En positiv overraskelse. Tilpas med bitterhed. Duft af eddike. Men en behagelig smag.

Jow (3185) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle at home I got from super market. Seriously this is balsamic vinegar, now I love balsamic but I don’t drink glasses of it. Pours nice enough ruby brown. Nose is you know what. Tastes of balsamic, apples, port wine, cherry. Chewy mouthfeel. Anyways tasty enough amd great on salad.

Bottle 25cl. Red in color, clear, pours with two fingers head which reduces quickly. Aroma of balsamic vinegar and nail polish remover, some red wine quality, a hint of barnyard in background. High carbonation, fairly sour, more like vinegar then lactic acid. Nice beer.

oliodnb (634) - ITALY - MAR 7, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours dark ruby red with a beautiful light beige head. Aroma is vinegar, red fruits, dark fruits and berries with a sweetish note. Taste is similar, less acetic and with more sweetness, fruits again, light vinous note, very well balanced. Medium body, medium carbonation. Excellent.

GioPiso (20) - ITALY - MAR 1, 2016
Way too vinegary and acidic for me, every sip made me squirm, I did not enjoy it. I guess this style is just not for me!

BobyFischer (266) - FRANCE - FEB 22, 2016
Robe brune bien foncée aux délicats reflets rubis. Mousse blanc cassé se dissipant rapidement, fin col au final. Nez : notes vineuses, liège, bois, tonneau, acidité, huiles essentielles. Bouche : petite douceur, belle acidité, notes de fruits rouges, des bois, cerise, citron.Mais aussi liège, tonneau, notes boisées subtiles. Un style que je ne connaissais pas.Et ma foi, plutôt étonnant et agréable.

wombat23 (294) - Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours amber with a red tinge and a beige head. Aroma and taste of red wine, sour cherries and balsamic vinegar. It’s rather sour, but also has a sugary component that’s reminiscent of fruit juice. Overall, it’s okay, but it’s a little too sweet.

Aroma: definitely sweet with some underlying sourness; Appearance: dark red with white head that dissipates fairly quickly; good lacing; Taste: very tart with pronounced vinegar; sweet like balsamic vinegar; Palate: medium body with finish that turns more sour than tart; Overall: pretty good but not balanced enough; too tart and vinegary.
