Pretty silly beer. Like a sour BW with little character or verve. Cherry, tannins, wood, under carbonated body. Sour lactic finish. Pretty dull. Imagine a flat lou pepe that has been left in the sun and this is what you might get. AndySnow (7557) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2013
Bottle at RBJG 2 Grand Tasting, thanks KyotoLefty. Light brown with a small brown head that leaves some lacing. Sour grape aroma. Mild sour aroma. Doesn’t taste like a barley wine. Travlr (24307) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at RBJG courtesy of KyotoLefty, thanks! Cloudy amber color. Aroma of sour plums, prunes. Taste is sweet and sour summer fruit, in an odd combo. KyotoLefty (10197) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2012
750 ml bottle at Asahiya, shared among a group. Aroma of peaches, melon, wine, as well as a paint-like solvent character. Pretty pink-red color with lace. Flavor of blood orange, peach, melon, wine. They said it was aged in wine casks, but I haven’t been able to confirm it yet. Tasted like it could have been. Much better than the Blanc, and probably will be better in the couple years, though I don’t see it being very good in 10. They’ll probably sell some for 10 times this silly price at that time.
