vinivini (1702) - BELARUS - FEB 15, 2017
Draught. Deep ruby red. Clear. Good beige head. Aroma: caramel, fruit acidity, fine yeast. Similar taste. Not as tart as some more respected style presenters. Sugar is there. Still tasty and highly drinkable.

pjotrapostou (70) - POLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Dość słodkie jak na Flanders, w aromacie głownie czerwone dojrzałe owoce - najbardziej porzeczki. Smak jest lekko octowy, ale zaraz po tym idzie spora słodycz, ktra ostatecznie przeważa nad kwasowością. Ciekawie wyważone, łatwo się pije.

mikeyo1 (763) - Linkping, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2017
Tap @ bishops arms. Pours a deep brown liquid with a tiny beige head. Aroma is mildly acidic / lactic with plums, wood, cranberries, caramel. Taste is dry, mildly lactic and vinegarly with wood, cranberries, nuts, dark bread, some brown sugar, lemon, cherries. Dry acidic but not tart finish. Lingering hints of wood, cherries, strawberries and slight vinegar. Overall subtle sour / wild notes with decent complexity

Rugamu (169) - SPAIN - FEB 3, 2017
Gran cerveza mitad belga, mitad sour, ese toque cido del final se hace muy agradable. A mi entender una gran cerveza. Repetira.

Johnstledger8 (1038) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark rusty brown with a fading light beige bubbly head. Aroma is of cherries, cranberry, raspberry, nuts, toffee, hint of milk chocolate. Taste is of cherries, chocolate, toffee, dark fruits, raisins, hint of ginger and cinnamon. Watery to oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Lele (477) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 23, 2017
ASPETTO: rosso rubino scuro limpido, con schiuma abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: agrodolce, fruttato (frutta rossa). GUSTO: buona in bocca, ma con un acido un po troppo leggero. Birra tendente decisamente al dolce, senza mai essere stucchevole. Molti frutti rossi, ma troppa poca acidit, una birra buona, ma un po troppo delicata per una sour.

Zarrach76 (163) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 11, 2017
Belle brune avec des reflets pourpre/cuivrs, transparente et avec une mousse ivoire trs fine stable sur quelques millimtres. Nez sur de bons malts chocolat, la vanille, le vin blanc ptillant, le caramel, la prune, le raisin, lorange, la mandarine, le pamplemousse, notes de balsamique, de groseille, de cassis, de cerise griotte, de coriandre... Nez sympathique, simple, agrable, effectivement base de Lambic mais avec des touches de Ale brune. La carbonatation est soutenue, lalcool trs discret (il aurait presque fallut un degr ou deux de plus pour rellement faire exploser les saveurs), lamertume correct et le petit ct acidul est plaisant, avec ces touches de balsamique lgres (bien moindre quune Rodenbach Grand Cru bien entendu...). Je ne la classifierais pas dans les Sour Red/Brown dailleurs, mais plutt dans les exprimentales... En bouche, belle douceur au palet avec des sucres gnreux, type sirop de canne ou sirop dagave avec des sensations umami. Notes de jus de citron et dorange en bouche, toujours ce petit ct acidul qui nous oriente sur les agrumes et le raisin blanc. Lamertume avec une certaine astringence se retrouve sur le final, assez long mais pas assez rond ni assez complexe. Il manque un quelque chose cette bire pour tre dfinitivement bonne, ne serait-ce quun poil dalcool supplmentaire. Cela dit, boire bien fraiche un soir dt, cest parfait ! Un bon produit, un peu trop dans la douceur mon got cependant... Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.
