COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.
8.5% alc. 20 ibu. Serve at 8-12C

tomekboniek (512) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brązowa. Brak piany. Aromat kwaśny, winny, dziki. W smaku duża kwaśność wiśniowo-porzeczkowa, praktycznie brak nut beczkowych. Dodatkowo w smaku można doszukać się wyraźnych nut winnych charakterystycznych dla czerwonego wytrawnego wina. Goryczka niska, rozgrzewająca przełyk. Zdecydowanie ciekawe piwo, szkoda, że baczka tak słabo zaznaczona.

metalspice (659) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2015
svart med noen rød/lilla toner., nesten uten skum. Eik, eplekart, aske og lær i duften. Smaken er kompleks med flere lag av surhet. Eik fremtredende også i smaken. Noe bitterhet sammen med surheten. Lang ettersmak som også inneholder noe karamell. Tørr avslutning. Højdare!

Moebbels (715) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2015
A clear red body with no foam. Nose is sour with sweet bourbony oak notes. Taste is quite sour with a lingering puckering finish. Low carbonation and oily medium palate. The oak comes through nicely but I find that it’s a bit too sour for my taste.

Piana sycząca, znika od razu do zera. Barwa ciemno czerwono brązowa, lekko mętna. Aromat kwaśny, wiśniowy, winny z nutą starego drewna, dzikich drożdży i octu balsamicznego. W smaku wita nas spora kwaśność wiśniowo porzeczkowa, lekka cierpkość dębowej beczki, zaraz za nią czerwone półwytrawne wino, by na końcu przejść w czereśniowo migdałowy, słodkawy posmak. Goryczka niewielka, wyraźnie pestkowa z delikatnie alkoholowym, przyjemnie rozgrzewającym finiszem. Nagazowanie niskie do średniego, orzeźwiające, ale nie wodniste w odczuciu, "bogate w doznania". Bardzo fajnie ułożone piwo - kwaśność o profilu czerwonego wytrawnego wina z fajnie zaznaczoną beczką i dzikością.

Tap. One of best sours I tried lately. Very strong aroma, and sticky, medium bodied structure made it perfect for sipping for nearly an hour.

northropfrye (3248) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 28, 2015
Reddish brown body, off white head, soapy lacing. Wonderful tart aroma, with a hint of red wine, a bit of an earthy funk. Taste is nicely sour, again with a touch of dirt, oakiness, vinous of course, some fruity sweetness, and you can taste the red wine. Sticky palate. Overall a pretty fantastic flemish-style red. Admittedly this is one of my favourite styles, but I am sometimes disappointed with lesser efforts in this style. This one did not disappoint.

SlackerMads (2866) - DENMARK - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle batch 469. In b 4 69. Pours unclear chestnut brown with a tiny off white head. Sour nose with wood, sour fruit, light solvents/nail polish. Flavour is more mild that the nose suggests, has some ash, wood, bark, light sour berries, minerals, lemon, light sour dough or dark rye bread. Medium body, pretty well rounded with mild sweetness, prickling carbonation and mild sourness. Easy going.
