ComradeK (1042) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy chestnut amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. Red wine vinegar is the predominant aroma, with some plum and oak notes in there as well. Spicy hops and a slight wild yeast flavour up front lead into sweet red wine and more wild yeast in the mid-palate. A strong rye bread flavour comes through in the finish, with a lingering aftertaste of red wine vinegar. In a lot of ways this reminds me of BrewCult Acid Freaks, which is brewed with balsamic vinegar; it’s an odd beer, but on the whole it works fairly well.

flip_soeperman (620) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Aroma of some horse with resin and caramel. Really nice medium bodied beer with a really complex thing going on. Quite some bitterness with a very dry taste. Reminds me of Evil Twin Disco Beer. Awesome beer.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 9, 2014
12oz bottle into a tulip. Deep amber with off white head that dissipates quickly some small bit of lacing. Traditional BSA aromas, the Belgian sugars, caramel, some hop resin, barnyard. Taste is the same, interesting caramel/toffee kick about half way through the taste that was very appetizing.

Nose is mild toffee, candi sugar, wood, farmhouse yeast, mild banana and hints of bread and straw.

Full body, medium to high carbonation. Nice BSA with a distinct barrel touch from To Øl.
