I had the beer at the Kaapse Brouwers 2nd anniversary festival. The look of the beer are beautiful. The color is a lovely deep purple/red. It has the color of plums. The beer is cloudy. On top a minimal layer of fast collapsing foam is formed. These are about the only nice things I can say. The taste and the smell are awful (in my opinion). Its extremely sour. I taste and smell wild yeast, which I strongly dislike. The smell is slightly better than the taste. In the smell som cherry and plum aromas can be distinguished.There is even a little sweetness in the smell. The taste only contains those disgusting sour tones. It almost makes me puke. However, my mother absolutely loved this beer. So I guess, this beer is very nice for the right audience. If you’re into Kriek, Lambic or Faro this might just be your cup of tea. It most certainly isn’t mine.

(Thx!) Sampled draft @ Tilquin English Beer Festival 2016. Massive pink red, very dark & very dark pink head. Nose is massively milky sour, fruit is crazy, red grapes, berries, juicy, cherry, plum. Taste is basic yoghurt sour, common to the other UK sours tried at the festival, on top you get this massive fruit, sour jam, massive plum, cranberry, red grape,… thick yoghurt body. Crazily big fruit profile is the game here, lovely, great drink.
