Cerveza con bastante sabor y aroma a Bourbon, quiz demasiado. El sabor a alcohol es inevitable. Muy rica.

Bottle sample @ 19de Internationale BierHappening, Zottegem. Thanks Glenn. Orange/cuivre trouble, col est blanc et fin. Arme est effectivement plein de Bourbon,bouquet garde un ct gnreux belge dans un style belge forte avec un malt confrant une pointe biscuit. Palais est rchauffant, sucre lger roux, profile restant trs belge dans son approche plus que un barley wine comme on les imagine avec le Bourbon qui enveloppe tout le palais, ici le bois reste subtile. Lalcool est bien prsent et rchauffe le palais et garde ce fini malt caramel sur un beau ptillant. Bois est subtile, avec un profile fruit pche ferment qui indique la base de Melchior. Pointe houblonne vient en fin de bouche et contribue subtilement lajout trs discret dune amertume fleuri. Pas mauvaise, mais l on drive un peu de loriginal Melchior qui perd ici quasi toute la prsence de graine de moutarde.

jackl (7704) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pours light hazy golden orange wwith a small head. The nose is of apple cider, some sweet bourbon and a splash of wood barrel. Forest fruit sweetness. The taste is soft apricot, more berry, borbon and caramel. Vanilla flavors. Boozy but not oppressively so. A restrained barrel treatment. Pretty tasty stuff.

Boreft Beer Festival 2012. Cloudy copper with no head. Aroma of dried fruit, with laquer, alcohol and a funky touch. Sweet, funky and yeasty flavour
