4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"A bit more sourness than expected also keeps this from being as fruity as expected, but as it warms, the raspberry and especially the rhubarb come out nicely. No sign of 10%. Slightly acidic and gets better each sip. I’d give this a 4.4 but that’s the Cherry Oude Tart score which I liked juuuuuuust a little better. Another fantastic Bruery beer!"

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared during the RBESG London 2014 Sunday Tasting. Pours cloudy orange with a bubbly white head. The aroma holds tart grapefruit, lemon and melon. Light-medium sweet flavor, fruity and juicy, with some sharp acidity. Medium bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Cleansing but warming on the finish with some alcohol, more tart fruits. Nice overall.

Bottle thanks to Kenny at RBESG. It pours hazy orange-amber with minimal head. The nose is sweet, tangy, vinegar, raspberry, light vinegar and wood. The taste is crisp, tart, sherbet, raspberry, big acidity, wood, enamel-busting pucker and barnyard with a dry, acidic finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty big and acidic. Not bad.
