Nice wine red color with a colorful head...oak and wildness.. great sour tones and some caramel sweetness... complex taste.. lacks body and finish longevity

gEUS (1020) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2014
660 ml bottle at home. Pours deep ruby red brown, nice yellow beige steady head. Rather than a strong ale, this is in the nose and the taste a sour/red-brown ale. The nose reveals refined aromas of bready malt, salted caramel, plums and raisins. Sweet sour body with fine wine taste and tannines from the bordeaux barrels. A very nice sour brown ale.

Fin (7343) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgium Fridah 7th February consumed at home Thursday 20th February 2014 Pours brown, bit murky and flat as a witches tit, not really a looker if truth be told. Wine and oak flow forth from the nose, soft with sweetened mild balsamic qualities. Soft in mouth, alcohol does show but in a good way, supping this listening to Sandy Denny on Marc Riley on Radio 6. Like this, its got a warm wet oakiness its a little sour, nice fruity finish, yes its quite nice. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2014
Sample draft @ BAB’14. Trouble brun foncé, col épais beige le tout laissant un doré au verre. Arôme est léger avec un bouquet malté légèrement boisé. Palais est malté, note légère de chêne, notes d’épices, note très peu le côté de St Emilion. Côté aigrelet subtil avec un boisé modéré ponctué par ce sempiternel profil de Mopheus. Je note peu en terme d’ajout du vin. Dommage car je retrouve vraiment pas le profil original de Balthazar notamment au niveau des différentes épices.

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2014
Sampled draft @ Brugs Bier Festival 2014. Murky dark brown, only bubbles for a head. Sugary sweet nose, maple, Alvinne yeast, sticky sweet wine, dark fruits. Sugary, brown sugar sweet, boozy, maple, oaky, thick. Flat. Not bad but could have been way better I think. I rated the regular quite a bit higher.

Small cream head over deep reddish brown ale. Acids (lactic, hint at acetic), old wet wood. Sweet! Strange - acids arriving in the aftertaste. Finish has a wry flavour of woodtoner. Some fruity esters, all the same. Well-bodied, oily to viscous. Long-lasting ketonic aftertaste with more acids, and always wood. Special - for the die-hards!

50cl, as Balthazar Oak Aged (gerijpt op Tour Baladoz wijnvaten), new exclusive brew Anno 2014, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex brew, spicy/vinous and slightly alcoholic/woody, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, good Winter brew, yet expensive!
