This is absolutely amazing. Light bretta, light plum sour, lots of zing. Finishes tart with some plum, light florals. Wonderful balance. The Bordeaux wine barrel works in wonderfully in this beer. Pours golden with great head and lacing. Bottle pour at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary, and probably the best beer I had among a bevy of wonderful beers.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle via JStax at a tasting, thanks Jerermy. Clear copper with small white head. Aroma is Bourdeaux, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel, barrel, some vineous (white wine). One of the best strong dark Belgian ales of the tasting.

Rate 3100! Pours a clear copper with a thin head of beige foam. The aroma is caramel, toffee, nuts, wine, and some spice. The taste is just a little tart, but mostly sweet and boozy. Big body. Low carbonation.

At my place with Jacob and Matt the girls. Pours yellow orange, light lacing. Aroma is musky, interesting, sweet agave, Mellon Rhine. Taste is interesting thick sweet in a funky tang way. I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s odd. It’s like a light colored slightly tangy sweet thick beer.

Aggressive bourdeaux character in the nose, fruity and spicy with a nice little bit of tartness. The wine character really comes through in the front of the palate with the more typical spiced cake flavors of SN making themselves noticeable in the finish. Great beer.
