Bottle at Peter’s RBSG. Pours a cloudy pineapple orange, headless. Aroma is bubblegum, cat piss, and lemon. Fortunately, there’s no cat piss in my mouth: flavor of lemon, bubblegum, and apple cider. Some spice in the finish. Some good qualities mixed with some overdone yeast.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle poured by Glenn at the brewery - thanks Glenn!
Bright orange color with a slight rim of bubbles and moderate lacing.
Aroma of light bourbon, caramel and butterscotch.
Flavor begins on the sour side, then progresses to orange peel and coriander. Bourbon taste is subtle, mostly near the finish.
Nicely complex, and decent body, better than the non-oak version.
Very nice indeed. We had the last bourbon bottle, sorry!!

Tasted at the first, great, Borefts Beer Festival 2009 @ De Molen. Amber colored brew. Very nice aroma of bourgogne wine. Flavor has got the vinous tones too, some sweetness, fruits and a bit oaky. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of ChristianScheffel. An almost clear, golden beer with a white head. Alcohol, sweetness and honey on the nose, not particularly interesting. Sweet flavor with some honey, hops in the background. Warming, full-bodied and well-carbonated. Sweet, honey finish with some alcohol and bitterness. The beer doesn’t present itself as very balanced, probably not the best beer to barrel. 090822
