Hazy cider colored with very little head. Aroma is like a cider fermented with brett. Sweet and spicy with that pleasant pineapple and barn. Taste is the same, with more bretty bitterness and tannic woodiness well after the finish. Some warming alcohol.

bottle at the Pre-ZBF pours amber with no head. Aroma is fruity and sweet smelling with faint wood notes. This one turned out more bitter than the Bourgogne, but it is a pleasant spice/earthy bitterness that shines in the finish. A very nice and enjoyable beer.

Interesting beer, though not entirely successful. The calvados barrel comes through with mostly sharp, boozy notes. Some green apple is lurking in there, but it’s just a bit harsh and mostly mixes in with the general fruitiness of the beer, which may be from the barrel - hard to tell. Aroma is a bit medicinal. Mustard is also fairly subtle and I mostly picked it up in the taste. Some caramel malt, some spice. Fairly dry. Mouthfeel is a tad thin but still pretty good. Not a bad looking beer - a cloudy yellow with a fizzy, dying head.

Part of the first German beer tasting in Idar-Oberstein. Thanks to Steptin. Light orange color with no head. Aroma is pine, and sweet candy. The taste is very sour and some spice, Palate is terible. Not a good beer at all in my book. Why would someone want to drink this?

Fra flaske, dufter let syrlig af egetræ... grumset.... smagen er let syrlig med egetræ smag... eftersmagen er dejlig ... humle... og egetræ.... ialt i alt en dejlig øl!

tmrmwel (2058) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2017
Bottle, shared with BBGTC, enjoyed two years after bottling. Pours slightly cloudy, dark golden, with almost no head. Aroma is sweet malty notes, with berries, wine grapes, tannins and stone fruits, as well as wooden barrels. Medium body, with very soft carbonation. Flavour is malts with cereals, toffee, honey and kandi, almond notes, berries, tannins and wooden barrels.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle shared by Dan. Aroma is dulled hops; citrus, and resin; oak, peach and mustard. Pours chunky and murky with small chunky film. Looks like cider sludge. Taste is pleasant with peach notes, vanilla oak, slight bar mustard and a resin hop finish. Nice enough but I was unimpressed.

wetherel (1881) - Cupertino, California, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Dasilky1 tasting. Dec 13th 2009. Bottle opened by WeeHeavySD. Thanks Jon! Deep yellow color. Maybe a little cloudy (I like cloudy for some reason). Some oxidation, which is nice. Leans dry. Somewhere between a saison and a Belgian triple. Fruity. Very good.

2.6
Abio (1869) - BERMUDA - MAR 4, 2011
Light orange coloured beer with no head. The taste is sour sweet, spiced, just like the aromas. I miss gas in this beer. Not totally my thing.
