COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

2011-07-14, half bottle, bottled 2006-07, 5 years old, 7-4-7-3-15=36
Dark brown color; the carbonation is low, and there is a small frothy head. Aroma with notes of caramel, wine, wood, light vinegar. Good body strength; also because of the low carbonation, the mouthfeel is quite round and smooth; there is a good flavor of caramel, with a nice woody trace and just light sourness; also a light fruity touch. The final is getting weaker, without much bitterness, and a bit dusty.
The age has softened this beer, creating some harmony, although it won’t probably get any better because of the lack of acidity.

Exuberant bottle; pours a hazy dark amber color with not much head. The aroma has some caramel, sweet wood and mild vanilla. Good body strength, some malt and soft caramel, smooth mouthfeel and a very pleasant vanilla flavor. The final is too weak and short, not enough bitter. A pleasant Bourbon Strong Ale.

amorphiss (35) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Bottle consumed in Rome. Light brown color with creamy head. Aroma was very oak and a little bit sour. The flavor was also very oaky, fruity, and a little bit sour. Reminded me slightly of a JP beer. I liked this.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2007
Bottle, 8%. Weakly sour aroma. Cloudy orange/brown colour with small floaties at the bottom. Small, light brown, big-bubbled head. Sour flavour, malty and woody, all in good balance. Nice subtle sourness in the finish, too. Harmonious and strangely drinkable.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2007
Cloudy amber. Aroma of wood, hints of vague fruits and nuts. Toasty, with light fruits. Hints of oiliness. Yeah, this is kind of bland. Needs more tartness.

Much thanks to hopdog for bringing this one to the tasting... Appears a semi transparent mahogany toned amber with a small, creamy, beige head. Little speckles of lacing are left around the glass. Smell is wheaty, grainy, light funk, brown sugar, cherry, subtle vanilla, and cherry wood. Taste is a sugary version of the aromas but more balanced. Mouthfeel is mildly sweet, smooth, and silky.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2007
37.5cl bottle acquired in trade with Boutip (thanks!). Bottle labeled May ’06. Poured a deep and cloudy amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of dark fruits, yeast, earthy, and caramel apples. Tastes of dark cherries, caramel, wood, and yeast. Very mild sour/tart finish. It was interesting to tastes the differences as we tasted this along with the European Sour & the Sour versions.

Poured a ruby color with a medium sized, creamy, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherry, oak, must, earth, and a bit of plastic. Taste of vanilla, more wood, cherries, berries, yogurt, and chocolate, with a very light tartness. Thanks Steve!

Gr0ve (2157) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2006
750 ml bottle. Copper coloured with a little red. Very small off-white head. Outhouse. Toilet paper and wooden aromas. Wet paper. Distant sourish aromas. Light sourness at first with a small distinct prickly sensation on the tongue. Then a mellow caramelly malt flavour balanced by soft oak. Hint of vanilla. Very gentle in fact. Mellow finish with a smooth drying mouthfeel.
