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.

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.

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.
