Pours a cloudy dark amber, small tan head, but this beer is well carbonated. Great aroma, Belgian yeast and a general fruitiness. Just a touch of wood. Very interesting flavor. Quite sweet and fruity. There’s something else here, though. Can’t place it. Delicate on the palate, good body. Real nice.

25 oz bottle, via Sprinkle. Pours a dark amber with a fluffy and creamy off-white head. Lots of visible carbonation leads to amazing retention. Sugary sweet yet tart aroma, very fruity. Reminds me of a gueuze actually with that same old musty characteristic. Vanilla notes as well. Slightly tart and fruity flavor, with a lot of candy sweetness, yeast, and alcohol on the finish. Complex, vinous, and woody as a result of the barrel aging. Nice efforvescent carbonation, medium bodied up front with a little thinner finish. Very soft mouthfeel. Awesome beer all around, a truely unique and well crafted product.

Initially bright spicy light hoppy aroma. A whiff of milky sourness comes on. Medium sweet, medium to full bodied. Touch of wood, real bit of sourness, not enough to diminish the body, but it is definitely there. Very, very solid stuff!

dark reddish brown pour with a good head, slightly fruity aroma, but not very strong, spicy, fruity flavors, a bit like a sour ale, but not quite the same

Thanks to Hatchy. Pours a darker hazy brownish amber with a medium off white head that laced nicely. Aroma was a bit light. Picked up vegetables, some spice, malty, caramel and a bit musty. Flavors of the same...kind of hard to explain. A bit sour and vineous.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Distinct flavor and aroma of bourbon. Cloudy brown pour with short, off-white head. The flavor, beyond the bourbon, had notes of overripe fruits — apple and cherry. A sweet beer with a tart to sour alcohol finish that’s short in duration. The body leans toward the thin side. The mouthfeel is fizzy. Not a favorite.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown pour. Some light fruitiness in the nose (apple, cherry) is dominated by stale malts - bready and flat. The body is light with spritzy carbonation. More apple, cherry in the body, almost cough syrup like at times. Not cloying though, just a bit harsh. The finish is heavy with notes of sherry and vinegar. The yeast seems to get lost in all of this. Interesting, but one bottle is enough for me.

Huge head with a caramel apple-like aroma is quite pleasing some cinnamon and other spices are present as well, wonderful Nose. Appearance is a murky brownish-orange. Taste heavy fruit notes, apple definite, some citrus lemon perhaps, caramel, rather tinny too, Somewhat sour light palate at ends kind of flat. Nice spice filled and fruity brew, not my cup of beer (tea), but very pleasant and refreshing for a change.
