Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton as always for the HF lifeline. Hazy red - brown beer, tidy cream coloured head. Palate is light and softish. Light fine carbonation. Light Flemish sourness with a woody geueze vibe. Very light oak that seems to be keeping the sourness in check. Light and semi dry finish.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s I’m London during Jack’s farewell tasting. Thanks mom for grabbing this one. Pours mostly clear ruby-amber with a tight, creamy beige head. The aroma holds lots of tangy berries, ripe cherries, some wet wood. Light to medium sweet flavor with mildly tangy berries, a bit of bread, cherries, plums, hints of pepper. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light warmth in the finish, more wet wood, tangy berries, cherries, cranberries, subtle funk, some raspberry. Lovely stuff. Starts slow but finishes strong. Great depth and balance.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
375mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma is very complex, bringing out lots of wine and port notes, lightly sweetened and fairly soured dark fruits, and a big of balsamic vinegar. Flavour is very dry and tart, with red wines dominating, followed by a touch of port, dry tart dark red fruits, and light vinegary notes. Carbonation is solid, without being overdone. Finishes on notes of dry red wine and light vinegar. Excellent beer.
