wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Tasted on 2/27/15 from a capped 750mL bottle from the first year membership. Pours cloudy brown with a thin beige head that leaves a very thin collar. The nose is very sour, a touch of balsamic, some nutty oak, and light vanilla. The flavor is more lemon, along with light nutty malt, some vanilla oak, and a touch of earth adding complexity. The body is medium with some sticky tannin, average carbonation and a long very sour, nice oak finish.

sebletitje (7134) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Rare Barrel tasting @ Malt Attacks, Brussels, thanks Pierre for sharing the bottles. 75cl de couleur cuivrée, au col léger blanc-cassé. Arôme au profil assez suret, fruité modéré et dominé par les bretts et un léger fruité noire en retrait. Palais rappelle un malta dont le caractère grains-drêche semble dominant. Pointe aigrelette fruitée perce en fin de bouche avec un certain caractère malté. Probablement la moins préférée des 6.
