KansaiBeerLvrs (3566) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
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.

ctipping (549) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
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.

peponi (961) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Aroma: woody notes, red fruits, cellar. Appearance: clear brown-reddish color, nice beige head. Taste: no bitterness, barrel notes, slightly astringent, semi-sweet, roasted dark malts. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, barrel notes in the finish. Overall: Actually not so bad.

tmoreau (3151) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2015
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.

JefVerstraete (2310) - Ghent, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2015
Draft @ La Buena Vista, Brugge. Dark red/brown. Creamy white foam. Medium carbonation. Sweet with notes of caramel. Aroma of red berries with light sour notes. Rather sweet. Almost no bitterness. Not bad.
