Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
The burgundy barrel-aged Melchior, with cream white, coarse, milky head and deep copper colour like the other Melchiors, hazy with large protein flakes. Strong fruity aroma of peach, apple sauce, brown sugar, cognac, mint, liquorice, cinnamon, oak, grapes, rosewater. Mellow sweet fruity taste, apple, grape, full caramelly and honeyish maltiness with complex spicy notes, woody finish with floral hops and warming, brandy-like alcohol, long and dry. Great, but somehow I found the bourbon aged version a bit better.

A clear golden/amber colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma is fruity and malty, winery. some sweet. The taste of wood with fruits, like grapes with alcohol. The aftertaste is bittersweet with hints of alcohol.

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.

jerohen (2077) - 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.

Eye: amber - slightly ruby red Nose: Gentle yet full bodied impression in the nose (due to alcohol?). Nice tint of wood, with nice and warm wood hints Mouth: a full and warm beginning, sweet in the mid-bridge , gentle bitter at the end - alcohol is present all the way
