3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at De Molen. Poured a hazy deep reddish amber with a frothy off white head. The aroma is rich and fruity. The flavour is packed with red berry fruit and alcohol. The alcohol provides the bitterness and there is some sourness on the palate from the fruit. A rather complex beer and the best I’ve tasted from "Merciless".

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ de Molen. Cloudy light brown color, short head. Aroma is fruity of tangerine, hint of strawberry, milky, slight tart, lots of toffee and caramel. Soft sour flavor, lots of toffee and caramel again. Creamy mouthfeel. It drinks like sweet fruity dairy. Alcohol not noticeable at all. It’s a bit too sweet for my liking, wonder how the barley wine part develops with age, because it’s actually way too young. The Gose makes it dangerously drinkable though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at CBC 2013. Unclear orange color, small quickly diminishing off-white head. Smell and taste a weird kind of mix between sweet and sour with some sour fruits. Can’t really describe it properly. Something to taste for yourself. Weird.
