2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown body, headless. Very sour, acidic style. Wine notes, some red fruit, but way over the top for my taste. Okay palate not too thin. But I don’t enjoy it much. Happy to go to a more balanced beer next. Maybe some fruit would help. Or aging. (Bottle from ABS Drinks)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Again a good sour red/brown from this brewer. Tasty and refreshing. Would have to try it along the Duchesse. I think this one is a little drier.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasantly sour farmyard aroma in a mahogony pour. Flavour is sour to start but builds with complex layers of fruit, bread, and bubblegum. A fresher version of their benchmark Duchesse De Bourgogne.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. One year old bottle. Pours a clear, deep mahogany color and a beige, creamy head. Aroma of leather, vinegar, sweet cherries, oak, yeast, wine grapes, dried fruit, crowberry and licorice. Quite complex. The flavor follows up but is more sweet with tones of brown sugar, sweet cherries, wood, cola and hints of balsamico. Has a slick and sticky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A really complex and tasteful ale, well-balanced and a delicious version of the style.
