I love this spl beer with taste of sour like tart cherry. At first sip my lip pucker and I can taste many rock fruit blend of cherry, apricot or even peach. This beer I select from store at recommend from shop owner who know I am a man who like full boost flavour. He tell me this is spl b’coz of aging in barrel like fine wine. I think this is one of my new favourite beer. I wish it have more alcohol b’coz at 5.5% I think this is low boost.

Pours clear red-amber. Poor head retention. Aromas of cherry, dried fruit, medium-intense sourness and a hint of brett. Taste is very slightly sweet, heavily sour, with presence of apple, cherries, and subtle hints of oak lactones. full body, slick feel, average carbonation, long astringent finish. It makes you salivate like hell. Best sour ale I’ve had so far

330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Very pleasant sour aroma, gently woody, but not over-oaky, some berry hints. Very sharp palate, lovely sourness, but no vinegar fortunately - this is ageing done correctly. Finish magnificent, the sharp berriness hangs around for ever, and mellows to a lovely sweet red bruin. Balance between sweetness of the base beer and the sourness from the ageing is just right.
