COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(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.

traditional Flemish aged for 3 months in cognac barrels?! nice. just a touch of wood, sweet and pepper from the barreling. otherwise very traditional sweet and sour. very sour when it first hits the mouth, but not so much during or after. i thought this one was quite good and on the back end of the better sours out there. about to have a Red Poppy and Framboise to get some perspective!!!"

750ml bottle from notes. Pours a hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a nice sour cherry, oaky, tart/sour acidity with a funky character with a slight medicinal note. The flavor is oaky, tart cherry, slightly medicinal, mild to moderately sour with good amount of acidity, somewhat vinous, acidic, and dry at the finish.

Scopey (7406) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
2009 Bottle, batch 11, #1548 with a Shelton Bros label shared at Kernel Zwanze day. It pours murky deep mahogany brown with a small dirty beige head. The nose is earthy, wood, damp leaf, light vinegar, dirt, vanilla and soft fruit. The taste is damp wood, earthy, leaf, some acidity, sherbet, berry skin, balsamico and light vinous notes with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not as acidity as one might expect from a sour brown with decent age on it. Solid sour brown by any measure.

666ale (65) - Edimburg, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Their best beer, an oud bruin in the flemish tradition, very tart and lactic with a complex taste and a touch of caramel, but no residual sweetness and a tartness by the red wine oak barrels.

Ruddy brown pour, nice offwhite head. Aroma is tart with notes of barnyard and coconut. Flavor is tart and fruity. Good, but not as complex as I’d expect from such a high rated sour.
