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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Goldtwins at PPSG 2010. Pours a hazed light copper with a thinning white head. Aroma is mineral, earth, toast, oak, spices, herbs, grass, old wood and some old fruits. Flavor is almost like unripe mango, green, woody mineral astringency and a slight grapeskin tartness in the end with some orange and apricot fruity esters all around.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
