Brasserie BFM-Terrapin Spike & Jerome's
Brasserie BFM-Terrapin Spike & Jerome’s. The beer pours a caramel color with a thin bubbly cream colored head. The aroma consists of vinegar, cherry, caramel, and sugar. The taste is lightly sour with lots of vinegar and a raspberry and cherry tart flavors. There is a sugary pie-like finish. A lingering pepper finish sticks around for a little while with an oaky taste. The alcohol content is 10.0276% ABV. I can’t say I picked up the rum flavor in this beer, but it was a great sour barley wine. It was my first experience with this style, but it was similar to a Flanders Red.
