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! madmitch76 (25321) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2017

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.
(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.
