3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - as Cuvée Spéciale 2014 - from Beerexpress when they were still residing on Gonsiori street (was I think € 24), shared with Mait. The bottle design is different, more traditional than the one pictured. BB 16.12.2017. Pours not very attractive coppery brownish, opaque. No head. Lovely, slightly vinegary aroma of oak, unripe red grapes, whitecurrants and gooseberries. Tastes sweet and sourish bitter, red wine, woody and ripe stone fruit flavour, cherry stones... Medium body, crisp carbonation, sticky palate. 100/100? Naah.

BOTTLE 75 CL. Clear red-brown, small head. Quite close to the original Prestige - both aroma and the taste have mild acetic notes, oxidized wine and enough malts to balance. A bit of alcohol just spices the things up. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
F: not very big, off-white, quick gone but for such a beer it´s ok.
C: reddish to brownish, a little hazy.
A: red wine, oak barrel, hint of honey, vinous sour tones, caramel, sherry, hint of barnyard, berries, herbal spicy.
T: tartness of red wine, oak barrel, some earthy, light honey, dry vinous finish, wood, berries, light candy, medium body, lower carbonated, lingering sherry on the palate, interesting complex beer reminds me good lambics but this is even more complex as it ages in wine barrels, worth to try but at almost ambient temperature, 0,75l bottle from Delhaize bought in December 2015.
