Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Mathieu’s house cooling party”. BBF 03.03.2015. GUSHER. Dark amber with no head. Nose is spoiled bread & massive oxidation, stale bread & big wet cardboard, raisin,… Taste is hugely oxidized, old cardboard, wet cardboard, raisin, sugar, old butterscotch candy, touch watery, toffee,… Body is guar, stale bread & cardboard. Wet cardboard & other oxidation notes are excessive, totally dominating. Not liking it, this one didn’t keep unfortunately despite the style.

Ernest (7202) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), moderately yeasty (mold, cobwebs), with notes of peach, grass, sour apple, hint of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Sourish, and not entirely wholesome.

Pours a slightly hazy dark copper amber with a small, frothy, thin-lacing light tan head. Has a dry, earthy spicy, semi-tart aroma with some light fruity notes. Body starts slightly sweet and caramely malty along with some spicy earthy notes and fruity tart balance. Not sure if the tartness is intended, but it’s not too overpowering and does hide the alcohol fairly well. A decent biere de garde.

Bottle (Volo) Fine haze, amber light brown. Good solid fine tanned top, nice lacing. Pleasant nose, malty, gentle aromatic hops with hints of spice and yeast. Slightly earthy, woody in character with semi-sweet malt touch. Smooth and very easy to drink. Be aware this one is 8 %. Classic.

KnutAlbert (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2010
Bottle at Hall’s Beerr Tavern, Paris. Gentle carboanation in a hazy amber beer. Very fruity, plums, peqaches, sour cherries. Feel srelated to an Altbier. Well balanced, quite complex. A little hint of barnyard, a small edge of vinegar.

Strong honey aroma dark amber, low creamy head. Woody and sweet honeyish tastenotes. medium bodied but with a heavy attitude. Sugary sweet, almost vineous aftertaste. Seems to be a bit out off balance to me.
