Light haze on this deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with fine carbonation. Smooth malts, nice sweetish mellow bourbon and soft oaky sweetness. Light brett runs throughout, as does a lovely touch of sweet cherry. The brett turns slightly bitter before the smooth finish. Tasty and complex, it hides the abv pretty well.

bierkoning (12359) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Sample from tap @ the brewery. Amber color. Herbal aroma (cardemon, anis) with oaky notes. Medium to full bodied. Boozy and alcoholic, herbal, some dried fruit. Hints of bourbon overshadowed by strong herbal notes. Good already, but needs more time to fully develop. Bottle. Amber color. Dried fruit, bourbon and parsnip in the aroma. Less pronounced herbal as the non barrel aged version. Malty sweet, boozy bourbon flavor with soft herbal notes. Parsnip and cinnamon in the finish.
