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

Cloudy brown beer. Dry and softish palate. A real gob full is this beer! Soft oaky tones with just a touch of vanilla. Red wine richness. Bubblegum esters and Belgian sweetness. Slight tart fruits. Complex and interesting if not quite as joined up as it could be. Talk about mixing the grape and the grain - induced a foul hangover!

Travlr (21437) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2009
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!!
