Shared with Lupuloadicto. Red/amberish colour with an off-white head with good lasting. Aroma is very fruty, fresh and acidic. Flavor is quite similar as aroma, with red fruits notes, currants and berries are present, slightly hints of wood. The final is acidic with a good duration and maintaining fruity notes.

emacgee (4136) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours a soft and cloudy red orange with a one finger head. Really nice nose, sour cherry and cherry pit upfront. Lactic acidity and a touch grainy with light apple skins. Very nice acidity to the flavor, prominent but soft on the edges. Tannic wood. Some cherry notes. Medium light body and crisp.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier
From an undisturbed bottle it pours a hazy dark red-amber color, with small compact head, lasting longer than usual. The aroma is deep, intense, spreading in the room; it’s vinous, woody, mildly sour, with notes of nuts; very light acetone in the end.
Full bodied, the mouthfeel is very smooth; malt flavor, with moderate residual sweetness, and a lovely accent of grapes and wine (muscatel like); fruity, with some wood and therefore light astringency; some berries too appear in the final.
Excellent beer. Once more. Fresh and dynamic.
Note: my bottle too has 00276 on it, so probably it’s not the bottle number ;-)

Huhzubendah (2650) - Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2013
Nov. 2012 On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is dark ruby to auburn in color with a small, bubbly head. The aroma is bold and complex, offering booze, grapes, oak, funk, lacto and acetic presence, bourbon, tart fruit, syrup. Wow. The flavor is assertive and complex. The grappa seems to come through more than the other barrels. The beer leads off with an alcoholic sweetness and prominent liquor, then finishes with a tart and sour combo. Cherry presence, even cherry cough syrup, in the best possible way. This beer runs the gamut of flavor profiles. Sticky and palate coating. A beer to sip and savor. I could have sipped this all night, but alas, one snifter was all I could manage on this occasion. I would definitely have / buy this again. Recommended.

Bottled@vPBFII. Hazy orangeish colour, small white head. Aroma is tart wood, some yeast, caramel and some spices. Flavour is very similar. And strangely enough it seems infected sour to me in the flavour.

Aroma has vinegar, sour cherries and earthy notes. Flavour is quite tart with wood, oaky notes, currant juice and currants. Too much juice here.
