75cl bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, courtesy of Mike. Thanks Mike. Pours hazy deep amber, medium off-white head. Fairly sweet sugary aroma, taste is unrecognisable from the original. Lovely sweet-shop fruits, sherbet, not sure about the red wine influence, some woody barrel. Like it.

Fin (11067) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle I picked up from Beer Gonzo webshop, Earlsdon, Coventry, shared with Ang’ and Chris O, at Moncada Brewery Tap, Friday 21st October 2016 Pours hazy amber with a white head. Nice beer but it’s a bit too soapy, not bothered about the red wine ageing. In fact if truth be known I am both underwhelmed and a little disappointed in this. . A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

PotjeBier (3838) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2016
Keg @ In De Wildeman, small sample, courtesy of Simon, thanks! Quite clear, pinkish copper color. Frothy off white head. Aroma’s: sourish, vinous, light brett-funk, wood. Retronasal it’s sourish, funky, vinous, woody. Flavor is light sour, light sweet, brett-funky. Medium bodied. Finish is rather bitter (or was it the flavor of the Dakuwaqa that I had right before this? In other words: needs a retry...)
