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.

harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2008
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest 08. Harry gave us the chance to do a side by side tasting with the European sour. Woody sour nose. Nice sourness in mouth, really rather good and nice than the Euro mild. Not hugely sour, more tartness really. Pippy raspberry is rather attractive. Nice.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, golden-brown beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lightly vinegar-ish and lemony, with a faint touch of caramel maltyness. Dried fruit notes too. It’ rather tart on the palate, not as tart as expected though, with a pleasant carbonation level. Medium to full body. The flavor has a faint nutty, caramel touch, with lemon, a faint touch of vinegar and some funky notes. Long finish with lemon, caramel and nuts. Sort of disappoints this one, was expecting more sourness, at least judging from what I remember the European version to be. But it’s definitely not a bad beer anyway. 130815

Theis (13521) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2007
Bottle at ØLbaren - thanks to engelsmann. Unclear dark amber - offwhite head. Teeth biting dry/sour fantastic. Cherry, berries, brown sugar, medium to high sourness, light bikeglue, light wood. Dry finish. Very nice.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Reddish brown colour. Major oaky aroma, slight tart cherries. Bright, fruity, voluptuous. The flavour follows suit with lots of bright oakiness and deep cherry. Slightly creamy body. A mature, refined brew.

Travlr (12260) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Dark reddish amber with a sweet sour aroma. Full bodied, malty and complex. In the style of Rodenbach, but with slightly less body. Might age well, worth a try.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
(750ml bottle, 2005 vintage) Pours a murky reddish-brown body with a spare white head. Nose of cherry and oak. Flavor of oak barrel, sour cherries, and earthiness with a dry finish. The oak over powers rather than complementing this flemish sour, thus weakening the flavor of the wild yeast and bacteria.

Cloudy red-brown body with tan head. Aroma is moderately sweet, cherry, some sour, light wood, faint mint. Taste is medium sweet, sour cherry, light lemon, wood. Medium body, light acidity, somewhat watery. Alcohol well hidden.
