Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Keg at the Grove Inn, Huddersfield. Reddish brown shade with absolutely zero head. Nose is lightly spicy, hedgerow fruity. Taste is a nice combination of cherry and grape with some light chocolate notes lurking. Only mildly sour and quite drying. Fairly intriguing but not amazing.

Draft. Unbelievably acidic. Vinous with some oaky notes. Intense but tasty. Definitely not an easy sipper.

Piana niewielka, krótkotrwa?a. Aromat przenosi nas na wie? w pe?nym znaczeniu tego s?owa, jest tu troch? stajni, serów ple?niowych, mo?e nawet lekko zje?cza?ych, s? te? wi?nie i kompotowe truskawki. Smak Beerbery to kwa?ne wi?nie, troch? czerwonych owoców. Ca?o?? okraszona jest zapachami wsi, obor?, stajni?, wilgotn? ?ció?k?. Piwo jest wytrawne bez wyra?nej goryczki. To piwo jest po prostu "dzikie" i to s? w?a?nie moje smaki. Troch? teraz ?a?uj?, ?e nie zatrzyma?em si? na d?u?ej przy piwach z Loverbeer

At ACBF. Highly unusual sour ale, in that this is apparently semi-spontaneously fermented with yeasts sitting on the peel of the grapes that are being added. Needless to say, the result is an extremely vinous beer, with a medium, yellowish white head and dark burgundy colour; extremely fruity taste, esters - grapes, wine vinegar, candied orange, spicy notes, utterly vinous mouthfeel, fruity acidity increasing and drying the finish along with woody tannins and some warming alcohol, like an old sherry. Very interesting - and confirming my impression that the Italians, or better put, the new generation of Italian craft breweries, are becoming the masters of vinous, barley wine and grape-influenced beers.

reddish purple color, small head that faded quickly. Lactic acid, cherry, raspberry and peach. Lots of sour up front but that fades quickly. loads of berriess and fruits.thin oily body. a strangely unique beer but maybe too sour for my tastes.

ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle at ACBF. Plum, very fruity, kind off sour but not too. This is probably the best Loverbeer I've had.

Strife21 (338) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours pink grapefruit color no head looks chunky like a smoothie. Smell is sour, cherry and yeast. Taste is sour red wine, cherry, funk and vinegar. Delicious Light body, light carb.

Bevibilità fantastica per una birra di facile beva,molto vinosa e dalle note acide per nulla fastidiose. Regina italiana delle sour

3.7
Tmoney99 (14455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Tap. Poured a hazy dark red copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour fruit aroma. Medium to abundant body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.
