330ml bottle into a goblet. Pours a nearly clear medium brown with a smallish half finger tan head. Ok head retention with pretty good lacing. Aroma has quite a bit of tartness and cherries along with some vinegar. Barnyard in the background along with yeast. Of all these aromas, however, tart dark fruit really dominates. The flavor really has a lot going on. Lots of tartness and dark fruit up front but there is a solid powdered cocoa flavor underneath that surprised me a little bit. Barnyard rises quickly next but it remains restrained. Quite acidic all the way through but has a slightly sticky finish. Carbonation is soft and high. Overall, a tasty but not over the top complex brew. It would make a good introduction into the expansive world of wild Belgian beers.

Ciemno-bordowe, nieprzejrzyste piwo. Piana biała, drobna, obfita, po redukcji zostaje na tafli, zostawia średni lacing. W aromacie typowe czerwone wino - głwnie sfermentowane wiśnie. W smaku bardzo kwaśno, ponownie na myśl przywodzi czerwone wino, ocet, lekka słodka, owocowa kontra. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka zerowa, posmak

60minuteman (1648) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Pours cloudy dark amber color. Sweet woody, caramel, floral, spice and plum. Sweet and sticky and sour. Pretty much a great balance if a little too prickly.

aardvark1 (26) - POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Przejrzyste, ciemnordzawe, niska piana. W nosie przede wszystkim czerwone winogrona, lekka kwaśność, lekki rozpuszczalnik, na drugim planie mieszanka czerwonych owocw, zwłaszcza wiśni. Jest mniej kwaśne niż się spodziewałem, rozpuszczalnik na szczęście prawie niewyczuwalny. Bardzo winne i owocowe, trochę słodki posmak. Po ogrzaniu w aromacie mocniejszy rozpuszczalnik, w smaku ujawniają się nuty drewniane, piwo jest bardzo orzeźwiające.
