oh6gdx (20946) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2012
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.

On tap at ACBF. Hazy gold beer. No head. Vinegary fruity sourness - a touch overwhelming for my palate. All the wine barrel subtleties are lost in the sourness for me. Alright flavour but the sample was plenty! A whole bottle would give me indegestion!

fiulijn (15330) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier; Assemblage No 1
Dark amber color, hazy; small head.
Aroma of caramel, wood, some sourness, fruits, light vanilla (this mellow trait is unusual in BFM beers), light hazelnutes and a shade of acetone; wine too.
The body is lean and the mouthfeel medium-dry; the flavor is mostly wine, juicy and fresh wines, but with some additional sourness and astringency; light cherry presence; the usual, strong woody character permeates the final; also, there seems to be a light residual sweetness.
Of all BFM beers, probably the one that gets most similar to a wine.
Dynamic, fresh, harmonious. Excellent, again.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Sampled at ACBF 2011. Almost the surprise of the festival for me. Hazy deep orange colour thin collar of near white bubbles. Touch of Airfix glue sour aroma. Sour in mouth. Its good. I mean really good. Some cherry fruit. Not overly sour good balance. But quite aggressive. I like this a lot. Recommended this to many

Travlr (13413) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle at Ebenezer Kezar’s, shared with Niell and Greg. Murky amber color, scant white head. Aroma of sour plums, dates, cherries. Taste is deeply sour, more than it’s age would suggest, and aggressive port wine and stone fruits. Should age well.

TBone (12999) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
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.
