(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.

750ml bottle during poker Friday night. Decided to do a European night which was nice. Pours reddish brown with thin soapy head. tastes of dark cherries, vinegar, tannic, grape skins, oak, and licorice. A touch thin but very tasty.

My first sour and exactly what I expected..decent aroma, golden opaque appearance, tastes not too tart, overall a good first sour experience.

McNeillR (1209) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Murky unfiltered ruby brown with wee bubble trim head. Dip Dab sherbert juicy nose. Really smooth well disguised oxidation before a big upturn unleashing a fresh sour waterfall with touches of cherry. The cognac softness the tartness into a very very quenching finish. So smooth. If you stuck a straw in the bottle and let a non-beer/sour fiend have a sook you’d probably get interesting but very favourable reactions. Balanced at every turn.

Bottle @ ZZT VII, thx to everyone for sharing their bottles. Typical flemish sour aroma, but not really complex enough. Bit thin on the flavor. Maybe on the fresh side.

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Caesar, hazy reddish color, virtually no head. Smell and taste sourish, unripe fruits. For me it’s a bit I too I sour, but it’s a nice beer.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2013
750ml bottle, 2012, Batch #15, Bottle #813. Pours almost opaque reddish brown with a thick, foamy, off-white head. Aroma is tart, bright, woody cherries with noticeable funkiness. Taste is tart cherry skins, oak, wood and tannins and is earthy, citric, vinous and funky. Bright and tart on the palate, fairly sour, really nice carbonation. Great finish. Perfectly balanced; every aspect of this beer is standout. Just terrific.
