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.

Doofgoblin (415) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2013
Awesome. Pours a brownish rust color with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Aroma is sour, apple, oak, and "aged" funk. Taste is sour, apple, raisin, rum, and other beer aroma similar to the ones found in the "brett" varieties. Palate: plenty of carbonation adds to the complexity and bitterness. Finishes dry and aromatic, nice!

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.

danielecamo (738) - ITALY - DEC 14, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore marrone con riflessi rubino molto evidenti. Schiuma fine e mediamente persistente. Aroma pulito, acidità in evidenza, frutta rossa sotto spirito, ciliegia, fragola. Al palato scorre bene nonostante la gradazione, sentori legnosi, acidi, di cantina seguiti di nuovo da ciliegia e fragola con finale secco.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
nteresting lightly sour, vinous, dusty, red wine aromas (a bit of redundancy there, but this is free flow). Reddish amber color (with smallish chunks) and no head. Medium body with virtually no carbonation. Flavor is oak, red wine, perhaps some cherry. This is better than many red wines! The finish is oak, cherry pits, and a very light sour.
