COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ONE TIME BREW! Based beer is BFM’s La Mandragore (8% ABV Winter Stout brewed with jurassian spelt wheat and a complex mix o’ malts) that was maturing in wine barrels. Then it was accidentally frozen in the barrels due to the harsh and extremely cold winter this year in Switzerland.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bouteille 33 cl de erzbierschof.ch. Aspect et couleur d’huile de vidange, mousse absente. Nez fruité avec de l’aigreur et du boisé, pruneau sec, vinaigre balsamique, sauce soja. La bouche est aigre-douce, avec une acidité vineuse, du fruité de cerise et pomme aigre, du réglisse, des notes balsamiques et vinaigrées. Une bière aigre à l’ancienne qui aurait sa place à Oudenaarde. Intéressante et je boirai la 2ème bouteille sans trop de procrastination.

yesferro (2) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 5, 2013 does not count
This one threw me off bad, I did not expect a sour with an eisbock on the label. terribly flat, very weird clingy mouth feel. Pucker up sour mixed with oak, not sure what to think here
