FoBAB 9. Murky tan with a thin head of shimmering star gold bubbles atop a murky brown sky. Nose is light malt, acetic bringing some red berry fruitiness, masking tape in there as well. Flavor is flat an weak, grape and heavy sweetness, bit of berry and egg before the goaty finish. Very low carbonation allows it to remain murky through the sweet, doughy, papery end.

Sampled from the bottle at 2011 FOBAB. Pours a hazy deep amber with a yellowish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit of bourbon with sour stone fruits and a bit of backing oak. Flavor starts with tart stone fruits with a developing funk, but the finish is a bit thin and left a bit to be desired.

Upland Gilgamesh served on tap at FOBAB 2011... Pours a darker amber copper hue with a thin light beige head... Earthy cherry brown muted sourness. Not vibrant but present... Semi-sweet touch syrupy mild sour cherry and earthy squcarine malt. Finishes on an earth slightly bitter bent with more towards the aforementioned. Thicker bodied in general with a lighter level of carbonation. Deserving of Best of Show runner-up? Not in my book. Hope to try this again further down the road though to see if there’s any improvement 7/4/7/3/14

somewhat surprised by this winning runner up for best in show at fobab. wasn’t terribly memorable for me at least. notes of cherry chocolate balsamic backed by a muddled sweet dough, nuts, and caramel combo all muddled up by a oaky bourbon vanilla presence. . a weird pumpkin pie like spice note present as well. good, not great.

Bottle at FoBAB 9. Seems like these were the first bottles released to the public. Pours a reddish copper with an offwhite head. Quite a nice looking beer, actually. Nose is clean acidity. Tart and some light brett. Faint vanilla notes and a graininess as well. On tasting, really nice and equitable acidity, some cherry notes in the background and just really rounded overall. Like out La Folie used to be. Really a superb Flanders Red.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Sampled on tap at FoBAB 2011 (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice glowing amber copper pour, lighter bright edges with a frothy tan head that dies to a decent film. Laces small. Aromas are touches of crisp malts, bourbon and vanilla, some gentle sour cherries, touches of sweetness mix with the sourness. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied preaching some gentle touches of oak, bourbon, and sour cherries. A touch metallic, some toffee, and light vinegar gives just a touch. Finish is more sour cherries tempered into some light red wine (which is odd for the Bourbon barrel) touches of crisp toasty malts hang on, vanilla, lactic acid. Interesting, perhaps needs some more time. A solid beer, but quite surprised this pulled in Gold and Runner Up Best of Show. The Destihl Flanders was hands down better.

bottle... another fobab award winner (2nd overall) that had me a bit stumped, a solid beer but nothing incredible... light brown body with a tan head... the nose is oak, caramel, a bit of bourbon... the taste is a bit weird the bourbon made this really buttery with an off malt character, wasn’t very sour, not assertive enough
