3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz bottle there is no head at all. Cloudy reddish-brown. The aroma is faint for me. Can’t place it. A little bit of lemon? Medium to heavy sour at first, but mellows as the ale warms ... tart berries come to mind. Very lively, almost fizzy carbonation that softens after a bit. This has been my first venture into sour ales, and it’s definitely "different" for me. I can’t compare it to others having had no experience. And while I can definitely say that this is not my favorite style of beer, at the same time I’m surprised by how much I’m enjoying this brew, more and more with each new sip.
backlog z PAKK 2017. W aromacie bardzo przyjemna beczka, pestki winogron, taniczność, czarna porzeczka. W smaku dosyć wytrawne, lekko dzikie, z czasem wychodzi skóra, ziołowa goryczka i porzeczka. MrTipple (6424) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017

Od początku potężny, głęboki, kwaśny profil z niuansami owoców w typie wiśni, jeżyn, porzeczek, czyli tym czym cechuje się Cabernet Sauvignon i piwo oddało charakter beczki. Wysycenie ciut za wysokie. W smaku na początku słodkie, przyjemne, momentalnie staje się kwaśne, taninowe, owocowe, a finisz jest długi, obfitujący w garbniki, wytrawny. Dużo ciemnych owoców, dębiny i dzikiego charakteru. Świetne w odbiorze przy dosyć potężnym ciele, alkohol świetnie ukryty. Piwo bardzo przyjemne, z czystą przyjemnością sięga się po kolejny łyk.

Pours a dark cranberry reddish brown with no visible head. Tart aroma with notes of red wine. Not too tart or sour but enough to give a full mouth tingly feel. The currents give it a nice tart cranberry like flavor. Slightly dry finish but very refreshing and enjoyable. brianza_ale (219) - ITALY - SEP 2, 2017
37,5 cl bottle, last one on Whole Foods shelf, straight from California back to Italy. Pours a moderate one finger off white head, deep ruby to dark brown appearance. The aroma it unleashes is a pure and pungent aromatic bomb: cherries and amarena, raspberries, ribes, fruit and berries all over the place, and then this unique fresh piedmont red grapes background that captures everything, closing with a sweet wooden scent. Tastes young northern italy red wine, ribes, berries, amarena, with again a fabulous barrel and wooden finish. Spot on medium and fruity sweetness, medium plus and very smooth sourness which dissolves quite quickly leaving a light fruity tartness behind, not acidic or balsamic whatsoever; almost inexistent dissolving bitterness, it doesn't even need it. The red wine and light carbernet notes are really there and very pleasing. Medium to full bodied and mid carbonated, light fizzy and creamy texture. It probably can't surpass the BFM Saint Bon Chien as the best Flemish/Brown Red Sour I've ever tried (and in the world), but it's there, and honestly beats by far most "real belgian" brown sours. With the Lost Abbey Framboise Amorosa elevates California as a really serious producer of amazing dark sours in general. Awesome stuff... Great Job!

Pours reddish amber with a minimal beige head that fades quickly. Nice vinous aromas with currants and grapes and hints of wood and lactos. Tart attack, nice currants and wood complexity on the palate, finishes dry and tart. Very good. ABUSEDGOAT (2847) - California, USA - AUG 8, 2017

Clear deep red color with a tan head. Fruity aroma of plums and currants. Tart flavors produce hints of oak and tobacco and finishing with a long sherry sweetness. MarcoDL (5375) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2017
