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.

Hazy dark amber beer, little pale tan head. Nose is pleasingly cider - wine like. Palate is smooth and semi dry, fine carbonation. Taste follows the nose and adds gueuzey sourness, a little on the acid side. Light dry finish. Interesting stuff and if it had been less acid I would have really liked it.

fiulijn (14380) - 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.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, glowing orange-amber beer with a small, beige head. The aroma is rather vinegar-ish, with some caramel notes, sour berries and cellar hints. Caramel, dried fruits, sour berries, some vinegar and lemon juice and a vinous touch in the flavor. Full to medium body, semi-tart and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish with sourness and berries. Pretty decent this one, but too one-dimensional, lacking some depth. 131123

Travlr (11078) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft. Cloudy amber briwn color, thick beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of aromatic, floral vanilla and lemon. Taste is rich vanilla liquer and vinous fruit and white wine. Delicious.
