Beautiful vinous nose, a bit of acidity, lots of bright red fruit. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly tart, some cotton candy and honey, a bit of under-ripe strawberry and cherry, nicely balanced with fresh yogurt and lemon, and some dusty yeast.

750ml bottle shared at a tasting, not sure who brought it. Pours a hazy amber color with a one-finger white head that leaves a thick ring and swirls. Big sour and funky vinous aroma with oak -bal and a good sweet caramel base poking through. On the flavor, what I really get out of it is gruyere cheese fondue with white wine, as crazy as that is. Besides that it’s oaky and funky with sweet caramel and toffee hints. Complex. Smooth and creamy yet mildly acidic and biting on the palate, with soft, rather low carbonation. Really enjoyable brewskarooni they’ve got themselves here. I’m really starting to like the Abbey of Saint Good Dog.

Bottle. Pours relatively flat with thin lightly tan head that’s got loads of big bubbles in it; lightly murky reddish brown hue. Sour and woody aroma with hints of vanilla and vinous characteristics. Flavor is nicely sour, but rounded and not too sharp, but shows up nicely in that department in the finish. Woodiness doesn’t come through in the flavor as much, and I really can’t believe that this is 11%. Very drinkable, and has a medium body that is a bit slick with softer carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Church Key. Pours a little on the flat side, with hardly any head, but the natural sourness and complexity doesn’t degrade the mouth feel. Nose is tart and light, young and complex. Taste is fresh, young, sour, light and tart. Generally quite a light mouthfeel, and hides its ABV excellently. Brilliant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a light hazy reddish/brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of sour notes with oak and vinous notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is a quite complex mix between some sour and vinous notes with some tart oak notes which are trying to hides a sweet Belgian malt bases. Body is full for style with good carbonation and alcohol is very well hidden. Complex mix that is hard to describe but very enjoyable. Hard to decipher all the barrel that were used but very fin nonetheless.
