bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 5, 2016
25cl bottle (bb?) shared at oldmanriver’s. Bref: musty conconction of a pleasing, accessible sweet&sour old brown, old balsamic wood tones over caramel cherry. - Slick, deep toasted caramalts lay a soft drink base layer of fruit and sugars for wine balsamics, damp wood and cellar must to lean on. Not infinitely complex, striking a regional balance between straight up sour, spiced (cinnamon) and old-style catering to a regional sweet tooth. One of few both rich&malty and tart rood-bruins from East-Flanders, at that one too modest to end up in exporters’ crosshairs.

Vells (1608) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 26, 2016
Lovely gentle brown sour. Rich dried fruits, figs, some overripe fruits, decent maltiness in background, toast. Light sweet with mild tartness, almost no bitterness. Liked

Vignale (3369) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2015
Flaska från Beergium. En söt rödöl med mycket mörkt socker i smakbilden. På plussidan finns mycket fatkaraktär och fin fruktighet med främst mörka syrliga körsbär och krikon. Också fin mjuk syra. Trevlig

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Very dark ruby brown with beige head. Aroma is sour yeasty leather. Light tartness, cherry coke, light yeasty character. Finish dried my mouth out. Similar to the Duchesse du Borgogne however I preferred that one. Thanks for sharing Kapusil!
