lotsalaughs (170) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2016
Light brown pour with thin tan foam. Sour citrus-like aroma underlaid with toasty malt. Taste is light sour, but this dissapates to a malty edge that lingers. Hops not particularly noticeable, but a low level of earthy bitterness is present as well. Quite complex flavour. Carbonation medium, as well as the mouthfeel. Finishes clean and dry with that lingering dark malt hint.

mateuszk (2399) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Pours brown, slightly hazy with big white head. Lots of tart fruits, red berries, red wine, oak, some burned sugar, vinegar. Medium sweet at first, then super fruity with sour, dry and oaky finish. Medium body, high carbonatio. Classic.

Gehbe (305) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 27, 2016
Pours deep ruby brown with a big light tan head and nice lacing. Wonderful aroma of red currants and cherries, funk, vinegar, candy/caramel, hints of darker malts and chocolate. Nicely balanced taste: medium sourness upfront with light sweetness lingering behind, hints of crispy bitterness on finish. Light to medium body, high carbonation, nice mellow alcoholic warmth on finish, some stickiness. Excellent!

thellgren (886) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2016
0.75 l bottle with a champagne cork from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is dark brown. Aroma has raisins and other dried fruits. Caramel and liquorice or something... and sourness in your throat. Very complex. This was blend 2016 and I probably drank it too young.

Decent biere rouge, but certainly not with the complexity od others within the style. Fairly easy to drink and enjoyable though.
