Bottle. [thank you, Harrisoni]
Pours lightly hazy copper-red with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has some tart fruit notes, clear green grapes, oak, red wine, light raspberries and a touch of caramel. Highish carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly tart, some caramel, lots of oak, good fruitiness, grapes, peach. Light lemony and very dry finish. Fine, but it might have fared better with another percent in alcohol?

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
It floods out of the bottle upon opening and the beer is unclear copper-orange-golden. The aroma is sour with notes of yeast, fruit and wood. The flavor is like sour wine and vinegar with notes of wood and fruit, and the finish is tart. Sounds worse, but it’s kind of OK.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2009
2009-08-01. Hazy pastel golden body body, modest beige head. (3+) Interesting aroma, fruit/wood/bourbon? (6+) Flavour is a bit muddled, light sour touches, wood, mild malt is odd. Average palate. Meh. Okay, but muddled at times, doesn’t come together very well at times. Bottle at BCTC

JorisPPattyn (9530) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2009
Good dark, off-white head, creamy, over well-carbonated, amber-orange beer. Alcohol and fusels, vanilla, even to the impression of ice cream, and fresh, new oak. Vanilla, fresh greenery, enhanced by very obvious carbonation. Fruity finish, with strawberry, apples, raspberry and more vanilla - anything but grapes, it seems. Quite OK body for the ABV, on the verge of overcarbonated, which is kind of strange for a B-A beer. Nice, drinkable.
