Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle at 3rd pre-ZBF. Pours clear orange with no head. Aroma of wine and some oak. Slightly sour flavor with the wine being too much present. Some fruits, slightly bitter finish but also with some sweetness. Too low carbonation. Its more of a wine than a beer.

3.3
madsberg (11762) - Sborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2010
Bottled. Orange colourd. Unclear. Small beige head. Sourness, light yeast, some fruits and calva in the aroma. Flavour is sour and yeasty as well. loads of alcohol notable and wood as well. Tense grape and grass. Medium bodied. Sourish and grapy end. Not really something for me this one.

3.8
GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Travlr. Red apple skin nose. Pours a cloudy, chunky from the yeast, bright, deep orange. Taste is like very good spiked unfiltered apple cider. Boozy, a bit syrupy on the palate. Very sweet with massive red apple character. Its pretty damn good but if blind tasting I would put in under ice cider or something.

3.8
Travlr (24307) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Hazy amber color, thin white head. Aroma of apple sauce and light spice. Taste is apples, cinnamon, some citrus. Interesting and complex, more like a cider than a beer.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle. A hazy medium to dark golden beer iwth a large, rocky, fully lasting white head. Nicely sour aroma, moderately malty and with notes of oak, apples, Calvados, roasted grains, flowers, alcohol and spices. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Calvados is evident, but the balance is fairly good. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Slightly better than the regular Melchior, normally Im not a fanatic of barrel aging, but this time was very well done.
