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.

Batch 16 2012. Pours a dark amber with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is oak and dark fruits. Medium mouthfeel with plum, figs, oak, and light tart finish. Good.

Marduk (2990) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 4, 2014
750ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy copper color. No head. Almonds, peanuts, earthy, sour, woody, yarrow in aroma. Herbal, yarrow, mint, earthy sour taste. At some point I get dark chocolate as well (just for a millisecond or three). Although I can’t taste alcohol sense of strength is there. Nice one.

750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop)
Slightly vegetal, artichokey, dusty and nutty - chestnutty, hint of mint spearmint, but dust too dominant. Gentle carbonation, a bit watery. Yup, chalky mint. Simple red ale body, very little sourness. Very disappointing. More herbal and again minty later. Does cover the 8% well, but that’s about as positive as I can be.

Lectvay (157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottled labeled 2007. Been holding on to this one for a while, and started to get worried it might be deteriorating. Nothing to worried about. Delicious. A little bit, spicy, peppery, funky horse blanket type wild flavors, tastefully balanced.

VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle (750ml): Hazy, brown and no head. Malty, old oak, sour, lactic, sour red fruit, rhubarb and hints of citrus. Dry, moderate to highly sour and low bitterness. Unripe fruit and citrus. Clean, lactic. Not bretty. Layers, food friendly. Very interesting. Amazing cleanliness for an extremely sour beer.

veronneaupy (179) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Bière légèrement effervescente qui laisse la place à un goût boisé qui perdure en bouche. Le goût surette n'est pas agressif et est accessible à tous. À l'œil, on perçoit une bière trouble et ambrée qui remplie les promesses du brasseur. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Buongiorgio00 (917) - - 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 (679) - 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 (2208) - 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
