Bottle from Alko Arkadia. Murky reddish, amber color, no head. Tart, strawberry aroma. Medium to full-bodied. Very berryish, strawberry, tart cherries, alcohol. Some red wine notes. Not the best of these BFMs. Too much overriped berries.

Bottle I took to football and beer with Andy, Max, and Paul. Pours a fairly clear amber brown with a touch of white bubbles on the edges, but not much. Big acid and wood, acetone and a touch of white wine. Big and sweet. Sweeter than most of the others that I can recall. Actually tastes a bit different from the other ones that I remember. Warm and a bit boozy, warm wood, tannins, toast into the finish. Lingering light acetone. The Bon Chien vintages always seem to taste fairly similar to me, but this one does stand out a bit. Like the others, I think it would be tough to drink a whole 750 by myself, but they’re fine for sharing with friends.

Hazy, ruddy brown pour with a thin, off white head. Aroma is Full of tart fruit and vinous notes, sweet malt, light, crusty bread, earthy funk and fallen leaves. Flavor is tart and funky up front, with some earthiness, vinous notes, dark fruit, buttery and lightly toasty oak, candi sugar sweetness, vanilla and a nice light booziness. Medium body, sicky, chewy entry, with a gradual fade into a slightly dry and pleasantly pucker inducing tart finish. Pretty freaking delicious, I have never had a sour with an ABV this high, and I have to say I enjoyed it. Like an earthy quad with a nice tart backbone.

0.75 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Brown colour, no head at all, looks like the Finnish homemade low alcohol ale. Taste is in my mouth mainly acid, maybe with a hint of yeast and malts. You need to eat something while drinking this.

Brandman (2310) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Semihazy red brown body, no head at all. Aroma has lots of things, sourness, berries, pink bubblegum, acidic maltiness. Flavour has straigh acidic, apples, vinegar. Quite thick body for such acidic beer. Very nice sour.

Bottled (from alko arkadia, thanks tbone, surprisingly enough bottle 00276). Hazy ambery pale brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is tart wood, some slight sourness as well as some slight berries. Flavour is rather similar with a nice acidicy sourness to it. Mild sweet alcohol as well. Quite pleasantly balanced.

(750ml bottle) cloudy reddish-orange body, wispy light tan bubbles. Nose of rich vinous, wine barrels, nice complexity, mossy, wet barrels. Taste is vinous, super smooth wine barrel, grapes, super complex, delicious and awesome linger.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Murky red-brown body, moderate sized pale brown head, quickly recedes, leaves behind just a little lacing. Profoundly complex with layers of vinous notes--various wine barrels add a bunch of different notes--cherries and other dark fruits are also present along with a healthy dose of musty funk. Medium bodied, fairly slick on the tongue, lingering acidic finish. Impressive.
