Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 10, 2013
As perfect a sour beer as I've ever encountered, the rich ruby color pairs with a gorgeous creamy head, offering a medley of sour fruit flavored to the palette - apples, pears and cherries all make appearances. The taste is crisp, and the aftertaste is a perfect mirror of the initial flavors. This beer was my introduction to Belgian sours, and I've been chasing this dragon ever since. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kwas co sie zowie. w aromacie i smaku drewno, ocet winny, wiśnie, kompot wiśniowy. Slodkie po chwili mocno kwasne, orzezwiajace- zdecydowanie moje klimaty, wyraziste i robiace na mnie lepsze wrazenie niz nowy artrezan chateu.

Wiśnie, delikatna kwasność, trochę za duża słodycz, ciemne owoce. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

This may change my mind on Sours. Most complex beer Ive ever had the pleasure of trying. How many different sensations can you get out of one beer! Fantastic!

Niet mijn ding. Proeft naar geuze. Veel te zuur naar mijn smaak. Flesje weggegoten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 15, 2017 Birra flamish a mio parere spettacolare. Aroma dolciastro con spunti di acidulo. S, ma un acetato leggero e di classe. Mai invadente. Schiuma pi che cremosa aspetto piuttosto limpido, con ampi spazi di luce passanti. Gli aromi variano dai frutti a bacca rossa specie amarene sciroppate, a tratti mele verdi, e uva sultanina. Mix di sensazioni gradevoli fruttate al palato e bollicine di risalita nella norma. Gusto rotondo con chiare percezioni di dolce, vanigliato a tratti, e acidulo nel finale. Amaro praticamente nullo e persistenza gusto-olfattiva breve (5/6 secondi). Birra pi che piacevole. Abbinata a sapori forti (gorgonzola, nduja calabrese, lupini locali) da un mix di gusti di notevole rilevanza. Unaltra please!

Pours a nice amber color with off white head. Tart cherry aroma. Sweet cherry with a light funk through the middle and a light tart finish. Notes: on tap at the Flying Saucer KC (Apr 17)

Barwa burgundowa (a jakże), Aromat wiśniowy, winny, drewniany. W smaku końska derka, wino, wiśnie, suszone owoce, wino. Wszystko bardzo intensywne. Można się delektować.
