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.

alteregoo (1633) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Piana mizerna, od razu znika do zera. Barwa czerwona, lekko mętna. Aromat budzi skojarzenia z czerwonym wytrawnym winem i jednocześnie z domowym winem modrakowym, do tego dochodzi zapach niedojrzałych winogron, porzeczek, wiśni, starego drewna, skóry. W smaku wytrawne, kwaśne, winne, sporo kwaśnych czerwonych owoców, cierpkiego ciemnego winogrona, nut tanicznych, piwnicznych. Na finiszu pojawia się delikatna słodycz i ziołowość oraz niska, pestkowa goryczka. Wysycenie średnie, wodniste, orzeźwiające w odbiorze, z dobrze ukrytym alkoholem.
Całkiem fajne kwaśne, czerwone piwo, zbalansowane i przyjemne w odbiorze, przez co odrobinę płaskie, podobne do Rodenbacha.
