This is not our typical Bancreagie! Bancreagie Sour 26 was brewed smokier and heavier in an effort to handle eight months of barrel-aging. A hot, summer barrel rest with a noticeable dose of souring bacteria builds a unique, tart beer. Up front, tangy fruit reminiscent of apple, cherry and plum dominate, but then give way to vanilla, caramel, tobacco & sweet smoke.

750ml bottle pours a clear, burnt orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose has an odd mix of salted meat and citrus rind, malt, apple. Flavor has apple and pear, some blood orange, mild vinegar, some soggy bread. Medium bodied, acetic finish.

Des balbutiements de flocons fumés se cachent dans une complexe soupe acétique et chaude avec une bonne présence des sucres. Cerises, tabac, chocolat noir, fenouil, noisettes et cendres font partis de l’éventail.

thanks to whoever brought this. This is very tasty. Good peat flavors. Great tartness. Very tart, nuanced like scotch. Yum

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark brownish red pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, vinegar, smoked malts with a hint of applewood, some vanilla in there with some tobacco as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, tobacco, vanilla, hints of cocoa powder into a bit of vinegar, lacto, some fruited notes with a hint of oak, finishing smoky, slightly tart. It is very interesting, and the combo works well for me.

split this bottle while watching the Vikes in Dec. 2014. Better when it warmed a bit. Strange brew, but I kinda like the peat vs. sour interplay

This was a birthday present that I loved. I like the regular bancreagie and this one didn’t disappoint. There is a sourness but it isn’t overdone. It works well with the peaty smokiness and huge malt bill from the ale. Very good.

Peat aroma builds in the aroma. Sour dough bread. Taste is sour, vanilla, cherry, peat but not too much, just the right amount. Apple cider. Bitterness is similar to chewing on the but of a dry cigar. This beer has so many layers to explore. Take your time with it.

Bottle, shared by Ferris. Orange amber body, off white head. Leathery peat married to a Flemish sour brown profile, caramel and dark fruits, old apples. Not puckeringly sour, and not astringently leathery either, so I guess this comes off as balanced in its own way. Certainly very interesting; I liked it!

Ferris (8462) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle - Soured dark malts and some peat. Cloudy maroon with a deck beige head. Tart cherry, malts and some peat. Wild and crazy,and funny enough not the best peated sour, but still good,

Bottle, must’ve been courtesy of iphonephan, thanks! Clear caramel color, off white edge head. Aroma of butterscotch. Taste is softly sour, very malty, earthy.
