Fruity, berry and brown sugar aroma. Dark red clear liquid, white-brown head. Well balanced high sweetness and sourness. Bitter-sweet finish, soft carbonation. One of the best in its style!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A sour reddish beer with a impressive red / brown look and still clear taste even of fruit. Wine is very present in the palate and saving it from only being sour. Very different but still enjoyable.

750 ml. thanks semich. pours intense, dark brown, but with a ruby-garnet glimmer. adequate lacing. typical sour ale nose. tart fruit, smooth yet silky. a bit of underlying raspberry fruit and currants on the tail end. taste? fruit follows onto the flavor and into the finish to coat the palate, both on the sides and the front end. sweet, ripe fruits, a healthy dose of carbonation (reminiscent of champagne), and a lighter dose of yeast. on the palate, it’s velvety, yet extremely smooth. excellent for the style. it’s one to savor.

prima flemish dopo la petrus oud bruine..l’ho assaggiata dopo la petrus quindi, da quello che ho potuto percepire questa birra è molto più acetica rispetto alla prima ma è l’aceto che è diverso..li era astringente mentre qui è dolce,sembra quasi di bere aceto balsamico..frizzantezza bassa,corpo medio rispetto alla precedente,malto lievemente presente,luppolo non pervenuto..a lungo andare stanca ma va provata! bevuta all’elfo

Light acetic acid on the nose. Opaque brown thin head. Good sour kick but not overwhelming. Good structure behind it. Finishes with lingering soreness. Great example of the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very bright plum and cherry, tart, medium palate, lots of lacing and slightly syrupy but not too thick. Pretty good. Menu description says 6% ABV, I find it hard to believe, feels more intense.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, ABS drinks) Dark brown colour, little slowly diminishing beige head, no lacing. Lots of acid bubbles. Aroma of orange peels, hops, spices, light alcohol, sweet fruits, light raisin, cherries, soap. Sour, spicy and sweet taste. Flavour of fruits (cherry) and wood. Vivid mouthfeel, almost like cola blended with alcohol. Some sweet and not too harsh maltiness in the finish.

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby with a tan head. Aroma is little lacking with a tiny hint of citrus, but mostly carbonation. Flavour is fantastic with wine and grape notes a little sourness and a smooth almost sweet finish. Body is thin. Absolutely wonderful.
