Wow. Fantastic. Brings a liqueur touch. Maybe a little overwhelming on my palate at this point in the evening. Doesn’t really strike me as "Belgians"..a creature unto itself. Hardcore barrel treatment. Tasty, brutal spirit/beer hybrid.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Aroma has mustard, oak and calvados apples. Hazy, golden coloured beer with a lasting, white head. The taste is vinous, has apples, some spice and yeast. Better than expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle from Leuken’s Oldsmar. Pours a hazy yellow with orange highlights and a swirl of white head. Nose is sweet malt, mustard, cognac, some barnyard, and some booze. It has distinct sour qualities to it that make me think it might have brett, but after exploring the beer a bit more, I believe it is more of the combination of the barrel with the mustard seed. Flavor is musty, malt, bretty quality, oak, cognac, and some tartness/ vinous quality. Calvados is nowhere near as pronounced as I anticipated for the stamp on the bottle. More cognac than calvados comes through. Light to medium-bodied and a strange take on this one.

Bottle - Sweet apple and light barrel notes. Cloudy gold with no head. Apples and some oak notes. More like a boozy cider. Not a fan.

The aroma is alcoholic with malt and a hint of mustard and earth. The taste is like the aroma with the mustard in the finish. The appearance is golden. Overall interesting and it’s one of those beers that grows on you.

Bottle... Poured hazy golden with a white head. Barf-like, solvent, chemical with some hard liquor and even a scotch-like tone. Some funk and a hot finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks mom. Pours a slightly cloudy straw amber with one finger of off-white head. Nose is lightly acidic with a large brett presence, pineapple and fresh cut citrus. Flavor is really nice, very dry and citrusy. Zesty with fresh pineapple and heavy brett influence. Lightly tannic and cider, definitely an apple component to this. Uber interesting.

750, oof this is 11%. No mustard seeds, but i guess thats not a bad thing. A thin boozy lame subpar Belgian strong. Barrels do nothing to improve this. not impressed. That said, nothing really offensive to warrant a lower rating.
