To enhance the flavor of our Sunturnbrew, we aged it in bourbon barrels for a year. We think it was a good year!

Gurthnar (5020) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle from bottle park. Full of aroma. Raisins, plums, heavy smoke, peated. Hazy dark brown colour. Taste has quite strong sourness. Acidic, apples. Not entirely disgusting, but not the usual peated smoky pleasure. The normal Sunturnbrew was way better.

Maris (1393) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2014
From a 250ml bottle on 30/5/2014 (present from my wonderful wife and precious daughter). Pours a dark red amber with just a hint of head. Has a strong aroma of dark fruit (grapes) and booze. The flavour is big and sweet, with dark fruit again to the fore (more grapes, plums, prunes), along with some brown sugar and more than a dash of bourbon. It finishes with a distinct, quite sour, puckering bitterness which provides balance to the sweetness up front. The palate is relatively syrupy and the carbonation medium. Don’t really get much peat in this and it doesn’t really present as a barley wine to me. None the less, it’s a quite interesting boozy sipper.

arsol (989) - NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Grumsete mørk brun farge med lite skum. Noe røklukt, også alkoholdunst. Lukter også kirsebær. Smaker syrlig. Litt sherryfeeling. Liker absolutt smaken bedre en lukten. Kjenner alkoholvarme. Bittersøt avslutning som varer.

Vighals (3256) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Mørk brun med en del segmenter. Lys brunt skum. Røkt, sur lukt av bål og lukt av bær. Syrlige bær, cherry og kjenner også røyksmaken. Lite kullsyre, ganske lang bittersøt ettersmak.

Holmen2 (2931) - NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
Very dark ruby, significantly darker than the ordinary Sunturnbrew. A bit of lambic, peated malt and barn in aroma. Sour lambic in taste and aftertaste, with sour berries and medium dark malt. Not much peated malt taste left. Dry mouthfeel. Decent drinkability. Interesting.

tandembrauer (1216) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Dark red-brownish colour. Interesting aroma of fermented fruits, a little smoke and alcohol. Alcohol taste very strong and sherry-like with tones of red berries. Some sourness.
