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.

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 20, 2006
I’ve been looking forward to this beer for a long time - and it didn’t disappoint me - even though I don’t give it 4+. Unfortunately it has slipped out of the Top 50 before I sampled it ;-)

A muddy brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is lovely sour combined with woody notes. The flavor is quite complex with notes of berries - especially cowberries, wood, and light notes of red wine on a lovely sour background. Very nice - but I’d like higher carbonation, since I think that would bring out even more nuances from this nice brew.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Pours an almost unclean orangey brown with a creamy, beige head. Tart nose with distinct oaky touches. Medium body, fantastic complexity between acidity, oak and yet still an underlying, caramelish sweetness. Sour to the extent that it challenges and teases my taste buds but never kills them. A true pleasure. 170406

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Bottled. Brownish ruby colour with mediumsized beige head. Sour fruits in aroma with some hints of barnyard. Flavour is sour fruits and earthy with hints of wood. Very nice brew, and definitively the best Italian beer I have had so far. Thanks to MrWalker for bringing this to the ratingsession.

omhper (19985) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2006
[Bottled, thanks MrWalker!] Cloudy mahogany colour- Aroma of coffee and sour cherries. Tart and really roasty. The body is firm, but given it’s size impressively slender. Wood is evident, as is the vinegary acidity. Falvourwise it’s not far off Cuvée de Tomme, but less potent and more drinkable. A wonderful beer!

Zwanze Day at the Kernel. Thanks to Paul. Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Lightly sour dried fruits. Whisper of acid. Mild raw malts. Dry finish. Bit messy.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2011 2009-10-28, bottled October 2006, 3 years old, 9-5-7-3-16=40
Dark brown color; creamy head. The aroma is intensively vinous and fruity; sour grapes; oak; fresh actually. Good body structure; positively there is still some sweetness; an average caramel flavor, with evident sour and fruity presence; quite rare for Sour beers, the mouthfeel is rather smooth; the sourness in the end is limited, and clearly all bitterness is absent.
It’s very fresh, but apparently less complex than I remembered.

Cloudy dark amber color; big head. Incredible aroma: woody, a bit sour, vinous, malty, olives; really complex.
Good body structure, quite dry at the end, quite sour but still with some sweetness, and with the necessary astringency… Very complex and wonderful!
Thanks Andrea (Profane) for this incredible beer!
