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.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2011
Bottlled. Deep reddish amber colour with a small off-white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is sour wood with some tart berries and mild sweetish malts. Flavour is quite similar with the tart berries coming through most evident. The higher ABV helps out balancing up some of the sourness and tartness.

Deep reddihs brown cloudy beer. Acidic nose. This beer was aged in sherry barrels and rhubarb wine barrels! Dry crisp palate. Very sour beer! Sour generic fruit leading to a little woody oak, then more strong sourness with a fruity herbal edge. Medicinal and dry wood finish. Highly unusual beer, tasty and refreshing but absoloutely could not drink more than a single bottle.
