TAP X Scheider Weisse Aventinus Cuvée Barrique

Pour is a muddy brown as one would expect with the kind of head that one might initially expect. Mocha and high. After the initial pour the lace disappears completely and it becomes rather flat.

For all intents and purposes this is a Flemish red in terms of the taste profile which, given the label and the contents, is pretty shocking. Aventinus (the original) is essentially missing, and that’s a shame.

A lot of sour cherries and cranberries in there with a few green apple hints.

I dunno, I just don’t really see th point of turning Aventinus into a completely new beer. It’s magnificent on its own, and then there are a ton of other Flemish reds that do a job in other categories. Why?

It’s pretty much 100% barrique character, and thus could have been a homebrew
originally for all I know.
