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.)

Bottle at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Nice rounded aroma with clearly some fresh grapes and red wine. Still very well balanced and only slightly sour and somewhat sweet. Very nice brew.

Bottle at Het Oude Schooltje, thanks to Dale. It pours hazy dark red-brown, with a thick off-white head. The nose is sour Granny Smith apple, tart lemon, wild strawberry and bret. yeast. The taste is juicy tart cherry, strawberry, raspberry, red grape, Granny Smith apple, farmyard and wood with a long tart finish. Not overly complex, but very drinkable stuff.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle. Amber color. Vinous aroma with vanilla, grapes and cherry. Light sour flavor with grapes, vanilla, just a touch of oak and toffee. Vinous notes. First rate thirst quencher, but not as complex and sour as I thought it would be.
