3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked bottle and served in Duvel snifter: Pours a beautiful reddish amber hue with a fading fizzy head and some oily tears. The aroma has notes of cherry and white grape skins, some light barnyard funk, oak barrels, touch of caramel and even chocolate along with a hint of medicinal phenols but far less than that which troubled the Love Child No.2. Lovely blend of sweet malt and lactic sourness along with a minerally and tannic finish to round out the palate. One thing however is that I pretty much do not detect any bourbon which could actually be a good thing. Touch of alcohol suggests this could stand even more aging. Overall I quite enjoyed this but not sure if I would give it a GABF Gold Medal... a vast improvement over Love Child No. 2 IMO

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber color, small compact head. The sour aroma is mild, a bit funky, woody. Good body; lean malt flavor, with no residual sweetness, strong sourness, good wood character (no evidence of bourbon, which is better for this sharp vinous beer).
Well brewed, balanced.

SBWF 2013. Doften påminner så oerkört om något bekant. Men är det inte Rodenbach helt enkelt? jo jag tror det. Brutalt stickande syra. Underbart! Riktig salivsprutare. Ett glas är allt man pallar. Tack för tipset Egil

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber at WTWBA. Slightly sour, funky, and slight fruit. Maybe just a touch of wood from the aging. Decent, not spectacular.
