75 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, BBE 25.05.2018
Aroma is sourish with white wine, apricot and some bourbon notes. Also grapefruit. Flavour has some white wine notes, bourbon, vanilla and some fruity tones. Feels acidic. Quite bland on the flavour side, I liked the basic Struiselensis much more.

750ml bottle @ PBF IX

Pours cloudy yellow with a foamy head. Aroma of bretta, wood, oak, vanilla and ripe fruits. Taste is sweetish, woody and oaky with some vanilla and ripe fruity notes. Finish is mildly tartish and funky with some yeast, wood and vanilla. Pretty smooth, not very sour or tart.

Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of wheat, yest, barnyard and sour citrus fruits, wood and bourbon notes. Sour flavor that ends up tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and flat to soft carb. A very nice sour indeed.

zimbo (595) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Huge head and very refreshingly sour. Pure and long with an intense floral zestiness. Long and lightly rich. An outstanding example of how to handle and use a bourbon barrel without letting the barrel dominate.
