Sampled at the Bokke / Wine event at Gebrande Winning. 4 Pairings were made to showcase the similarities between wine and beer. This pairing was about Tannines, and the wine used was ' Mas Cotelou - La vigne Haute 2017 ' ( pardon me if I (probably) spelled that wrong ) . The beer pours clear, dark redpink, small white ( bit pink) head. Smell is full, very fruity, oaky. Acidity is very mild. Taste is full, milder tartness, beautifull fruityness. Very juicy, cherries, blackberries. Red grapes, very intense. Still in balance ( as I usually don't like tannines all that much ) , as the lambic still shines trough. Dry, tannines are there, yes, but don't overpower.
Backlog. MBCC 2018. Pours dark lightly hazy red with a small pinkish white head. Aroma has lots of deep grapey notes, lightly tannic, slight funk, elegant floral notes. Taste is lightly acidic, big grapey sweetness and subtle tannic notes in the backend.
From 750 ml bottle at the Muted Horn, Berlin. Dark red ruby color with pink head. Malty and yeasty aroma, barnyard funk, berries, grapes, vanilla notes, wood. Sweet and acidic taste. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.
06/10/2018 - sampled from bottle on RBBSG 2018 Dark red colour, fading pink head. Nose is full red fruits. Taste is red fruits, sour with a sweet syruppy touch. Nice acquaintance with Bokkereyder.
Thank you Martinus! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG 2018. Dark red grape, disappearing pink head. Nose is huge amount of dried grapes, dark grape skins, raisin, figs almost,… Taste is sweetish fruit, red grape, heavy wine, very lingering dried red grape skins that dry out the mouth not perfect or top for the style but very nice interesting drying out red grape skins with almost hint of herbal.

Sampled from bottle @ late RBBSG 2018. Quite beautiful deep dark red-purple to purple color, small pink head. Aroma is dominated by red fruit and cherries. Flavor is odd. Sort of sourish cassis. Lemonade like. With a touch of sour. And red fruit. Ok
deep purple color. Deep inky purple color. Very nice grape that is fairly musty and dry with a touch of oak in the background. Very light body, bone dry. Well balanced. Great grape nut seed. Very rounded. Nice dry grape finish. The different wines don’t shine but all well balanced.
