Medium brown - mostly clear - slightly tart aroma - notes of spice, nuts, sour cherry, vanilla and malt. Flavor is lively & tart, without being unpleasantly sour or funky. Sort of remindes me of Duchess de Bourgogne only a little more sweet and mild.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong aroma with notes of tart acid and some sweet malts. Pours a reddish brown with a thin beige foam. The flavor is complex and balanced with a good vinous end. The malt gives it a smooth, woody richness that gives over to the dry fruit. Medium body, little fizz with a good, long finish.

Pours dark chestnut brown with a puffy medium beige head, excellent retention. Rich malty aroma: caramel, biscuit, with citrus, yeast, and fig. Medium-light body, smooth, medium carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly sour, faintly bitter finish. Refined and subtle, enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has dark malt, some brown sugar and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste starts a bit tart and acidic, continues with toasted malt and finishes quite balanced with a hint of bitterness. Body is on the light side and has a medium to high effervescence. Not bad, easy drinking and slightly tart but it lacks the complexity that other beers of this style have.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze brunatno-rubinowym z ladna piana ktora znika bez sladu. W aromacie kwasnosc i beczka, wisnie i lekko dzikie. W smaku balans miedzy kwasem a lekka slodycza, raczej bez goryczki z wysokim wysyceniem. Czuc wino i cierpkosc na jezyku. Zostaje posmak beczkowy. Wypite ze smakiem.

Barrel aged in oak which gives it plenty of oak wood flavor a bit more then I like.
