yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2009
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

jerohen (2169) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2009
Tasted at 1st Borefts Beer Festival, Bodegraven. Amber coloured. Fruity notes, a bit sour. Better than the bourbon barrel version. And that’s about all my notes say.

Fin (9564) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Pours orange/amber with a white head. The alcohol is quite heavy and this is a little sweet. Bit fruity with the wine cask influence a touch muted, I might have got a little woodiness I’m not entirely sure. A6 A3 F7 P4 Ov13 3.3

Bottle @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours lightly muddy orange-yellow with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Nice lacings. Aroma has grapes, apple, quite a vinious note and lots of sweet, sticky malts. Medium carbonation, nice fat mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly fruity, oak, dry, light vinious, sweet malts, grapes and apples. Finishes with fine green apple zestiness.

75cl bottle. Thanks Christian Scheffel. Pours cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Sweet malty and oaky nose. A bit of yeast. Overall sweet fruity and oaky flavor. Medium and smooth palate. Tasty but not overly complex as hoped for.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of ChristianScheffel. Hazy amber golden with tiny floating impurities and an off-white head. Sweet yet unclean fruity aroma. Full-bodied, a little low in carbonation, honey, fruit and flower notes. Distinct alcohol in the finish. Not sure that Melchior is all that suited for barrel aging. 220809

skortila (5272) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2009
Bottled. Aroma has sugar, some red wine, mustard. Cloudy, yellow coloured beeer with a thin head. The taste is a bit sweet, slightly sour, has fruitiness, some hint of wood, wine, caramel and hops. Bit weird but quite tasty!

caesar (6642) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy golden color, short head. Aroma is slight sour of mustard, candy sugar, red wine notes, malty. Slight sweet and sourish taste, very strange combination. But I must say the original Melchior was strange but nice, and for this one exactly the same. The barrel aged gives the beer that extra bite and body.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
The color is warm golden with a little floating sediment. The aroma has notes of wood, red wine, raisin and fruit. The sweet flavor has notes of malt, candu sugar, raisin, red wine, wood, alcohol and grapefruit.
