4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
300 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Caigny. BBF 10.11.2019. Very interesting beer / concept, clearly inspired by British brewing history, I have always been interested in trying something like this. Dark wood brown with a very dark amber hue, little tanned head. Nose is pleasant sour red wine, vinegar, balsamic vinegar, very sour dark cherries, puckering oak, sour malts with very light sweetness in the back. Taste is delicious red wine with plenty of pleasant vinegar, sour dark cherries, puckering red wine, cherry pits, red berries sour, plenty of red current,Ö Woody & faint coffee aftertaste. Low carbonation, thinned sour malts,Ö Basically a lovely Oud Bruin, highlighting the link of these beers with British brewing history. Wild Beer is very hit and miss for me, this is a clear hit. A touch watery which does lend it a high drinkability, finish caries a light sweetish Coca-Cola note which is a bit odd.

Bottle at home from source cafe. Pours hazy brown with pillowy toffee tinged head. Chestnut highlights. Spicy hay and wood notes on the nose with underlying vanilla coke, rich alcohol and a touch of pear (yeast esters rather than higher alcohols). Balsamic vinegar replaced by earthy blackcurrants. low carbonation, fairly dry with a lengthy finish. Coffee, cola, bitter malt, medium bodied. A complex sipper.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle for CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours a deep ruby / mahogany colour with a huge beige head. Actually this is a slow gusher. Foam is soapy and looks bretty, leaving lacings on the side of the glass as it dissipates. Aroma is quite complex with wine, bourbon and brett above all. Notes of port wine and madeira, leather, tobacco and vanilla. Brett funk in there too. Taste is mostly sweet and slightly acidic. Some tiny smoky notes. The taste is very similar to the nose, but more muted in intensity. Certainly full of red wine, bourbon and barnyard notes. A great combo to me. Palate is quite thin with soft carbonation. Only thing where this beer could improve to me is in getting a bit more body. All else is sublime and well executed. It could use some more intensity in flavors as well, but overall a greta brew.
