Gift from SJ for Bull Frog night. Nice notes of vanilla, oak and berry. Has a vino / sour finish. I was impressed.

Bottle at tasting (from noes 2011). Pours a hazy murky reddish brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have a noticeable red wine character, decently tart, oak, funk, light cheesy notes, some additional berry like fruitiness, peppery spice and a surprising amount of alcohol at times. The tart character was just enough. Rather dry.

Bottle shared at the Philly tasting. Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Slight funk aromas mixed with dirt and leather. Mildly sour and acidic with good balance and a medium body. The taste is tart berry, some vinegar, oak, and vinous notes. Outstanding. Cheers to the guys in Philly for sharing all these wonderful beers...

25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy brown with a haze. Nose is leather, limeade, turned earth and oak with hints of honeydew. Not quite syrupy but still more weighty than expected with a sparkle peeking through. Taste is toffee, bruised green apple, dry cherry, wine and wet wood. Still tasty; more fruity than sour.

750ml bottle pours a hazy, chestnut brown with a creamy, off white head. Nose is very earthy, blue cheese, brown bread, a little honey, walnuts. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly tart, honey, some acid, oranges. The honey really comes through more in the flavor. Acidic burn for a finish that’s followed by a bit of sweetness too. Well balanced. Interesting.

Thanks Travlr! Murky brown pour with a small white head. The nose holds blue cheese and Gorgonzola with hints of dark fruit. Very funky, but mostly dirty and stanky. Hints of red wine come through as well. Great caressing carbonation with an uber dry yet juicy finish.

Thanks to travlr for sharing this one!! Cloudy brown pour. Nose of blue cheese and gorgonzola, a touch of vinous notes, and not a ton more. The flavor brings more dank cheese, dark fruit like plum and raisin, and damp cloth. Nice.

Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours hazy brown with a medium, frothy light tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is cheesy, vinous, oak, honey, toast and caramel malt, light alcohol, and dates. Flavor is light alcohol, phenols, cheesy, honey, oak, caramel and toast malt, and a sweet finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

750mL thanks to Travlr. The pour is a muddy, mineral laden brune with a medium, fizzing tan head. Low carbonation. Nose is sharp, briny bleu cheese and Gorgonzola cheese. Odd stuff. Not bad...just very strangely funky. As it warms there is more Flemish red type of funk and big sour fruit character. I’m digging the nose, though it is very unorthodox. Taste bring a lot of red wine barrel, spicy oak, mild salt, and actually there is a cinnamon and richer honey character from the base beer. Mouth watering palate and very mineral laden in feel. Good stuff, reminds me a bit of Oerbier Reserva.
