Bottle opened up at the 2016 Ottawa Year-end Gathering. Clear copper with a beige head. Red wine and oak dominate at first but then settle down once things open up, allow room for yeast, fig, candied orange peels. Moderate carbonation and full body, smooth, dries out with a nice boozy finish. Liked this one. Sarlacc83 (2290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle thanks to Douglas. This was a big time want!
A: Opaque brown with a creme color head and lacing.
N: Leather, caramel, oak, red wine, oak, peppercorn, clove, grapes, toffee, vanilla, fig, raisin, cherry, sherry and honey.
T: Sweet and soured. But not in that infuriating infected way.
M: Medium-heavy body, very sticky, spritzy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Beautiful beer. It’s so well rounded and the bordeaux adds so much to its already sterling profile. douglas88 (9630) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2016

Rating #3500, my 400th Belgian rating. Bottle, leaking cork, but still fine. Amber color with white head. Aroma is nutty, sherry, vineous. Taste is vineous, tart, figs, sherry, red wine, nutty, so much complexity. Medium to high carbonation. Totally worth its hype. One of the best drinks I’ve ever had. anstei (2610) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, many thanks! Pours hazy amber. Aroma is strong wine barrel, but also sweet. Body is heavy boozy, vinous, fruity, even a little sweet, but also a little sour, candy, lively to fizzy carbonation. Palate is rather light, even tart, lingering with the wine characters. Absolutely worth the hype, an outstanding beer.
