(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.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle from Batch 8, 2007. A: The pour is a fairly typical dark amber color with plenty of brown to it. The head is somewhat mild in volume and off-white in color. M: Quite fruity for a Flanders red ale. Lots of cherries, green apples, and a bit of lemon. Plenty of oak, a hint of vinegar, and some light sweetness. D: A bit lighter in flavor than I would have expected. The fruitiness translates well to the flavor, as do the vinegar and oakiness. There is, however, a bit of a metallic flavor at times. M: The body seems a bit thin, but for a sour beer it is a bit more forgivable. Moderate and tinging carbonation. D: Pretty easy beer to drink, but not all that impressive. Maybe a more current vintage would change things a bit.

Oakes (13913) - 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.

bhensonb (12951) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 9, 2008
750 mL bottle; bottled in 2006. Interesting lightly sour, vinous, dusty, red wine aromas (a bit of redundancy there, but this is free flow). Reddish amber color (with smallish chunks) and no head. Medium body with virtually no carbonation. Flavor is oak, red wine, perhaps some cherry. This is better than many red wines! The finish is oak, cherry pits, and a very light sour. There is some bitter, but I think it’s the oak. Three fermentations. Good result.

bu11zeye (12367) - 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.
