1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle "caves, het bier van lier" Pours out amber coloured. Medium head, won’t hold long enough. Sour-fruity smell, some wood inside also. Lighlty carbonated, a bit to less, sourness is not to overwhelming, taste lots of fruits and caramel. More sweet then expected. Some cookie-like stuff at the taste. Sour ale isn’t really my stuff, so probably way underrated...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 250ml from Marche de Natalie, Bouillon, Belgium. Red amber with off white head. Verhaeghe certainly seem to do sours well, not one of my favourite styles but this is quite drinkable, fruity, sourish cherry note with damsons plus a slight caramel, boiled note, it is smooth and full. Pretty decent.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A surprising and impressive beer, this one. 25cL bottle pours a bright and clear reddish-brown, thin layer of white lace. Intense and tart aroma like sour red wine, whiskey-oak, and a bit of sour cherry. Inviting. Flavor is tart and juicy, with cherry and vinous notes, with mild acidity on light and lively mouthfeel. Grape-tangy finish. Wow. Damned interesting, damned likable, and refreshing to boot.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(on bottle) Dark orange, white head. Aroma of champions and kandis, mould too. Very sweet taste, but it has a tad of funk, witch makes it a real gilsdrink, skål, tøser.
