(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.

666ale (82) - 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.

des goûts de petits fruits confits qu’on aurait fait macéré dans un vinaigre de vin. son coté ascétique prend de la place et ca ne fait pas le bonheur de tout le monde mais pour moi ça m’allume
