3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Zwanze Day 2013, Avenue Pub! Pours a dark reddish orange on tap with thin bubbly head that doesn’t really lace. Aroma is tart fruit, musky grapes, and slight funky. Taste follows, but a little sweet. Not bad, but nothing crazy.

Slightly hazy peach color. You can really smell that wine barrel. Thin dry and slightly tart. Great dryness on the palate fades away enjoyably.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of grape, light funk and grain. Pours a light copper color and no head retention. The taste is sour with but there is some dry fruitiness to it. The body is light and effervescent. I think I like the idea of this beer more than the actual product. The beer is very good but could be taken in a lot of more interesting directions.

L’Amoureuse has an interesting combination of acidity and bitterness with a touch of funk and a whiff of vinegar in the aroma. It is slightly boozy with an appealing texture.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Churchkey in D.C. Served alongside L’Amoureuse No. 1 (Blanche). Review from notes.
The beer is reddish and fairly hazy with a small head. The aroma brings grapes, funk, acidity, bread, grains. Definitely the better of the two beers. Smoother with more going on. More pronounced fruit. Tasty grape character throughout. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Sybarite Pig. Pours a reddish-pink clear with slight white head. Tulip. Aroma was very light with grapes and berries. Taste was not sweet (as expected) but more dry with berries, strawberries, grapes and very light hops. Overall drinkable but not really my style of beer.
