Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy copper colour, lively head. Intense vinegary oaky nose. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Intense wood, vinegar and red berries. Peppery sour finish. Intense and superbly flavourful.

Une bouteille de 750ml version 2012. Numéro 0276. Liquide brun orange avec une mousse brune. Un nez acide, fruité de cerise au chocolat. L’acidité, je le répète est marquée. Le bois est bien présent, un boisé de vin rouge et de raisins frais. La bouche ne manque pas de caractère acide et vinaigré. L’alcool est bien intégré mais la finale est courte. Les saveurs de chocolat boisé marquent le pas vers une finale abrupte pour les papilles et pour le portefeuille car cette bière est chère.

Cette bouteille de 75 cl porte le numéro 276. Le liquide qu’elle renferme est ambré. Il n’y a pas de mousse dans mon verre. Le nez est plutôt agréable avec ses notes de chêne, son raisin, ses fruits divers et ses parfums aigres et doux. La bouche est vinaigrée (petites notes balsamiques), poussiéreuse, finement chocolatée, fruitée, boisée et épicée. Au palais, le liquide montre un corps plutôt mince avec des bulles bien piquantes et une texture huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes fruitées et aigres qui assèchent considérablement tous les éléments de ma cavité buccale. Selon moi, cette bière qui ne fait jamais ses 11% est loin d’être exceptionnelle.

Tap @ Chez Moeder Lambic. Dark amber color. Citruis, plums and mango in the aroma. Malty soursweet flavor with citrus, plums, red fruit. Fairly complex, some dry out effect, perhaps from oak aging. The slightest hint of vanilla. Warming but well integrated alcohol. The aroma is still a bit rough.

Draft. Smells tart and sour. Taste isn't as smooth as I'd thought t would be. This is again like drinking a liquid sweet tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Flasche @ CH-Dez13) Es hat eine kastanienbraune Farbe, ist leicht trüb mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist fruchtig-sauer, fast wie Kirsche und Rinde. Der Geschmack ist wie das Aroma, medium bodied, leicht adstringent und etwas sauer. Der Nachgeschmack ist fruchtig-sauer.

Serving: Growler from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy red color with no head. Sour cherry nose. Tart cherry, grape skins, and a hint of cider vinegar flavor with a touch of funk and a slight frontal sweetness. The high abv is completely hidden. Solid brew.

have always said the Bon Chien beers are better fresh, i mean they do age well, but having this on tap really shows how nice this stuff is without a lot of age .. . cherry skin and raging clue .. . no dirt, just mild tang .. . very good .. . had a full glass at the Nobi thanksgiving party, only customer there, good times! .. . . The bandage was wound around the wound.

Tap at Armsby Abbey, good stuff, deep garnet pour with mostly no head, taste is plenty of wood and drying sourness, pinches your mouth with tartness, and big ABV at 11% really packs some heat.

Pours a nice light red with a thin head that receeds into a small rim but still leave nice and joyous white speckles on the glass walls. Aroma is loaded with vinegar, wood, sour fruits and alcohol. Reminescent of a nice sour brown/red. Taste is tart but not too much with some vinegar character but less than the nose would suggest. There is also a light sweetness to it. Flavors are fruity and woody. Body is medium, carbonation maybe a touch high. Mouthfeel is vinous, alcohol shows quite a bit but it isn’t disturbing. It does warm you plenty, though. Really nice!
