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.

Bottle shared with piscator- thanks Kris! Pours a hazy off red with fluffy long lasting white head. Nose- very earthy, wood, light cherry. Taste- tart cherry, green apple, very dusty and earthy. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Finishes thicker than most sours. Nice stuff

Philip (436) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2006 Bottle purchases at the Corkscrew, Urbana. Poured with some apple spice tea bread that made for a nice pairing. Very low carbonation, to the point where I thought I had sampled a bad bottle, although a second bottle revealed the same. Flavors of apple cinammon, nutmeg, lots of clove, brown sugar, molasses, and vanilla. Certainly sour and pervasively earthy with a warming alcohol finish. A bit more carbonation would be appreciated to draw out the flavors. RERATE: Another bottle, and I’m still annoyed by how little carbonation is in the beer. Flat.

Bottle from Sprikle. Ok, I like sours alot and this is a great beer for that. Nice acidic aftertaste. Great woodsy and sour apples. Very light mouthfeel with tons of carbination. I have been wanting to try this for a long time and i finally did. well worth it.

bottiglia all’Open. Buonissima, sour ale leggera come una carezza, da berne e riberne a non finire.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy amber/brown. Aroma is Shiraz wine. Earthy, wood, dark berries, port wine, prunes. Oily in the mouth. Everything from the aroma follows in the flavour. Almost cranberry juice/shiraz tannic quality. Bready and sour but not overwhelming. No unnecessary sweetness added for the faint of heart. I opened this December 2011 bottle as soon as I bought it, and its delightfully balanced. If THIS is sour ale, I’m a convert.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Bottle, 2006 edition. Pours reddish brown with practically no head. Aroma of cherries , apple peel, wine and wood. More cherries and wood in the taste, nice sour characteristic, not overpowering. Slightly acidic and not much carbonation, pretty smooth. Nice fruity taste, this is enjoyable.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Pours red with small wisp of head. Sour funkiness hits you from the start with hints of raspberry/cherry. Very tart from start to finish almost hiding some of the complexity of this ale, but as it warms you pick up more vinuous characteristics. Finishes very dry.

Lele (422) - Padova, ITALY - SEP 15, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone mogano scuro, abbastanza limpido, schiuma beige, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: acetoso, aceto balsamico, frutti rossi, legnoso e, stranamente, intonaco! GUSTO: attacca con un acetico deciso, poco fruttato. Sentori legnosi, vinosi, leggerissimo luppolato alla fine. Corpo leggero, carbonizzazione molto bassa (un po’ troppo). Fino ad ora la migliore sour italiana, ma ne ho assaggiate di più complesse, soprattutto del Belgio.

Dpaquet (418) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a hazy reddish-brown nice head and little lacing. Fruity aroma of sour cherries with pleasant sourness, a tiny bit of oak. Taste is fruity, cherries, abit of berries, some lacto, little caramel sweetness (really just a bit), oak, vinious presence. Medium-low mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very surprised by this one. I might buy a few more next time i go to ontario.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2008
A mild sour ale with subtle flavors of vinegar, sweet fruit, and oak. Thin and watery. There are more flavorful offerings out there, and this one did not live up to its price tag (15$).
