Purchased at Binny’s, May 2010. Everyone’s hosting sour beer events in advance of FoBAB, so I’m having one, too. With a soft French triple cream brie. Opened carefully since so many of my re-fermented beers have gushered, I instead get a happy "psssht!" and a deep, reddish-brown pours with a short, bubbly head. Smell is a little light in sourness. Probably a good thing, because my mind reaches to recall dirty gym towels for comparison. Luckily the taste helps drive that impression away. The usual tartness of sour cherries, but not very strong. Goes great with the last rinds of my cheese. In fact, after a bite of cheese, the beer seems sweeter. Alcohol is present, and of course it’s a little gassy. With all the strong flavors here, I can’t decided I taste the oak or not. I’ll just say being in a barrel gave it its own population of bugs for sourness.

Bottle at Tilt, april 30th 2016. Dark red body with a medium tanned head. Aroma of vanilla, red berries, toast and oak. Taste is sweet with a medium berry acidity, fruit and almond. Sticky sweet finish, light fruit aftertaste. Too sweet, the sourness doesnt get enough room.

Zilverenmaan (18) - Schoten, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2016
Prachtig roodbruin oud bruin met stevige, blijvende kraag. Aroma aangenaam maar overheerst door vanille, meer dan andere oud bruine bieren. Zelfde geldt voor de frisse, zure (appel ) smaak. Opvallend stroperig ook, gelukkig zonder uitgesproken zoetheid. Carbonatie zeer aangenaam ( mild ). Niet de meest typische vertegenwoordiger ( ik houd wel van wat originaliteit ) van het genre maar zeker de moeite waard.

Pedrens (219) - SPAIN - APR 7, 2016
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 Grata sorpresa con esta birra...cerezas, ácetico, levadura, malta tostada, madera...en boca se hace más presente la madera, y algo de cuero y un pelin más dulce de lo que el aroma te dice. Bastante bastante compleja con nuevos matices en cada trago. Mejora bastante a medida q calienta. Habrá q volver a catarla.
