this recent haul of loverbeer has been awesome, i wish they gave a little more information on the packaging, such as which grape varietals are in this beer? a red variety or two no doubt, but thats all we know, and we only learn that from the pink cloudy hue of this beer. a nose a little perfume heavy like the plum one, but with a lot more of the wild yeast evident right up front. not fruity at all really, maybe just delicate fruit character, but grape is not readily apparent. musty yeast, very wild, similar but lighter than the other beers I've had from these guys. the grapes are a little winey in the taste, and its all on the front end, while the weird yeast is all towards the finish. it never gets sour, not even tart really, but its farmy and animalistic and seemingly ancient. i really like that its a little peppery, a little fruity, and just so different. a cool way to finish an already unique beer. carbonation is really prominent, and the bubbles are enormous, giving it a real lively feel. still creamy in texture though, never feels like soda or anything. dynamic layering of old world flavors in a beautifully executed beer. my only real issue with it is its price. can't afford to drink beer like this real often, but wow is this one a treat!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

750ml bottle purchased in Rome.

A: Pours a reddish auburn with a frothy beige head.

S: Pretty funky aroma. Mild acetic acidity, horseblanket, cherry-like sweetness.

T: Taste brings very gamey brett, light vinegary tartness, a bit grapey, some caramel maltiness.

M: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: This is a very funky beer, with the brett almost out of control. A bit more refinement would be good here.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a hazy red with a small amount of off-white head. Just a ring around the edge of the glass retains, leaving minor lacing.

S: Tart and lightly sweet, with notes of sour cherry.

T: Medium sweetness, with a light candied cherry note. Slightly tarter through the finish.

M: Medium to light body, medium carbonation.

Overall, nice, interesting, and also refreshing. The 8% is mostly hidden.
