3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle (Zly Casy, Prague). Clear brown color. Small size, white head, stays as a ring. Sour, sweet, raspberry, vinegar, yeasty, caramel, balsamic vinegar in aroma. Sour, red currant, raspberries, balsamic vinegar in taste. Woody and acidic vinegar in aftertaste. I’ve said so many negative things, but this beer is actually quite drinkable. Sharp, but then again mellow. Quite drinkable.

Très étonnant surtout quand on connait le produit d’origine !
Très acide, quasiment une Rodenbach. Un nez très vinaigre, fond boisé de fut extrêmement perceptible, de belles notes raisineuses.
Une bouche très acide, assez noble, des jolies nous fruitées bien vieilles : pomme, cassis/groseille. On ressent énormément les fûts de chêne, c’est même ce qui domine.
Au final, un joli produit, assez étonnant de ce qu’on peut en espérer étant donné le style affiché.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a very cloudy and very dark chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a three finger, frothy beige head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Very good retention with streaks and spots if soapy lace left behind.
Earthy, slightly acetic aroma with a strong barrel character that somewhat overpowers the characteristics of the base beers. Prominent charred oak and very vinous with strong dark fruit sweetness followed by some bready yeast, peppery spice and chocolate malt. The red wine barrels really stand out with hints of damp oak, grape, currant, sour cherry, plum and other dark berries. The blend also gives off a slightly distracting and unpleasant acetone/chemical scent, hiding what is most pleasant about Aventinus. Underneath, there is some sweeter dark malt notes along with sourdough bread, banana and zesty clove but I wish that these elements were stronger in the nose.
Whoa, this beer is a huge acetone bomb! So much so that it almost completely overwhelms all of the other flavors. Harsh, solvent like and very tough to drink with lots of chemical flavor and vinegar. There’s some decent barrel flavor, mostly dry oak and sweet vinous fruit but the acetic acid is so overpowering, it kills off most of the pleasant flavors. Nothing about the base beers stand out except for some boozy sweetness and alcohol burn. I like that they are experimenting but this beer is pretty much an undrinkable mess.
