Nice slightly bubbly-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet concentrated sour-ish fruity, sour raspberries, fruit stones, oak, bourbon, sour cherries, sorrel, berry skin, mild vinegar, soda powder, dark malts, old rope, hay, grass, bark. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish fruity, berry skin, sour raspberries, sorrel, mild bourbon, grass, oak, fruit stones, hay, minerals, dark malts, dried sour cherries, soda powder, bark. Medium bitterness, slightly dry sour-ish fruity mouthfeel. Nice one.
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a clear, reddish brown with a small, lacing off-white head. Tart, berry-like aroma with a hint of Bourbon. Medium body, very tart berry notes and a distinct Bourbon edge. The base beer however seems to be pretty much annihilated - it could've been pretty much anything. The massive tartness cannot all be from the berries, clearly there's some barrel infection going on as well. Maybe it has developed later since the beer's description doesn't mention it at all. It kinda works since the Bourbon also mellows it quite a bit. But a very challenging beer. 281117 Cokemonkey11 (1148) - - NOV 11, 2017
