bottle shared with a friend, side by side with the chardonnay edition, the both poured a beautiful deep purple colour with a nice dark purple head on top. nose is basicly the same as base, but this versions adds an extra layer of sweetness of desert wine, which imo is not needed in a lambic-style soured beer. both brews are just filled with cherries, these few years on made this beer a beast. glad i found them online, fairly expensive but they are worth every pennie. amazing!

Dark ruby color with pink head. Aroma is really smooth with nice cherry, cherry pits, sherry, doesn’t seem tart. Taste is also really balanced and complex. I get cherry juice, not really sour, just slightly tart, also slightly bitter with cherry pits flavor. The barrel aging adds just a slight complexity and sweetness but it’s not very evident. Medium body with soft carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. This might be my favorite from the series so far. I will definitely try the other BA version as well.

magicmn (146) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 5, 2016
Bottled at Eric the red. Deep cherry red, bit viscousy. Aroma is sour cherry and wine. Taste is sour-sweet cherry, wine-like, really rich, especially final with trace of cherrystone. Elegant beer, one of best i ever drunk. Big respect to Mikkeller for this one.

gEUS (1702) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2016
nottle at home, compared to the other versions. Chardonnay version: Pours a bit lighter than the other two (whereas te Malaga wine barrel is the darkest of them all). Aromas are hidden, after some heavy swirling some vinious Pinot Noir notes and blueberries. Soft mellow mouthfeel, taste is cherry peel and some tannins as well. Malaga version: a lot more dark fruit in the nose and a bit of the Spanish rich alcohol that one can find in the Southern wines. Meaty and animal scents, this goes very close to wine! Body is also more alcoholic and tannine-rich. Preference foes to this one over the other two varieties.
