3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle @ Alex’s(thanks Sergiy for arranging this trade for me). Pours a cloudy brown orange colour with a thin off-white head. Nose is acetic and musty. Flavour is smooth for the abv, the balsamic character is fairly prominent, sweetness isn’t overbearing, the barrel character. Very tasty brew.

Filthy brown color with small head. Sour aroma, fruity, vinous, with a strong acetic component. Full bodied, great to find some residual sweetness here, solid malt depth, and strong sourness with some acetic acid. Fruity, powerful, still dynamic.

750ml bottle traded from Louis-Philippe B. to Brian at Alex’s. Aroma is acidic with lots of balsamic, barrel notes, fruitiness. Taste is smooth on the beginning and moderately spur after, bready, with balsamic and barrel notes. Good stuff, but it’s definitely must be shared.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green. Reddish/purplish pink. Clear and flat. Aroma... Mon Dieu! Oak, vinegar, basement, more oak, red wine, wet dog, ginger, chilli, oak. Sour taste with a sweet stone fruit edge. Medium to long finish. Thin and flat body but it works for this beer. As good a sour as I’m likely to have anytime soon.
