4.2/5 rDev +9.7%
Bottled beer served in a glass.
Pours a thin, lasting tan coloured head, and presents a cloudy red-amber colour - a hint of wine is evident. Lively effervescence. Plenty of lacing. Some sediment.
Oak, grandpa's homemade red wine, roasted malts, red cabbage, sour cherry, methylated spirits.
Sour cherry, a slight hint of alcohol, earthy Shiraz, oak barrel aged whiskey, dried fruits. Very sour.
Slight effervescence, not overly carbonated. Moderate body, creamy smoothness, clean and refreshing. Quite sour so slower drinking.
Very interesting beer and lots of complexity to explore. There are very strong whiskey and wine flavours in this brew, and lots of fruitiness which makes for a very enjoyable drink. Despite the sourness, and slightly dodgy smell, it was a very enjoyable drink.

definitely the lighter side of the oud bruin genre, much more lemony lacto than dark malt in here. there is almost no roast character to the grain at all, i taste no chocolate malt either, more like a soured copper ale. smells and tastes about the same, less dynamic or intriguing than the other loverbeer stuff, but loaded with sourness. the oak is there in the nose, but it does little to temper the intense lactic acidity in the swallow. grain profile seems too light for the style, and too light for the texture, its maybe a summer oud bruin, if such a thing exists, but i think it lacks a little depth on the malt front, despite tasting delicious. it really pops on the palate too, effervescent carbonation makes it drink right down. lingering dried fruit and oak on the palate is neat for such a light bodied beer too. definitely the most sour beer ive had from loverbeer, but also the least unique. well made, but there are better examples of the style, especially at this price.
