Sammy (9443) - Toronto, Ontario, - MAY 5, 2013
Bottled April/2010. From private Quebec buying group.A fresh yeast aroma, with some funk. Somewhat gushing, prewarning enabled us to treat my weeds. Cloudy orange with large soapy head. A good tartness,though builds to somewhat vinegar with repeated samples, licorice, grape. Good drinkability. Nice for the hotter weather. Neat complexity-Johnsense. Oak rounds it out.

bartlebier (2533) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2014
75cl bottle shared by koelschtrinker@kevnic2008’s late summer Baden-Baden tasting, danke! Smells like a fresh, doughy apricot tarte with a fresh sour cream dollop, some offish balsamico acidity. More whispy peach yoghurt and diffuse oakwood barrel in taste, macerated peach, sweeter mango froop underneath, some wild fruity "fleshiness" in body. Interesting overlap with some Belgian ale barreling/souring experiments by De Leite, Cantillon Fou Foune and overall a very nice BA saison/sour/ale. Can still conjure up this highlight of a tasting lying some months behind now - underrated here.

slowrunner77 (6923) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Different than it is entered on ratebeer. 6.5%, not 7.6%, no mention of barleywine, just a sour red (though very very light red at that. Hopped with citrusy hops that add an extra level of twang to the back end of the flavor. Oak, funk, tropcal and citrusy fruits. Good brew."

Pours cloudy reddish brown color with off white head. Sour vinegar aroma with some oak. Similar flavors. Medium body with average carbonation. There are much better, less expensive beers in this style.
