(Editor’s note) Originally this version was available for the American market, while in Europe a version less sour was available; as of today, only this version of Sour is produced, so if you got a recent vintage you had this one.
The Sour has a sticker to differenciate it from the sticker-less Barriquée Mild, which has not been inoculated with lactobacillus bacteria.

Prufrockstar (1980) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Draft at Slow Boat. This is a cool spot. Deep dark reddish pour. Small head, some lacing. Oak, leather, well-balanced balsamic tartness and malty, lightly sweet backing. After acclimating over the first few sips, this just gets more and more delicious.

joeneugs (5756) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 23, 2016
On tap at the Modern Times Festival of Funk. It pours an amber color with an off white head. The aroma has sour berries with some sweet tarts. The flavor has a good balance of fruity, berry-like tartness and sweeter fruit flavors. Clean. Good stuff.

umich03jm (3493) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2016
2006 bottle. Aroma is red wine, cherry skins, and light vinegar. Tastes like red wine and cardboard. Probably should’ve opened this a bit sooner. Dry finish. I’m gonna look for a fresher bottle to try again some time.

mansquito (5341) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle: Pours reddish with a very small loose head. Aroma is vinegar, wine, wood, sugar, and some fruitiness. Taste is moderately sour. Carbonation is very light. Sourness maximizes around the finish and libgers on to the aftertaste. Veey drinkable while also being a little intense. Glad to finally have this beer.
