Overall: Decent. Fules (1426) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - OCT 7, 2017
Hatalmas, örökké tartó, bézs hab, vörösesbarna szín. Savanykás, karamelles, gabonás, némileg fűszeres illat. Enyhén savanykás, karamelles , malátás ízvilág, markáns fűszeres aromákkal. Testes, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Fura kombináció és nem is igazán ízlik. crazy_cat_lady (748) - - JUL 16, 2017
Old review from June 19, 2015. Bottle from LCBO. Orangey light brown with white fluffy head. Hoppy nose, hints of caramel and toffee. Tastes of toffee with a very prominent hop bite at the end. Not bad. I still prefer English barleywines. Ended up not being able to finish my glass of this, the bitter hop and caramel sweetness started to turn my stomach after a bit.

Nice dried fruits, jam, some floral hops, overripe orange, orange peel. Light to moderate sweet with lasting bit overwhelming tartness, decent bitterness. Decent but bit offbalanced.

I’m a huge fan of beers from this brewery, except this one. I accidentally purchased a big bottle of their special edition version of their barrel-aged barleywine that uses Brett yeast, which sours it. I know that’s what is supposed to happen, but I prefer not to drink beers that taste like vinegar. I wish I had read the label more closely when I bought this at the brewery. Very disappointing. Having said that, if you’re a fan of sour beers, I’m sure this one is pretty good. Read other reviews for that assessment. worldbeertaste (1819) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
