(bottle, vielen dank stefan!) hazy deep golden colour with a small frothy off-white head. aroma of acetone and wine-soaked raisins, with some house-character barnacles, brown bread, peppermint and roast beef. flavour is more barnacles, yeast and bread crusts, with a heavy yeastiness, some walnuts, herbal hops and a rather dry cherry skin finish. medium-bodied with zero carbonation. jonas (8880) - Garching b.

Decanted sample. Hazy darm amber, soapy bubbles. Very broad fresh wood notes: Green mossy, mahagoni, cherry, sherry soaked oxidation, quite some fruitiness in the aroma. Very dry mouthfeel, lactic and vinegar acid, green wood, very old wood, tannic notes, old orangepeel, papaya. Very tart acidic oxidized finished. anstei (3074) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2018
Bottle, batch 2 (or first Solera), decanted for more than an hour. Pours like a lambic should. Aroma is Sherry, lambic funk, wood. Body is very similar to B1, litlle more oil, sourer too. Still an amazing beer. Would drink again, but not worth the secondary market price - Flights to Brussels are cheaper. SinH4 (8125) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2018
UPDATED: APR 3, 2018 Bottle, many thanks anstei & dzudohonor! Decanted for a couple of hours in a 3l Calanda Bräu glass, it smelled like Böchser at first. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is Oloroso, sherry, nutty, wood, leathery. Taste is lots of Oloroso, nutty, leathery, gooseberries, classic Geuze flavours. Late wood and balanced tannins. Oily mouthfeel with natural carbonation. Absolutely excellent, but I got more sherry flavours from the first batch - this somehow works better.

Bottle @ droom. Pours towards clear amber with a white head. Aroma of refreshing dry funk, lemon, floral notes, vanilla, some sweet barrel notes which reference the olorosso and the px sherry - a Lil more towards the olorosso. Taste of lemon, complex funk profile, sweet barrel notes, grapes, oily white wine, subtle sweet sherry notes and just really well balanced and complex. Nothing sticks out in this - just a pure enjoyment! Once again I am really impressed!
