Thick foamy caramel colored head with a very sour, wine-like aroma, which is not surprising as it was aged in wine barrels. Beer is a cloudy caramel color. Sweet flavor with woody overtones. A heavier mouthfeel than normal.

johnnnniee (2233) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On tap at The Lion’s Pride. Comes to the table a slightly hazy deep amber/copper color with a nice sized fluffy off white head that displays nice retention and lots of lace. Smells of caramel, sugar, perfume, nuts, oak, and alcohol. It’s an odd nose that’s for sure. Light fruity and sugary flavor with a bit too much alcohol heat. Fruity, oaky, red wine vinous with a hint of oily nuts. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sugary vinous mouthfeel. Its a bit weird, but it really grew on me as I worked my way through the glass.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Spicy aroma, with citrus and lavender. The flavor has floral and herbal notes with a light fruity sweetness. Nice.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2011
In short: A sweet caramelized vinous beer. Just ok
How: From a bottle at Mondial de la Bière 2011
The look: Clear dark amber body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is a bit vinous, a bit spicy and some iced-tea. Taste is toasted sweet malts, sticky caramel, vinous undertones, red and dark fruits, spicy herbal hops and wooden hops. Not bad but somehow this one just didn’t work well for me. While drinking that beer I kept changing my mind whether I liked it or didn’t like it, not because I have a fucked-up mind, my mind is actually like nice music, but my head is an iPod on shuffle mode.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2011
A hazed dark reddish brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, a strange iodine vinous malt, with thyme and Italian herbs. In mouth, a short explosion of sweet candy sugar, thyme, lactic acids, raspy notes, interesting. Bottle at Mondial 2011, June 9, 2011.

JorisPPattyn (7814) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2011
My bottle claims 9.6% Hazy red-amber beer with a good beige head. Very vinous, woody & liqueurish nose, runny cheese. Sweet, but also faint bitter-sourish taint; lots of cherries and vinous together. Lighter than expected for its ABV. Very smooth. Alcoholwarming, orangepeel in the aftertaste. Extremely vinous, characterfull beer. Mille grazie to the brewer!
