Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. An unclear, golden colored beer, flat as a pancake. Berries, honey and a generic fruityness in the aroma. Pretty vinous too. It’s full-bodied and almost flat, with boozy notes. Apricots, honey, vinous booze and some faint peppery notes in the flavor. Lasting boozy finish. Not sure about this one, I like the vinous touch although it’s too boozy, but then it’s too boozy... Nice aromas and flavors though. 140215

Bottle - Sweet apple and light barrel notes. Cloudy gold with no head. Apples and some oak notes. More like a boozy cider. Not a fan.

Bottle thanks to Tom at RBESG 2014. It pours hazy gold with suspended particles and small white head. The nose is earthy, brett, funk, apple pie, candy, wood, mild acidity, hay and barnyard. The bitter, acidic, big wood, earth, funk, barnyard, alcohol, vinous, brandy and even more wood with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A bit woody and boozy.... Too much for me.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, yeast and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sour& sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with an well above average brew.
