Pours light red with golden hues, lite head. Nose is acetic, but lacking the harsh tones I would expect. Taste is amazing, clean, Belgian flavors of spice and fruit, mixed with wine tannins and wine sweetness. Almost port like. Feel is nice, so smooth and clean; could have more carbonation but very nice. Overall, very amazing with a great mix of aged stille nacht and wine. One of the best beers I've had in a long time.

Raisiny, vinous and malty with a pleasant oxidation.

This beer wow'd me. The barrel comes through nicely and great wine notes throughout. Very little carbonation but that doesnt take away from this beer. Nothing like its base - World Class beer

Big thanks to MrKennedy for sharing. Reviewed from notes

Pours a burnished amber, largely clear with a very persistent just off-white head.

Intoxicating (ahem) marriage of Flanders Red and Belgian Strong. Sour cherry, marzipan, figs, woody tannins and mild hints of ethyl acetate.

Body is light and accommodating for the ABV. Jazzy carbonation leads it to a mellow mildly tart conclusion.

Just a fantastic beer and as good as I remember it from 15 months ago. Everything in near-perfect harmony.
