Bottiglia 33cl @ la pausa. Marrone con schiuma non troppo persistente. Aceto e dolce, un po stucchevole

cokolwiek11 (167) - POLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Clear dark reddish brown, low creamy head that sticks to the glass and stays on the beer. Thats how it should look like. Aroma: Fruits, wine, dry wine, little vinegar, slightly peach, red grapes. Old, dry acohol. Beautiful. Taste: medium sour, light sweetness. Caramel, fruits, dry wine, some vinegar. Yummy. Palate: medium body, dry on palate (despite high residual sweetness), long vinous finish, low saturation. Overall: I love this style, one of the best beers in this style, aboslutely briliant.

Alexanderdahl (111) - DENMARK - SEP 5, 2015
Pours clear, dark red/brown with a fine slightly brown head. Aroma is sweet, yet vinegary. Like a fruity balsamico. Ripe red berries! Sour, vinegary on tounge, but quickly eases into sweet relief. medium carbonation helps flavors linger and develop.

OnlyRogueAngel (13) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2015
Pours a deep chestnut red with a foamy beige head. Aroma is old oak and red berries, with a sharp sour smell. It tastes of malt, sour fruits, herbs and like a forest after a storm, earthy and woody, but robustly rather than bitterly and is smooth but tingly on your tongue. A very enjoyable beer for the more discerning palate.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
330 mL bottle, gushes lightly. Pours a hazed reddish brown with a thick cap of white head that fades to a ring. Nose is deeply acetic, cocoa, leather, woods, toasted bread and dark fruits. Subtle oak, vanilla and light alcohol on the back end. Malty on the front end and surprisingly full, moderate acid on the finish and a slightly tannic back. Well balanced, rustic and tasty. Moderate body and high carbonation.
