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.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with little head and a trace amount of carbonation. The smell is of tart cherries, with some oak scents as well. The flavor is really smooth. The tart cherries come through, but not in an over bearing manner. As the beer warms the oak flavors come through. A tremendous beer! NOTE, the 2006 version seems to have some fermentation issues. No carbonation, nothing like the previous years.

Pours amber red with a decent off-white head. Aroma is vinegar, funk, oak. Taste is nice and sour with the oak coming through nicely balanced in the finish. Palate is excellent with perfect carbonation and medium body. Very nice sour.

VinegarStroke (314) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle (750ml): Hazy, brown and no head. Malty, old oak, sour, lactic, sour red fruit, rhubarb and hints of citrus. Dry, moderate to highly sour and low bitterness. Unripe fruit and citrus. Clean, lactic. Not bretty. Layers, food friendly. Very interesting. Amazing cleanliness for an extremely sour beer.

Batch # 10 2008 bottle 1058 Pours dark amber color. Not much head to it. Smell isn’t as strong as I was hopeing. Taste is a little milder than I was hopeing. Overall good beer but not as sour as I would like.

Incredible. Bitter, wine-like, sour, very enjoyable throughout. You need to be fairly knowledgeable to accept this as a good beer in North America.

Anova167 (303) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Excited for this one. 2011 batch #14. Poured into my Ommegang tulip-esque glass with a mahogany clear pour. The nose I just what I was expecting - old wood, funk, and a touch of basalmic vinegar. The flavor is initially sour, followed a bit of undesirable graininess. The finish is smooth and woody. Nice beer.

Pour is a hazy brown light head. Aroma is tart grapey peppery sour. Taste is light tart woody grapey earthy tart peppery. Good.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2008
bottle 0048, batch #8. Pours a nice foamy red. Nose is of vinegar, cherries, cranberries, and horsebanket as well as a thin metallic note in the background. Flavors of sour cherries and must are very pleasant. Palate is somewhat thin, but smooth and enjoyable. A very pleasant suprise tasted at the hopleaf.

75cL bottle, thanks Marc, the Alpha King! Brown color, some head but not a bunch. The aroma is really tremendous, sweet and sour like Rodenback, plenty of acetic. The flavor is pretty sour, not too sweet. The oak is pretty pronounced. It does get sweeter as it warms and probably tastes even better. Pretty drinkable actually. Great beer if you are into bacteria! And I definitely am!
