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.

Hazy yellow, thin white head. Sour, yeasty, green apples and herbs in aroma with some grassyness. Flavour is lemony and acidic. Slight bitter finish. Refreshing.

[Bottled RBESG 2006] Thanks to Knut Albert for bringing this delicasy to Göteborg! Murky yellow colour. Aroma is loaded with this and that: herbs, cheese, berries, almond paste. Wonderfully sourish, yet pleasantly and laid back so to speak. Flavour is apple cake with a smooth mouthfeel, with sparkling caramel notes. Fluffy mouthfeel. Very complex. I prefer this mild version, it seemed to be more complex than the sour version.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2006
Bottled (thanks KnutAlbert). Hazy nutbrown colour, mediumsized beige head. Arina if sour and dry fruits and a bit alcohol and nuts as well. Flavour is fruitish at first, then it turns butterish and caramellish. Flowery hops are domintaing in the finish. Aftertaste is fruits and nuts. Lovely balance. Some marsipan also noteable.

Aroma is yeasty and vinous, with some grassy hops. Taste is similar with a long finish which made me drink more.

Dusty aroma of grapes. Cloudy amber pour with floaties and a thin white head. The flavor consists mostly of grapes. The body is light to medium with a dusty mouthfeel. While not being bad this feels like a poor man’s version of Panil Barriquée.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2006
A hazy deep red beer, which pours with a huge brown head. The aroma is sour with notes of wood, vinegar, berries, and brown sugar. The flavor is both sweet and sour - the acidit running along the sides of the tongue. The flavor has notes of sour grapes, berries, wood, and metal. It starts out with the more fruity notes, but then they fade away to make room for the woody and metallic notes, which in turn gives it a very dry finish.

Rastacouere (6130) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Quickly fading to nothing head covers a cloudy brownish orange body. Rather dry dusty character emerges from the nose. Raspberry bushes, branches with concrete and dullish jammy aspects betray a heavy yeastiness. Light cherries and faint orange juice procure a rather juicy feel, but it’s extremely dusty all the same. Light bodied, restrained fruitiness. Poorer than expected.

Any first impressions?
-A scant ring of foam decorates the discolored yeast universe.
-Dusty red grapes and bubblegum disapppoint, compared to the classy, confident Sour version.
-Leafy dryness and yeasty irregularities form a stale flavor spectrum.
-Large bubbles seem to thin out the body.

What if you dig deeper?
-The fruitiness isn’t as clearly defined as the Sour’s.
-Sourness is tame, and practically non- existant.
-The dusty dryness screeches in the back.
-I don’t care what they say, the end result here is entirely different from the Sour version’s, and even when I take it as a unique entity, I still don’t appreciate it.

Bottled on June ’05.
