Note: this is the same recipe as Barriquée Sour, but it doesn’t get infected with lactobacillus bacteria and aged in sterilized barrels.
Originally it was the only version available outside of North America; then followed by the Barriquée Sour European version (that is not produced anymore); nowadays also the Barriquée Sour is available in Europe.

I thought I bought the sour version but after some research I found out this is just the mild. Pours clear and dark ruby red with good white head. Aroma smells like a good amount of tart cherries. Taste is not quite the sour I expected obviously.. was tart and bitter., earthy like an expired aged ale

(bottle) clear to cloudy (bottom) amber with a small brown head; aromas of wet wood, horse blanket, sour cherry; sour flavour with a long medium sour finish, like a decent lambic

Opaque cherry / brown body with slight carbonation and a short bubbly white head that dissipates quickly but leaves enough lacing to remind you that this is beer. Summer fruit, apples in the aroma and dry hops. At first bitter apples, grapes dominate the taste but this gives way to a white wine dryness in the finish with a lasting dry and bitter aftertaste. Similar to a chardonnay in many respects, this beer is great.

rulas3 (107) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 27, 2012
Apariencia: color castaño oscuro con toques rojizos, como una Oud Bruin, corona contundente, compacta y persistente, de color beige. Carbónico constante. Aroma: intenso y complejo, un poco ácido, manzana verde, ligeras notas de vinagre de módena, terroso, frutos rojos, cerezas. Sabor: cuerpo medio, muy complejo, un poco ácido, toques de madera, ligeros ahumados, vainilla, frutos rojos, un poco de café. Sensación muy refrescante. Carbónico medio. Alcohol muy bien integrado. creo que es una gran cerveza, muy equilibrada y compleja pero a la vez muy bebible. Resultado de una elaboración muy compleja, ya que pasa por tres fermentaciones, 15 días en acero inoxidable, 90 días en barricas de roble francés de coñac y burdeos y 30 días en botella. Por el sabor diría que lleva Brett, pero no lo puedo asegurar y la información al respecto no me queda muy clara

375 ml bottle in Germany with much thanks to Jonas. Pours a murky dark brown with little head. Aroma is sour cherries and some malt and spices. Taste is mellow compared to the aroma. With lots of malt some sour cherries and fruit followed by alcohol. Palate is slight pushing the smooth limits but still good. I liked this one.

Dark brown red pour with a very bubbly and noisy head. Scent filled the room upon opening and only got stronger on the pour. Boozy, herby. clove and maybe cinnamon aroma. Very strong taste. Mix of sweet and sour with a very tart kick. Somewhat boozy, which is something I do not mind at all. Has some wine like character. The tart bitterness reminds me a bit of a lambic. Rather enjoy this one, best beer I have had in quite a while.

750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy light brown with a creamy thin biege head. Aroma is a light sour (was expecting a regular belgian ale) with some yeast and cherry. Carbonated in the mouth, mild sour with some sweetness, finish becomes more sour along the sides of the mouth and gently fades. Enjoyed this much more then I was expecting - will have to pick up a few more bottles - think they would be great in the summer.
