Ruikt idd naar balsamico azijn. Heel vreemd. Heel zuur en beetje azijn nasmaak. Speciaal!

looking through my ratings, seems i missed this one. during BBF 13 i believe. deep dark red amber pour with a white head. remember that the 2 version was was better with the cherries involved. tart vinegar taste, red fruits, oak, spiced yeast.

0,33l fles gedeeld bij bryan. Gusher, bruin met ene crème kraag. Geur is leer met balsamico en vingerverf. Smaak is peperig, zoetzuur met een appeltje in de afdronk.

30/XI/14 - 33cl bottle from the brewery @ home - BB: IX/2015 (2014-1454)

Clear deep ruby red to purple brown beer, big creamy beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: Rodenbach smell! Sourish, some balsamic, bit caramelized, lemony, earthy. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very sour lemony start, lots of oxidation, like a very old sourish Liefmans Goudenband, caramel, vinegar. Aftertaste: spicy touch, very oxidized, orange peel, dusty, old, very sour.

A disappointing beer from this usually brilliant brewery. Tastes more or less like the average sour Belgian brown beer. Doesn’t remind me of balsamic vinegar.

Trübes kupferfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, leicht säuerlich, würzig, Essig. Geschmack malzig, fruchtig säuerlich, Essig, Gewürze.

Christian (13769) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2014
At Borefts Beer Festival 2013. hazy copper with a small off-white head. Malty aroma with diacetyl, and a touch of vinegar. Sweet and tart caramel and diacetyl flavour with vinegar notes

tricksta_p (5009) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Aroma of balsamico vinegar, red fruit, oak, ’appelstroop’. Flavour is vinegar sourness, but also some brown sugary sweetness. An interesting and satisfactory experiment.

Draught @ 5th Borefts Beer Festival 2013, Brouwerij de Molen, Bodegraven, Netherlands.

Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Paul. Pours lightly unclear brown with a weak, white foam head. Definitely some hefty vinegar in the aroma, some leathery fruits, berries. Light sweet flavor with stinging vinegar, light aged fruits, toffee, bread. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. More throat-burning vinegar to finish - it wakes you up - with slight oxidation notes, old fruits and toffee. Not bad.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared at Bruce’s. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is tangy dark fruits, wood, big balsamic vinegar, rubber, cola, acetic and lactic notes. The taste is tangy, balsamic vinegar, acid burn, cola, dark fruits, wood, earth and faint caramel with a dry, somewhat acidic finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Not as bad as I thought. Still doubt I would drink much of it.
