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.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
Batch #149, bottled 10/10/06, courtesy of Sara (not sure what her name is on RB). Dark brown with rich tan foam, very nice retention, especially for the style. Nose is very solventy, lots of nail polish remover, some cherry pie notes and a little oak also. Very tough to get by aroma, got better as it warmed, but sharp when it was first poured. Lots of oak on the flavor, some sharp acidity for a brief moment mid palate and finishes with some cherry pie and slight anise note. Very full bodied.

Una norwegian pale ale. Algunos le dice sour Red, envejecida en barricas de roble. No es mi preferida pero no está mal

bursprak (763) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy bronze with a tiny head that vanishes after a few seconds. Loads of acidic notes, balsamic vinegar, leather, oak, caramel and vanilla. Really tart and complex.

wihlan (330) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2014
Flaska från systemet - Mörk med vitt skum som försvinner direkt. Frisk arom, smaken är som en spontanjäst och mycket syrlig. Dessvärre smakar den bara surt.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Mörkt rödbrun med låg skumkant runt glaset. Sötsur doft av körsbär. SUR! Åt kriek hållet, sur med låg sötma. Liten maltighet med beska i eftersmaken.

Lilja (1781) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2014
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av karamell, vinäger, brunt socker, körsbär, röda bär, trä med toner av mjölkbakterier. Lagom sötma, fin syrlighet och fruktighet. Gott!

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish brown with...no head! Aroma is chocolate, caramel, wood and fruits. Flavor is...SOUR. Very fruity. Dark fruits. Finish is woody, still very fruity, sour. Some bourbon. Lingering wood and sourness. Body is light to medium and carbonation is low, almost null. Somewhat lacking in balance...

Köpt på Systembolaget Ringen, Stockholm. Fin för att vara så hög alkoholhalt, men saknar karaktär i syran. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Peter_L (882) - SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Flaska från SB. Syrlig, maltig doft med antydan av röda bär. Syrlig smak med ett lite torrt avslut. Minus för munkänslan som går mot oljighet, inte kul.
