angesehen von der Beeren und Kirschen findet man auch Zimt und Muskatnuss. Etwas kratzig im Abgang.
