Bottle at our buds new house, Kevin well done. Poured clear reddish brown, almost no carbonation. Nose is oaky, vanilla, almost Flemish brown, red wine notes. Lots of the same on the palate with some acidity in the finish. Maybe a little flat but still a hell of a sour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Original brew, in a series of vintages, this one matured in a combination of no less than 11 wine barrels; essentially a ’massive ale’ in abbey beer form, but the wine barrels render it ’oaky’ and sourish, reminiscent of a ’versnijbier’ or even an ’oud bruin’. Off-white, thin and unstable head on a misty bronze beer; smells of caramel, red wine, yoghurt, passion fruit, bread, blackcurrant; very fruity taste with an explicit, drying lactic acidity that carries on till deep into the finish, soft maltiness, a bit oily mouthfeel, woody. Interesting, especially since it’s Swiss, but I guess this is only truly enjoyable to those who prefer the sour beer types.
