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.

Light body, dry. Very easy to drink. This is batch 12 bought at Rincon Valley, Santa Rosa, Ca. A very nice, refreshing sour. It is a bit thin but I don’t think it takes away from the flavor or drinkability.

Fritz123 (1360) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Old bottle of US made sour. Pours a reddish brown hue with no head or lacing. The aroma is almost a vinegar with cherries and blackberries. The taste is tart cherries and mulberries with a muted sourness. Was expecting more sour. Somewhat acidic. It was fine but was just expecting a little more.

suprchunk (2672) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
On tap at a Cantillon event. Dark pour. Small head, if any. No lacing. Not a lot of funk in the nose and not as sour as I would have hoped. Not bad. Some plummy notes in both the mouth and nose. Slight sweetness with a bit of sourness. Maybe the newer ones are more sour.

Emeister84 (1611) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2015
Tart red berry aromas, cranberry-like, somewhat alkaline. Hazy red with deep orange highlights and a small, yet lasting, white head. Pretty sour, a little funky, red berry flavors, some lime-like citrus flavors. Medium bodied.
