wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Blend 2 Bottled 2/24/10
Tasted on 9/17/13 from a capped 750mL bottle that has been in the cellar for quite some time. Pours dark, opaque, mahogany with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is very tart with tons of lemon acidity, white wine vinegar, a touch of burnt rubber funk, and just a light hint of the caramel malt that is obviously providing the darkness of this beer. The flavor is extremely sour and tart with tons of lemon, wine vinegar (very vinous), a nice touch of vanilla oak, and a very nice caramel malt underlying. The body is medium with a woody, tannic texture, lively carbonation, and a long, super sour and vinous finish. This beer with age is otherworldly.

Suttree (6290) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Very dark brown, with thin white foam. Lots of cherry and red wine aromas, plus some oak. Flavor is more of the same, plus some balsamic vinegar. I enjoyed putting this into me.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2017 375ml bottle. Tack Adam! Poured cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Sourish, funky aroma, some mild vinegar, green apples. Flavor has green apples, vinegar, tartness, red berries. Dry, sour finish. Interesting, flanders style.

No idea how it is Biere de Garde here, since it is really nice Flanders. Not very extreme in any side, but really well done.

bigtaster (951) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2017
From a bomber into snifter. Light brown, almost no head, clear. Nose is mild with a hint of funk, some caramel malt. Body is smooth, very little carbonation. I think the bottle was past prime but interesting none the less.

neongolden (1448) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2017
(375ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours a lightly hazed copper with a few stray white bubbles. Aroma is rather acidic and woody with moderate funk overall, notes of tart grapes and berries, lactic citrus, light acetic notes, oak, leather, soft caramel, orchard floor fruity funk, light spice? Flavour is tart but not heavily sour, grapes, light notes of cherry and tart cranberry, a touch of citrus, some slightly sweet caramel malt notes, increasing dryness from the oak, leather, a bit of earth, maybe some bittering hops, persistent tart grape, a little soap/solvent thing on the back end which is distracting. Lightly spicy Brett. Very dry, slightly bitter and tannic aftertaste Light to medium bodied with almost no carb. As the label says, feels like a Flanders red as much as a Biere de Garde, definitely on the sour side for the latter. Nice stuff despite the funny note towards the finish.

Caoba opaco y espuma de un marfil sucio. Aromas de fruta verde ácida, ciruela, uva,cuero, piel de naranja. En boca es igual con final seco.
