YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2005 At the LCRBM - thanks to Carlo - Earthy woody nose, also balsamico but light. Great balsamico and prunes and plums taste. Medium long lasting, round and gourgeous! RERATE: Little film head, nice red colored. Besides the balsmico a nice mellow cassis taste comes through too. Thin bodied.

No#37. Aroma is sour, with some nuttyness coming in with fruit. The taste is similar with the sourness having a nice sweetness cutting through it making it very well balanced.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 Fine brown beer with reddish shine. Light coloured airy head. Aroma has touches of biquits with fresh jam sitting on top, it is slight lactic and has hints of old fortified wine. The beer has a well integrated soft woody touch in the nose and suggest a subtile sweet sour brew. The taste is very caracteristic and is not to sour or to sweet. There are hints of cookies, wood, old port some fruits and milkbread. In the aftertaste there is a slight tannine like crispyness. At the LCRBM (Kulminator Antwerp) Thanks to me for finding this.

Bottled at LC-RBM. Aroma of cherry and very fruity. Chestnust red, beige head, good lace. Sweet & sour, gin, fruit, peppery, woody, port, light dry. We didn’t know which brewery but it did remind us of Duchesse and now I see why.

JorisPPattyn (9529) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2005
Red-brown / chestnut colour with a good, irregular yellow-brown head. Lactic nose, sour, wood, slight saccharine smell, aroma of old Burgundy. Extremely vinous character, dark fruit, red grapes flavours. Medium body, dry, very tanninelike, long lasting main taste. Excellent oud bruin. Mixture, original or labelbeer? Great find, Lachesis.
