Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, caramel, and a little berry. Caramel and malty flavour, with some wood and a slightly tart note. I recognize that it’s unique, but would probably have liked a more uncompromising sour beer a little more.

Sampled many many times on draft at pre-ZBF 2009 at Alvinne. This beer was definitely one of the stars of the fest. Not very sour as the bordeaux barrels really take center stage. Supremely sophisticated woody aged malt flavor. Extremely drinkable, smooth and the furthest thing from heavy or filling. I love the woodiness, especially from the Bordeaux barrels. I can’t believe I didn’t buy any to take home with me!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at pre-ZBF. Brown ale has a tart balsamic nose with an incongruous sweet chocolate note. Sweetness from malt still in flavor, tartness takes a back seat. Interesting enough, but it’s not doing it for me.

Bottle, shared @ jbrus’s place, kindly donated by Molenbrouwer. Vinous, oaky, dusty, lactic aroma. Hints of cherry and clear notes of single malt whisky. Initially some milk chocolate in the flavor, but that is overpowered by a strong whisky flavor. Not optimally balanced, but this beer will probably age beautifully. Delicious!

Tasting session at jbrus. Bottled. Dark red-brown coloured, small brown head. Lactobacillus aroma, malts, whisky notes. Again lactobacillus and whisky in flavour, a bit more leaning towards the whisky-notes, some toffee. A unique combination of flavours, sour ale and whisky, and yet so smooth and balanced that it’s still highly drinkable. Good job Menno!
