sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2013
Bouteille 33cl. Acajou, col crmeux moyen blanc cass. Arme est fruit noir-rouge, houblonn moyen sur qcq effluves citronnes le tout gardant un bouquet agrable de caramel ferment-grains et malts. Palais offre de suite un bon taux dalcool, ce dernier devient rchauffant au fil de la dgustation. Le tout garde un fruit persistant et pouvant rappeler un raisin blanc accompagn de qcq notes de fruits rouges. Effervescence est moyenne. En retrait, je note un beau profil fleuri des houblons avec qcq rsidus de levure. Fini est sec, liquoreux avec un rappel malt oscillant sur du pils, caramel, ple et toujours ce petit ct fruit-citronn. Bonne bire, mais au final je nai pas vraiment retrouv lide dun barley.

ClubGonzo (5653) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle from Les Fleurs du Malt (the shop), Lyon. Pours a deep clear bronze-hued amber body with a medium creamy light beige head, looking quite delicious. Nose is caramel, burnt sugar, grains, straw, nuts and hints of red fruits, butterscotch and alcohol. Taste is major red fruits, wine gum, grains, caramel, alcohol and hints of toffee, raisins and white sugar. Bitter, resinous finish. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. Nice and fruity BW, a bit different from the regular English or American ones; more in the Belgian territory perhaps.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAR 21, 2013
It pours dark brown with a huge beige foam head that slightly disappears. It smells dried fruits and solvent plus amazing and very strange estery perfume-like floral/violet aromas in mouth. Very strong bitterness in aftertaste. This is a - strange, but nice, and a bit too alcoholic and unbalanced - Barley wine. Difficult to finish a bottle. The most interesting thing here is: thats French.

erickok (5858) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2013
Deep brown body with stable tan, big lace. Interesting and uncommon aroma with figs, pumpkin, dry wood and dry yeast. However, the taste is even more bizarre. Very sharp, ginger, chili, foelie. Astringent taste, strong spice flavour, odd and not very nice to be honest. Surprised this is brewed without spices. What happened here? Unique aroma and taste but... Sorry, not for me. (33cl bottle from Bire Rvolution)
