MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
translucent dark red, thin cream white head. Nose is sweet, heavy cherry with light Cinnamon and faint squash. Flavor similar but less spice, more cherry dominance, bit sticky and lightly seedy in lengthy finish. Too thin, needs more carb. Nice, spiced nose, flavor could use a bit more variation, bit of oak in finish.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2011
Bouteille 75cl, 63/250, lot 391, bb fev 2015. Couleur rougeâtre/rubis, mousse beige. Arôme a de profondes notes de cerises tout en gardant cet aspect de fût de Bourgogne. L’aigreur des cerises se ressent ainsi que le boisé qui st évoqué par le chêne. En bouche, une bière facile à boire de 5.5% avec une couche de cerises acidulées qui n’est pas trop désagréable au palais, une fine carbonation qui se mélange au bois et un du Bourgogne qui reste bien en retrait tout en laissant une fin de touche de vignoble. Mon seul regret pour cette bière reste un peu le mutisme du fût de Bourgogne qui a un peu dur à se faire présent.

Draft at Max’s. Bright red pour with an orange tint. Slightly opaque. Sour aroma with oaky notes. Creamy and vanilla. Dry tart flavor with lemon and citrus peel. Tartness lingers on the back of the throat. Nice easy to drink beer.
