De couleur orange tirant sur le rouge sombre, tres grosse carbo et collet persistant de grosses bulles. Aromes acide de vinaigres et de fruits rouges comme la cerise. Je mattendais a plus dacidit en attaque et bien non elle arrive au final... Note boises dues au viellissement en fut. Mais cela nest pas dans la demesure, et meme si ce style de biere est plus exigeant et ne peu pas plaire a tout le monde (moi compris) je reste agreablement surpris.

not generally my favourite style. Nice sour winey nose. Taste is full, not overly sour but a slight underlying sour taste. Good mouth feel, smooth and rich, Ok would not turn one down but wouldnt seek it out either.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Barwa ciemno rubinowa z ladnie krazkujaca piana. Aromat winny owocowy. W smaku winne, owocowe, musujace, kwaskowe, delikatne. Przyjemnie sie pije ale jak dla mnie to idzie w strone wina musujacego.

Butelka 0.25L.
Wygląd: Miedziane, klarowne. Obfita, kremowa piana, średnio i wielkopęcherzykowa. Szybko redukuje się do 2mm i lekko firankuje.
Aromat: Kwaśno słodki, owocowy i dziki. Najbardziej z owocw wyczuwalna brzoskwinia. Po zamieszaniu i lekkim ogrzaniu pojawia się intensywna farba emulsyjna. Trochę nut stajennych i octowych.
Odczucie: Wysycenie wysokie, ciało średnie, faktura musująca i lekko cierpka.
Smak: Słodkie i kwaśne zarazem. Lekko dzikie, końska derka, zbożowe, chlebowe i tostowe. Farba emulsyjna, owoce- rodzynki, figi i śliwka. Goryczki nie ma wcale.
Całość: Jak piłem poprzednim razem to nie czułem intensywnej farby emulsyjnej, ktra tutaj zdecydowanie przeszkadza. Do tego za słodkie.

rotaman14 (570) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2015
Smells like young red wine mixed cleaning agent. Nice sour-sweet taste, with hints of cinammon, berries, brown sugar. Very much reminds me of that one faro I drank some time ago. Slick medium body, fizzy carbonation. This isnt going to be to everyones liking, but I enjoyed it once I looked past the peculiar aroma.

Brown ruby-tinged beer, small tan head. Nose is acidity, vinuos notes, yeast, dark fruits. Flavor is balsamic vinegar, dark fruits, some bready sweetness. Acidic and vinous finish. A bit too much vinegar for me, although the sweetness balances that out somewhat.

Bottiglia 33cl @ la pausa. Marrone con schiuma non troppo persistente. Aceto e dolce, un po stucchevole
