Holmen1 (2017) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
På A la Becasse i Brussel, den sist av de fire på smaksbrettet: også den sterkeste (selv om den bare er på 5%) og den eneste eikefatslagrede. Tydelige rødvinsnoter i denne, så det ble en stigning i programmet, Det er like mye atmosfæren på La Becasse som gjør at dette blir en minneverdig opplevelse, og det var hyggelig å treffe en irsk hjemmebrygger med bosted Sørkorea!

BOTM club. Pours a dark reddish brown with thick cream colored head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of sweet dark fruits and acetic sourness. Taste is much better, cherries and cola with a dark prune sore finish that lasts a while. Pretty nice.

Opaque bright brown with a one-finger head that drops to the rim, tiny dots of lace. Taste is slightly sour caramel toffee and malt, the two sides intertwining beautifully through to a short lightly bittered finish. Well-conceived and highly drinkable.

travita (3714) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle. The look is a beige colored head, brownish red in color, and cleanish. The smell is sweet, tart, wood, candy, toffee, and fruit. The taste is too sweet, very sugary, fruit, and eh.

Cantabrian (763) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 24, 2013
I was expecting a bruin/doppel, but this was just too sour. Too thin. Not at all a memorable beer experience. Will return to re-rate it with a more fair prespective one day.

jkwalking05 (3504) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Brown in color with a decent beige head. Aroma is of funk, brown sugar, cranberry, raspberry, and walnuts. Taste is of sugar cane, candy raisins, light tartness, and a little bit of funk, but very sweet.

EddyBeer1 (765) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2013
Brune claire tirant vers l’ambré, pétillance moyenne, col beige clair persistant. Malts légèrement torréfiés, cola, l’une ou l’autre épice, légèrement vineuse (d’où son nom), le fût de chêne se fait quelque peu sentir, manque de corps. Rien de spécial, d’autant que je m’attendais à mieux!

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - SEP 7, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear red with an off-white head. Taste is sweet and malty with notes of citrusy fruits. Very fresh and soda pop-ish. Not bad but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Sweet and lightly acidic with very low tartness. As anticipated, cherry is prominent, resembling Smith Bros. Cough Drops. Like the aroma, these flavors are less complex than other versions of the style.

On tap. Aroma of vinegar, yeast and fruit. Redbrown colour with beige head. A bit of tart and Wood in the rather sweet fruit flavour. Not very sour.
