3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The 750ML bottle poured a beautiful, clear, reddish amber beverage with a moderately sized frothy off-white head that was fully lasting, turning creamy as it matured and it left wonderful lacing on the glass. The aroma was pungent with sour and fruity aromas mingling to produce an almost brandy-like character. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a slightly watery texture. The flavor was quite tart and sour at the start. It does mellow quickly as it ages on the palate but still retains just a hint of sourness through the medium-long finish.

Earthy, the sour mixes well with the body of this beer. So easy to drink, finishes dry with a strong dark fruit prescense that balances it out so well. A great brew whos quality shines through.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 330cl bottle into a tulip. This sour ale poured a dark brown color with a big light grayish tan head that slowly faded. The aroma was that of sour cherries. The flavor was sweet and sour dark fruit with some hints of oak. The mouthfeel was light-bodied with heavy carbonation. Almost champagne like. Very refreshing and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Emerges cherry-brown with absent head. Dark wood and astringent sourness on the nose. Tastes of oak, mild Pinot Grigio. vinegar, and hints of Granny Smith apple. Doesn’t hit home like the Grand Cru does.

fruit and wood, tastes almost like a cross between a cider and a wine, not bad but not quite a beer
