Bottle sample at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, vinous notes, a bit of roastiness, dark fruits, oak and a bit of bourbon. Harsh sour flavor with vinegar, oak, dark fruits and roastiness. Medium-bodied. Weird.

Struise never fails to impress me. This is a complex, rich brew that is an enjoyment in every sip.

Bottled. Slight hazy ruby color, short brownish head, quickly disappearing. Aroma is a lot of wooden barrel, some red wine, hint of tartness, slight metallic, cardboard. Medium sour in taste, bit sweet, quite fruity, bit thin. Lacks a bit of body actually, whether that should come from more tartness or lactic acid, or from other flavors. Medium in carbonation. Not much of the biscuity bourbon notes, just in the flavor a bit. Seems to be more from the bourgogne. Or at least, from wooden barrels. It has some complexity, but all in all the description makes you expect a lot more to be honest. During the bottle, it actually improves in complexity, maybe because it warms up a bit or because of some yeast notes adding complexity. Also, makes it less thin. So, as with many sour beers, be sure to pour some (not a lot ofc) yeast with it.

no nyt taas ollaan jännän äärellä. täysin epätyypillinen olut, mitätön tuoksu, hiilihapottoman punaviinimäinen maku, jälkimakuna iskee dioksiidia ja lämmin punkku. erikoisuuksien havittelijalle must, itse tyydyn toteamaan VMP. valitettavasti.

lusikka (6766) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
500 ml bottle @ HeBF. Pours a murky brown colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, red wine and grass. Flavour of toasted malts, wood, sour berries, red wine, nuts, bread and mild tannine notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a berryish finish with wood and tannine. Bourbon is rather well hidden, which is a shame. Red wine dominates. Good stuff anyway.

50 cl bottle @ HBF’13.
Pours hazy dark red color with a small off-white head. Aroma of dark ripe fruits, bourbon, dark berries, sourish fruits, malts, caramel and yeast. Flavor of sour ripe fruits, goose berries, red wine, caramel, acidic berry notes and herbs. Very nice but the bourbon is not present on the taste.

Aroma is sweet with oaky notes, some vinegar and hints of cherries. Flavour is rather tart and intensive with oaky notes, some vinegar, red wine and sweetish cherries. Also some cranberry juice notes. Quite acidic, the whiskey notes are barely noticeable. Too sweet and too oud bruin, but not bad for this style.

Poured a hazed medium brown with minimal white head. Aroma of the sourness, caramel malt, a bit wooden.. Medium body, flavour is tart, cherries and some vanilla smoothness.

On tap at Beer Temple. Brown colour, no head. Aroma of typical Flemish Brown, brown sugar, balsamic vingegar, vinous, dark fruits. Same goes for the flavour, with the addition of some oak notes, vanilla, tart-bitter finish. OK.
