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.

A great sour ale. It drinks like a good champagne with up-front cidery tartness. It is incredibly drinkable and refreshing, which is a problem given its relative cost and alcohol content.

Lele (423) - Padova, ITALY - SEP 15, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone mogano scuro, abbastanza limpido, schiuma beige, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: acetoso, aceto balsamico, frutti rossi, legnoso e, stranamente, intonaco! GUSTO: attacca con un acetico deciso, poco fruttato. Sentori legnosi, vinosi, leggerissimo luppolato alla fine. Corpo leggero, carbonizzazione molto bassa (un po’ troppo). Fino ad ora la migliore sour italiana, ma ne ho assaggiate di più complesse, soprattutto del Belgio.

Caoba con espuma marfil. Aromas de frutos rojos, cereza. Cuerpo ligero, con sabor intenso de fruto rojo y final seco con regusto ferroso.

yourilevesque (1361) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Bouteille. Batch #20. Liquide ambré dont la teinte n’est pas clairement définie. Est-ce brun? Rouge? C’est trouble et flou. Tête très timide qui tient étonnement bien la route. Arômes sucrés de caramel, de bois, de vanille, de gâteau. Je suis plus dans la pâtisserie que dans le fruit. Curieux mélange de sucreries et de bois qui semble fonctionner. C’est cet aspect terreux qui me déplaît et me rebute. Beaucoup d’éléments à la fois qui me semblent mal structurés. Saveurs off en bouche. Le sucre s’est amoindri et les notes d’acétone prennent le dessus. Parmi ces saveurs puissantes de raisin, de caramel chauffé et de vinaigre blanc, se situent des saveurs off aussi perturbantes que les arômes. De deux choses l’une: soit la bouteille a mal évolué, soit le brasseur a cherché à trop en mettre dans un même breuvage.
