UPDATED: NOV 13, 2016 From Delh*** Nivelles :: Bottled 2013 >> Belle rouge aigre-douce aromatisée au fruits rouges et vieillie en fût. A mon palais les arômes fruitées jurent par trop sur le belle maturation boisée. Nez magnifique: la framboise et la cerise titillent en 1ers les narines. Arrivent ensuite quelques senteurs balsamiques accompagnées d’un maltage caramélisé doux sans amertume. D’abord acidulée, l’attaque devient fort fruitée charnue sans tomber dans la facilité du sirupeux. Au contraire: beaucoup de finesse également dans la rondeur équilibrée douce mais pas épaisse; cependant qui l’empêche de contre-balancer la présence virile des fruits. Quant aux saveurs boisées, elles se révèlent en en milieu de bouche avec finesse sur des notes vaguement vineuses aigrelettes qui accentuent l’acidité orginelle. Le tout marque le palais avec longueur, les fruits restant trop prégnant pour moi. #374

Tap/craftownia. Kolor wiśniowy, drobnopecherzykowa, brudno biala piana, pięknie oblepiające szkło, klarowne. W aromacie maliny prosto z krzaka, kwaśne wiśnie, jogurt wiśniowy. Początkowo nieznacznie słodkie, pózniej kwaśne i takie pozostaje na podniebieniu, alkohol pięknie ułożony, długi wisniowy finisz. Dodatek wiśni, malin mega!

thomashall (872) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2016
750ml bottle. Reddish brown pour. Aroma is mixture of raspberry and cherry, combined smells like leather and vinegar. Taste is oak barrel up front and more cherry than raspberry. Interesting, really complex and pretty good.

Bosskie (838) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2016
Beautiful brown-red beer, luminous, slightly opaque, with a weak white head. Smell is sour and full. Wood, sour cherries, vanilla, apple, raspberries, maybe some elderberry and even subtle honey. Quite full, almost like wine. Touch of salt, hint of caramel. Taste is full and smooth. Deliciour sour fizz which makes the mouth water. Subtle bitterness in the background balanced against sweetness. Crisp lightly metallic dry finish. Lots of flavours that mingle beautifully: wood, cherries, hint of lemon, maybe even raisins.

Arcanor (313) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
750ml bottle, best before 2017-04-29. Pour red with brownish notes. No foam, just a small cloud. Aroma is from small fruits, raspberries and cherries, wood, wet leather and vinegar. Taste is very complex and hard to tell what’s is front of what. Sour malt, cherries, wood, leather.... It’s in the WOW factor. Medium carbonation, slick and sweet. Long sweet finish of cherries wood and dark vinegar.
