Draught. Mustard seeds? Really? Good or bad I didnít seem to notice them at all. For me the aroma and flavor was reminiscent of sour cherries. I also did not notice the 11+ ABV too. Okay.

Bottled at pre-Zythos bash, Alvinne, March 2009. Very murky pale orange colour. Sort of rubbery appley aroma. Almost cider-like. Lots of quite sweet vanilla oak and spirity notes that were rather dominant and didnít seem perfectly integrated into the beer. Some residual sweetness. Didnít really do it for me - possibly a bit green. Maybe one of the few beers that I think I might have appreciated more with some bottle age.

Bottle @ Pre-ZBF. Clear orange pour, no head.
Aroma of hops and wild yeast.
Flavour is sour wild yeast with a bit too sweet champagneish wineish flavour.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml Bottle: Aroma of funk, alcohol, malt, wood, fruit, light apple, and slight vanilla. Poured a muddy amber/brown in color with a small, fizzy, off-white head that disappeared very quickly, but lasted around the edges. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet, medicinal, and alcoholic. Tastes of malt, alcohol, medicine, wood, vanilla, mustard, and some funk. Medium body. Oily texture. Average to slightly lively carbonation. Alcohol, mustard, wood, and medicine finish. Very alcohol hot. Very disappointing.

DBF Goes 20110320 (75 cl bottle): A dark yellow beer, slightly cloudy and hardly ni head (white). A nice aroma which is dominated by alcohol, calvados (apple, distilate), wood and vanille. A slightly sweet taste with a somewhat sharp alcohol, fruitness and some malt.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at pre ZBF at Alvinne 06-03-09 Pours murky golden with a thin white head. Aroma is woody of that there is no doubt and the Calvados ageing is noticeable, as I can just pick an appleyness. Its got quite a tanginess and its really quite interesting but the actual beer seems a little lost. Despite its best efforts to draw me in I never really got on with this beer, but nonetheless am pleased to see beers like this and was glad to have tried it. A7 A3 F5 P3 OV12 3.0

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Bottle, 11.5%. Quite citric and vinous aroma, a bit like white wine. Hazy yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour is quite vinous and grapey. Some citrus. OK refreshing. Vanilla aftertaste.

Bottle at 3rd pre-ZBF. Pours clear orange with no head. Aroma of wine and some oak. Slightly sour flavor with the wine being too much present. Some fruits, slightly bitter finish but also with some sweetness. Too low carbonation. Itís more of a wine than a beer.

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.
