jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle@Home. Not a bad beer if you consider it as just a beer. Baring in mind that it was oak aged and stuff then it’s pretty plain. Lots of sweetness, no complexity.

caesar (4893) - 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.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle from De Bierloods, Adegem. Pours quite clear, shiny orangey amber and has a healthy white head. Fantastic aroma: berries, marzipane, oranges, alcohol, port. Sweeter flavours, dried fruit, very noticeable alchol, orange zest. A bit sirupy texture. All in all, a great late night treat.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2011
(Bottled, 0.75l, 11.5% ABV) Murky orange-brown with a very small head. The Bourgogne barrel is evident in the nose, with grainy-caramely maltiness, dried fruit, and some typical aged Belgian character. Somewhat similar to Stille Nacht. Flavor is even more bourgogney, with grainy-caramely maltiness strongly present, and even some surprisingly fresh, exotic-citrusy fruitiness. Alcohol well hidden. Medium to full body, low CO2, refreshing. A reasonably successful barrel ageing, resulting in a complex and freshly fruity flavor.

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
(75cl bottle) Courtesy of Jonas. Pours a huge frothy, quick dissipating head atop an orange head. Lots of sediment. Very sour with a honey overtone. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

skortila (4424) - 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!

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Taste at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Gathering
Golden, wispy white head. Nose of thin lemon, fruit, alcohol, off notes of sauerkraut. Flavor is similar, more bitterness though the finish and lightly tart cherry backed by some oxidation. Not bad, but never really comes together, and overall, quite messy.
