4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a light copper color, with essentially no head. Notes of leather, "sweaty horse blanket," and the countryside during Spring come through in the aroma. To call it "appetizing" would be the equivalent of calling Luther "vaguely significant." The palate shows a bit of spritz up front, before a moderate sourness, more of the aforesaid Brettanomyces characteristics, light fruit notes, a slight bitterness, and a touch of lemon come through. The palate is bone dry and mouthfeel is just right. Mouthfeel is perhaps just slightly filled out by a bit of residual Pediococcus character, but it is by no means ropy. The finish is dry, lightly tart, and lightly leathery. Overall, absolutely wonderful; seemingly the earthly form of what "cuvee" should mean.
“Cuvée de Ranke“, Flasche (75 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Goldbraun, leicht trüb. - In der Nase deutliche säuerliche Lambic-Noten, Weizenmalz, Pferdedecke und Balsamico. - Antrunk herb-muffig säuerlich, Lambic, frische pampelmusige Herbe. Mild rezent, erfrischend säuerlich trocken, dennoch weich und rund dank ganz dezenter Weizenmalz-Restsüße. - Weicher als ein Lambic und noch tiefgründiger als ein Sour Ale - große Klasse! einherjar (476) - Rijeka, CROATIA - NOV 23, 2017
Orange color, very small white head. Aroma orange, apple, honey, white wine and vinegar. AllGrainScout2 (12) - HK, HONG KONG - NOV 22, 2017
Taste sour and light tart, citrus, apples, honey, hint of champagne.
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Close to perfect..... I like how the malty sweetness in there balances off the sourness, making it very friendly to the palate. davidezdonz (611) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 18, 2017
A 750ml bottle with a best before date of 28th May 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a nice clear copper orange colour with a just over one finger light beige head that dissipated fairly quickly and left some spotty lacing. Aromas were tart, oak, white wine, apple, herbal and funky. Tastes tart, but only mildly sour, red apple, lime, cork, oak, funk and maybe hay with only a hint of a herbal element and vinegar. Acidic, medium to light bodied with good moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice and balanced blend of a sour ale and Lambic. Much better than the Kriek version in my opinion. rumore (809) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 17, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours golden with somehow irregular white foam, limited. Aroma is green apple, white pulp fruits, strawberries. Body is dense with a tickling carbonation. Taste is intensely sour. Finish is long and sour.

Farmhouse-brettish aroma but relatively mild. Sour and mildewy taste with a lot of wodden notes in the bitterness. Great beer. bigtaster (1033) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2017

Draught. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is tangerine, hay, funk, pear, and wood. Taste is tart; tangerine, nectarine, some funk, pear, hay, pepper, some hoppiness, and very light earth. Medium body. Moderate, tight carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. The aroma is the best part of the beer. djcampbell (368) - Moravany, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 17, 2017
Vynikající a velice zajímavá zkušenost. Příjemné aroma s tóny citronu, jablka, silnější říz, jemná, déle držící pěna a lahodná chuť. Jado (805) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Clear caramel-amber body with a thin but lasting white head. Funk, stone fruit, lemon and a vinegary sourness in the nose. Taste is brightly sour up front, but lots of peach and plum follow it up. Bit of pepper in there too. Clean finish with a spicy aftertaste. A pretty awesome sour beer.
