This NW-style sour ale is no wallflower. It started as a strong spiced quad that was barrel aged for 21 months, then aged for another 6 months on blueberries. Huge herbal notes of dense blueberries in the nose give way to hints of oak and leather. Rich, earthy notes of dark fruit on the palate yield to a rich, velvety finish that dries out to a base note of blueberry skins. This is a single barrel project.

Draught at Borefts 2016. Intense sour aroma and a proper sour palate. Almost no alcohol feel! Taste is nice sweet/sour balanced. A definite favourite.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2016
Draught @Borefts 2016 - Dag 2. Thin mavish pink pour. A fruity quadrupel expertly dried out by oak and lactic acid - but what remains? Intense sour/small plum in aroma with an artificial prickly edge. Flavour has some Oud Bruin character, shortly hinting towards a balanced sweet-sour level and minimal residual caramels, before the "vitamin C tablet dissolved into a hanssens Kriek-feel sets in: sharp acetic attack, Brausetablette, maagzuur&tandpijn. Excellently hidden alcohol. Is this brewery’s genius wasted on me? - Willing to resampel&reconsider bottled if someone sponsors the €40+/bottle corking fee.
