2011 swing top bottle. Pours murky reddish brown with zero head. No lacing. Aroma is malt, dark fruit, a bit of sour. Taste is surprisingly sour with a great rye spice. A bit too syrupy. But a pleasant delight after reading other reviews.

Swing top bottle pours a dark brownish amber with some light tan bubbles for a head. Aroma is sticky caramel and toffee and really smells like Halloween candy corn in a good way. Taste is picking up a lot of sour cherries, slight rum behind the sour, with some rye and caramel malt. I wasn’t sure about this one the first few sips but and interesting a growing enjoyable as a Cuvee Barley Wine mix.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 The aroma is mostly sour with sweet over ripe fruit, oak, and plastic. The appearance is deep maroon with no head. The taste is like the aroma and quite hard to drink. The palate is thick from viscosity but completely flat. Overall I can’t stand it. It’s a flat sour beer the only nice thing is the slight sweet rum but nearly impossible to finish. As a matter of fact I can’t. Drain pour.

Bottled. Poured deep garnet with no head sticking around. The aroma picked up sour, darker fruits, raisins, and oak smacked with a major dose of cherry skins.. came across like a Flemish sour with too many other sugars in it. The flavor was sour throughout, with lots of cherry dust and oak.. some darker fruit sweetness as well, but the sourness dominated.. finished sour and belly-warming.. tasty, but it took a long time to grow on me. Medium-bodied with very little carbonation on the palate.. tart and sour throughout.. OK feel, but not great.

33cl swing top, thanks Rémi for hauling it from Switzerland. Cuivrée, col beige fin disparaissant vite et ne laissant que qcq fines bulles disparates. Arôme garde ce bouquet typique de BFM de la série St Bon Chien, un funk et une aigreur se font noter mais le tout est accompagné par une certaine douceur de fruits noirs et malt. Note aussi un léger côté boisé avec le rhum qui reste en retrait. Palais est ici aussi plus à l’avantage de la signature BFM, le tout restant aigre-doux pour une effervescence faible. Pointe d’épice, fruits noirs, le tout est assez huileux avec le boisé qui reste moyen rajoutant une fine pointe d’épice. Seigle est également discret ne contribuant pas plus que cela au profil de cette bière. Au final, bière bizarre qui pour moi essaie de mélanger deux style; barley wine et sour sans vraiment convaincre.

I’ve had this beer twice now thanks to Darrell and Michael. The beer appears murky and dark brown / ruby in color. The head is nonexistent. The beer appears still. The aroma offers booze, wood, sour cherries, malt, yeast,a bit of funk. I like the flavor. Complex and tasty, with sour, funky cherries and oak leading the charge. A nice mix of sweet and sour. Light in body and devoid of carbonation, though it fits this beer pretty well. Tannic in nature with a bit of a sharp, harsh alcohol burn in the throat at the conclusion of every sip. Still, overall, this was intriguing and enjoyable, albeit in small quantities. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-12-2012

Gift from SJ. A full bodied barley wine with notes of wood tart / sour and caramel. A sharp vinegaress bite at the end. Odd, but enjoyable.

Pours a flat ruby brown. Smell is subtle sour fruit, wood. Taste is initially sweet fruit with sour/tart hitting the palate quickly after, boozy oak in the finish. Full body, no carbonation, very interesting.

It poured a cloudy ruby color with no head. The aroma was slightly sour with notes of fruit and some wood. The taste was slightly sour with notes of fruit, wood, rum and a hint of hops. The alcohol was very well hidden.
