3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely red-amber beer which can be compared a little to gueze - due to its spontaneous fermentation - but a little more powerfull. This one is 2/3 young and 1/3 aged ( for 24 months) in large oak barrels called "foeders"; but make sure you try the Rodenbach grand cru which had 2/3 aged and 1/3 young; this one really has the complexity of a good wine!

Piwo brązowe, mętne. Piany niemal brak. W aromacie kwaśne, trochę owocowe wino. W smaku łagodnie, ciekawie wyważone między kwaśnością i słodyczą. Średnia pełnia i wysycenie. Rześkie.

Brown hazy beer, with a small brownish head. Aroma is sour, vinous, oak wood, acetic. Taste is nicely sweet, perfectly balanced by the lactic/acetic notes. Medium body, sour finish lasting long in the mouth. Extremely refreshing, a great beer!

Bottle. Nose is balsamic vinegar, raspberry hint of leather. Taste is balsamic, raspberry, slight sherry, wine, berry, only lightly sour. Mouth feel is thin. I’ve not had this beer in years always choosing the grand cru and in comparison it feels underpowered and a little bland. Drinking it I was always aware of what it was not rather than what it was.

BB 26.10.2017. Poured a translucent dark toffee-brown colour with a one-finger light tan dense foam head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma of sweet berry fruits, hints of cherry and wine-like hints; overall has a malted caramel sweetness with hints of sourness. Taste is initially of slightly sweet berries followed by a slight sourness; not overly sour or acidic/tart. Light body, a bit thinner than I was expecting. Clean, soft and slightly dry with a short-lived nice sweet fruits plus a slight sourness on the finish. Very refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, Red/brown color with a slight white head. Aroma of vinegar, slight fruit sweetness. Taste is watered balsamic vinegar with earthy hints. Overall it is feels watered down and lacks some punch and flavour other than balsamic vinegar.
