Bottle: Hazy, amber coloured, small off-white foamy layer, dried fruits, caramel and wood/wanilla in the nose with a subdued acidity underneath; moderate to solid sourish-sweetish flavour, medium bodied; nearly solid (and lingering) sweet-sourish finish, aromas of dried fruits and leather included. Unsual, but pleasant…

Aroma of oak, bourbon, vanilla, quite sour, forest fruits, balsamic vinegar, sweet malts, like a BBA Flemish Red. Flavour is acetic, sour, tart, red fruits, sweet malts, apple vinegar, bourbon, acetic finish with some oaky sweetness. Medium-bodied, alcohol barely noticed. Really tasty stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Sharp berries, raspberries and red berries, sharp sourness, but quite a bit of coconut too. As it warms, there’s a bit of mustiness, but some alcohol too. More winey later, getting the nice aspects of barrel ageing. Wonderfully complex. And I haven’t even tasted it yet. Tada! What a lovely crisp sharp feel in the mouth. Apricot fruitiness is lovely, but there’s some white wineyness that I’m less keen on. A totally confusing brew, and I like being challenged to think about it every sip. However, I wish I didn’t have to tick this, as I’d rather just sip it and wonder with every sip. I do get the coconut again later. As it warms, the woody barrel ageing does take over. This was a crazy and wonderful journey, thank you Menno!

Pours a hazy dark amber colour with no head. Complex aroma of dried fruits, apricot, wood, coriander. Like drinking a fruit basket. Flavour is fruity sourness, some warming alcohol. Very surprising.

Weird brown copper color, no head. Sour and acidic mouthfeel. Some spices and vanilla of the aging. Very strange, but nice.

Pour is a strange colour, kind of like cheap cola with no head. Smell is kind of like watered down vodka kind of like sweet medicine. Good initial and final sour taste.
