Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2017
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Amber ish red brown body. Lively head, gone in seconds. Nose is vinous, grapes, wood, malts, some caramel, some hints of funk and berries... Flavours of bitters, rubber, wine, light tart and funk touch, some malts, light caramel, berries, spice, light candy sweet/marzipan tint. But mostly wine and bitters... Aftertaste is bitter, wood, rubber, malt, light funk, vinous... Low carbo, creamy cose to silky mouthfeel, between medium and lightly fuller bodied. Starts quite elegant and classic but then the bitterness seems to have stopped at the wrong pick up point... close to nasty bitterness continueing into the aftertaste... Very decent beer though!

Hazy deep amber beer, small cream colour head. Strong winey nose, touch of gueuze. Palate is quite light and mildly dry, modest fine carbonation. Light malts. Tones of wine, both red wine and a little white wine. Fruity tang and floral grape. Even more wine intensity. A light gueuzey sour punch underneath seems to be projecting the wine forward. The light malts have enough sweetness to hold it all together. Cracking beer. Probably not was was intended but who cares? End result is a winey treat. As Rob (Borresteijn) says below - no cognac, wine all the way.

Svesse (8359) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2017
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 25 Feb 2017) Reddish amber colour, hazy, with foamy beige head. Fruity, yeasty nose with notes of caramel, brett, oak wood, red wine and spicy yeast. Malty, tart taste with caramel, oak wood, brett, sour cherries and a finish where a slight sweetness balances the sourness and a balanced bitterness. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. Quite interesting. Stands the risk of going overboard, but stays fairly balanced. Nice one.

skortila (5685) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottled. The aroma has citrus, raisin, booze. Clear,brown coloured beer with a thin, off-white lace. the taste is light-moderate bitter, has quite some dried fruit sweetness, some sourness, red wine, booze. Would probably be better if there was less booze n barrel. Not bad though.

Bottle [thanks to Caesar] @ home. Clear red to red-brown color, virtually no head. Aroma is malts, oak, red wine. Taste malts, tart, sweetness in the background, red wine, sour dry oak. (Dutch) "wrang". Ok body and carbonation. Meh at best, dont like it. Sweet, citrus, vanilla and cognac? Absolutely not.

Borresteijn (6816) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2017
On tap at Bierlokaal de Uiver. Hazy amber colour, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, raisins, red wine, grape, wood, some Brett, sweet malts. Flavour is light sour, wood, red wine, grape, Brett, acetic, some raisins, toffee, alcohol, bittersweet finish with a little sourness. Full bodied. Great. Dont get any of the cognac mentioned in the commercial description, this is full on red wine. Best Leckere beer so far.
