3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle bb 31112017
Pours a dense ruby brown body. Creamy tan lace sits atop.
Aroma distinctly woody, red wine like; sour cherry, cocoa, charred oak, dark fruits, caramelised balsamic, with an underlying note of horsey Brett.
Full body, low carbonation, a prickle of acidity towards the finish.
More vinous character on the body; balsamic, cherry, bourbon, quite a twang to it. Finishes with a decidable bitterness and lingering Brett fruity funk.
Bit all over the shop. Lacks the balance and smoothness of better Oude Bruins
