UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 Maybe be it was after tasting few ipas, but this one is absolute great. So fruity, sour, winy, fruity, rich in taste, aroma knocks you down, perfect look. I am down on my knees.

Genial . Todo es perfecto en esta cerveza aunque ese persistente olor a barniz de madera me resulta un pelín desagradable

Ambro206 (357) - ITALY - MAR 15, 2016
Birra interessante ma esageratamente addomesticata per il grande pubblico. Al naso caratteri interessanti con un leggero profilo di cuoio e stalla che fa capolino nella generale dolcezza di ciliegie e lamponi. In bocca si apre con un profilo decisamente dolce seguito da note citriche, lime, con finale lungo e leggermente vinoso. In generale il bilanciamento é troppo sbilanciato sulla dolcezza andando a coprire tutte le note complesse e intriganti della fermentazione selvaggia. Corpo medio robusto carbonatazione scarsa e sensazione rotonda ed appagante in bocca.

Roodbruin bier met mooie offwhite schuimkraag. Aroma: rode vruchten, eik, rietsuiker, champagne, rode wijn. Smaak: rode wijn, kersen, appel, rietsuiker, druiven, eiken notities en aangename zuurheid. Gemiddeld mondgevoel met middelgrote koolzuur en zurige afdronk.

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

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.

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.

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!
