This beer is the result of a lot of patience and a lot of experimentation. It took us over 4 years to build up a reserve of barrel aged beers from which to pull from to create the beer you hold in your hands. A blend of several barrels ranging in age from 2 to 3 years old. The resulting beer is tart, oaky and very unique.

Editors note: 750ml bottle, and having a label marked FO/BB that states it was bottled 2/10.
Released in April 2011, 1200 bottles.

gEUS (1320) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear light amber with no head. Lactic nose, cherries. High acidity in the body, some wood impression which is quickly undone by the lactic character. Some fruit sour in the taste... Dissapointing.

Bottle at RBSG 2010 shared by j12601 I believe. Pours a hazy brown color with a large tan head. The aroma had a nice tart fruity aroma favoring cherries and berries with mild funk, caramel and a light woody notes. The flavor had tart cherries, berries, wood, caramel and a light musty funk. I would have liked to try this again, but it hasn’t happened to date.

Lukaduke (2469) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a rusty murky brown color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is deep tart cherry, cider vinegar, old wood and cocoa dust. The palate follows with lots of vinous cherry notes wet woody notes and some roasted malt, a touch a acetic burn in the throat keeps me from loving this beer but it is enjoyable.
