My discovery from the Bärner Bier Festival 2017. Smell: leather, sourness, wine. Taste: complex notes of wine and beer, with sourness mid- to mid-high. Wild fermentation together with lots of wine (from the barrels) position this brew more on the wine side. Overall, great brew. BlackHaddock (7319) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2017
28th May 2017, another bottle brought by Mat to the Burning Soul brewery tasting session, cheers mate. Red hue to the amber pour, weak topping of off-white bubbles. Winey, red berry aroma, taste had a sour front with red wine, oak and berries within the tart/sharp nature of the beer. Not normally my sort of brew, but I liked this. minutemat (5471) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
330ml bottle @ Burning Soul tasting, brought by me. Pours deep reddish amber, thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity red berries, some defined oaky red wine, continuing to taste. Quite rich, with a welcome sour edge. Liked this, wish I had another bottle to savour. RichTheVillan (7835) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2017
