4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Orangeish straw colored pour with a short lived white head. Tart, hay, and funk in the aroma with soft clove and raspberry. The flavor comes in layers. Tart, acidic and funky upfront. Then the wit layer rolls in with a nice, smooth and soft clove and banana and gentle spice. The raspberries kick in at the end with a fresh, tart note.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Bruery Sucre Tasting in the Bierboom. Complicated sour fruit ale with medium thick, egg-white, unstable and quickly thinning head; hazy golden colour with peachy hue. Aroma of gooseberry more than actual raspberry though a hint of white raspberry is certainly there, yoghurt, pineapple, sour cream, honey, dry white wine, subtle vanilla tannins, some stale sweat but fitting in very well. Very vividly fruity onset, lots of pineapple and gooseberry esters mixed with actual white raspberry, quite spritzy carbo at first, smooth body with honeyish, lightly bready malt sweetness and soft sourish ’wheatiness’, lactic tartness accompanying the whole and drying, sour cream hints, very fruity, drying lactic finish with a hint of warming alcohol and practically no hops. Sour ale of very high level, but I hadn’t expected anything less from this brewery.

tepid orange, no head. Tangerine and orange nose, balancing acid, lightly paper. Front palate is metallic acid, jowls tingling. So much acid here I can’t tell if there are any flaws.. WHAT?! Tangerine is dominant through the finish.

Pretty nice stuff. Citrus and some apricot. Some guava as well. One of the better Bruery beers I’ve had due to focus on balance here, above all. Hazy orange pour. Tangy finish. Bottle at tasting.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by arminjewell). Looks good; a hazy golden orange with white head. Smells and tastes good too; semi-sweet and funky with mild notes of raspberries and wheat along soft notes of white grapes and oak. Mouthfeel is tmedium-bodied and pleasant. Good stuff.
