UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 Bouteille 330ml. Couleur rougeâtre foncé, mousse aérienne couleur sable laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de raisin, de fraise, un peu vineux et acide. Goût vineux, sucré, légère acidité, un peu de fraise et amertume en fin de bouche. Carbonation moyenne-élevée, corps assez dense.

Bouteille 25 cl. Je n’ai pas trop l’habitude de cette sorte de bière mais je dois dire que l’expérience est concluante. Fort belle couleur rouge foncé. Nez de fruits genre cerise et déjà l’aigre, le vinaigre (balsamique). En bouche, même dominants et un équilibre entre l’aigreur et le sucre en font une bière très agréable.

A 750ml corked and caged bottle with an expiry date of December 2016, poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a clear reddish brown colour with a red hue and a one finger khaki head that has decent retention and leaves lots of nice lacing. Aromas are sour, tart, cherry, red wine, oak and sweet vinegar. Tastes sweet and sour but leaning a bit more towards sweet. Cherry, grape, cranberry and oak with a hint of balsamic vinegar. Light to medium bodied with moderate prickly carbonation. Overall, I am a huge fan of sour beers and this was a little on the sweet side for me. However, it was a still a good beer and easy to drink.

Strong sour apple smell with some funk. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thick persistent buff head with tight bubbles. Big sour flavors of turpentine, floral notes with some balancing sweetness. A lingering finish, medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Really interesting.

Mesjasz (853) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Aromat mocno beczkowy i piwniczny, jest ocet ale i wiśnie. Smak cukrowo słodki, lajtowo kwaśny z odrobiną octu winnego. W smaku wiśnie, wino, dębina. Posmak cukrowo karmelowy. Średnio w kierunku słabo.

Flaska från belgolådan. Disig rödbrun vätska. Doft av syrliga körsbär, trä, stall och jordkällare. I smak:syrliga röda bär. Jäst, hö, torkad frukt och stall. Ganska söt men blir en ganska trevlig balans mot syran. Förenklat så kan man likna den vid en syrlig cherry coke

The King of this style of beer. Complex, sour, oakey, vineious, in your face. Love it.

pioter (74) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2016 Piana ładna karmelowa, redukujaca sie do małej obwódki przy szkle. Kolor piwa ciemna miedź w brąz, klarowne. W aromacie praktycznie wino a wiec winogrono, kwas, siarka. Bardzo moocno wysycone, az piekace w przełyk. Pełne ale bardzo orzeźwiajace. Bardzo kwasne. Znowu winogrono, wiśnia, a na końcu pozostaje prawie nie wyczuwalna, delikatna goryczka.

Pours a clear iced tea brown with a medium head of tan foam. Nice sharp, tart aroma. Taste is crisp and refreshing with tart, sour cherry and a touch of vinegar. Not too sour. Very smooth and tasty. One of the best beers I tried at the fest. Will definetly be on the look out for this one.

Flesje gedeeld met familie. Koperkleurig bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is kriek achtig. Smaak is fruitig zuur (kriek). Geen nasmaak.
