Bottled from de Molen. Hazy brownish color, short head. Aroma is vinous, some vanilla, bit malt, bit fruity. Sour taste, fruity. Didnt know it was only 5.5%, was expecting a heavy bomber, as they are usually double barrel oak brewers reserve stuff :P

Bottle. Over-eager to get out of the bottle, the head died down somewhat after a dramatic start. Hazy, red copper colour with some sediment. Intense vinous aroma, quite a bit of woody notes, sour fruit. A lot of berry flavours, strawberries, hints of vanilla, sour fruit, an dry wood, especially towards the finish. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 (Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy darkish amber with a small, firm head. Tart and wineous nose with peachy wild yeast, and a touch of acidity from the grapes. Mildly tart, bretty and fruity flavor with plenty of yeast, a touch of acidity, cloves and some cherries. Almost medium body with low, yet slightly fizzy carbonation. Quite mild and mellow overall, but quite enjoyable. Will cellar the other bottle for some years to let the brettanomyces really kick in. 4264 (Revisit 2013-11-02: Still only mild tartness present. Quite berry-fruity, not very interesting, almost watery. Good, but expected more.)

Churchkey’s menu says "Sour Ale Aged in French Burgundy Wine Barrels w/ Dutch Blue Boskoop Glory Grapes" - so I’m assuming this is it. Poured a brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was sour grape notes, yeasty funk, touch of berry I’d guess. Pretty enjoyable.
