Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to Bruce! It pours deep hazy red with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is red berry, apricot, peach, mild vinegar, wood and vinous notes. The taste is smooth, red berry, vinous, candy floss, sour cherry, tangy raspberry, caramel, touch of vinegar and some alcohol with a dry, lightly tart finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, well balanced and rather elegant. As usual BFM turn out another great Bon-Chien!

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s - London. Thanks to Bruce for this beastly sour. Pours unclear amber with a fine, creamy tan head. Some tangy berries in the nose, acetic bite. Light to medium sweet flavor, good sour character, faint vinegar, berries, mellow funk. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Well and tangy to finish, lots of jammy fruits, some vinegar, peach, raspberry. Lovely stuff. Bold and quite punchy but still very drinkable.

bytemesis (3312) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Tap pours hazy reddish amber, small tan head, good lacing. Aroma is vinous, tart, cherry, lemon, wood. Flavor is the same, light to medium tart, light sweetness on the start, finish is dry. Fruity, vinous, cherries, woody barrel notes without any real astringence. Medium body. Quite nice, as would be expected from the series.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Cloudy amber color with red shades; medium sized compact head. The style is there; this year the aroma has more bread and feety impression (along with the usual malt, wood, fruit, light acetone), sweetish. Good body structure; semi-sweet malt flavor, with medium-sharp acidity, and some acetone; good fruity level; solid and complex; it has more sediment than the previous years.
Excellent as usual; the aroma is more elegant than the flavor.

Bov (9607) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2013
draught@Erzbierschof Punkt - cloudy dark amber-brown beer with a persistent foam left; apple and sour cherries, vinegar-like aroma; notes of wood appear while the beer gets warmer; full-bodied and solidly sourish, subtle and moderate carbonation; velvety, pretty dry and long sourish finish of wood and cherries - great as usual
