3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
7/17/12. 750mL bottle. Hazed, rich amber pour with a small, frothy khaki head that’s gone fast and barely laces. Rich aroma with vanilla, cream, oak, leather, funk, licorice, and mint. Rich cherry flavor with lots of tartness, harsh oak and earthy leather tones on top of some dirt and vinegar. Interesting and tasty but I wonder what this would be like with some time on it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a beautiful beer. From bottle No. 00276. Pours a deep amber red color with a really nice looking beige head, that stay nicely. Aromas for dry red fuits, berries, malts and notes of oaks. Complex flavors of dry red fruits, apples, light woody notes. Nice dry sourness, reminds me of some great lambics. Nice complex evolving and long lasting taste. Very enjoyable.
Had the 2009, and this 2011 is just as nice, very top consistant Swiss Ale. Can’t wait to try other BFM.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the mekong beers gone wild. Side by side with the 07 and 09. This was the Mildest of all but was still good. All the normal "sour" qualities and "bon chief-ness". My least favorite of the three.
