Bottle. Hazy deep amber beer, little pale tan head. Crisp palate, semi dry. Minerally fine carbonation. Interesting beer! There is sour Flemish red type thing going on at the same time as sweet vanilla wood and whisky! The Flemish character is lightly dominant but the two sides are well integrated. Semi dry finish with tangy plummy fruits. Hides the abv well.

Bottle courtesy of 77ships, thanks! Cloudy brown color, small white edge head. Aroma of vanilla, prunes, caramel. Taste is sweet candied and brandied plum, a bit boozy. Interesting.

Benzai (10632) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared by Joes. Dark red brown color, no head at all. Aroma of wood and a touch of sourness. Taste some sourness that’s actually quite overwhelming. Why would you bottle this? It’s more like red fruits and red wine instead of whisky. Basically it just sucks.

Scopey (9412) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle at Bierboom, Bruges. It pours deep ruby with a small beige head. The nose is tangy fruit, cherry, blackcurrant, whisky, faint vanilla and wood. The taste is tart berry, red grape, blackcurrant, cherry, jam, wood and light alcohol with a dry finish. Med+ body and fine carbonation. Not much to it, but it is rather tasty. Hides abv very well indeed.

MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, dark amber to brown colour with a small and tanned frothy head. Belgian yeast-spicy character with notes of dried fruits/raisins, mildly toasted malt and delicately woody notes of vanilla. Moderately sweet and delicately sour flavour, medium to full bodied with a calm carbonation. Fruity and mildly toasted malty base with notes of prunes, a touch of raisins, caramel and vanilla; sweet and slightly sour-fruity, if not delicately lactic finish. No revelation, but has some lighter attributes of a Flemish Red. 06.X.13

sebletitje (7913) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
33cl bottle courtesy of 77ships @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Fresh. Trouble ambrée, col moyen blanc cassé. Arôme donne de suite ces notes des 11%, avec un bouquet belge typique. Palais est ici aussi bien alcoolisé suivi de qcq notes de cask boisé pour un whisky très léger. Pétillant moyen mais qui termine assez plat. Malté avec ce profil fruité fermenté. Au final la bière est un peu partout, et on se perd à savoir le but original de la bière.

22/IV/13 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB:XII/2016 (2013-363) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy deep red orange beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of orange peel, caramel, nutty, lots of alcohol, sugary, smells very oxidized. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sour, red wine, more sourish, unpleasant bitterness that collides with the sour taste, cranberries and bitter grape peels. Aftertaste: sourish, lemony, dry, more lemony, red grape peel, bitter ending. Nope, this can’t be right...

77ships (5561) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
33 cl. bottle procured @ Willems. Shared. Murky, lightly brown amber with almost no head. Sweet moldy nose, light brown fruits, light wood, light odd rotting fruits, hint cellar and spices,… Taste is moldy barrel, light cellar, light port, overripe fruits, rotting wood, old fermenting prunes, light bitterness spices, light rotting berries, rotting mold, cellar,.. Hint fizzy,… Actually way better than expect from these guys considering the terrible amount of beers before.

ClubGonzo (4756) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a deep mahogany brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is rum, raisins, wood, dark chocolate and hints of whisky and honey. Taste is sour-ish yeast notes, deep malts, raisins and loads of metal which is really disruptive at first but thankfully disappears after a while. Hints of red fruits and citric peel, which really feels out of place and makes the whole beer seem a bit like some strange juice or something. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Half-decent, but very weird.
