16 November 2019. At 4de Gentse Bierquiz. Cheers to Anke & Pieter! Hazy red with a completely thinning, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of redcurrant, brambles, yoghurt, strawberry, lemon, wheat. Taste is sour redcurrant, strawberry, apple, bit sweetish, thick wheaty base; tart wheaty & lemony finish, soft red fruit, perhaps a tad woody. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Just okay.

Hazy purpley colour with thin head. Aroma has blackberries. Taste is quite dry. Cherry pits? Full bodied.

18/VIII/19 - 12Fl. Oz. can from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ Gents Bierfestival, BB: n/a - (2019-1271)
Little cloudy red beer, small creamy white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots and lots of diacetyl, some yoghurt, very dirty, rancid butter, slightly fruity, some berries, but in general very very bad. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: metallic, soft acidity, fruity, bit lemony, citrus, some red berries. Wow, where's all that diacetyl gone? Aftertaste: lots of raspberries, bitter, dry, bit metallic. Very weird how smell and flavour are completely different.

Small pink head over an unclear carmosine to terra cotta beer. Nose of diacetyl a mile out; combined with the cherry aroma like a fruit yoghurt. Acidity with lactic acid and a tad of acetic, yoghurt, milkferments... and diacetyl. Finish has a bit metallic hint. Thick because of the off-products, bit it's decent. Meuhh... diacetyl.

Deep ruby and hazy colour, small pinky head. Blackberries, red berries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Berryish, tartish flavour. No cedar but blackberries, red berries and some limey tartness. Decent & OK.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/10/2019. Pours moderately hazy deep ruby red/pink/purple color with a 1 finger dense and rocky light pink head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy blackberries, limes, fruit skin/seeds, citrus zest, lemon, orange, peach, plum, pear, apricot, red/green apple, red grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, and biscuit dough; with light notes of toast, cedar, peppercorn, lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of blackberry, lime, fruity/acidic yeast, pale/wheat malt, and light cedar spiral notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy blackberries, limes, fruit skin/seeds, citrus zest, lemon, orange, peach, plum, pear, apricot, red/green apple, red grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, and biscuit dough; with light notes of toast, cedar, peppercorn, lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and light yeast/cedar spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of blackberries, limes, fruit skin/seeds, citrus zest, lemon, orange, peach, plum, pear, apricot, red/green apple, red grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light cedar/pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of blackberry, lime, fruity/acidic yeast, pale/wheat malt, and light cedar spiral flavors; with a great malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with no puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering tartness and tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/grainy, fairly acidic/tangy, and lightly tannic mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is an awesome fruited kettle sour. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of blackberry, lime, fruity/acidic yeast, pale/wheat malt, and light cedar spiral flavors; very smooth and pretty refreshing to drink with mellowly acidic/tangy/drying finish. Great soft feel, and not overly lactic. Awesomely balanced between juicy/jammy fruit, Lacto complexity, and pale/wheat malts against acidity. Not a ton of cedar, but noticeable. Lightly sweet with lingering dryness. A really enjoyable offering, and impressive style example as expected of the brewery.
