330 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Dark brown pour with a frothy beige head. The aroma really showcases the oak and red wine with only a hint of sourness. By the time I have typed this far the head has quickly disappeared. Surprisingly tart taste with an undercurrent of chocolate that helps to cut the sour bite. The marriage of red wine, oak, cocoa, raspberry, just a touch of coffee, and the slight warmth from the alcohol all blend together beautifully. An exceptional sour ale.

Has a plum wine aroma where you can actually smell the sour, and a sweet long finish that reminds me of my favorite wine. Excellent, and easy on the palate. Has a fizzy head, and a dark red brown color.

omhper (19306) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2010 Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm (as Cuvée Freddy Bourgogne OA, 8%). Cloudy dark brown, minimal airy head. Vinous, buttery Rodenbach-like lactic nose. Tart and vinous with light spritzy mouthfeel and above medium body. Lactic and cherryish, dominated by welloaked red wine. Fresheningly sour, deepand comples with lots of tannine bitterness. Only slight roastiness remains from the Mano Negra. Feels like a deluxe Rodenbach Grand Cru with more concentrated flavours and a delicious addition of dry oaky red wine. Despite the rich flavuors it stays elegant. I really, really enjoyed this one!

shrubber85 (7515) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle (gift from Travlr - huge thanks - bottle says 8%). Vinegar and vinous berry aroma - smells spectacular. Opaque brown with no head. Slightly sweet fruity wine flavor up front with a dry/musty finish. Nice body. Very smooth and nicely balanced. This is a sour I could drink every day.

77ships (3680) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Dark brown with some beige bubbles - smells of sweet licorice, Belgian yeast and dark fruits, Christmas spices, cherry, raisins, wood - taste of sweet licorice, belgian yeast, Christmas pudding & spices, sweet wine / vinous and wine barrel, sweet touches before the light cherry mainly wine sour rounding - smooth, lesser carb. easy to drink - damn fine stuff

bierkoning (10000) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Deep dark brown color. Vinous aroma with grapes, cherry and oak, like a fortified and matured Rodenbach Grand Cru. Odd mix of dried fruit with coffee as initial flavors, challenged and conquered finally by an upcoming tartness. Vinous flavors, oak, cherry, roast, tobacco. Extremely complex and the balance is questionable, but this beer is so good.........

This is a lovely sour beer. Nice change of scenery for this tasting. Caramel, but sour. Prunes and other dried fruit.

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Dark brown ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention. The aroma is roasty, vinous, chocolaty, caramely and acidic – chocolate covered sour cherries, French oak, red wine and caramel. Smells very much like a porter that was transformed into a wild ale. Full-bodied and creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor is caramel, chocolate, toasted nuts and sour cherries. Finishes tart, tangy, moderately roasty and mildly bitter. World class brew courtesy of darkguardian!

TomDecapolis (4459) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Thanks to hopdog. Pours a very deep amber pushing a deep brown with a medium bubbly creamy off white head. Aroma of tart cherries, oak, lactic sourness, light wine. Really great aroma. Flavor of tart cherries, red wine, light vinegar, chocolate, vanilla, oak and an overall sourness.

In bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin light tan head. Lovlely sour nose with barley, hay, horse-blanket, balsamic vinegar and chocolate. Balsamic vinegar flavour upfront with coffee, chocolate, barley and hay. Quite highly carbonated with a fair CO2 prickle. Great!
