(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.

madsberg (10308) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled (Got it via trade with Sliffy. Thanks a million) Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Earthy, light sour vinegarlike aroma. A bit like a gueuze, but definately not as sharp and clean. Flavour has chocolate, earthnotes and fruitnotes. Very complex and challenging. Still a bit bland compared to other speciments of the style like Duchess and Rodenback. Medium bodied. Has a nice sweetish sourness in the end. Very nice and refreshing brew, that I think lack a bit in powerness.

Tasted at Belgium Comes to Cooperstown, July 16, 2005. Hazy red brownish ale with thin off-white head. Light sour cherries in aroma, with barnyard notes, and grapes. Sourness abounds in mouth, pleasing and definitely flemish. Wonderful ground cherries with light lactic notes, vinegar, balanced horseblanket. Rich and smooth. Mmmmm...to style 100%

Flavors of sour fruit[mild cherry character], oak, some vinegar notes, and cork with a sour, dry finish. A VERY tasty beer!!!

BeerandBlues2 (9765) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2005
750 mL bottle from ClarkVV. Pours crisp and clean dark nut (hazel) brown with ruby highlights as you turn it in the light and a few tiny tightly packed bubbles clinging to the glass. A light brown foamy head sits atop the sour goodness and exhibits a creamy tiny bubbled lined lacing that lazily falls back to its perch on the brew. Lightly musty aged oak shortly greets your nose but is quickly replaced by tart cherry/berry malted aromas with faint caramel notes. As soon as the tart acidic sour cherry mouthful hits your tongue, the saliva glands kick into high gear. Nice tartness that is enough to overpower the alcohol content which remains unnoticeable throughout the bottle. The flavor ends moderately acidic with musty aged oak notes and of course, tart cherry. Medium bodied, almost full bodied, palate with an excellent balanced mouthfeel that is somewhat dry except for the saliva kicked up because of the tartness. Excellent brew to accompany an acidic Italian dish, to replace the traditional red wine.

Bov (9602) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 2, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 750 ml bottle - reddish-brown colour, big creamy and slightly brown-tainted head, nice lacing, prodigiously complex aroma: wood, hazelnuts, touch of vinegar, olive and bread; high carbonation, robust malt body, strong and rich acidity, the finish is dry and sour showing some more woody and dark fruity notes - thanks to fiulijn for this mind blowing beer !

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2014
750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop)
Slightly vegetal, artichokey, dusty and nutty - chestnutty, hint of mint spearmint, but dust too dominant. Gentle carbonation, a bit watery. Yup, chalky mint. Simple red ale body, very little sourness. Very disappointing. More herbal and again minty later. Does cover the 8% well, but that’s about as positive as I can be.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark maroon appearance with a reddish cream colored head. Sour, lactic, woody, raspberry, cherry, a touch dusty nose. Mild to moderate sourness, lactic, acetic, medium woodiness, cherry, raspberry, strawberry flavor. Acetic notes are stronger on the finish. Mild puckering, sour dark berry aftertaste. Nice sour that actually isn’t that hard to find.
