winegarner's rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - JAN 28, 2007
2004 Bottle. Upon opening, botle slowly fizzed out of the top. Poured a cloudy dark orange probably from the sediment that got kicked up from the gushing. Lots of carbonation but the head diminishes very fast. Aroma is outstanding, acidic pineapple brett with freshly emptied red wine barrel. Flavor has a somewhat sweet crystal malt base that quickly gets overrun by the acidity and the cask influence. Slight horse blanket funk but very low levels. More brett fruitiness combined with a light and fruity red wine and oak. Also has flavors of apple cider. Alcohol is extremely well hidden and is hard to think that this is 13%. This beer is quite amazing.

Zlotta (3408) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2017
0.33 l bottle from ’Belgiuminabox.com’, brewed in 2013, bottled in April 2015, cellared for almost two years. Slightly hazy, very dark red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Slightly sweetish, sourish, quite fruity and vinous aroma of balsamic vinegar, red grapes, oak, sour cherries, almond and some caramel. Slightly sweetish, quite sour, a little funky, quite vinous and rather fruity taste of caramel, oak, balsamic vinegar, cherries, red grapes and redcurrant, followed by a medium long, rather tart, woody-dry and vinous finish. Medium body, slightly astringent and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very complex, intense and at the same time extremely refreshing. Fortunately, the vinegar aroma is less retronasal, could otherwise have been too much. No alcohol whatsoever detectable, highly enjoyable!
