tombyars (1790) - Saltcoats, - MAY 17, 2012
Tasted this in the Delirium Cafe, Brussels in April 2012. 33 cl bottle in a superb tulip shaped glass. Pours a clear dark ruby red with a off white head. Strange sickly sweet aroma with notes of baby vomit and black cherry yoghurt. Smooth milky mouthfeel and superb lacing. Dark malts give a strange range of flavours with sour milk combined with black cherries and mashed bananas. There is a slight suggestion of hops in there but this is difficult to detect. Finish is sweet and malty with just a hint of fruity sourness before the sweet notes smooth everything over in a malt blanket. An interesting type of ale (Flemish Red) and worth trying out. Well recommended.

Bottle from Park Fever, Hither Green. Deep reddish-brown pour with a white head. Nose of sour red berries, redcurrants, acetic acid, varnish, prunes. Flavours of strawberry jam, tart berries, cherry stones, currants. Long sweet/sour finish. Good stuff.

Аромат кислых яблок с оттенком карамели. Тонкая пенка, цвет насыщенный, красно-коричневый. Вкус буквально взрывается во рту при первом глотке, ощущается дикая концентрированная кислота, которая может отпугнуть многих. Также чувствуются сладкие нотки карамели и чернослива. При последующем употребление пиво больше открывает свой вкус, и не так бьет вас своей кислотностью. В целом не лучший Сюр, но попробовать стоит точно.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 uma cerveja Diferente, fermentada no barril, do modo original, lembra um vinho frisante, excelente conjunto. harmoniza com algo mais gorduroso (embutidos, queijos), ou até mesmo uma sobremesa .

exrys (20) - POLAND - JAN 12, 2018
Dużo się w tym piwie dzieje, w smaku lekko kwaśnawe, lekko winne, niewielka goryczka utrzymuje się w gardle przez jakiś czas. Nasycenie słabe, piana szybko opada. Aromat mocno alkoholowy, trochę drażniący.

Appearance: Pours clear dark ruby with a small tan head, with some lacing. 4/5 Aroma: Balsamic vinegar, dark fruits and oak. 8/10 Taste: Cherries and berries, slightly vinegary. Soft and rounded at first with some sweetness, then turns into sharp sourness, tangy, just like a gueuze. The finish has some sweetness to balance the sourness. 8/10 Mouthfeel: Full bodied, very low carbonated. 4/5 Overall 12/20
