henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, - OCT 8, 2009
Deep amber body with very little head; Very special flowery medical nose; Extremely special body very very velvet soft, hop bitter and extremely sour strange warm lactic; Very long finish where the acid grows to the extreme, lots of flower aromas, barrel too. Very very strange special and interesting beer.

Thank you Koelschtrinker. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Pre-Borefts Ratebeer Tasting 2016. Sampled after the 2012 Vintage. Dark red amber toffee appearance. Nose is oxidized thinned out, sour oak, red fruit, oxidized cherry,… Too oxidized much like the 2012. Not jam-like sadly unlike a fresh one. Taste is too oxidized, thin acidic wood, oak, leaves, oak, oxidized cherry, oak,… Thinned out body. Still good but nowhere near on par with a fresh one. I miss the jam-like thickness & massive fruit of a fresh one.

SinH4 (3100) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle. Hazy amber color with tan head. Aroma is a more delicate and round version of the Saint Bon Chien how you know it, slightly oxidized. Taste is a bit candied sugar, balanced, a bit oxidized, slightly sour, very refined. A bit too delicate, but very very good!
