On cask, Tasting Set at La Becasse. Bourgogne 5% lambic, brown beer mixed and aged in oak, who knew? A nice looking deep brown with a sweet caramel brown sugar aroma. Med-light bodied with a fairly full smooth mouthfeel. The taste is malty caramel fudge with a bit of tartness around the edges. Easy to drink brown. Alright but the Doux is the best, if I ever get back here I’ll get the half liter of that for 5€ or hell the liter. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Putrid brown liquid that pours with little head and no lacing. It just does not look appetizing. Smells more promising. Sweet caramel and a light cherry acidity. Tastes of cherries and some oak. The tartness is barely strong enough to overcome the sweetness in the middle. Not a bad flavor throughout. The failure is in the finish. The beer thins out and tastes like a sickly sugar water. Ugh. Light body. High carbonation. Just kinda unpleasant in the finish. Not something I’d drink again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a clear, amber highlighted, brown hue, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was sweet and wine-like, with ripened, dried fruit, subtle spice, and a bit of red wine vinegar tartness. Light to medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste added some earthy & tannic astringency, continued the pleasant fruitiness, and finished moderately tart. Decent.
