4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tantalizing, complex aroma. Teakwood brown color. The aroma has a hint of mild funkiness, with caramel and a touch of dark fruit. Flavor very complex, with mild sourness mixing with malt sweetness, some hop bitterness. It all comes together quite nicely! Substantial body to this beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Deep and dark amber, slighty hazy, with a nice, creamy, forever lasting light beige head. Sharp, very fruity and slightly tannic nose. Definitely some light/white wine qualities to it. Light malt presence, grapes, maybe a hint of dark fruits or wild type of berries. Surprisingly zero alcool smell. Pleasent and intriguing nose overall. Quite different in the mouth. Again a winey presence, redd-ish this time tho, quite slick and oily, slightly warming, but in no way I’d have guessed about 10%. Some wet wood/earth presence, solid malt backbone, less fruity and more dark/roasted compared to the aroma. Very mild sourness, it’s more tart. Average carbonation, medium body, oily texture. What a surprise! Extremely good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 50CL from Erzengel. Thnankls
Look: clear dark ruby-brown, small beige frothy head with poor retention.
Aroma: vinous - stale wine/light vinegar, nice malty character with dark fruit tones (prunes, figs, cranberries), some yeast/dough, some chocolate even!
Taste: again, malt sweetness, dark fruit with light vinous acidity. Medium to rich body, still drinkable. The 10% abv are nowhere to be found.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark pour, thin head. Aroma is very toasty, roasty, dark chocolate, light soured wheaty notes. Taste is roasty, light sourness, tart with a lot of burnt grain, light coffee, chocolaty notes. Palate is med full bodied with medium carbonation. Not bad, but quite difficult to drink, rather heavy which clashes with the dry sour style.
