UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 750ml bottle #0734, bottled on 20/10/2012. Starts to rush out as soon as you crack the crown. Pours a deep and dark ruby red with a large, frothy dark beige head. Leaves lacing. Aroma is a lot of lavender perfume. Somewhat oaky, a bit cherry and balsamic vinegar. Taste is quite sour, a lot of the lavender perfume on the flavor as well. Some oakiness and balsamic vinegar, a touch of red berries. Oak is stronger on finish and aftertaste. Quite light, could be fuller or stickier and the carbonation is very aggressive, too much.

erickok (5397) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Deep brown body and surprisingly creamy and big tan head. Funky, bready and humous malts, balsamic vinegar. Very nice to find this from a French brewer. Fairly active body, well drinkable with complex taste profile. Unique style, especially for the origins. Rich ending. (75cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

Millesime 2012. Strange beer. Dark brown colour, a lot of foam. Very lively beer, a lot of carbonation. Smell of chocolate, brown sugar, dried fruits and candy. Earthy and a bit sourness. Not bad, but i did expect more body.

Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep reddish brown with rich, creamy beige head. Carmaelly and nutty malt aroma with some ash tray and faint berrish notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Semi dry with low bitterness and low acidity. Weird.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark reddish/brown with a medium head. Quite a lot of oak and berries in this one. Not that sour. Very easy to drink, it reminded a bit of juice. Not that much carbonation.

@ Eddan: ganska kryddig doft. Lite len smak men aning källarvarning. Mycket läskande. Lätt. Stor hinkability ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
