UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Barwa ciemno rubinowa z ladnie krazkujaca piana. Aromat winny owocowy. W smaku winne, owocowe, musujace, kwaskowe, delikatne. Przyjemnie sie pije ale jak dla mnie to idzie w strone wina musujacego.

Merci à Catherine Schlager qui, grâce à son commentaire dans La Presse, m’a fait découvrir cette merveille. Définitivement vineux cet olfactif complexe en notes de chêne, de bois, de caramel et de petits fruits, sous une base vinaigrée et acidifiée. La complexité est poussée jusqu’à la découverte de notes de chocolat et de praline. Un olfactif complexe et évolutif. Brune aux reflets rougeâtre, claire, une mousse énorme, crémeuse, au maintient presque sans fin, qui laisse une magnifique dentelle sur le verre. Une sensation de chaleur acidifiée, vineuse, vinaigrée et sucrée, qui se développe en une explosion de petits fruits caramélisés et aux accents de bois de chêne. Le mélange acidité et sucré est hors du commun. Les puissantes notes de boisé de chêne valsent avec les subtilités des sucres, nous donnant une impression chocolatée, caramélisée, non sans nous rappeler certains vieux portos, mais sans la texture liquoreuse. Une complexité de saveurs digne d’un grand cru. L’art du brassage porté à son summum. À ceux qui peuvent traverser le mur de l’acidité, cette bière vous procurera un pur bonheur.

MarkoNm (1177) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours a rather dark brown color, hazy, topped with lots of beige colored head. Lot’s of carbonation. Aroma is fruity with some cidery and soury notes. Taste starts with sweet fruity feel - some berries, cherry perhaps and some others. Followed by relatively mild soury taste (cider and new wine quality) - actually one of my first sours, so it was a bit of a surprise, but definitely in a good way.

WelshPL (25) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 5, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Graet aroma of red wine, red fruits: cherrys, currant, aroma of barells. Deep red, almost brown colour, very poor foam, but good lacing. Quite sparkling, sour, a little bit of herbs. Very good bear, it’s my start with sour ales, can’t wait for more. Bought in bottle at Piotr i Paweł, Poznań.
