Corked bottle from Tavour. First are notes of fresh figs and woody notes. A little raisins and deep blood orange pulp. Quite well rounded and lingering yeast. A little one note. pushkinwow (2910) - Ottawa, CANADA - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle at Per’s Almost gone tasting, March 2017. Wow I don’t get this one...makes me think of a banana vinaigrette combined with a caramel flambe. Eek. Pours a dull mahogany with a light brown head. Maybe the base beer was good, but gets overwhelmed by tannin, barrels and sourness that creates an almost undrinkable mess with vinegar, spice, oak and tannin. TexasMac (22) - - MAY 19, 2017

My Bottom Line: Lubiere (14196) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
Acetic acidity, bourbon-laced wood and earthy tobacco can’t seem to gel in this flaccid barrel-aged concoction.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy dull red brown.
-Mouthfeel is a bit vinous, but mostly limp.
-The vinegary character is overdone.
-The base beer has been nearly entirely consumed by the barrel’s microflora.
A hazed dark amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light bourbon barrel notes, bubble gum, nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with light acidity, light cork, grapeskin, nice and complex. Bottle at Per’s Almost gone tasting, March 2017. omhper (25833) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2017
Bottled at Ottawa gathering. Cloudy amber, small head. Oaky vinous nose. Tart with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Woody tartness, slight marzipan, red wine. Peppery finish. Elegant and tasty. MarcoDL (5418) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2016
At Hopishop 2016. Aroma of peat, red fruit, smoke, oak and tart. Taste has mild tart, smoke, red fruit, oak and lacto sourness. This beer is a mess, but lickily a somewhat tasty one. 77ships (11412) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2016
Bomber sampled @ HopisHop B.U.M.B. 2016. 2013 Vintage. Dark brown, little bubbles. Nose is very oxidized, vinegar, sour cherry, acidic, varnish, this aint right even for a Wine BA beer. Taste is flat glue, varnish, acid, nail poolish, rubbish cherry & unripe fruit. This clearly ain’t right. Varnish & glue body. Surprised at this being currently a top 50 Abbey Dubbel on RB, maybe a bad bottle?
