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.

Buongiorgio00 (739) - - JAN 12, 2014
Birra commovente, a cui davvero non manca nulla. Gusto molto ricco e complesso, che evoca spiriti caramellati e fruttati insieme, il tutto legato da una forte presenza vinosa e decisamente acida che ammalia il palato, persistente e penetrante. Corpo setoso che scivola già senza che ci si accorga degli otto gradicelli anonimi. S-p-e-t-t-a-c-o-l-a-r-e.

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Yowza! Okay, we have a strong oak barreled nose, reminiscent of an American bourbon. Then we have ripe, fruity tartness...enticingly sour, followed by a dry, lingering bitterness that is subtle but also tannic and quite wine-like. Old beer envelopes the mouth and nose. The mouthfeel is tremendous, like a slick or velvet or oily characteristic. Full and lush and yummy mouthfeel. This is an incredibly delicious and complex brew. I loved every sip and felt like I had gone on a wonderful journey with this 750ml bottle, as I watched Wolverine on Blu-ray. An outstanding beverage and I can’t wait to slowly consume this stuff again!!

Vignale (2005) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2013
Flaska från De Molens webshop drucken med ölföreningen julöl 2013. En relativt torr, stram och syrlig relativt klassisk flamländsk rödöl. Men inte svårdrucken och syran är ganska snäll och balanseras av en lätt sötma. Lätt kropp och fina bäriga smaker. Körsbär, syrliga plommon, lingon och trä. Riktigt god.

Copper, slight haze, beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, tart cherries, toasty malt, very light hint of plastic. Flavor of toasty malt, tart cherries, some nutty notes, light puckery acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wolfbass (891) - Firenze, ITALY - OCT 31, 2013
La mia birra numero 800 non poteva essere un troiaio. L’aspetto mi garba da morire, un bel mogano con riflessi rossastri. Leggera la schiuma che svanisce quasi subito. Aroma decisamente acetico, ma anche molto cantinoso. In bocca è elegante, sapida e acidula, ma riesce a soddisfare il palato in modo molto equilibrato nonostante la complessità della birra. Giù il cappello...

BiereLuc (871) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
(750 ml - brassin à 9%) - Bière brunâtre, voilée, aux reflets rubis-bourgognes. La mousse est mince. Au nez, c’est fruité, boisé, sauvage... et ça se confirme en bouche pour faire palpiter les papilles. L’acidité est saisissante, ce qui donne une certaine sensation de viscosité sur la langue. Des pointes de petits fruits rouges viennent se mêler à merveille à cette concoction plutôt bien foutue. Le boisé rapplique en finale, mais plus en sensation qu’en saveurs. Plaisir acétique, quand tu nous tiens!

The aroma is tart and medium. The taste is not as tart as I was expecting. Has a little weird taste to it but good.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
0.75l bottle. A massive fluffy beige top on this one! Really good retention on it as well. The beer itself is blurry and deep dark cognac colored. On the nose I get a nice subtle ripe and sweet fruits with a light vicious vinegar hint in the background. Mhm.. Really enjoying this aroma. It’s actually most sweet, while I was expecting it to be vinegar acidic. Not extreme but definitely nice! The taste has lovely tones of vinous red wine, lots of wood and tannin’s, old dedicated leafs, red berries and brown sugar. Lots of flavor, yet it’s a bit watery. Soft oily on the mouthfeel with a gentle prickling carbonation level. Not even a hint of the alcohol here, but it has hints of Christmas. Pine needles and something almost spicy. This is something I could drink quite a lot of. 24.07.2013

Light body, dry. Very easy to drink. This is batch 12 bought at Rincon Valley, Santa Rosa, Ca. A very nice, refreshing sour. It is a bit thin but I don’t think it takes away from the flavor or drinkability.
