(draught) slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of cherry stones, brown sugar and nettles, with a light hint of acetone, yeast and pale malts. flavour is mostly nettles, herbal hops and coconut, with a touch of caramel, some lemons, bubble gum and a rather dry medium-bitter finish.

sample from draft at ZBF 15, poured a light amber colour with a slight off head. first notice of sour tart fruits that i didn’t expect. grapefruit, lime, tart, pineapple, brett, slight hint of oak, juicy slight tart aftertate. can’t detect any bourbon, I think that a white wine barrel would be a lot better for this beer. but overall it’s still very enjoyable

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015). A very sour, very spiritful amber coloured barley wine. This brew however is not unpleasant. The sourness reminds of vinegar - think of pickled gherkins -, the aroma is that of a nicely blended gueuze, the taste balances between sugary sweet and posca sour.

On tap at Alvinne Craft Beer Fest in Vichte - Belgium March 2015 with markoijelena. Pours amber hazy, off-white cap with traces on the surface. Nose: light caramel, white chocolate and a hoppy background. Also some tart sour notes in the nose (cool). Mouth: high carbonation, tart and clear on the palate, pungent in a way, malts juice with a sour and clean aftertaste. Good beer!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
At ACBF. Barrel aged DIPA, collaboration between Struise Brouwers and Hair of the Dog, this cannot go wrong... Sticky, stable, yellowish white head, lightly hazy golden blonde colour. Complex aroma, starfruit, lemon zest, pineapple, sour berries; crisp fruity onset, sweetish, caramelly malts, complex, sourish accent, long developing finish of citrussy and peppery hops, bittering and drying, with oaky tannins and indeed a hint of bourbon-like, warming alcohol which stays relatively subtle for a beer of 11.5% ABV. Excellent - as expected.

Golden colour with a white head. Nose is sour with fruits and hops. Taste is crazy, some Bretts and not too sour, some hoppy notes. Carbonation is good.

Dark red, 1 finger head. the nose is great! Smells like a malty lambic with lots of grape aroma with vanilla and a brown sugar essence.Taste is really special. yes, there are some off-flavors, maybe some shoe polish but the essence of wild yeast (brett C and Lacto) with vanilla, dense oak tannins and some sort of jelly/jam. It’s really nice. ABV is totally hidden.

On tap at CBC2012. Deep golden in the glass. Mild spicy aroma. Starts dry-hoppy, modest sharp. Gets milder and milder, dry notes in the background. Mld-hoppy finish, some wheaty hints. Okay.
