Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle bought at Tribaun in Innsbruck. Stylish, Italian inspired bottle which unfortunately comes with a very steep price tag. Fortunately, in that price category, I either want excellence or a beer which pushes the definition of beer. This one fits right in the second category. Gently oxidized, vin jaune, nutty, coconut milk, berries, peaches... an unusual combination stemming from both the red wine barrel sojourn and Belgian yeast. Strong yogurt, caramel, pudding, white chocolate, undeniably complex flavor profile, yet loaded with... Weirdness and not necessarily the highest level of elegance or integration. Medium-full mouthfeel with strong carbonation albeit not dramatic for a Belgian-style. More than noticeable residual sugars, but enough vinous acidity for that to fly through. Obnoxious and satisfying for the genre and more importantly, totally unexpected from Austria

Saeglopur (1699) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 3, 2015
Sampled from bottle at Craft Bier Fest Wien Tasting Sessions.
Brown, copperish body, with a small, beige head.
Aroma of nuts, caramel, dried fruits, dark berries, alcohol.
Tastes of booze, nuts, cocoa, berries, dried fruits, caramel, some barrel notes.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes alcoholic, astringent, sweet, malty, fruity.

Very nice. Maybe a bit too alcoholic, otherwise really good. Could be a bit more complex for a high ABV, barrel aged beer, but still a full, comfortable sipper.

Bottle: Full aroma, rich on malt, fruitiness of dark fruits, dried fruits, candy. Hazy dark amber color, creamy off-white head. Flavor is malty and light sweet, Nice fruitiness but more alcoholic and well balanced by a medium hop bitterness and some notes of oak barrels. Nice.
