MikeBibere (22) - GREECE - DEC 18, 2016
White label bottle: 18/02/2016. Mahogany Red color with a small beige head that faints quickly but its a natural cause of all the barrel aging in this beer. Complex aromas of red wine, cherries, dark fruits and some vinegar. Medium carbonation, and tart acidity in the mouthfeel.Very complex in taste but artistically balanced. You can definitely see some Pannepot Reserva in it (never had the Earthmonk). A very unique beer that is way ahead of the typical Flemish Sour genre for sure.World Class for me.
