0,75l bottle at home. deep red color, small pink head. smells of cherries, marzipan, light oxidation, raspberries, funky, grassy, spices. very nice smell. light to medium body, soft carbonation. tastes of cherries, citric, grassy, some raspberries, oak, nutty, marzipan. finishes lightly dry and lightly sour with notes of cherries, marzipan and raspberry notes. yeah, this is lovely, very different from most modern Hommage blends. This is light in ABV, yet still has a lot going for it. Also not the lactic bomb which seems to be more and more common. Raspberries are there, but also not dominating. Great stuff.
Sampled @2022 . Pours a dark orange-red. Taste is mushrooms, mild red fruityness, intense acetic acid - yet still OK. Taste is full, funky, intense complexity. Aged red candy, milder - way milder - acetic acid than expected from the nose. Quite balanced at this point in time. Lovely !
21 August 2021. At Gents Bierfestival. Cheers to the Ghent beer crew! 18/19, blend No° 57. Hazy red, no head. Strong aroma of raspberry, unripe strawberry, lemon peel, sour cherry, sour plum, vinegar, grapes. Taste has very sour plum, raspberry & lemon acid, funky straw, softly lactic-yoghurty but leaning more towards sourdough. Tart, acidic, fruity finish, very sour red fruits, plum, some woody tannins with an earthy rhubarb note. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Very complex, rich in fruitiness with the right amount of 'wildness'T. Excellent.
Bottle pour at St Gambrinus. Pours hazy bright red pink. Raspberry, funk, acid, sweet raspberry, bright berry jam notes, blackberry, barnyard, red wine vinegar, tannic, bright funk rather than barnyard, thyme, vanilla, oak, biscuit, lemon juice, berry finish. Medium body with a creamy carbonation. Phenomenal.
Bottle at home. Deep red with quick fizz. Loads of jammy rasberries in the aroma, some cherries and marzipan too. Taste is very sour. Raspberry balsamic, tart cherries and red currants. Too sour for me.
Red with little white head. Rich cherries and marzipan, some metallic/blood iron-like note, warm hay funk. Over medium sour with sweet raspberry fruity tip. Lots of mineral, medium body and average carb.// Ooh! More raspberries by the minute! 😍
Hazy red with a small short lived pink head. Big fresh and tart raspberry aroma with a light funk. Flavour is moderate to heavy sour, a little to far on the sour side. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
