Not sour or wild ale as advertised, just a fake fruit beer on blanche basis. Very perfumed at nose but this is more like a diluted juice with water than a real beer. Almost no trace of hops, indeed. Lousy.

Colore rosastro, con schiuma quasi inesistente. Al naso non è molto invadente, una leggera punta di fruttato. In bocca invece mi soddisfa un pò di più, non molto carbonata, rende la bevuta piacevole e dissetante.

Courtesey & THX! of Travlr. Feb. 2012 Vintage. 50 cl. bottle sampled / had half @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst during the Tour de Geuze. Pours a bright orange with bubbles rising, little fading white head. Smell is pale weak strawberries rather than raspberries which is what they added according to the description, light yeast, hint mould, touch watery and lightly overripe,… Taste is lightly sweet and mouldy, light sugar, slightly fermenting, touch dusty, light sweet malt and yeast, overall a bit weak and watery, dominated by weak strawberry notes,… Reminds me more of a weak UK style fruit beer than a sour but very thirst-quenching & neutral enough to be paired with food I suppose which is what a lot of this Italian breweries aim at.

Bottle at Grote Dorst. Hazy golden color, large fluffy white head. Aroma of dusty strawberries. Taste is softly sour fruit, dry and dusty finish. Decent effort.
