(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.

BMMillsy (1255) - Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Batch #16, 2012, Bottle #2161. Pours dark purple-brownish red from the bottle. Small bit of cream colored head. aroma of sour cherries, blackberries. Big heavy mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Lots of fruit up front with a good tart punch and dry oak finish. Cheery, blackberries, and grapes. Not sure I like the big body on this and tend to enjoy more effervescent sours. Not bad, but I could do without it as well.

Doofgoblin (281) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2013
Awesome. Pours a brownish rust color with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Aroma is sour, apple, oak, and "aged" funk. Taste is sour, apple, raisin, rum, and other beer aroma similar to the ones found in the "brett" varieties. Palate: plenty of carbonation adds to the complexity and bitterness. Finishes dry and aromatic, nice!

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a hazy reddish-brown nice head and little lacing. Fruity aroma of sour cherries with pleasant sourness, a tiny bit of oak. Taste is fruity, cherries, abit of berries, some lacto, little caramel sweetness (really just a bit), oak, vinious presence. Medium-low mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very surprised by this one. I might buy a few more next time i go to ontario.

Bottle from the LCBO. Just getting into sour beers and I quite enjoyed this one. Lots of vinegar upfront--initially I thought too much vinegar for my tastes, but it smoothed out. Enjoyed the bitterness, the sourness, and the array of fruits underneath the initial bite. A complex beer, for sure, but at 14$ I might only grab it once more (at least for this year)!
