Draught @ SBWF’12
Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, wood, malts, vanilla, oak and hops. Taste is rxtremely fruity with notes of wood, oak, vanilla, bourbon and syrup, hints of sourness and tart fruits. Sweet, sugary finish with hints of vanilla, wood and oak, hints of tartness. Okay, a bit too sweet for my taste.

On tap at Het Oude Schooltje - Struise Brouwers @ The Old School, march 14th 2015. Dark yellow body with a medium white head. Fruity aroma with vanilla and peach. Taste of marmelade, bourbon, spicy hops, chocolate and a mild alcohol burn. Rough sweetness, a nice experimental blend but becomes a bit unbalanced towards the barley wine.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
