Marheb (1748) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Une nez très fruité et acide avec des courants chocolatés. En bouche, ça se dirige tout droit vers un gâteau forêt noire avec la cerise très dominante, le chocolat noir et du bois sec en fin de bouche.

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle from CANBIF 2013. Had sat on the counter overnight but still ended up as a giant gusher...pours a hazy and dark brown with an initially huge dark beige head that settles down to a nice film. A nice sour / bruin aroma with some fruit, vinous, tart, some metallic notes (that still linger in the background a bit even after 30+ minutes opening up), some vanilla and cherries, oak; moderate+ carbonation, moderate body, nice tartness, cherry, finish has a hint of medicine as things dry out. Tasty.

Zer0 (1125) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2013

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention but minimal lacing. Aroma consists of tart cherries with loads of oak notes and some vinous notes also noticeable. Taste is also a well-balanced mxi of tart cherries with some notes of oak and a vinous finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very enjoyable Flanders red beer with an extra vinous feel. I am not sure I could taste the Wild Turkey barrel though.

Fin (7027) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle purchased at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, June 2013 consumed at Eardisley, Hereford Friday 8th November 2013 Pours a dirty, murky brown head is foamy off-white and a little scummy. I can certsinly get the Bourgogne BA but not the Wild Turkey. This is fruity, zappy and tart, there is a busy carbonation across the tongue. I didn’t know the style before I opened this, I just thought it would be appropriate at this time of year to have this beer, however I like it. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov15 3.6

Draft. brown beer with a dark cream head. Tart and fruity aroma. Tart and red fruit flavor. Medium bodied. Tart and red fruit lingers with light oak and light chocolate.
