Silver foiled, capped and corked 12 ounce bottel.

A: Pours a hazed dark orange/amberish under a one-inch thick slightly off-white head which slowly fades to a thin cap and leaves clumpy lace.

N: Cork, oak without tannins - mostly wood, damp earth, sour wheat, tart fruits, vinous (white grape), lovely spontaneous barnyard funk.

T: Sweetness at first, funk, malts, fresh cut hay, apples, pears, peaches, cherries, cider, minerality and then sweet again.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Mildly sweet and syrupy finish.

O: Oh so good as a companion to after meal desserts. Extremely easy drinking. Wonder how this might age???

37,5 cl. bottle. Dark amber colour, with a medium head and good retention and lace. Smell of grapes, apples, sherry, oak, cider. Medium to light body, sour palate, though you can notice clearly the sugar added. Taste is acid apples, oak, cider. Very pleasant, though I like best the usual gueuze with no sugar.

Date:7/28/14
Location: Half Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip

Appearance: Amber to light brown in color with an off white to tan well carbonated head. The beer itself is very clear when held to the light. There are some large yeast flakes inside the bottle. Average retention. Decent cling.
Aroma: Sweet in aroma with a syrupy cherry smell. Candied sugars. No hop presence.
Taste: Again the flavors are very sweet from the candied sugars. More fruits announce themselves in the flavor like plums, grapes and a very light cherry. There might be the slightest hint of hop bitterness in the back but it's hardly noticeable. The cherries linger in the end.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel shines. It's a very luscious syrupy flavor that coats the tongue and cheek. Medium body and medium to medium high carbonation hits my throat and tongue.

Notes: Capped and Corked.
