Drinked on tap. On the nose old grape brandy, raspberry. In mouth is medium light bodied, a very enjoyable tartness, seems a bit young but like all loverbeer 's beer is a very good beer.

3.3
Vinx (133) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2017
Bottiglia del 2013. All’aroma emerge il mosto d’uva, non elegantissimo e "sciropposo" su una base prevalentemente di acido citrico, sentori di cantina, muffa, legno e un che di balsamico, purtroppo non perfettamente amalgamati tra di loro. L’intensità lascia un po’ a desiderare. Colore ramato tendente al torbido, schiuma moderata e molto poco persistente. Abbastanza dolce con un’acidità moderata. Corpo molto leggero, carbonazione medio-bassa, 8 gradi alcolici soprendentemente nascosti. Una birra di cui ho sentito parlar bene ma che non mi ha certo stupito per l’intensità degli aromi e la complessità in generale. Mi riservo di assaggiare una bottiglia più recente.
