Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks Bruce for this Swiss delight. Hazy amber beer, little pale tan head. Light crispy palate, slightly dry. Sweet cream - notably sweet! Nice contrast of Flemish red sourness and a little white wine in the background. Subtle strawberry. Overall it is just a touch too acidic to make it a rare 3.8 sour for me but this is a tasty and interesting beer.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier
Hazy dark amber color with red shades; small frothy head. It has the usual BFM funky aroma, with just a higher fruity accent, and some cask tone too; light sweat, deep. Good body strength, strong BFM funky flavor, with some acetone (maybe too much), moderate sweetness (more than usual), nice and delicate grape fruitiness (muscat like).
Excellent beer.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Big thanks to the host! Pours lightly hazy (end of bottle) gold with a fine, creamy white head. Loads of tart berries in the nose, acetic tang, funk, sweat. Medium sweet flavor, rich, plenty of tangy fruits, some berries, decent funk, some light vinegar, touches of wood. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Good tart fruit finish, light warmth, some acidity, berries, funk, sweat. I like this one.

hopscotch (9106) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Murky caramel-colored ale with a brief, fat-bubbled, white head. The aroma is a mélange of sour cherries, red wine and caramel along with a trace of oak. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor offers sour cherries, grape SweeTarts and dark wine layered upon a rumor of red wine vinegar. Finishes tart and fruity with only a suggestion of bread-crust bitterness. World class beer!
