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.

bu11zeye (12712) - 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.

Scopey (12248) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
2009 Bottle, batch 11, #1548 with a Shelton Bros label shared at Kernel Zwanze day. It pours murky deep mahogany brown with a small dirty beige head. The nose is earthy, wood, damp leaf, light vinegar, dirt, vanilla and soft fruit. The taste is damp wood, earthy, leaf, some acidity, sherbet, berry skin, balsamico and light vinous notes with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not as acidity as one might expect from a sour brown with decent age on it. Solid sour brown by any measure.
