(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.

zathrus13 (1764) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 Pours a very cloudy brown, with a tan head. Aroma is malt, oak/wood, and sour fruit. Flavors are sour fruit, malt, wood, and lesser bits of hops and smoke. The sourness is not overdone. Very interesting and complex. Thanks to ClarkVV for this one.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 05’ bottle courtesy of ClarkVV in trade. Now available in MI. Sweet! Pours medium to dark brown, no head to speak of, all three bottle leaked in transit (bad caps). Aroma is very woodsy with alot of sour cherry. Initial flavor is vinegar with very little fruit. The more it warms the more sour it gets, takes awhile for the fruit to come through. When it does, it’s very lemon like mouth puckering. Very well done.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Bottle. Nose-very rich sour woody and slightly fruity nose. Very dark almandine body with a thick film of bubbles. Taste-first taste reminds me of smoked lemonade. Don’t ask me why. Notes of dilute lemon juice, tart cherry, lots and lots of wood, some residual sweetness, very, very light smoke, and white wine. In a word, this beer is woody.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Sampled at Logan’s RateBeer tasting. Hazy mahogany body with fine particles and a persistent, uniform tight beige head. Aroma is of quality fruit vinegar, toasted vanilla, overripe sour cherries, and bright red wine. Mostly dry flavor of cherries, young figs, and soft, aged vinegar. Just enough residual sugar to make this palatable and pleasing on the tongue. Does not disappoint. This is great stuff.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 4, 2005
If you like sour fermented beer this is for you. Strong sour apple aroma. Dark body with small off white head that disipates. Sour is stong to start out with for flavor. Settles down to a more moderate sour fruit flavor. Does taste more like a cognac than a beer. Dry aftertaste on the palate as these beers are. Thanks Degarth for the trade.

Sampled out of the bottle, thanks to Jason! Pours a dark murky brown, no head. Aroma is big, smooth wood notes go along with the sour apples and cherries i’m smelling. Flavor is moderatly sour, very balanced and complex brew. Perfect sour dry finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Done side by side with Zoetzuur and La Folie. This was the winner. Poured a clear very dark orange-ruby color with a thin tan head. Aroma was tart and fruity with light leather that got stronger as the beer warmed. Light alcohol was also present. Flavor was fruity with a woody middle and mild acidic finish. Medium body.
