brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a finger or two of white head. S: Smells pretty funky. A bit of sweat and musty funk, along with some oak. There is a strong fruit character to it, almost like raspberries and grapes. Some light grass and lemony tartness. T: Pretty fruity with a touch of booze. Almost like a fruit liquer, actually. Moderately tart with notes of green apple and lemon zest. Some mild malt, grass, and wet, musty oak. M: Medium in body with carbonation that is medium to high. O: Not really my thing, but compared to some Italian beers, pretty good.

Fat på All In Beer Fest 2017. Koppar-röd/orange med liten vit krona med stora bubblor. Lite spya och galla i doft och smak som är svår att skaka av sig. Svavel typ? Annars röda bär, nypon, röd vinäger och kolaremmar. Helt ok utöver äggigheten.

Borresteijn (7595) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2017
Sampled at Borefts '10 or '11. Although I liked some of their stuff, this was too sour and puckering for me, very woody and lots of tart red fruits, a bit dirty.

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.
