3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy red orange with a sticky white head. Nose is driven by loads of dried fruits, especially apricot, heavy cherry and plums with red wine tannins. Taste is sweet red wine notes - majorly plummy and stewed dark fruits, dried apricot, sticky sweet, slightly tarty. Works very good and comes together superbly. I like it a lot

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with a beige head. Spicy vinous aroma with nuts, sour oranges. Texture like watered down kefir, lowish carbonation. Sweet, sour, spicy, with overripe stone fruit, their stones, sour oranges, caramel, some bread. Modest bitterness but spicy and a bit tangy at the end. Lots of interesting things going on, but all a bit of a jumble really. Perhaps it will come together later. Didn’t like the slickness in something this full-bodied.

Weird beer this (but it works). Peppery Belgian ale is the initial impression before a wave of sour funk comes crashing through. Aniseed, bitter, tang, almost Flemish save for the pepper. Really does work although it never quite hangs together.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours murky copper. White thin head with nice white lacing. Aroma is Strawberry bubblegum sweetness, bit of bread notes. Flavour is Strawberry, floral, citrus notes, biscuit. Light carbonation. Oily texture, really slick mouthful. Body is medium but alcohol is excellently integrated. Nice.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy nutty brown with a smallish, off-white head. Lovely Bretty and woody aroma with some brown sugar blending in. Medium body, an initial sweetness, overripe fruit, caramel and subtle wood. Again slightly funky. A very subtle and elegantly barrel-aged beer. 250214
