375ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Pours a deep violet (amazing!) color with a thin foam. Aroma is fantastic, so powerful and persistent, vinous, red grapes, blackberry, wow! Flavour is very sour, aggressive but pleasant, fruity, vinous, black currants, complex like a good wine. Medium body, medium carbonation. This is a real world class lambic! wetherel (1899) - Cupertino, California, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Wow. I’ve been very much looking forward to this beer. Tasted at toncatcher T3? Bottle from Wee Heavy? Cloudy red color. Sourness is light. Very easy to drink. Excellent. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Corked bottle from SoLan. Thanks, Alan!1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Pours a muddy, murky cranberry juice red with a nose-punching aroma of sour cranberry and overly ripened sour strawberry. Hints of raspberry soaked in cedar vinegar are in there as well. Flavor is a punch-in-the-mouth rush of bittered and soured cranberry and cherry, with dark fruits left in oak rounding out the flavor. Thin yet lingering mouthfeel. Wow. This isn’t a beer; it’s an experience. AWESOME.
2008 vintage. Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a murky maroon lipstick colored body with no head. The aroma is really nice. Lots of black currants. Deep cereal grain. The flavor is dominated by sour black currants with sour generic sour. The pH must be about 2. Really damned sour. This beer is right up my alley! Heck yeah! Thanks for a great beer.
