This is an interesting beer, complex taste but a bit too sour. It would be worth trying again

leghorn99 (113) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 18, 2015
Questa Speciale Reserva 2010 ha un colore ramato profondo, tendente al rossiccio; la schiuma non è molta, marrone chiaro e di scarsa persistenza. Olfatto complesso, fruttato di ciliegie sotto spirito e di prugne, vinoso alcolico, leggermente acetico, terroso, con qualche sensazione di legno. In bocca è aspra ed acida, citrica, ma soprattutto vinosa ed acetica, molto carbonata, alcoolica (13% dichiarati!) che ti picchia dura nel palato, ma anche fruttata, di ciliegia e prugna, e sotto sotto una base dolce con i suoi malti... e la vaniglia del legno. Una leggera astringenza finale, corpo normale, quasi esile vista la gradazione.

11,2 oz bottle multiple times from notes. Pours a clear dark amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian character, sweetness balanced by tart fruit, red wine character, oak, no sign of the abv, I always enjoy seeing this one, a favorite from my early days on the site that I get to revisit from time to time.

minutemat (2496) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
330ml bottle (2012) from the brewery. Saved for a special occasion. And that occasion was me running low on beer. Hugely complex sour with all sorts of murky oaky red wine flavours getting a nose in. Powerful, exceptional sour.

thepeter (325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
2009 bottle. Pours a dark and hazy brown off white head that stayed around a while. Aroma of tart sour, wood, apples (granny smith) and a touch of dark fruit. Taste is raisin, wood, field grass and apple. A hint of sweetness up front and a gorgeous Dry and refreshing and tart on the finish. Medium MF. Just a fantastic beer.

NeuroPliny (222) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Poured from a bottle at Birch & Barley, Washington, DC, into a stem glass. Taste back to back with the base. Pours dark mahogany with quickly fading tan head. Nose is grape skin, sour apple, bing cherry, caramel, and rhubarb. Flavour is sour apple and sour cherry. Very tart! There are also notes of wine, oak, caramel, and roasted malts. Exquisite!
