4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1.5L magnum bottle, aged a couple of years. Like the other Grand Cru Bon Chiens, this one pours out a hazy, murky looking, bright pinkish-red watermelon hue with virtually no head or lace. The nose is incredibly vinous, taking on the peppery, earth-borne fruitiness that the Cabernet barrel imparts. Notes of cherry and tart strawberry permeate throughout, incredibly fresh and vibrant, brightening the moderately acetic fruit-based vinegar in the base. Some berry skin tannins lend an edge, fortifying the mild caramel sugar malt structure. Flavors mirror the nose, intensely zingy and berry-forward, notably skewed towards strawberry, cherry, and miscellaneous fleshy red varietals. The acetic character is definitely there, though it is not as intense as a vinegar. In fact, the fruity malt character keeps it well in check. Oak is persistent and peppery, with deeply hidden vanilla overtures. On the palate, the body is weighty, yet incredibly well attenuated, showing a nice, puckering dryness despite its 11% ABV and lack of carbonation. Dangerously drinkable, and incredibly well structured. Outstanding brew. One of my favorite Bon Chien varietals and vintages.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Bottled, thans Bov! Cloudy mahogany colour, no head. Tart woody vinuos nose. The malt sweetness is beautifully balanced by lactic tartnes. Solid and caramelly with fresh berry and woody vinous notes of port and champagne. The alcohol is masterfully built in to the beer making it a flavour enhancer. A complex and arousing beer. Another BFM winner!

For the longest time I thought this was just a decorative bottle that sat on Markus’ counter for awhile. Thanks for bringing it. Murky reddish orange pour. Lots of sediment in this. Absolutely no head. Huge aroma. Sour notes with tartness that is soft against the nose. Largely tart flavoring that does not offend. Tart feels more fruit produced rather than chemical in nature. Light vinegar but only as an afterthought. The finish has a slight tingle but no alcohol is felt. Probably one of the best sours I’ve had.

Magnum. pours a hazed deep rusty red with no carbonation- mostly flat. Aroma is yeasty, nutty, mineral cherry pit, tannic red wine, grape skins, must, old lees, slight alcohol, cola, and light acetic- red wine vinegar. Flavor is musty, apple cider, red wine, cab barrel woodiness, light oak. toast, spices, earthy dirt tones on a flemish red flavor- caramel, cherry pit, good tartness, apple cider, then green skins medium sweet in the middle, then dries out and gets more tart in the end with tons more wood and grapey tannins. Good stuff.

Bottle #081, a magnum shared with a bunch of folk. Kind of olivey, vinegar, woody, tart, deeply complex aroma. Thick and grimy and delicious. Wet dog, funky yeasty flavor, totally soured up and infected, rather delicious. Pours with no head, lots of floaties. Reminiscent of the grand reserve JPs but without the bourbon, a really natural tasting funk. Lovely.

shared by Beerlando @ sourfest. Some oxidation on the nose with oak and caramel with a spicy tartness. Pours reddish amber with no head or carbonation. Tart strawberry upfront with vanilla and oak with caramel malts as well with an acidic finish. The finish lingers slightly with caramel and hints of aged balsamic with raspberry notes. Awesome.
