UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 esters and grape character, which is subtle but discernible. a little brett, some sourness. pours out a slightly hazy soft rose hued color. not much head. pointed sour note, but not out of balance. tangy, tart, sour and very complex. some bitter notes in the finish.

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

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle from Tonneau Verre, Yverdon-les-Bains
The color is light amber, muddy, with reddish hue; small compact head. Very nice aroma, vinous, elegant, with some vinegar sourness, and berries. Highly carbonated, smooth, with good body presence, nice combination of fruits and sourness, balanced and harmonious.
Excellent.

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.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Swingtop from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy short lived head. Aroma is sour berry with astringency. Flavor is sour with a lot of berry and something like astringent wood. Very nice brew.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Cloudy amber with a hint of pink. Acidic musty barrel nose. Real sour wild rustic feel to it. I like beers with wine in them. Thin body and very tart & dry. Nice sour.

Huhzubendah (2668) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2013
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.

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.
